Hi! I see you've gotten a ton of feedback, but I just wanted to comment fast. My diagnosis came after they removed a mole from the top of my foot. It had spread to 1 lymph node in my groin and they took 16 or 17 more out. It was stage IV and I did one year of interferon. That was 8 years ago in May. I'm 30 now and I just do my yearly visits to the dermatologist. So don't worry; people definitely beat this! It seriously sucks sometimes, but I figure, you do what you have to do and get it done. But never look at it as something that can't be beat, because I'm still here 8 years later! And this site is amazing. There are so many people that have gone through the same experiences and they are all so nice. Feel free to email me if you ever want to. [email protected] Good luck and stay positive!
