Introduction

The "Hotel Melanoma" moniker is a metaphor for living with my particular brand of cancer. Except for those lucky few of us deemed "cured", all we cancer survivors are guests of one of the many, many branded hotels in the "Hotel Carcinoma" chain. We can check out any time we like, but we can never leave. Meanwhile, let's be livin' it up; and please support cancer education, prevention, and treatment research.

Sun Hurts



This Friday I’ll be ‘celebrating’ the end of Melanoma Awareness Month with a trip to the dermatology clinic to #GetNaked. Probably in front of a crowd, because it’s a teaching hospital. And I have the sneaking suspicion that I won’t get out of that place with all of the skin I came in with.

When it comes to sun safety I “got religion” way too late in life, long after a lot of DNA damage was done to my old hide. But perhaps it’s not too late for you. Don’t hide inside but please cover up and wear some freakin’ sunscreen, okay?

I dislike both the song and the band, so it seems fitting that I commemorate this ‘joyous’ occasion with a butchered version of “Love Hurts” from Nazareth…



Sun hurts, sun scars
Sun wounds, and mars
Any part, not tough
Or strong enough

To take a lot of pain
Take a lot of pain
Sun needs quite a shroud
Moles went up in flame

Sun hurts
Sun hurts

I'm old, I know
But even so
I know a thing or two
I learned, from U

I really learned a lot
Really learned a lot
Sun can be a bain
It burns you without thought

Sun hurts
Sun hurts

Some fools think of tanning beds
Blister bliss, true leatherness

Some fools fool themselves, I guess
They're not foolin' C

I know it isn't true
I know it isn't true
Sun is just a fry
Suede look you will rue

Sun hurts
Sun hurts
Sun hurts

I know skin pale is cool
I know skin pale is cool
Sun is just a fry
Suede look you will rue

Sun hurts
Sun hurts
Sun hurts
