Hi everyone. It’s December again, another anniversary and a time of reflection. It’s been 19 years since first diagnosed Stage 3b melanoma and multiple melanomas thereafter. I am so grateful that there was a group like this to turn to through the good and the bad times over all those years, taking care of your mental health as well as physical health is half the battle. MPIP was the first forum I joined and I will never forget friends I made and Rest In Peace to the ones lost. For those newly diagnosed, there are long term survivors out there, they just don’t necessarily post as they are getting on with life so keep strong. I wish you all a merry Xmas and hopefully many more.
