One Melanoma Survivor's Letter to Her Younger Self


In this week’s episode of “CURE Talks Cancer,” we spoke with a melanoma survivor who wishes she knew at diagnosis what her cancer journey would do for her – not to her.

If you had the chance to write a letter to your younger self, what would you say? One melanoma survivor wishes just one thing: “I wish I knew what cancer would do for me, not to me.”

In this week’s episode, we spoke with Trena — who recently participated in Merck’s Your Cancer Game Plan campaign, called “With Love, Me” designed to offer insights from patients and caregivers about the emotional, health and communication challenges of living with cancer.
