My husband, John, was diagnosed with skin cancer, melanoma, 6 years ago. The mole that contained the melanoma was removed and all was good. Just under 4 years later the cancer had spread and John had surgery to remove 11 lymph nodes under his arm, thankfully only one 1 node contained melanoma. He then had targeted drug therapy for 1 year and all scans were clear during this time. Then 4 months later a scan showed the cancer had travelled to a new part of John's body. It showed 3 brain tumours. We were devastated! He had stereotactic radiotherapy and 1 dose of Immunotherapy. The Immunotherapy messed with John's liver so that put a stop to that treatment. Scans at Christmas showed the 3 brain tumours had shrunk and there was no new cancer anywhere else. We were so delighted! John goes for his next set of scans in April. Cancer research plays such a big part in finding treatment to fight the different types of cancer and different people's situations whether it's a 1st time diagnosis or, like John, 3rd diagnosis. Please support Cancer Research. Thank you!
