What a year it has been for Melanoma. FDA approves first new drug for melanoma in over 20 years and I have a reoccurance, get bumped to stage 4 and have the pleasure to enjoy IL-2. It has not been easy, but we are making progress with my personal battle and the overall battle against melanoma. Due to events like our kickass fundraiser MelaNoMo'! we can help contribute to beat this cancer. We have experienced first-hand the frustration and distress of battling a disease that severly lacks funding, public awareness, available treatments, and treatment facilities.
This year we had our most succesfull fundraiser to date! We have created a movement to make BLACK the new PINK. People are going to the dermatologist more often, make a conscious effort to not get their "burn on", and know the warning signs of what to look for to detect the early stages. With that being said there is still a long ways to go to create the funding and awareness that is needed to find a cure for this deadly disease.
December 6, 2011 was a monumental moment for MelaNoMo'! because on this date I had No Mo' MelaNoMo'!. My PET scans came back clear and showed no evidence of disease (NED)! I can't thank everyone enough for fighting along with me this past year, your constant thoughts and prayers lifted our spirits and helped us beat stage IV melanoma.
