My name is Audi and I am 57 years old....Over three years ago I was diagnosed with Merkel Cell Carcinoma....I have undergone surgery, chemo and radiation treatments. This is the short of it. If there is anyone out there who has been diagnosed with this rare cancer, I would sincerely appreciate exchanging information - I belong to a wonderful web site dedicated to Merkel Cell containing many availble resources from throughout the country as well as access to MCC experts and others who have beaten the odds and others who are still battling this "bully".....
I was 54 at the time of diagnosis and considered a stage III. The prognosis was rather bleak, but here I am over 3 1/2 years later and PET scans still coming in clear. If you are interested in making contact, please do so.
