Response to The Genealogist (Reply #33)

36. Oh my gosh, how horrible, I'm so sorry.

I hope your doctor runs blood panels every year to catch anything odd and notes changes in your skin. My husband, his mother, and paternal grandmother all had forms of melanoma and my husband died of metastasized ocular melanoma. My sons are checked out thoroughly every year and blood panels run to check for abnormal blood counts, and so far so good. Their father died when he was 45, diagnosed at 44, so I was a widow at 37... That horrific anniversary is January 14th. My eldest is now 37. Awareness can help break the cycle, but genetics plays a very big role. May you enjoy multitudes of years of excellent health.
