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.

A Christmas Wish

Just my version of Tony Bennett’s “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”…

Cancer’s future is far away
Cancer’s past is past
Cancer’s present is here today
Bring Yervoy that will last

Have yourself a very good prognosis,
Let your moles be right
From now on,
Your tumors will be out of sight
Have yourself a very good prognosis,
Make your skin doc gay,
From now on,
Our surgeons will take moles away.

Here we are from those bronzin’ days,
Happy bronzin’ days of yore.
Fateful tans that were dear to us
Gather fear to us once more.

Through the years we all will ‘screen together
We’re molemates for now
Hang a black ribbon upon the highest bough.
And have yourself a very good prognosis now.
