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.

Run Run Boomer

It’s been snowing here and I’m working on my Grinch attitude in preparation for the Holidays. So here’s my version of Justin Bieber’s-- OMG!!, LOL!!!, brain freeze – I mean Chuck Berry's “Run Run Rudolph”…

Like a lot of boomers you know you’re the chemo kind
Run, run boomer, Black C ain’t too far behind
Run, run boomer, Doctor’s got to make all his rounds
Doctors make him worry, tell him he must take the UV’s down
Run, run boomer ‘cause you’re whirlin’ on a merry-go-round

Said Doctor to his patient what have you been longing for??
All I want for Christmas is a normal mole and no more scars
And then away went that mole a whizzing like a shooting star
Run, run boomer, Doctor’s gonna make C go down,
Doctor’s lookin’ worried, sayin’ you must take some chemo rounds
Run, run boomer, reeling like a merry-go-round

Run, run boomer, Doctor's gonna lose you some pounds
Doctor's says to worry, chemo's gonna give you lotsa frowns
Run, run boomer, chemo's like a merry-go-round

Said Doctor to his patient what would please you most to get??
A normal MRI that will show brain’s well kept
And then away went scanners a whizzing like a Saber jet
Run, run boomer, Doctor’s gonna cause you no frowns
Doctor says “no worries”, sayin’ you can party Christmas down
Run, run boomer cause you’re livin’ on a merry-go-round
