Off-Topic Forum

The MPIP Off-Topic Forum is a community bulletin board that provides the melanoma community with a safe space to share experiences and to give and find support from others who can relate to having or caring for someone with a melanoma diagnosis. Please note: if you have an urgent question about melanoma to ask the community, visit the main MPIP Forum.

MPIP is the oldest and largest community of people affected by melanoma hosted through the Melanoma Research Foundation. It is designed to provide support and information to caregivers, patients, family and friends. Once you have been touched by melanoma—either as a patient or as a family member or friend of a patient—you become part of a community. It is not a community anyone joins willingly. But if you must be part of this group, you will find no better place to find the tools you need in your journey with this cancer, and the friends who can make that journey more bearable.

The information on the bulletin board is open and accessible to everyone. To add a new topic or to post a reply, you must be a registered user. Please note that you will be able to post both topics and replies anonymously even though you are logged in. All posts must abide by MRF posting policies.

I've had this stupid program on my Windows for a couple days and I cant find away to remove it. I Google how this happen on my computer and some say "Normally, Dragon Branch is mainly distributed through torrents, peer to peer file sharing, freeware downloads, malignant websites and so on." (Quoted from this) So, I look at recently downloaded applications on my computer and the same day this appeared after that program is installed.  Is there any ideas to remove this sturborn?

I've been going crazy trying to figure out how to add a photo and update my profile info. From what I've been able to find on the site, it just says to click on my name in the top right corner, but my name is not clickable?

Anyone know???

Jackie, Dan's beloved wife, called a bit ago to let me know Dan passed away unexpectedly on Oct. 26th.  She had gone bike-riding with a friend, and when she returned home, she found Dan on the floor.  He apparently died from a heart attack.  She is devastated, as you can imagine.  Please keep Jackie, their daughter Danielle, and their two grandchildren, Emerson and Natalie in your heart and prayers.  Dan tried to come across as a bad-ass here, but in real life he was just a big ol' tenderhearted teddy bear.  He never got over losing his son, Nate, to melanoma.

Jackie is trying to be strong, and relying on her faith in God to get her through Dan's passing.  She said she doesn't think she can take any more phone calls and having to explain things, and she asked me to share this news here.  If you'd like to send a card, her address is:


Jackie Thompson

46828 Woodfield Dr.

Mattawan, Michigan  49071


Memorials can be made, in Nate's name, to the MRF.

Fly high, sweet DT.. I will love and miss you forever.





Life is NOT a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving in an attractive & well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand, strawberries in the other, body totally used up & worn out, & screaming WOOHOOO, WHAT A RIDE!!

Last Thursday my father was taking to the ER for an ALOC (altered level of consciousness) a CT scan was done of his head and a tumor was found on his brain. The tumor was removed last Friday and was determined to be a metastatic melanoma tumor (stage IV). He came home from the hospital yesterday  6 days after brain surgery, and will be undergoing the cyberknife within the next 4 weeks. My mother just found out that his health insurance from his employer only covers $25,000.00 per year for medical care.My family is floored, how can an insurance policy be so minimal?

 My question is, are there any sources or foundations or organizations that help with cancer treatments? We live in California and at this point fear that the hospital will not do the cyberknife surgery.

My 2 years old LG Optimus L7 used to run out of battery half day and only lasted one hour of screen time, then I invest in the extended battery for it. I think with the new battery it'll last all day even actively played games throughout the day, or use it as a wifi hotspot. I love my L7 again thank's to the new battery off MPJ. It lasts two days when the phone is at normal usage. If you have a problem like I have had with the stock battery just tried a new battery.

It's been years since I've been around. Not even sure if there would be anyone who'd remember me. For anyone who might remember. Just a note to say I'm still kicking. And will always be grateful for the late night darkside chats and wicked humour that helped me through an incredibly tough time.
