I was diagnosed with an early stage melanoma three years ago. I was nervous and scared. I knew very little of melanoma and went on the internet to find out more. I needed answers to all my questions. I found MIF and started reading the forums. Although that alone was informative, I really wanted to know more about how I should view my own situation. So I posted a new topic on the forum. I received many responses, including a few from Catherine Poole. I cannot say enough how important it was to me to hear others stories and the words of encouragement regarding my own post. This is a serious disease and can mentally destroy someone, but this website gave me a much better outlook, a sense of relief, and most importantly, strength. The togetherness of the people on MIF provided the support I needed to look forward to the rest of my life and taught me to be strong in the face of adversity. The site has many wonderful things to help those that suffer from melanoma by way of forums, links, latest research, and the common bond of immediate friendship. I would not be where I am today without the information and voice of reason MIF gave me. I highly recommend this site to anyone wanting to learn more or needing that shoulder to lean on. Thank you to everyone at MIF for the dedication and support in fighting melanoma. It will never be forgotten.
