This question was posted on the CURE OM Facebook page today, and I thought it was worth reposting here.
Even though they share the name melanoma, there are many differences between ocular melanoma and cutaneous melanoma. How do you educate others about the differences?
One great way is to direct them to the CURE OM web page where these differences are highlighted: http://www.melanoma.org/learn-more/types-of-melanoma/cure-ocular-melanoma/what-is-ocular-melanoma
The battle was lost, but the war must go on until a cure is found.
