A Persistent Malignant Melanoma And A Persistent Person

by Rich

I had a friend who had a sore on the upper part of his back and it turned out to be a Malignant Melanoma.

After all the tests surgery was determined to be the best option. They ran a dye test to determine the path of that the skin cancer melanoma had taken. It had spread into his lymph nodes.

They did Skin Cancer Reconstructive Surgery and assured him that they got all the cancer. At a follow up test a year later they found that it had come back and now it had spread even further.

My friend was not even fazed by the new diagnosis. He just did what he did the first time when he was originally diagnosed he just dug in to fight and get well.

Even as he fought through the worst of days he never gave up he just pressed on. He was the picture of courage and strength through the entire battle.

Rather than getting discouraged he worked to encourage his family and close friends as he struggled with this terrible disease.

At the end when it was obvious that he was not going to win the battle he made his peace with God and passed from this life to eternity.

I will never forget his strength, courage, or that he endured the battle with great joy and peace.
