      Thanks for responding… I read your bio, lots of info/history and I am humbled. My husband and I are so new in this game that we are still learning the ins and outs ourselves. As far as the TV show goes my husband and I just want to be entertained and at the same time hope the show isn't too far fetched from our reality.

      We ourselves are just learning that melanoma is a skin cancer outside and inside of you that can kill so if this show does nothing but send this message out to the rest of humanity with a little humor then so be it.

      When the show was over I did ask my husband what his thoughts were and what hit home for him. He told me it was Linny's characher when she had trouble telling her family that she had cancer. Just saying the words… he related strongly to this.

      When "we" found out I started sharing this news on my facebook page and our family blog site, this way my husband just had to actually tell our 3 daughters and his boss. It seems to be working out and he appreciates my effort.

      A TV show can't be everything to everybody but I do know one thing… my husband and I could use a little humor in our lives at this point.
