      Hello everybody , I am Bob, very lucky husband of  " loving wife Deb ". Diagnosed on June 15th, surgery July 22nd and reality bell rang on August 13th, ( my mortality ).

      Deb found your web site a few weeks back and has been sharing stories with me ever since. I am overwhelmed by the courage and power of hope the people of this bullitin board posess. Since I have had some people send me stories from this discussion board of encouragement and support and I feel truely blessed.

      We are on a mission to understand everything possible about Melanoma and the best direction for treatment. We are newbies and can only catch about half the " coded  " conversations but I am certian we will catch on eventually.

      I think we are all in search of the " Holy Grail " for melanoma and I hope it comes soon for all of us. If you have read my wife's stories you can see it all comes from her heart and a huge one she has. She has me read them somtimes before she posts and after I get done I am crying like a baby ( big tough guy, huh ) well that is all for now I just wanted to say hello and thank all of you for being who you are. I hope to write again soon.

      Again thanks for all the love and support…

      Bob
