My cousin, who is like a brother to me has stage 3 melanoma, recently diagnosis, they found out in Jan, 2012. He will start undergoing interferon treatments on March 12. He will have them Monday thru Friday for a month, thru IV. After that he will have injections 3 times a week for the next year. He still has a PET scan due to lymph nodes that showed possible melanoma. He has undergone 2 surgeries to remove lymph nodes. The last surgery on his neck they removed 47 nodes and found no sign of melanoma. MRI's and previous PET scan have showed not spreading except for the questionable area. He has a wife who will have to work full time during this and 2 small daughters as well. I was hoping for advice from someone who has been thru the treatment, I would love to help him with comforts, as well as his family. We have prepared freezer meals for them. If there is anything that helps during treatment, food that is easy to eat, etc. I would love ideas. I am so worried and would do anything for his family.
