    I just wanted to thank you all. My aunt found this forum and linked it to me. I have been trying to read as many posts as possible (with a 2.5 year old and 13 week old). My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 malignant melanoma  a few weeks ago (July 28 at 3pm to be exact)…who could ever forget an appointment like that.

    I have learned so much from all of your posts and have been able to further investigate different therapies available to my mom. Most importantly I have realized that we are not alone in this horrible nightmare. There are good people all over the world fighting this disease.

     

    I just wanted to thank you for giving me strength for my mom and my family. Keep fighting, there are so many treatments coming out for this disease and I am sure a cure is on its way!

      Tricia,

      I'm glad you found this site and have found it comforting as my husband and I have done also. News of diagnose turns a person's world upside down and sometimes the "outside world" has no understanding how dangerous melanoma really is. We ourselves certainly are being educated in a hard fast way right now and have found this group to be a wonderful site for support. My husband was just diagnosed over Father's Day this year – he is stage 3. We have 3 daughters and they sound about your age.

      Never feel you are alone,

      lovingwifedeb,
