VIDEO: 'I just wish I had known then what I know now' - sister who lost 'best friend' to skin cancer

Barbara Brown lost her older sister Sinead to malignant melanoma, and memories of her sister - her soulmate and best friend, as she calls her - are both precious and painful.

Sinead died just one week after her 31st birthday.

“Skin cancer unfortunately took my sister very early,” Barbara tells Independent.ie.

'She had an open wound in her foot... then we were told she had a brain tumour'

Barbara is now an ambassador for The Marie Keating Foundation and hopes to raise awareness of their Skintervention campaign Skin C(h)ancer.
