She was assured that there was no reason for concern, but the symptoms did not recede, and only in 2019 did she finally get the correct diagnosis - basal cell cancer.

The affected area of ​​the skin was removed, as a result of which a scar resembling a Harry Potter scar remained on her forehead.

Erica urges everyone not to repeat her mistakes, not to abuse the tanning bed and be sure to use sunscreen.
