    I have been diagnosed with a LARGE choroidal melanoma, and I am due to have my eye enucleated on July 6. I just want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. If you would like to exchange emails, mine is [email redacted] and my name is Elizabeth. I think fear of the unknown (the future) is the scariest part of all.

    Decision Point: After three ocular oncologists have told me that I need enucleation, I am trying very had to accept that decision. "Enucleation Day" is scheduled for July 6, and each day I try to prepare myself for it. In the meantime, I am going to be researching every other treatment there is, but ultimately it is in God's hands.

    Cancer is the last diagnosis I ever expected, but this country has to dedicate more resources to defeating this horrible disease. It affects too many people, and in many cases destroys their lives even if the outcome is not death. Every American should do his or her part in this battle.

    Loss (Body part/function): Since I have had three opinions and all recommended enucleation, I am going to lose my eye, along with my mind and sense of humor. The unknown is the worst, and I cannot imagine life ever being the same after this. There are are other newer treatments, however, and until July 6 you can bet I am going to be researching them,
