Marissa Dees, 28-godišnja Amerikanka iz Tampa Bayja u američkoj saveznoj državi Floridi rodila se s abnormalno velikim crnim madežima koji su joj pokrivali tijelo od glave do leđa, a kako se iz istih ne bi razvio opasan rak kože, Marissa se do danas morala podvrgnuti kirurškim zahvatima kako bi uklonila ružne mrlje zbog kojih je, tvrdi, u djetinjstvu bila žrtva zlostavljanja.

Dees je, prenosi The Mirror, već bila na 30-ak operacija, a nakon što joj je proljetos od četvrtog stadija melanoma preminula bliska prijateljica Jennifer Androver, Amerikanka je odlučila svijetu pokazati ožiljke i s javnosti podijeliti svoju životnu priču kako bi pomogla oboljelima, kojih, procjenjuje se, ima oko 500.000.

- Moji madeži nisu samo površinski - prodiru sve do kostiju i mišića, brzo mutiraju i zato sam pod stalnim rizikom od razvoja smrtonosnog melanoma. U djetinjstvu sam se sramila vlastitoga tijela. Mrzila sam kako izgledam i skrivala sam se ispod nekoliko slojeva odjeće. Vršnjaci su mi se rugali, zvali su me 'polupsom' jer su mi iz najvećeg madeža na leđima rasle guste crne dlake. Najgore sam se osjećala kad su za mnom vikali da sam poput ružne kuje dalmatinke - izjavila je Marissa.

Danas, nakon niza operacija, Dees ima ožiljke zbog kojih izgleda kao da je opečena, ali ona ih je, kaže, naučila voljeti.

- Stalno si ponavljam da sam lijepa, izvana i iznutra. Svoje mane pretvorila sam u prednosti i doživljavam ih kao svojevrsni blagoslov - rekla je Amerikanka, koja poslije 30-ak kirurških intervencija i dalje trpi veliku bol u rukama i leđima zbog ozlijeđenih živaca, ali ne predaje se.

Najveća potpora u svemu su joj djeca i zaručnik Norman Green, kojeg je upoznala prije tri godine, a par uskoro planira i vjenčanje.
