Dear Earl,

I see you have posted a request for help under the Merkel Cell site - do you have this cancer??? I am a 3+ year survivor and when intially diagnosed I was a stage III. My name is Audi and I am now 57.....please, respond since I am very interested in this cancer....and perhaps I can be of some help.

Best wishes,
Audi

Hi, I was diagnosed with Merkel in November of 2007. It was found at he top of my head, The Mayo surgeon removed it and grafted skin from my breast. Then I had six weeks of radiation and it healed very slowly, almost a year! I go back every 6 months now for check up and so far doing very well. Where was you cancer located and how often is your check ups? I am 85 years young and walk briskly most every morning. Thanks for replying at my request. Earl
