I am writing this on behalf of my sister-in-law. She is 29 and was diagnosed with stage 3 melanoma yesterday. I was wondering if there were support groups or people dealing with the same kind of cancer that she can contact or just to let her know she is not alone. Thanks!

I had melanoma on my right arm when I was 23. I am now 29 years old and I just had surgery on liver. I had to have 60% taken out cuz of melanoma. I am not sure of the stage of the melanoma. I was out of it when the doc came in to talk to me. I go see the oncologist on the 31st of May. I am a single mom of two kids. Please let her know she is not alone. There is a bunch of us. I am in Missouri. I am willing to talk to her. Jami (wildred is my user name on here)

I hope this reply isn't too late for you to see but if you go to http://www.mpip.org/ you will find a wonderfully supportive community of melanoma survivors at all stages as well as caregivers of melanoma patients. Good luck
