Live 4 today. Thank God for all he has done for us. Looking forward to enjoying tomorrow.

What a great article. Gives so much hope to all of us in this melanoma journey.

One of my dear, dear friends penned this piece. He has been through all he notes and more - but is still ticking and doing amazing things in his life!! Thanks for re-sharing it here!! - celeste

Awesome story! Wishing him to remain NED for several more decades! And for all we know, this could be possible. Because with immunotherapy, we still do not know how long the responses last in those who do respond. Again, I hope that we do not find out anytime soon...

Terrific article! Read it a while back and it gave me a lot of hope and inspiration. Wish we could have survivor dinners. I can just imagine the conversations we would all have! Thank you for sharing.
