    Tired. Depressed. Still trying to work and get through this. There is no support in my area(Miami) for skin cancer. I have called University of Miami(who are treating me) support networks numerous times & no one has contacted me. No one seems to care. All I hear is, it curable, don't worry! Well, I have a hospice patient who has lost one eye and most of her face to basal cell carcinoma! I am currently dealing with the after effect of MOHS and plastic surgery. I just want this to end!

    Decision Point: Skin graph-I have had one so far(xenograph) and plastic surgeon says I may need another. I am seriously thinking about not doing it. Instead of the 2 wounds, I will have 3. I just want this to be over. I am tired of Doctors, hospitals, and fighting with the insurance companies.

      I have a Basal Cell Carcinoma also. Instead of treating it with surgery right away, they had me put this cream on it to try and shrink it. I will be having surgery soon and I am very nervous. Mine is on my chest. We can talk and support each other if you would like to.

      I used Curaderm. It is derived from eggplant and is not sold in the US. It eats the cancer even the root without harming the healthy cells. I found it to work as advertised. The hardest part is that you need to use it at least twice a day and keep it covered.

      Nickyinflorida,
      Thank you for your question. It reminded me of a blog article we posted on how to find the right support group for cancer patients.
