    Sharon in Reno

       I  (like many) have a host of doctor's to see and they all have their different opinions but most important is moving fast when it comes to the beast… I just got back from seeing my surgeon b/c a CT scan from just this past Monday is showing 2 oval rounded lesions on my left lateral cheat wall that was not on the last scan (4/10)….in english…2 new suckers popped up next to my #4 rib on my backside ….so ….. surgery is set for Aug. 31….and just like that…..I am back in the hospital fighting the beast but just as fast as melanoma pops up I am blasting it back to hell.

      Move fast and don't let no one push you around, when you "know" something to be true then fight for it….Good Luck & God Bless. love, Sharon in Reno Stage IV
