“Now I have routine checks and wear a lot of sunscreen!”
This is San Francisco-based filmmaker Megan Sullivan.
Back in 2015, Sullivan was diagnosed with skin cancer, was in a car accident, and fell off a cliff within the same fortnight.
“It all started in Yosemite Valley where I had been training for three years to climb the nose route on El Capitan,” Sullivan told BuzzFeed. “I was 2,000 feet up when I took a terrifying 50-foot fall. After a fall like that, I started to question everything… from why am I putting myself into these scary situations? What am I trying to prove to myself, or better yet, to the world?”
The bad luck didn’t stop there.
“Like something out of a movie, a week later, I was hit by a car while riding my Vespa and then diagnosed with skin cancer during a routine check-up. In three weeks time I was handed the trifecta of bad luck,” she added.
