Martha and I had the pleasure of participating in a Melanoma Town Hall meeting in Phoenix a couple months ago. Just before the meeting started, Martha sat down with the host, Andrew Schorr, to tell her story and give hopeful advice for other cancer patients out there. I’m terribly biased, of course, but I think she did an amazing job!
Martha Bishop, melanoma survivor and patient advocate, pushed to have a bump removed after her daughter pointed it out. Even after her doctor dismissed it, she persisted. Days later, she received a phone call with a diagnosis of a malignant tumor.
