Please send good vibes my way
In may 2009 when i was 36 weeks pregnant I was diagnosed with melanoma. I had to wait until my son was to to find out had bad it was. Ds was born July 5th 2009 and I had my first surgery 12 days later. I found out that it has spread to a lymph node in my neck. So in sept 2009 I went in for a more invasive surgery to remove all those lymph nodes. Luckily everything came back clear, but since I was stage 3 that put me in the 50/50 chance bracket of it coming back.

Since that last surgery I have had 2 scans. This Thursday is my 3rd. I'm uninsured so I'm freaking out about how much it's going to cost, but most of all I just want to hear the words "no cancer"

Thanks mama!

Re: Please send good vibes my way
As someone who is fighting Stage IV melanoma right now I wish nothing more than for you to get the words, Cancer FREE!!! Or as we like to say NED! (no evidence of disease)

(I also hope your scans aren't too expensive for you to pay for, I have insurance but am still shocked when I get those explanation of benefits pages from my insurance that explain what was charged. Yikes!)

Also if you so desire there is a really good support board for melanoma
A ton of knowledgable people in all stages of disease.

Mellysue - you'll be in my prayers too! I will check out that board, thanks for the link. I've been doing ok with dealing except lately my anxiety has been through the roof and I haven't been sleeping well (if at all), so I can use all the support I can get.

Thank you for the prayers from both of you :)
