My 31 year old son was recently diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer. 2 operations later and next a 1 year treatment of interferon with possible severe side effects. Started on his foot of all places. This disease can be deadly. STOP getting tans all summer, your life might depend on it.

I have had three melanomas on the sole of my left foot. First was in 1994 when I was 36, the second in 1998 and a third in 2005. I had all removed with radical surgery and lymph node removal. So far all good. Never lose hope, never give up.....and remember to say thank you for every day you are blessed with. I wish your son all the very best with his treatment and I hope my story inspires shows him that life does go on.

Mr. Carter, my prayers are with you and your son and your entire family. I have been a 'survivor' of family members with cancer, my husband, 2 of my uncles, my grandmother. My husband was diagnosed with a stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma, which is actually the #1 '''type''' of skin cancer. They didn't tell us (although I knew) that he only had a 5% chance of surviving for 2 years. However, it has been 14 years, so love, strength of will and prayer ALL HELP!!

It's very difficult for...

It's very difficult for people when someone they love dearly is affected by cancer or other illnesses, and often we are overlooked as to how WE are doing, so I wish you all the strength and health you will need to also get through this time. I think I almost collapsed for the 2 years I took care of my ailing husband.

I had just made a post wherein I stated that many people get melanoma on their feet and bottom of their feet, and tend to overlook it, when I saw your post! It is actually one of the most common spots for Melanoma, because we wear flipflops and sandals !

KEEP SPREADING THAT MESSAGE Mr. Carter, you very well could save lives!!

Much love and wishes.

My mother was diagnosed with melanoma. They found melanoma in her eye and she had it operated and removed and then 14 years latter it spread from the lungs to other inner parts of the body. I lost her 16 years ago, I am so thankfull to God for giving me the best mother ever. She has given me a lot and I still miss her.
mothers/fathers, daughters/sons, brothers/sisters be aware of cancer cause those who stay behind may never recover from your loss.

I use to be a sun worshipper and loved having a tan. Now since I have had both basal cell and squamos cell skin cancer removed, I have no longer been a sun bather. I check regularly and see a dermatologist every six months. ALSO to all the people who use tanning beds, they are even worse. I preach this to my 21 year old daughter ALL the time.

If people were more aware about the discovery within our bodies of a tripeptide called GLUTATHIONE. Just google skin cancer and glutathione or go to Pubmed.gov. THERE is an answer and it's in our BODIES..The cell can reproduce and recylcle it's Master Antioxidant/anitoxant....Go to Max.com and learn about the company Max International. There is an answer in our bodies.....GSH.

Thanks for this information, I will research it. I work out in the sun every day even though I wear a straw hat I still get a lot of sun exposure. I have noticed a spot on my ear which I'm afraid that it may be skin cancer. after reading this I will get it checked. Thanks for your input and web advise.
