    Hello, Ive been visiting this site for almost a decade since I was diagnosed in 2001. I never fail to be amazed by the level of support you provide for each other.I am stage IIIb and have now been NED for seven years. I consider myself to be very lucky indeed and in some ways the last ten years have been the best of my life. I took early retirement when I was diagnosed, I have a wonderful wife, five great kids and six grandchildren (born since my diagnosis).

    Hello, Ive been visiting this site for almost a decade since I was diagnosed in 2001. I never fail to be amazed by the level of support you provide for each other.I am stage IIIb and have now been NED for seven years. I consider myself to be very lucky indeed and in some ways the last ten years have been the best of my life. I took early retirement when I was diagnosed, I have a wonderful wife, five great kids and six grandchildren (born since my diagnosis). However I am always aware that the cloud of melanoma does not go away and that many people have not been as lucky as I have been up to now.I am taking part in a charity walk to raise money for The Royal Marsden Hospital, where I have recieved outstanding care. If anyone would like to help please go to http://www.justgiving.com/mike-snelle Thankyou!
