Melanoma Update

Stacy & Zak at Jump Creek (Fall 2008)

Finally after a month of knowing I have Melanoma, we now know what the next step is. I have stage 3 Melanoma, meaning it has moved from a mole to a lymph node. Luckily it is localized and has not spread to other places or organs. I had a PET/CT scan and brain MRI at St. Luke's this morning. Then Dr. Law called me this afternoon to tell me it is localized and the next step is to have it all surgically removed. Then I'll be put on interferon drug therapy for a year. Which doesn't sound like it'll be very fun but could be much worse!!! So now just waiting to find out when my surgery will be. Thank you everyone for all your prayers and support!
