    Hi everyone,

    There is an article on Good Housekeeping about a woman diagnosed with stage 3 and then stage 4 melanoma and her journey with treatments.

    People may find it interesting; it seems to have covered some of the newer treatments…Ipi, PLX4032. She was treated was tremilimumab….guess I am not sure what that is…..but I will research that.

    Enjoy!

    Vermont_Donna, stage 3a

    currently stable (NED) after 4 infusions of Ipi, round two to start May 11

        Didn't find the article, either. But the woman who was interviewed for the article, seems to be a blogger: http://thestilettogang.blogspot.com/2011/03/beauty-is-in-eye-ofphotoshop.html
