As a stage 4 melanoma patient, interacting with other patients and caregivers to share information about treatments and research options is essential. The Melanoma International Foundation provides this much-needed experience through its dedicated patient and caregiver forums, allowing people everywhere to connect with each other and share knowledge, experience, and hope. There are not a lot of treatment options for us, and survival statistics are poor. It is easy to lose hope. Being able to easily connect with others going through the same experience has been a key component of my emotional stability during this journey. Without the advice and support of others, I would be lost and alone. The Melanoma International Foundation is a wonderful, caring, supportive organization. I don't know what I would do without it. It deserves every recognition possible.
