      Yesterday was my six year anniversary on Zelboraf.  I’m still taking 720mg 2x a day and my only continuing side effects are photosensitivity, some body rash, and some foot discomfort.

                                        Happy Anniversary indeed!  Congratulations!  Is there any talk of taking you off Zelboraf and seeing how you do?  Maybe you're free of melanoma?
