She was transferred to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville to consultant with specialists. When the day of surgery came, surgeons had to cut out a dime-sized hole out of her right nostril in her nose, as a result of her tanning habit. They replaced the skin with flesh taken off her chest, where she now has a six-inch long scar.
“I want teenagers to see the photo of the hole in my nose so that they know what could happen,” Jade admits “I used to have a sunbed in my house, but I’ve thrown it in the trash. I didn’t want to sell it, because I didn’t want anybody else to go through what I went through. I definitely regret the years of tanning, but in a way I saved my skin at a young age because I got cancer.”
