I got the news this evening that the black lesion on my tonsil is melanoma. I'm not sure what this means for the Clinical Trial I am on but I will be traveling there Monday. It is time for a scan and another treatment. I expect we will make a decision based on what the scan shows. The beast just keeps rearing it's ugly head but I am determined to keep fighting back!

Thank you for your kindness and concern. It is nice to have the support of those who have been down the same road. I am also thankful to have two great teams of Melanoma specialists working with me to plan the next steps. Will keep in touch.
