Survivor Stories

Ken Fraser

Hello, my name is Ken Fraser. I am currently 29 years old. I was originally diagnosed with Stage III melanoma back in 2011. I had a mole come up on the left side of my face and another tiny spot on my neck. I had surgery to remove these, along with a lymphoid, and radiation afterward to get rid of it. I had thought it was gone, until I discovered some spots on my scalp this past November. I had two different doctors look at them before the third doctor finally ordered a biopsy.

I was told on Feb. 19, it is Stage IV melanoma. It’s great to read everybody’s story for inspiration. I have been trying to be positive about this whole thing. I am currently getting a ton of support from my family and friends, and it seems everyone has some suggestions. It’s tough to filter everything out and make a decision.
