    Dear Melanoma (NOT!),

    Well, 2010 has come and gone and only partially because of you, mel, it was without a doubt the worst year of my life. We had quite a fight. You did your best, even returning after I thought I had kicked your a**.  

    But…..I'M STILL HERE!  And I expect to be here this same time next year, thanks to my God, my good doctors, and my treatment plan.

    Dear Melanoma (NOT!),

    Well, 2010 has come and gone and only partially because of you, mel, it was without a doubt the worst year of my life. We had quite a fight. You did your best, even returning after I thought I had kicked your a**.  

    But…..I'M STILL HERE!  And I expect to be here this same time next year, thanks to my God, my good doctors, and my treatment plan.

    But will you still be here next year, mel?  Maybe not, maybe they will find a cure in 2011. Maybe 2011 is your final year, mel. Maybe. You BETTER be scared, mel, cuz nobody likes you mel, nobody is praying for you, nobody is working and fighting to find a way to keep YOU alive.

    Maybe you better run home crying to your mama, mel, maybe you better go home and get your affairs in order, mel !

    So here we go again, just you and me, mel. Ready?  CUZ I AM. Round One of 2011: Biochemo starts next Thursday. Let's see how you like it, mel.  I know I'm gonna LOVE it. Can't wait! Let's go.

    Most sincerely,

    Nicki, stage 3b
