I’d been to the Cancer Center to have blood drawn this morning and was sitting on the train on my way home from the City when my cell phone rang. My doctor announced herself.
“Oh dear,” I exclaimed. “Was I supposed to see you this morning? I wasn’t aware I had an appointment.”
“No, she said. I’m calling because ABC contacted me. They’re doing a piece on melanoma awareness and they want to interview a couple of my patients. They asked for someone who’d had melanoma on their foot and I thought of you immediately. People need to know that melanoma can show up in unusual places and they need to see more of cancer survivors.”
We talked about it for a few minutes and I agreed to the interview this coming Tuesday. I’ll let you all know when and where to find the broadcast.
My big decision at this point is whether or not to wear the wig. I’m leaning toward “not”. In fact, I went to my lab appointment in the City this morning without it!
