My wife and I are participating in the Melanoma Walk 2011. We'd love for you to join us!

Join Team Mela-no-mas!

Here's Martha's story:

I was diagnosed with Stage 3b Melanoma in September of 2009. I have been through 4 surgeries, a year of interferon therapy (an immune system treatment with side effects similar to bad flu) and am now participating in a clinical trial. I have had two recurrences of Melanoma which showed up as tumors in my back. I am currently cancer free, but there is no guarantee I will stay that way. I am walking for myself, and my husband’s cousin, Clint Smith, who lost his battle with Melanoma in 2008. I also walk for my children, who now have melanoma in their medical histories on both sides of the family.
