                  Becky. Wonderful news, thanks for posting. My husband also has stage 3 mucosal melanoma and completed his year of interferon on May 9th, so I am always happy to see great scan results from others, especially because this form of melanoma is so rare and tricky! God bless you and Ben, and wishing him many,many,many years of NED. Take care! Valerie ( Phil’s wife)
