      Dick just had his scans and now has been NED for 4 years. He had his last surgery in June, 2006. He took the vaccine made out of his tumor and GMC-SF and then had 4 infusions on anti ctla-4. I have been known as Dick's wife (Dick stage 4) but I think that changed with the new format.

            Absolutely wonderful news!  Melanoma is a very strange one.  What works for one sometimes doesn't work for another. That's why we all have to keep on trying until we hit the right one!!!  Val Stage IV
