It's that time again.... happy and blessed to say ...ALL's CLEAR. Been a long journey since 2006, but thrilled to remain NED and Healthy!
The important take away is....always have hope. Never give up. I can still picture my Medical Oncologist at Johns Hopkins telling me I had '6-9 months, Stage 4 prognosis usually under a year'..and all he offered me was a vaccine trial. I have exceeded my 'expiration date' by 34 months and remain NED.
Always be your own ADVOCATE. Find alternatives, go for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th opinion. Don't stop until YOU are ready to stop. Be the Captain of your medical team. Find a Melanoma Specialist to Co-Captian and the rest of your support team will fall in place.
Wishing you all good health and happiness...
