      In the interest of giving some hope to others, just want to let everyone know that today I am celebrating my 8th year of being NED. I won't bore you with all the details as you can check my profile if you want more information. Melanoma certainly left its mark on me but I am still winning. Believe in miracles…I am one!

                      My daughter, 24, is stage IIb.  After surgery and biochemotherapy she remains NED since 1/31/13.  Thank you for posting your story.  It gives this mother hope for her daughters future.

                                        Good for her…sounds like she is a fighter! From one mother to another, it is really tough and I assume melanoma must scare you all the time. As for myself, I am no longer afraid, but cannot say the same for my family. They are scared every single day. Have always thought it must be harder on the family than it is on the patient. Let’s keep hope alive…sometimes that has to be enough!

                                        Wishing your daughter a lifetime of NED!
