    Some time ago, when this was MPIP, an upstart Don W started a website that to this day isstill maintained by him  hosted by Coleen, a melanoma survivor that runs an internet hosting company where people submitted photos of people and events relative to melanoma who chatted here and met one another.

    It's worth a look to understand the history and community that existed because it matches names with faces.

      I remember how great it was to see the pictures and put faces to the names of my new found friends.  Alas so many have gone now….but loads are still here and kicking up our heels.

        I can't remember if I ever uploaded any pics to melasuckanoma.  I need to check.  I have been so blessed to meet so many of our little group in person.  It's always a fun filled occasion, but bitterweet remembering those we've lost.  I'd love to have another get together.  Maybe centered around an event like we did with the symposium in Chapel Hill.

        Love,

        Amy
