A blog about us…and journey with Melanoma

3.5 Years and All Clear

Just updating the blog – Mike passed his yearly scan with flying colors!  It has been over 3 years now since his diagnosis. He is all clear and we pray that his luck will continue.  YAY!!  His doctor told him that the survival stats are very good after the 2 year mark but in the same breath told him he must be vigilant.   Our doc told Mike that he recently had a patient that was all clear for 16 years and just had a recurrence near his primary.   Melanoma is a sneaky bastard.  We will try and enjoy each moment and not let that fear control us.  Take care everyone.
