Re: Allie Kiick diagnosed with skin cancer

That's really scary in someone so young, though melanoma is getting more common in young people. I had a friend pass at 42 of melanoma. The skin is just another organ and that shit can spread. But hopefully as she said it was caught early, though I don't know what 'rare strain' she has.

I am very fair skinned and have been sunburned countless times, so I know the damage has been done even if I now wear sunscreen every time I'm outside for more than a little bit.

Re: Allie Kiick diagnosed with skin cancer

Are you telling me that you get a cancer diagnosis over the phone in the US?

Hoping for the best, a melanoma is not such a bad cancer and it has been caught at an early stage so the prognosis is good

If you tell your doctor, and they agree, that you prefer to get your results by phone it's very possible.
It can expedite setting up the treatment plan.

Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer and there are many different strains, some more aggressive than others.
Some strains have a better prognosis than others.
Early detection is always a plus.

I hope that Allie will be able to eradicate her cancer and have a full recovery.

Re: Allie Kiick diagnosed with skin cancer

Sorry to hear

Hopefully she gets in touch with Brengle for some moral support.She went through a similar diagnosis late last year.

You could have looked it up, but you didn't. I didn't think that was a serious question. I thought you were trying to shade her for not being a very famous tennis player. That would have been tactless, but it wasn't your intention, so it's all good.
