Message from SportbikeGirl.com (Tiffany's) father.

I've been in touch with SportbikeGirl.com (Tiffany's) father over the past year and he just sent me this update. I thought the Womens forum would be a good place to post this since we dedicated this forum to her.

We sure do miss you Tiffany!

Hi Robert,

Thought you would like to know that SELF magazine will be doing an article about Melanoma and how it is now attacking younger people at unprecedented rates... The article will be featuring my daughter and your friend, Tiffany as an example . The magazine has a circulation of about 1 1/2 million and should be at major news stands and book stores about the 24th. of July in the August issue...The article should also include Tiffanys love of sportbikes and her desire to help others.... Although the magazine is oriented towards women I would appreciate you mentioning this information on your website sportbikeworld as I know that others would like to read about Tiffany. Also thanks for keeping the banner up about Tiffanys Melanoma foundation, we now have received four emails from people that went into sportbikegirl .com and also tiffanysmelanomafoundation.org these four people after looking at the sites d! id! a self exam and found spots that did not look right, they then followed Tiffanys advice to "see a Dermatologist " to check them out...each of these four people were fortunate, Melanoma was found in the early stages.... the outlook for them is good..... Tiffany is saving lives...I would appreciate it if you could relay this info about the article to any other webmasters you feel appropriate....

sincerely,

Judd Weirbach sad but proud father

Thanks for the info Robert. I'm going to pick up a copy as soon as I find one.

Tiffany is definitely missed, but will never be forgotten.

Thumbs up

That is soooooooooooo great that this effort has helped others catch the cancer in time. I have had several friends my age (30s) diagnosed and treated for it in the last couple of years.

Big props Robert! You should be really happy that you helped

That is awesome.

I don't think I ever posted it here but several members were told personally, I had surgery to remove a malignant melanoma from my right arm about the time we lost Tiff. Luckily mine was caught early and was fairly easy to remove though leaving me with a nice reminder. I have a 4" scar and a nice caved in portion to my right arm. Very minor IMO. My awareness was raised by what Tiffany and what my Mom were both going through. Mom, thank the Lord, got to her skin cancer in time. It is very likely that I will get more and have to keep a constant eye out for this. It is serious stuff.

I will always remember what my Dr. told me, "Yours is 97%-100% curable but make no mistake... Melanoma can and does kill. You will have to watch for it carefully the rest of your life."

Post re: article

I just happen to subsribe to the magazine Self and as I read the article was shocked to turn the page and see a picture of this angel. Tiffany was already gone by the time I joined SBW and found out about SBG but I could tell how precious she was right away. There is this song that I feel is absolutely true and I feel it applies to Tiffany as well...............Only the good die young. I dedicate that song to Tiffany and her sad but proud family. I wish I had gotten the chance to meet her..... anyway that's just my opinion.
God bless her parents for continuing her work.
