My primary melanoma was on my right shoulder. My family and I took it hard financially, emotionally… you name it. My family held on, let go, bonded, listened, studied and finally accepted our invisible burden. After 10 years we have grown quite callus and have adopted a “it is what it is” attitude. I am now stage 4. I’ve earned my angel wings – lung scars on both sides of my back. I currently am enjoying a remission.

I live my life with this ever-present invisible stranger with nothing but bad intentions. You find your way, you have your moments and you live your new version of your life. Everybody gets something now don’t they? I’ve managed to be and stay happy, married, and I find something to enjoy actually every day. I’ve let go of the fear. After 10 years, you just do. My best to you all!
