Keep Informed

At age 28, my son lost his battle with melanoma. It is imperative that you keep informed and tell you doctor to keep YOU informed of your loved one's medical status and whether or not they are responding to treatment. If you don't ask, they may not tell you. That's what happened to us so ask questions and make sure your doctor knows you want to know what's going on--good or bad.

  • I'm so sorry to hear about your son. My son lost his battle at age 24. I had his reports and asked tons of questions. In the end, we all realized, nothing was going to keep him here with us. I advocated on the importance of sun safety now and awareness.

  • We too, are involved in promoting awareness for sun safety. Our son was a lifeguard for two summers at college. I wish I knew then what I know now.
