I am a two-time stage IV melanoma survivor. Originally diagnosed with stage III at 27 years old, I was diagnosed with stage IV melanoma of the lungs at 29. I received treatment at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and remained cancer free for 14 months. My last recurrence was in February 2011 and I am cancer free as of today."I am a two-time stage IV melanoma survivor."
I enjoy life every day and live it to the fullest! This horrible disease has turned my life upside down, but has taught me to do what makes me happiest. Life is for living!
