I was diagnosed with Melanoma (skin cancer) in July of 2009. I wanted to make a place to share my thoughts, feelings and resources about melanoma and my experiences with it.
I had a mole removed, a wide-area excision, a sentinel node biopsy and several lymph nodes taken from my right leg/groin.
In February of 2012, I experienced a recurrence of my Metastatic Melanoma. After unsuccessful exploratory surgery, it was determined I would have to undergo additional therapy.
