Melanoma Melodrama: A Medical Memoir
Chuck Myer was an urban planner, freelance writer, playwright, consultant to arts, government, and religious organizations, and an actor and musician. He has been described by many as a "Renaissance Man." Melanoma Melodrama is Chuck's graceful and courageous narrative of his battle with cancer. You will learn about a potentially fatal misdiagnosis doctors commonly make for malignant melanoma, about the course of the disease, and about available treatments as reflected in the author's own experience. Most importantly, you will come to understand from this first-person view how vital it is to face the diagnosis resolutely and assertively, and to prepare for the difficulties that accompany treatments for the disease. Author Chuck Myer writes, "I wish to tell my story, in the simple hope that it will help a future melanoma patient grapple with the sudden awful realities brought on by a seemingly benign spot on one's skin." Chuck Myer passed away on Saturday, September 6, 2008.
