Every 3 months I go to the dermatologist becuase my younger sister is in remission after two bouts with melanoma. I always get nervous waiting to see if the doctor has found another "something" on my skin but feel so lucky because I now know about full body skin exams and staying out of the sun. Too many people are either ignorant to this type of skin cancer which can be treated if caught early but if not it can often prove fatal. While it is not the most common of the skin cancers, it causes the most deaths. Patients should not have to demonstrate how one treament doesn't work and die before they can get on the new drug trial. We need to raise money for education since the best news about melanoma is that many cases of skin cancer can be prevented by taking certain precautions. Money needs to be raised so that all patients have access to the right medicine and treatment so that more young children don't lose their fathers to this terrible disease, wives lose husbands or brothers lose a brother.
