Review for MELANOMA INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION, Glenmoore, PA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I was diagnosed with melanoma in 2009 on my cheek. I had extensive surgery to remove it and was told my chances of it returning we're only 15%. It returned in a node in my neck in feb 2012, I had a full neck dissection but unfortunately it came back 6 weeks later in my neck I now have 3 tumours in my neck and it has spread to my liver. I am currently having decarbazine and radiotherapy on my neck. I am half way through my 20 treatments of radiotherapy and it is brutal..my mouth and tongue are swollen and I have blisters inside my mouth and throat making it impossible to swallow anything other than liquids. I am staying positive because that's all I can do....
