July 5, 2008
One year. Exactly one year ago today I found out I had melanoma. What I knew about melanoma then and what I know now is mind boggling. How this disease has gone from a mole to affecting my whole body is unknown. I did not ask for this disease. I did not invite this disease into my home. It has unwillingly taken residence in my body. My body. And it does not stop. Why is it so damn aggressive? It could've stopped long ago. But it does not give up. And neither will I. I will fight this disease with every being in my body. I will do whatever it takes. I will fight more aggressively than the melanoma itself. I gave up on the Interferon. My body could not handle it. That will not happen again. I will prove myself, and I am stronger than this disease.
