There's lots of hope, Kevin, and many will respond with their personal stories. I would just like to suggest you find the nearest melanoma center and see a specialist there. Melanoma is an odd sort of cancer and you will be best served by someone who works with it exclusively. Where are you? Can you travel?
Also – some Stave IV people on the board have done IL-2 and have shown a durable response so you should start checking on that treatment.
Good luck! You've got some hard work ahead of you but you can do it.
PS – ignore the stats. Five year survival rates are by definition – 5 years old. There are lots of new treatments and lots of survivors.
