Welcome to Dear Melanoma

Hello there! My name is Emma Betts and I'd like to welcome you to my life and Dear Melanoma. 

Dear Melanoma is an honest account of my 24 year old life with Stage 4 Melanoma, which is a terminal diagnosis. It's all about the hopeful and happy highs, the heartbreaking lows, and everything in-between. Yes, you'll probably cry...but I'll make you laugh, too. Pinkie promise! 

Please join me. I want you to be part of my life. Celebrate the wins. Comfort me when the not-so-good happens. 

Most importantly, I want you to join me to make a difference. I want you to practice sun safe behaviour. I want you to teach your children to be sun smart. I want you to be an advocate for increased access to treatment options. I want you to help me raise money for research. 

I want your help. 

No, actually, I NEED your help.

I'm in this for the long haul. Are you with me?
