You might have heard about melanoma before, but now it’s personal for you – as someone who has been diagnosed with advanced melanoma or knows a friend or family member who has been diagnosed. This website is intended to provide information and resources for you to get personal with advanced melanoma – to learn about it and to be inspired and helped by others who have already been on the journey.
Melanoma is a personal journey, different for every patient and every friend or family member. It’s a personal disease, with different causes, symptoms, courses of progression, treatments and prognosis. It’s useful to know about the disease as you make your own personal journey or support someone you love with advanced melanoma.
We can always learn from others who have already travelled a road we are on. Here are some stories of their experiences, challenges and hopes.
You & Your Physician
