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.

Mallets for Melanoma 2014



On Saturday, July 26, Colorado Melanoma Foundation will hold its 2nd Annual Mallets for Melanoma event. Held at the Denver Polo Club’s facility near Sedalia, Colorado, the event offers a fun-filled and family-friendly day of watching the final polo matches of the Club’s President’s Cup Tournament while tailgating on the sidelines with family and friends; live music from The Platte River Pickers; and meeting other melanoma survivors and members of the Colorado medical community who are engaged in melanoma diagnosis, treatment and research. Further event details and online registration are available here.

Some readers may be aware that I’ve been known to participate in certain melanoma fundraising events clad in a black tutu. Please rest assured that it would take a large caliber handgun to get me on the back of a horse, with or without my black tutu, and you will not be subjected to the visual assault of watching me attempt to play polo in a tutu. The real players you’ll see are quite good at this exciting, powerful and fast-paced game!

Until next time, I’ll sign off with the Hotel Melanoma rendition of Gene Autry’s “Back in the Saddle Again”…



We’re back in the saddle again
Out where mole friends will attend
Where the polo ponies speed
On the lovely green sod field
Back in the saddle again

Ridin's the game once more
Totin' my cold ones from store
Where you ‘screen out UV right
And the Mole C doc won’t bite
Back in the saddle again

Whoopi-ty-aye-oh
Blockin' U, can’t glow
Back in the saddle again
Whoopi-ty-aye-yay
Let’s go that day
Back in the saddle again

We’re back in the saddle again
Out where mole friends will attend
Where the polo ponies speed
On the lovely green sod field
Back in the saddle again

Ridin's the game once more
Totin' my cold ones from store
Where you ‘screen out UV right
And the Mole C doc won’t bite
Back in the saddle again

Whoopi-ty-aye-oh
Blockin' U, can’t glow
Back in the saddle again
Whoopi-ty-aye-yay
Let’s go that day
Back in the saddle again
