A blog about us

10 years later…

It has been 10 years since Mike was diagnosed with Stage 3 melanoma. We are happy to share that he remains healthy and without a recurrence. Sadly I lost my mother to cancer last month. I am going to dedicate a page to her soon when I can bring myself to do it. XO Emily

    HI Emily,
    I am so happy to hear Mike is still doing well. I hit my 13 year mark from being diagnosed in July. 10 yrs with NED in August.
    I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I lost my brother to pancreatic cancer this past March. It’s a daily struggle. He was only 57. My heart goes out to you. Take care!

        Yes its extremely hard. My husband recently retired and we moved back to the area where my family lives. My brother and I were looking forward to that day so much. Unfortunately he passed away 3 months before we were able to move back. My mom will be 87 next month. She is struggling so bad. My sister was killed in a car accident when she was only 27. Now she lost my brother. No one expects their child do die before them. I am so grateful we are back for her. The dimentia has gotten so much worse since my brother passed.
        Hope your family is doing well other than your recent loss.
