I am 30 years old and was diagnosed with melanoma in June 2010. Over the summer, I had a WLE and SNB. One of the lymph nodes had microscopic melanoma in it. I then had a lymph node dissection of my left groin in August. Luckily, those lymph nodes were clean. I am stage 3a. In September and October, I went through the induction phase of Interferon and now am in the maintainence phase. I am lucky to not have many side effects and am working full time.
This forum is great for all us melanoma survivors to connect but lately I feel I'm seeing a lot of people who have succombed to this awful disease. Right now I'm at the point where I could use a little inspiration - I want to hear stories of people who are kicking this disease's ass! I know that there is a chance this could come back but I need to hear from those of you who's has not come back . I need to know that that is a possibility for me....for us.
