Laughing at Cancer

In 2014 I had melanoma removed from my chest. The next year I underwent a lateral neck dissection, scapula tip harvest and lower mandiblectomy. 2016 I had melanoma. 2018 I had kidney cancer. Today I am sore from my 6th precancerous surgery in last two weeks. One biopsy of 6 got infected and now the removal is not healing. I also got type 2 diabetes again.

I keep a journal on “Laughing at Cancer”. Pictures are graphic.

Skin cancer scrape biopsies hurt worse than having my jaw removed! I am very sore.
