I'm a Methodist pastor in the North Carolina Conference, wife, mother, and Granny, who is a stage 3b melanoma patient/survivor/thriver who wants others to know about and understand melanoma. I don't want my story to become their story. A big push with me, right now, is to remove melanoma from the "skin cancer" category and help others understand that it is so much more than that. I also want to get people to melanoma specialists once they are diagnosed, and also into the hands of dermatologists who make melanoma and skin cancer the sole focus of their practice.
