      I was diagnosed Stage IV in November 2008 (lymph node right groin), after a malignant mole was removed (May 2006). Everything's been cool since then, but they were watching some spots on my liver… they never changed, but still. MRI a week ago ID'd them as nothing, blood work is good, and Xrays are good.

      I told the nurse at MDA that the longer I hold out, the better I feel about a discovery that will give me a chance if there's recurrence. And in the meantime I keep knocking back the curcumin. She agreed (with all of that) and told me there's more and more on the horizon.

      Keep the faith, y'all.

              Hi Drew,

              Thanks for sharing the news – you have to feel good about the results and more treatments should be available over time as well.  MDA certainly is an incredible place, isn't it?

              Best Wishes,

              Jim

                      Am I missing something? It was my understanding you were stage IIIB as of 11/08?

                          Someone anonymously corrected me–you're right: I was stage IIIB. Guess I still am!

                          What I get for posting between grading papers and rewriting job descriptions. Thanks, whoever you are!
