Chronicling our journey through pediatric melanoma
Wednesday, September 8, 2010
I'm going to Houston this afternoon to party all night with Jeanne & Co. visit Dr. Hughes for Rachael's monthly check-up. Should be very routine and hopefully we'll get to meet another family who will be starting interferon soon.
In the meantime, I'll leave you with a baby picture of my sweet warrior.
My husband Tom and I have been married 12 years. We have two kids, Marc and Rachael and were firmly planted in the "bad stuff doesn't happen to us" camp. On September 10, 2009 we were told that our 5-year old daughter's "most likely nothing but needs more attention" mole is an extraordinarily rare stage 3 melanoma.
Her life is most likely not threatened as we caught it early and her long-term prognosis is really excellent. However, the journey back to full health we have been told will be a long one. This blog will attempt to follow that journey for our whole family.
