      forgot to mention I am 53 and have been in full battle with melanoma sice 02/2010. Did BioChemo, Il-2, lung surgery, brain surgery, 3 saps of radiation…….If your mom is in otherwise good health she can get through any of this. One of the hardest parts of this fight is trying to make up your mind on treatments…I am  doing the same thing. My doc gave me the chocie of BRAF or Ipi, I just told him today Ipi. I'll  leave the list of reasons why for another post, I have no idea which one I 'd go with BRAF vs IL-2 is a tough one, when your a responder to either one your a winner….so…geez….I dunno, either one is going to be the right one, they are both good.. She can do it  smiley love, Sharon in Reno Stage IV
