My dad was recently diagnosed with melanoma on his scalp. He goes to the dermatologist every six months due to the history in our family- my grandfather (his father) died from melanoma and my aunt (my dad's sister) is fighting it now. Needless to say, it's in the genes.
He was getting his hair cut and this mole was nicked and wouldn't heal. So he went to the dermatologist right away and they removed most of it and the doctor didn't even think it was anything but sent it off to get it checked just in case and sure enough it came back as a melanoma.
He is going in today for a consult with a surgeon (we are thankful he was able to get in so soon) to talk about removing it and where to go from here. We are hoping and praying that it was caught early and has not spread anywhere else. My family knows this is in God's hands and is out of our control but will you please pray with us that this is just a "bump in the road" and that they are able to remove it entirely and that is has not spread anywhere?
My dad is a strong man and also the nicest guy, honest, if you met him you'd love him!:) I know he would greatly appreciate your prayers and so would we.
"For where two or more are gathered in My Name,
I am there in the midst of them."-Matthew 18:20
We love you soooo much dad and we're praying for you every day!!!!
