By

Former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky is opening up after revealing her skin cancer diagnosis, saying she felt lucky to have caught it early. Now, she’s encouraging fans to stay vigilant about their skincare with the help of the American Cancer Society.

Ali, 36, opened up about her journey with basal cell carcinoma while speaking to outlet Us Weekly, she explained more about what it was like to discover that she had this “highly treatable” form of cancer — and how her perspective has changed since her diagnosis.

“I spent my whole life never getting my skin checked,” she said. “When it came to my skin, I cared if it looked tan, you know, I was laying out on the sun, tanning beds, all of that. As I got older … I started realizing [after] talking to my dermatologist, [they said], ‘Start checking your skin for spots, not sunspots, but more so moles that look irregular.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, wow. Oh, my gosh, I feel so vain. Why didn’t I pay attention to this before?’”
