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.

If Elvis Could Still Sing

To the tune of Elvis Presley’s rendition of “Here Comes Santa Claus”…

It’s our cancer cause, it’s our cancer cause,
Some times it’s in vain
Komen is pinkin’ and all those runners
Getting all the fame
Black world’s cringin’, pink is winnin'
Black’s not merry and bright
Keep on blogging and say your prayers
'Cause Black’s cause is so right!

Here come tanning flaws, here come tanning flaws,
Right down cancer doc’s lane
Doc's got a bag that's filled with meds
For boys and girls who braised
Hear nurse call bells jingle jangle,
Oh a preventable sight
So jump in bed and cover your head
'Cause Ipi time comes tonight!

Here comes cancer doc, here come cancer doc,
Right down chemo suite lane
He doesn't care if you're rich or poor
He drugs you just the same
Cancer doc knows we're all sun children
Who burned everything bright
So fill your hearts with chemo cheer
'Cause cancer doc treats us right!

Burn those tanning beds, burn those tanning beds
Stop that tanning bed pain
We’ll all rejoice when the pale wins out
And we’re sunscreen ‘born again’
Black C’s death will come for all
If we just sunscreen for life
So lets give thanks to the Lord above
That tanning beds burn tonight!
