I was so honored to be asked by the Melanoma Research Foundation and Novartis to write about the BRAF mutation of my melanoma, and just how knowing it made all the difference in my getting the right care in record time, which made a crucial difference in my survival. Please read my essay and share to anyone who might find it helpful!
What’s going on here these days: I’m anxious to be rid of the Superspreader in Chief and all of his hangers-on; anxious about our elections being free, fair, and safe; and anxious about the transition period. Part of me wants to be suspended in a sensory deprivation tank until January 21. However, I have scans this coming Monday, adding my usual scanxiety to the general anxiety. As always, I’ll be sure to post scan results here when I have them. I’m so glad to have you following along.
UPDATE: Scans all fine! Sorry for the delay in posting my results. I forget that not everyone is intravenously connected to Facebook. (I’d love to sever that connection myself.)
