I first noticed a pimple on my left cheek which I cut shaving back in June 2013.
I had my first infusion on 11 Sep and the second one on 2 Oct. On the 19th Nov I received the results from the first scans taken following the infusions. Miraculously there was no active cancer.
The tumour was successfully removed and it was only then it was confirmed it was a secondary melanoma – primary unknown!
In 2017, as I was reading in bed, I discovered a suspicious lump under my right arm.
In July 2019, I was diagnosed with Stage IV BRAF+ Metastatic Melanoma after being admitted into hospital with severe anaemia.
In August 2019 I visited my doctor for persistent back pain. A CT scan identified a lesion in one of my ribs and suspicious spots in both lungs.
