MELANOMA INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION
September 18, 2012

MIF has really impacted my life. My father is suffering from Malignant Melanoma. This is rare disease in India (where we live) and even reputed oncologists are unaware of the treatment. After searching for Melanoma on Google, I found MIF. MIF has helped me throughout the course of treatment. Firstly, my doctors were adamant on just WBRT(whole brain radio therapy) But I was always skeptical about it. I started discussing the issue and asked MIF's help. I got more pertinent answers from MIF rather than from doctors. Armed with the advanced knowledge from MIF, I discussed the issue again with my doctors who then referred us to another hospital having advanced machine. After that, I started discussing my father's case with MIF regularly. They guided me throughout the treatment. From NRAS mutation test to C-KIT, each and every crucial step was discussed. Moreover, I benefited immensely by the experiences shared by other senior members. It is indispensable for people who do not have access to advanced medical services in the field of Melanoma. Apart from creating awareness about Melanoma treatment, MIF provides a lot of emotional support. It provides a vent to all the frustration through which Melanoma Caregiver goes through. I had some ethical issues which were weighing a lot on my mind. I discussed it with MIF and fortunately, I found a senior member who went through the exact same situation. I wont mince my words but it literally helped me decide the most appropriate and peaceful way in which my father will die. I could not expect more.
