Miss Melanoma,

I just wanted to acknowledge and thank you for having me on your blogroll. We get about 11% of our visitors from your site.

I also want to encourage you to keep writing.

Open invitation to you and your readers to participate in the Being Cancer Book Club. This month we are discussing “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch. “...the lecture he gave ... was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because “time is all you have…and you may find one day that you have less than you think”). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living.”
Monday is Book Club day; Tuesday Guest Blog and Friday Cancer News Roundup.
Also check out Cancer Blog Links containing almost 200 blog links and Cancer Resources with 230 referenced sites, both divided into disease categories.
Please accept this invitation to join our growing cancer blogging community at
Take care, Dennis

Congratulations! I noticed that your blog was listed in Top 50 Cancer Sites & Resources by Asbestos News, as was my blog Being cancer, networking people transformed by cancer and others I am sure you are familiar with. I noticed the site as a referrer on my statistics page so I checked it out.
Take care, Dennis


I'm Too Young For This!
