      Just stopping in to drop you all an update and hopefully encourage some people (especially newcomers who may be looking for some positive stories). Had my 8 year checkup at MDA this month. I'm still NED a little more than 8 years from diagnosis of a Clarks IV, Breslow 2.1, mitosis 1 or 2, Stage IIA on my right forearm. Best wishes to all. Always sending prayers for the melanoma community. I'm the 3rd generation in my family (grandma and uncle died from it) so it will always be something I'm passionate about. Take care everyone. I'll be back next year.
