Yesterday it was time for my biopsy results. I was mentally preparing myself for the worst, let’s be honest, I haven’t really had any good news during this journey. So I was ready. I wasn’t sure how I was going to react but I was in fight mode. Walking into my oncologists office I felt sick, I thought I was going to pass out. As soon as I looked up he met me with a lovely big smile. I knew instantly it was going to be good news. I had got used to ‘the face’. It was indeed good news. The biopsy revealed there were no cancer cells even though the PET scan had revealed it was a hot spot. So officially at the moment I’m NED (no evidence of disease) but as we all know with melanoma, it can be hiding and just not big enough to reveal itself. So I’m trying not to celebrate too much yet. I’m only on cycle 7 out of 18 treatments. Nearly half way there!!!!!!

Currently living in Hong Kong, I am originally from Liverpool, UK. In December 2019 my world was turned upside down when I found out I had Melanoma. It wasn't until after my 40th birthday in January 2020 that I discovered the melanoma had got into my lymph nodes putting me at stage 3. This blog was set up to document my journey. It is an honest and open account of everything we are going through as a family. We are currently taking one day at a time and trying to keep things as normal as possible. xx View all posts by Adele Hughes
