      Sometimes, one hesitates to post the great news when others are deep in battle.  My reason for posting is to give others hope that is so essential in battling melanoma.

      I was at Moffitt today to get the results of the CT of the neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and the MRI of the brain that I had last week.  There is no evidence of melanoma!  I had advanced to Stage IV in 2005 with liver metastasis.  I had a major recurrence in 2008 with a peri-pancreatic tumor and a sub q.  I've not had a recurrence since that time.  I think most of my success has been because of my very aggressive surgeon but who knows?  So many factors probably play into it.

      I wish everyone could be as fortunate as I have been.  I thank everyone on this Board for their support and friendship over the years.  There are times that I would have felt so alone without the people on this Board.

                      Kathie,

                      When I began my journey, entered the MPIP world in March 2005 with Stage III melanoma, you are one of the stand-out people I recall.   I was in awe over your journey and at the same time frightened for you, awed at your participation on the board with all that you were having happen to you.   I became inspired and so, so happy, relieved, impressed and HOPEFUL with your successes.    And you continue to be a constant hope here for so many others.   You are part of the old gang, the original people I remember participating in "bashes"    I still look up to all of you with such awe and respect.     You are part of the foundation of my confidence in knowledge and experience with melanoma.    I would look at the Melasuckanoma site and familiarize myself with faces and names, wishing I could have participated in the bashes.

                      I celebrate this day with you, and pray for continued NED days.    Happy Thanksgiving.   How nice it is to have this behind you for the holidays.

How dreary the board would be if it were just a continual list of bad reports? We need your great news, and the good news stories of all the other warriors. It's what keeps the rest of us going, and gives us hope!  Anyway, I am absolutely thrilled with your report, and I hope it continues for many years to come.

LOL!!), and then back to Montreal for my 12-week scan on Dec 8, and fly home to Newfoundland that night.

I, too, have been stage IV NED for almost 3 years.  I post on here rarely anymore, but saw your post and can remember your posts over the 5 years I have been on here. I wonder why I have had a durable response to my Temodar treatment of my lung met…I don't know and feel so fortunate. Thanks for giving me hope that treating more than one recurrence at stage IV can be sucessful.
