Thank you for this...my husband was diagnosed last year with malignant melanoma and it was and still is terrifying. It is always nice to hear that 10 years later you are cancer free! Thank you!

glad you are cancer free - 10 years! that is good

My very, very favorite Youtube video. I also cry every time I see it. Congratulations on being 10 years cancer free.Celebrate!

Son was just diagnosed with malignant melanoma--he is just 36 but the report just back after surgery that it was caught early and they got it all. We are double blessed in that his National Guard unit is called to Afghanistan this fall and we may not have caught it till too late. We had no idea or even thought the mole he had all his life was changing! thank you for your story and glad you are well!

Well done! 10 years is a great milestone :)

Good to hear 10 years have passed Erin. I'm in my 12th year, miracles do happen. Big hug for you, xxx Anita.

Sitting here, after no sleep all night, crying like a baby. I will share this with every young person I know. Thank you.

Mine was a basal cell on my face 7 years ago. The fear is still there, but life is definitely sweeter.
Congratulations on your anniversary! May you have a long, cancer free life so you can dance at your grandchildrens' weddings.

I can't believe it has been 10 years. Wow! Yippee!

We have a family friend who had stage 4 malignant melanoma. He was given six months to live. I am happy to say that 25 years later he is a grandpa to two adorable grandsons and lives a very happy and healthy life. Congratulations on beating it too!

Thanks for the video. Often I don't take the time to watch videos but this one was different. I have always told my family, friends, and students before they went on vacation or went out in the sun "don't forget your sunscreen." I knew that with my fair skin and history of sunburns (who knew, back in the '50s?) that I was a candidate for skin cancer. My dermatologist found and removed a malignant melanoma almost 2 years ago.
Congratulations on your 10 year anniversary! Though I still have anxiety about my cancer, your story and those in the comments help me concentrate more on my blessings.
I will continue to give my "don't forget your sunscreen" advice and now will pass the video along whenever I can.

Thank you for posting this. You may never know who it will affect, but I for one am going to forward it and also look at my numerous moles closer and more consistently.

Wow! I'm so thankful that you are here and inspiring us to quilt and to live life! Thanks!

I've lost two sisters and my mother to cancer.

Check your skin, your breasts and have an annual physical.

Congratulations on being cancer-free for 10 years. A celebration of life.

Thanks be to God and all the doctors and everyone else in your life that has sustained you through all of this. It sounds like you are truely blessed". I know that all of us are thankfull to have you as a part of our lives and I hope and pray that you will continue to be blessed for many more years to come.

Good on you young lady! God is great. You should live a long & healthy life. God bless.

My husband was diagnosed with stage 3 Malignant Melanoma at age 19. He had a 12 inch circle of tissue removed from his back. He is now 51 and going strong. When I see that "crater" in his back, I thank God for saving him. One thing is certain - God is in control! He has a plan for your life and sharing your gifts is awesome!
