3 years ago my wife Robin was diagnosed with stage 3 melanoma. She had surgery to remove it. The doctors wanted her on interferon.  After doing her own research, she decided against treatment.

In November, the cancer came back, now stage 4.  The doc said she made the right call about the interferon, turns out it doesn't work well for melanoma. Wants her on yervoy.  Again after doing her research, she has opted against treatment. This is not a knock on modern medicine or "giving up."  It is about her belief that her best odds are not with drugs.

She is exercising as much as ever, boosting her immune system and constantly sings "life is good today."  She doesn't really see it as a battle or fight but rather trying to heal.

What our family needs right now is prayers and positive vibes.

thanks

Eugene....Robin, and you and Nathan and your whole family are in our thoughts and prayers.

You guys know that anything at all I can do besides that, all you have to do is ask...

I will also ask all the guys out diving on Saturday to keep Robin and your family in their minds and hearts during the day.

Cancer f*cking sucks.

Sincerely,

Jim

Do it until you scream, then a short pause is acceptable.
Mental?  perhaps
