      Hi Linda,

      I'm so sorry you have had to come back here.  If you are still located in Ontario, I would suggest that perhaps you contact http://melanomanetwork.ca.  Annette Cyr, a melanoma survivor,  has been working closely in regards to melanoma with hospitals, in particularl, the Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto and I am certain she can give you some guidance. Take a deep breath Linda, you can do this.  As Tim says, there has been tremendous improvements in treatment and Princess Margaret is one of the best in Canada.  Best wishes, Val in Motnreal, stage IV
