      Hello everyone, 

      I have not been very active on this board the past several months and truly hope there is more positive than negative news flowing through the postings.  All the people who share here are heroes in my mind and helped me and my family through the darkest of times.  I'll be forever grateful.  

      I wanted to share my most recent positive news – although a little old now.  My last trip to NIH in follow-up to my ACT/TIL treatment in May 2012 was the first week of August.  After the usual labs and scans the doctors, again, shared that my melanoma was not seen and I remain with no evidence of disease.  

      Those words, have made life move forward again  for us – cautiously forward.  

      All the very best to everyone out there dealing with this terrible disease and a special thank you to everyone who is enrolled in a clinical trial – it is because of us that there will, one day, be a solution to melanoma.  

      Troy
