    I have spent a significant amount of time reading as much as I can from everyone regarding the BRAF Mek trial.  Everyone has been so positive and their words have truly helped.  My mother in law has stage IV melanoma.  She has multiple tumors under the skin in her torso, legs, and two on her head.  Her scans also show a tumor in her right hip.  Her scan have indicated that the cancer has not spread to any vital organs.  She is tired and has a lot of right leg pain.  Tomorrow is a big day.  She will begin the BRAF Mek trial at the Beth Israel Hospital

    I have spent a significant amount of time reading as much as I can from everyone regarding the BRAF Mek trial.  Everyone has been so positive and their words have truly helped.  My mother in law has stage IV melanoma.  She has multiple tumors under the skin in her torso, legs, and two on her head.  Her scans also show a tumor in her right hip.  Her scan have indicated that the cancer has not spread to any vital organs.  She is tired and has a lot of right leg pain.  Tomorrow is a big day.  She will begin the BRAF Mek trial at the Beth Israel Hospital in Boston.  We are hoping for the best.  I am her primary care giver and I have told her about this website but she is not ready to read it.  I just wanted to say thank you to all those who are sharing their experience.  It has helped me stay knowledgeable about what to expect.
