MPIP: Melanoma Patients Information Page

Register Login Help

The MPIP is the oldest and largest community of people affected by melanoma hosted through the Melanoma Research Foundation. It is designed to provide support and information to caregivers, patients, family and friends. Once you have been touched by melanoma—either as a patient or as a family member or friend of a patient—you become part of a community. It is not a community anyone joins willingly. But if you must be part of this group, you will find no better place to find the tools you need in your journey with this cancer, and the friends who can make that journey more bearable.

The information on the bulletin board is open and accessible to everyone. To add a new topic or to post a reply, you must be a registered user. Please note that you will be able to post both topics and replies anonymously even though you are logged in. All posts must abide by MRF posting policies.

I noticed someone below asked how to start a new topic so I thought I'd test that out. After I logged in I looked on the right, I saw I had the option of starting a new topic with my name or anonymously. For the record I'm not 3 years old but for now I'm using a VERY old shot of me as a young girl for my profile. I tried changing it to a cropped one that didn't cut my head off but once I saved my profile shot it didn't seem to let me change it so for now you might want to be careful what you upload.

I have been contacted by a national reporter interested in speaking with a couple of patients who are currently enrolled in the Phase III study of the BRAF inhibiter in development from Roche/Plexxikon.  This reporter wants to hear a patient's perspective on the trial.  This is a great opportunity to have unfiltered patient input into the clinical trial process.

If you are please send me an e-mail and I will forward it along to the reporter.

Thanks

Guess I didn't get the memo about ALL the posts being moved to the archive.  Ouch.  Here's hoping everybody catches on pretty quick.

As you may have noticed, today we have upgraded the bulletin board with a new look and additional functions.  Unfortunately, we were not able to move over the posts from the previous bulletin board system to the new bulletin board.  As such, all posts from the older bulletin board have been archived and will remain on the site for reference purposes.

To view old bulletin board posts, visit the archived bulletin board.  Once you arrive at the archived bulletin board, click on the tab titled “Archive,” and you will be able to view all posts based on the month they were created.  While you will not be able to respond to these posts, you can view the responses that have already been left. 

If you would like to continue the conversation, please post your topic to the new bulletin board.  Please note, as part of the bulletin board’s updates, you will no longer be able to post a comment without first logging-in.  While you can still post anonymously, you will have to be logged-in and then select the option to post anonymously.  The change is due to issues with inappropriate posts, and by requiring participants to log-in before postings we can address this problem.  If you do not have an account with melanoma.org, please register.

If you have any issues or concerns, please feel free to contact the Melanoma Research Foundation.
