I expect we will see some exciting advances this year in melanoma treatment. And it is about time! We spent 40 years with little to be optimistic about. I really want to congratulate the researchers for becoming excited about melanoma and keeping at it! But you know we wouldn’t know anything if it were not for YOU, the patients and caregivers who are on the front line, enrolling in clinical trials and giving your feedback about these new therapies. You are the bravest and most giving people I know. I wish you all a HEALTHY New Year!
I can only support Sue’s words. We are lucky both for having these advances – Since my husband was diagnoiosed – it is the third time we were lucky to hear that the medication he needed – has just been approved shortly before, and that if it was few years before – we could do nothing. We are also lucky to have this website and Catherine – so help and support in everything
In addition to the advances, I am also thankful for you, Catherine. You have been a great source of information, counselor for advice, and friend. Our collective journeys with melanoma would be very different without you.
Thank you so much for everything and may 2015 bring you happiness.
