‘I hope they learn from me’: Woman with terminal cancer uses TikTok to raise skin cancer awareness

A 27-year-old woman who was diagnosed with stage 4 skin cancer is using TikTok to raise awareness of the dangers of melanoma. 

Kassidy Pierson has earned more than 200,000 followers on TikTok while documenting her life with terminal cancer. Pierson was diagnosed with stage 3 melanoma in 2015 after visiting a dermatologist about a suspicious mole on her thigh. 

In an interview with Buzzfeed, Pierson said that her oncologist opted not to perform any treatments after her mole was removed. A year later, a scan revealed that the cancer had metastasized throughout her body, including her brain, which lead to six years of treatments and surgeries to help manage the cancer.
