Looking for anyone diagnosed with Merkel Cell Carcinoma, who can discuss their stage of cancer and experiences.

Just wanted to tell you to hang on, someone will be here soon to help.  These rare boards sometimes run slow because, well, y'all are rare!  I have another kind of "rare" cancer that seems not to be as rare as they said.  Just letting you know someone cares and wishes you the best!  Best, Debrajo  Laughing

Hi, I see this post is about 8 months old but just became a member today. I was diagnosed with stage 3 Merkel Cell on 11/3/14. To date I have received 6 cycles of Chemo and radiation treatments and will be going for new scans at the end of the month. Looking foward to a response for further discussuion.

My dad was diagnosed with Merkel Cell Carcinoma a few days ago.  He is 92.  He has an appointment with a dermatologist next week.  What should I expect?
