A matter of perspective - Melanoma post-surgery embarrassment

I underwent melanoma surgery early in 2013 involved removing a circular patch of skin (plus hair) on the top left of my scalp. I have a circular bald patch where the flesh was replaced with thin skin via a donor graft shaved from underneath the top right arm.

The bald patch has, at times, embarrassed me, but after the first few years I'm less worried about it.

Today I read this story about Jess Van Zeil and I doubt that I'll ever be embarrassed again. Her left eye was removed in 2015.

You'll see what I mean when your read the story.
