5 Stars  Well, at first I was very scared, then as he was talking to me I had felt more at ease. I had known that it had to do with the sun. My mother had always told us girls to wear a hat to cover our face. And also had us wear long sleeves on our arms. Thanks for Dr. Cothern he made me all better. I’m taking more pride in my self by doing what the sun can do to a body. Thank you very much Dr. Cothern. If people ask me whom helped me I sure would tell them. –
