I was just informed by Dr J. William Harbour, ocular oncologist and researcher at Bascom Palmer in Miami (who did my biopsy), that there will be a special segment on his uveal melanoma cancer research airing this Sunday, December 2, 2012 on the TV program "CBS Sunday Morning", starting around 9 am Eastern time. Feel free to spread the word elsewhere. This will be similar to the earlier NY Times piece on the subject, but much more in depth and personal.

PS

Think of us European OM patients who will not be able to watch this, not even online repeats, as these get blocked by teh broadcasters for European viewers.

I am bumping this topic back up as a friendly reminder about the program.  Also, CURE OM will be hosting a Q & A session with Dr. Harbour.  More details to follow soon!

The battle was lost, but the war must go on until a cure is found.

a doctor on that show this morning said that there was nothing to be done about ocular melanoma.  he is wrong!  i elected to have them remove my right eye.  of course, i caught it at stage one.  it was totally encapsulated.  i was 23 and very lucky.  i don't know how old you are, or the details of your case, but don't give up.

 

losing an eye is nothing.  believe me.

I watched it and was not terribly impressed.  The whole topic was just about genetic testing, with Harbour's test cited as one of the most accurate.  Nothing new to see here.  I wouldn't expect a flood of public interest in OM.

tom - yes, i totally agree.  what got my attention was the comment about eye cancer.  that's all.  thanks for your note.
