    I just wanted to share that after a year of battling melanoma my dad has gone to be with the Lord.  Things went down hill quickly after not responding to IL-2, and braf and then b-raf for brain mets. We were hoping to give ipi a try but there just wasn't time. He fought to the very end and so badly wanted to beat this horrible disease.  His father and sister also battled melanoma and passed away.

    I wanted to say thank you for this forum and the knowledge and information you all share.  I admire all those that are fighting melanoma and hope and pray that a cure can be found.  Continue to fight and never lose hope.

    My dad will be missed tremendously by many but we know that melanoma know longer has a hold of him.  

    Here is my blog where I pay a little tribute to him if you're interested:

      Hi Adrienne,

      My heart goes out to you and your family. I read your tribute to your Dad and he sounds like an incredible warrior who left an amazing example in many ways.  May you see him in your children and know he's still with you.

      Lord, in Your mercy, you grieve with Adrienne and her family even as you have welcomed her Dad home. Comfort, strengthen and bring your peace in the pain. And thank you, God, for giving him to Adrienne, even if only for a while. Amen.

      Grace and much peace to your spirit,

      Carol

        Hi,

        So sorry to hear about your dad passing away, what a loss for you and your family. And to hear that his father and sister also died from melanoma…how horrible this disease is! It is hard to watch someone not get better and die from a cancer, we all think that medical care should have advanced by now to conquer all cancers, but sadly this is not the case.

        Bask in the warmth from your memories of your father, and be with family and friends. Gotta take care of yourself too, so hopefully these things are all happening. Thanks so much for letting us all know. We appreciate it, and are so sorry for your loss.
