“Yes, that is an actual little skin cancer guy that started to grow, and now I have to get surgery to remove it,” he continued, panning to a small mole on his hairline. “So, here we go.”

According to the Cleveland Clinic, basal cell carcinoma is a type of skin cancer that forms in the basal cells of your skin. Basal cells exist in the lower part of your epidermis, which is the outside layer of your skin.

When asked why she “wanted to document” her journey, Munn explained that it was for Malcolm.

“Well, because if I didn’t make it, I wanted my son when he got older to know that I fought to be here,” she said.

“That I tried my best,” Munn added. “You want the people in your life, you want the people that maybe don’t understand what’s going on …to know that you did everything you could to be here.”
