Review for Melanoma International Foundation, Glenmoore, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I was diagnosed a year ago, I was told I had an early melanoma and was going to be fine. I always thought Melanoma had one outcome. No one gave me the background information I needed. I paniced after surfing the web. UNTIL I found MIF. They helped me put it in perspective and understand all the ins and outs of pathology reports, future risk and even what follow up I should receive. Most importantly, the forum helped me feel less alone when everyone else in my life kept saying "it's just skin cancer". It is so reassuring to know that my feelings were a normal part of the process and there are others out there going through the same thing. I stick around now to help reassure newly diagnosed patients since I was in their shoes and know how scary those first few weeeks can be. Knowledge is power and peace of mind, and Catherine and her staff provide that and much more!
