Hello again! Yep - just knocking a few of these out! I did warn you guys! Tuesday was a travel day and of course as everyone leaves is when the fresh snow starts! This is where I am glad I pay for the shuttle! Well worth the $ to just sit back and relax! It sure is pretty though!

Scan time again...Saturday, December 24, 2016
Once again I am totally behind the times in making posts! I always have good intentions lol! Had scans December 8th and saw my oncologist the 15th. Scans continue to show nothing new and nothing growing. The last scan I had that showed tumor growth was December 18, 2012! I started the Merck Trial for Keytruda Jan 2013. Even though winter is upon us - it's always important to protect your skin! Wear your sunscreen... see your dermatologist. I asked my doctor if we continue with the scans every 3 months... the answer was yes. At least for now. While these drugs have been available for awhile now, there is still so much we just don't know. His thoughts were he'd rather stay ahead should anything pop up again. Happy Holidays Everyone! Erin
A week in reviewMonday, September 26, 2016
Happy Sunday folks! This week has been quite the busy one! It started off Tuesday with my 3 month scans. With the UN General assembly in town, just getting to Sloans 55th St facility was a challenge in itself! Since most of 2nd avenue was shut down! After I finished that I had a few hours to kill before having dinner with my cousin. What better way to do that then facetiming with my niece and a little time in one of my favorite parks - Central Park!
LDW - Adirondacks camping!Monday, September 19, 2016
It's been nearly 6 years since I went camping. Guess too many other things came up each summer. It's been on my list of things to do here. So I was totally excited to when a friend asked me to tag along.

#Reasons2StandUpFriday, September 09, 2016
There are so many reasons to Stand Up! I'm proof that there has been so much progress in ways to fight cancer, but we have so much further to go! Many know my story. When I was diagnosed in Oct 2010 there were very few options for the treatment Melanoma. I sat in a medical oncologists office and was basically given a death sentence. I quickly started researching my options. That lead me to Sloan Kettering in search of clinical trials. In Jan 2013 I started a clinical trial of Mercks Immunotherapy drug Keytruda (anti-pd1). I'd spend 2.5 years on the trial. Taking 41 doses and having stable disease and nothing new!
