Just found out last night that my 65 year old Father In Law has Melanoma. It spread from his skin to his lung, to a small tumor in the thyroid. It also is causing a gland in his Kidney to bleed which in turn has caused him to get numerous blood transfusions as we as extreme pain. We are very scared of this disease. Everything I've researched doesn't give us much hope. The Doctors said that they can't even operate at this point nor give him radiation. That his only option is Chemotherapy. We don't know anything about this disease nor about the effects of chemotherapy. We just want to know what his options are and how deadly is this illness really is. Any input would be greatly appreciated. We just want some hope of any kind if it's out there and what can we do. Thank you.
