I just want to share some good news on this discussion board.
My wife had melanoma in the form of a mole on her forehead April 1991. The mole was excised and lymphs nodes in area removed. She was pronounced cancer free and continued annual checkups through 2009. She was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma, 3 tumors on her esopahgus and lungs June 2009. She underwent four treatments with interleuken 2 (IL2)from August thru November 2009. PET and CT scans results March 2010 revealed the tumors were gone and she was in remission. She has been going for regular CT scans. The frequency was every 4 months in 2011. Tuesday December 20 her CT scan still revealed she is CANCER FREE. Her oncologist now only wants her to have CT scans every 6 months. So praise God she has reached another milestone.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, just say, stage 4 is a number I can beat with first and foremost the help of God, prayers of family and friends and a positive attitude.
