I was diagnosed in 2004 - stage 2b. Standard of care was different 8 years ago. Sometimes I wonder if I might of missed out on the advances of today. While I have no evidence of disease, the fear never really goes away. Each skin check comes with concern and thoughts around what might be found or worse yet, missed.
My melanoma was the inspiration behind the creation of treatmentdiaries.com. Now I help others on a journey with any illness and it is truly empowhering to make others feel better through connections and sharing than I ever imagined. My cancer journey has inspired me to be well.
I'm glad Empowher.com found me. Looking forward to sharing with you all and we welcome you to start a diary with us too! Your diary...Shared healing!
