I'm a Stage IV

Melanoma Survivor!

June 18, 2009 I was diagnosed with Stage IV Melanoma  and given the standard 6-9 months before my clock ran out...

April 5, 2013 I finished my last infusion of Nivolumab (Bristol Meyers Squibb's Anti PD-1) in a 30 month clinical trial with Dr.Weber at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida.

I have had NO  evidence of disease. As of today 04/28/2014- it's been over  5  years  that and I remain NED. ...My life  was interrupted but I'm still standing!

As you  can see, I am fond of Moffitt!  I highly recommend Moffitt from personal experience.  I have high praise for the cutaneous clinic, the clinical research unit and their AWESOME oncologists! Moffitt Cancer Center is one of 41 NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers in the country and the only one in Florida. Below I have listed the current clinical trials currently open at Moffitt.
