Rachel, you are asking a very important question here. You have posted this question on the "Off Topic" bulletin board which does not get much activity.  You need to post your question again on the main melanoma board. There are a lot of people there who can help you.

Go to: http://www.melanoma.org/community/mpip-melanoma-patients-information-page
