Hello Everyone. My husband Jay was diagnosed with melanomia last May 28 2013. We will always remember the date it was our 19 wedding anniversary . The surge said he got all the cancer so we didn't see an oncologist . In July he had to have his aortic valve replaced. Afterwards the shortness of breath didn't get better. Long story short, he has stage 4 melanomia. It's in his lungs and liver. He's had a round of chemo . They are now going to try to get him on the Tafinlar drug. We're going to the doctor tomorrow to see if he can take it.
That's how I found this group, researching the drug. He is 54 will be 55 next month and this has been a nightmare year for us. He's on his disability and that's a blessing. He's never been sick he's one of those folks that is never ever sick. This cancer has forever changed how we look at life. I'm so very glad I found all of you . I found a post of a lady who husband had stage 4 and she was talking about this drug. I can't recall her name but she's the reason I'm on here. It was something wife of . I hope she's still on here. Her post was last year and she talked about the things I'm worried about also.
I'm sorry for being so long winded . Thank God for this group. Thank you one and all .Juanita , wife of Jay .
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not seen.
