My friend has been diagnosed with Melinoma Cancer. We're not close enough that he gives me all the details of his situatioin, and I feel like an intruder by involving myself. I just hope that he's getting the best care that he can get and I'd like to find some way to help. This has really effected me because I can't even imagine what he must be going through. I tell everyone to positive and that he may be able to deal with this thing for a good long time. I could really use some encouragement here - a success story or something. He had a mole removed from his neck early this year. It was a malignant melinoma and later tests revealed that it had spread. They removed lymph nodes and tissue and I guess it was further along than the doctors supected. I'm hearing its stage IV, cell activity in the bones and now his back is really hurting. He's a tough guy, young, we can help him through this - right?
