In June of 2010 I was diagnosed with an ocular melanoma tumor at the back of my right eye. In July of that same year I had brachytherapy. In March 2012, metastases were confirmed in my abdomen and I proceeded to have four infusions of Yervoy (ipilimumab) in the late fall of 2012 and then again in the late fall of 2013.
I also had two radiation treatments to the abdomen in March and April of 2012 and one radiation treatment to the spine in September 2013. I’m alive today. I am here. I can enjoy life.
