    The husband of a dear friend of my wife's has been diagnosed with multiple myeloma and is receiving treatment. John is in his 50s and is otherwise fit and healthy, so has good reason to believe he'll recover. I'm praying that he does. Those of us who have been diagnosed with melanoma know what it's like to fall into this whirlwind, and since I was invited by my wife's friend to share my insights, I've done so on my melanoma blog (http://www.theogler.blogspot.com).

While everyone's experience with cancer is unique, we can learn valuable lessons from each other. In my blog post, I've enumerated a few of the things I've learned that may benefit John and anyone else in the early stages of cancer treatment, which I hope will lead to a cure or lasting remission. Blessings, PeterO.

      Melanoma is something that can, and will change your life forever….you just take one day at a time.  I truely believe that if it was not for our faith,our stong marriage and faithful friends praying and encouraging us along, this past year (one year on Nov. 24th) we would have been doomed from the start.  You HAVE to have support on this journey you can't do it alone nor would you want to.  So on that note this week before "Thanks"giving I give glory & praise to my God above for giving me another year with my dear husband stage IV.  And to those who don't know my God please find him before it's too late!!
