Hugh Jackman is just getting over his second cancer scare, and is already preaching prevention.
What's crazy is he totally expects to have more skin cancer!
While at a press conference for X-Men: Days of Future Past Hugh spoke openly about his recent fight against skin cancer, saying:
"I'm realistic about the future and it's more than likely that I'll have at least one more but probably many more, which is not uncommon for an Aussie particularly from English stock growing up in Australia where I don't remember ever being told to put sunscreen on. But the beauty of this is it's all preventable, it's just about getting proper check-ups. I can be typical man, a little lazy, I couldn't be bothered and now I’m not lazy at all."
Yeah, we feel like skin cancer is a serious kick in the pants!
Glad Hugh met that call to action with resolve and is doing what he can to help spread the word. He could've been terrified by the big "C" but instead he's fighting and raising awareness.
He's just the best!
Cancer is bad, but what's worse is getting it if it could've been avoided simply by being vigilant.
Everyone start wearing sunscreen all the time and go to the doctor!! It could make a world of difference.
