When I attended Bishop Montgomery high school back in the day, I inherited & drove around in a lime green, beat up 1970 Buick Skylark.

It was my first car and may not have been much to look at, but it had a 350 cubic engine that made it faster than a streak of lightening.

It also had a great stereo & booster system so I could crank up the latest 80’s tunes.

As soon as I graduated, I got a job at the West End Tennis Club as a gym instructor/personal trainer and started saving my pennies so I can buy a cooler looking car.

After about four years of blood, sweat and tears combined with being a cheapskate and not spending a dime. I managed to save enough money to buy the car of my dreams…

…a poppy red and white, 1966 convertible Ford Mustang.

I only drove it with the top down. The only time I drove with the top up was when it rained.

I drove it for about 5 years and had to sell it because I moved to practice in Sandusky, Ohio.

I sold it to a gal by the name of Janelle.

She was a 17 year old high school gal, who also happened to be not only my neighbor, but also a close family friend for years. She loved the car more than myself.

It actually fit her better than myself as her hair was red, like the car.

Janelle was one of the sweetest gals you would ever meet.

She was able to drive it for a few years before she was diagnosed with a melanoma that eventually was the cause of her early death.

I never really understood how serious a diagnosis of melanoma could be until I saw how it affected Janelle and her family.

One of my goals in practice is to help my patients avoid not only common musculoskeletal conditions like back pain and headaches, but also serious life threatening conditions like cancer such as melanoma.

I’m not an expert on melanoma, but I’ve invited a skin specialist to give a free lecture on the subject and I think you will find the presentation rather fascinating.

He is speaking in 48 hours (Wednesday 1/23/19 @ 5:30pm) at my office and typically there is a cover charge to hear him speak, but I’ve decided to pay for your seat so the lecture is FREE.

He lectures around the world and the time you can see him is limited.

He also will be hosting a skin clinic the next day, Thursday 1/24/19 from 8:00am-2:00pm, to diagnose and treat melanoma’s along with basal cell carcinoma’s, moles and other skin lesions using a natural and extremely effective method that gets to the root of the problem without surgery or scarring.

There are still spaces available to see Dr. T and you can reserve your spot by replying to this e-mail or calling the office at 310-891-0102.

I sometimes wonder, what would have happened if Janelle had attended a lecture and clinic with someone with the knowledge and skill set like Dr. T.

Even if you don’t have any current skin issues, you should still come to the lecture as one former attender told me, ‘this information may have saved my life.’

Have a GREAT evening!

Dr. Derek Taylor
