    I’m doing my best to change survivor statistics. Yesterday was my six year anniversary on Zelboraf. I’m still taking 720mg 2x a day and my only continuing side effects are photosensitivity, some body rash, and some foot discomfort.

    A week ago today, I celebrated my birthday and today I start my 46th month on Zelboraf, a targeted therapy for non-resectable metastatic melanoma. In order to celebrate these two events, I decided to have a colonoscopy; two small polyps and diverticulitus. Ha, I’ll even give myself another present in a few weeks with another prostate biopsy.

      I love to hear about long term survivors of metastatic melanoma. Congrats. Hope your new testing shows everything clean and clear.
