Introduction

The "Hotel Melanoma" moniker is a metaphor for living with my particular brand of cancer. Except for those lucky few of us deemed "cured", all we cancer survivors are guests of one of the many, many branded hotels in the "Hotel Carcinoma" chain. We can check out any time we like, but we can never leave. Meanwhile, let's be livin' it up; and please support cancer education, prevention, and treatment research.

Bloggin' 'Bout My Melanoma

Sometimes I’m not quite sure why I keep doing this, but so far I just can’t seem to stop. So, here’s a new version of The Who’s “My Generation”…

People try to put us d-down (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)
Just because we don’t get brown (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)
Meds we take are awful b-b-bold (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)
Don’t wanna die before we get old (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)

This is my melanoma
This is my melanoma, baby

We know why we’re p-pale today (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)
And don't need to guess why we all p-p-pray (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)
I'm not gonna blog about l-l-lymphoma (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)
I'm just bloggin' 'bout my m-m-m-melanoma (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)

This is my melanoma
This is my melanoma, baby

Why don’t cancer f-fade away (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)
I won't ever g-get why cancer p-p-preys (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)
I'm not bloggin’ about p-p-pink c-c-carcinoma (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)
I'm just bloggin' 'bout my m-m-melanoma (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)

This is my melanoma
This is my melanoma, baby

Donors forget that we’re r-‘round (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)
Just because that p-p-pink abounds (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)
Let’s all beat statistics c-c-cold (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)
Yeah, don’t wanna die before we get old (Bloggin' 'bout my melanoma)

This is my melanoma
This is my melanoma, baby


When it’s time to stop, will somebody please tell me?
