My Melanoma Mindys

Black for Melanoma Ribbon

These are the blogs of my two favorite Mindys…

They are in the midst of a battle with Stage IV Melanoma.  One as a patient, one as a wife. If you know me, you know that I am not religious.  They make me pray.  Please send them your prayers.

Mindy Stanley – Melanoma Wife

Mindy Lanoux – Melanoma Warrior

Featured in the NY Times article on MD Anderson Cancer Center.

Keep fighting.  Love to both of you…
