Today MaryAnn was on GOOD Morning AMERICA!! I was so excited for her to be able to share her story. Maryann "merky" was diagnosed with stage 3 melanoma cancer, just by going to the tanning beds.
"The reason I had tanned so much was because I was vain about my looks," said the now 28-year-old Gerber, who is currently cancer-free and blames tanning beds for the multiple mole removals in her life. "Now I have a 6-inch scar down my left cheek. When I would go out, which wasn't a lot because I was ashamed of my face, people would ask if I had been in a car accident, but nobody could guess skin cancer."July 7, 2009 for the desert news.
Im proud to say i dont use the tanning beds anymore! i would spray tan any day then to go through what maryann had too! we love you merky and we are so proud of you!
