I have beend diagnosed with metastatic melanoma four separate times. My most recent diagnosis this past March left me with little to zero options outside of surgery. I was desperate for help and kept turning for more answers. I was on-line at work one day and searched for Melanoma and came in contact with the Melanoma Internation Foundation. I called the number and spoke with the most knowledgable staff peron. She discussed clinical trials and she was very familiar with the doctors in Colorado and the other treatments I had endured up to that point. I was so thankful to have her in my corner. She knew what I was going through and had been through already. She was positive, encouraging and most of all, full of valuable information.

I was diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma last June in 2010. MIF was great in guiding me through the steps towards the right treatment and consultation with Doctors.

They also helped me financially with a small grant which help me pay for one of my trips to see my Oncologist.

MIF is
a great source for information, support and guidance through the whole process.

I am a stage 4 melanoma patient who has lived for each update that I receive from this group. I have met several people here that I have never met but are a strong part of my team to beat this cancer. I have had the pleasure of meeting one that moved from ND and now lives in Florida. She has become as close to me as any sister I could ever have. All because of this site.

The Melanoma Internation Foundation supported my family by helping me understand my husbands diagnosis. Catherine was so informative along with everyone that chimed in with answers to my questions. If it wasn't for MIF I would not have know what to expect or even the right questions to ask. The website is a God Send.

MIF is the site of choice for people diagnosed with melanoma and for their loved ones. The information is up to date,accurate and provides a balance of individual experiences with information on the latest research/treatments. It is here that I come for information that our oncologist cannot give us (I think he is concerned that every case is unique and his answers would only be speculative) and it is here that I am heartened and saddened by peoples experiences but I am constantly amazed at the resiliency of cancer sufferers. MIF is a community of care and personal expertise. It is our lifeline to discuss this terrible disease with people who share it, treat it, have been through it and who can intimately relate to the life changing course of this diagnosis.

I would make no changes except perhaps to increase the amount of text you can use in the forum section of the website.
