I was going to post about hitting the last DE Wawa this past weekend...but this was way more interesting (no offense Delaware). Little known fact...Bob Marley did not die of lung cancer...but melanoma! I learned today that Bob Marley had a specific kind of melanoma called acral lentiginous melanoma that is commonly found on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and under the finger and toenails. Bob's must have gone unnoticed under his big toe, and spread to his lungs and brain. I read about this in Catherine Poole's (founder of Melanoma International Foundation) book entitled "Melanoma Prevention, Detection, and Treatment." Yale University Press 1998. A very informative and interesting read. RIP Bob.
