Thank you for this information. Our 8 year old daughter Amelia was diagnosed in Sept with a stage IIIa melanoma on her left jaw. She had the wide area excision and lymph node dissection early this month and is about to start on Interferon 2b on Monday. My wife and I are scared to death of the side effects--both temporary and permanent--that we have read about on the internet.
It is reassuring that of the 3 pediatric melanoma parents I have talked to all have said the Interferon was not that bad. I pray that is the case for our daughter.
Thanks again for the post.
