Danny (Katie's boyfriend) had some worrisome moles removed today that were diagnosed as melanoma. She doesn't know the details, but we think - hope - they were caught and removed early. He is only 18 years old!

Oh no!  I sure hope that they have caught them early!!!  I will be praying for him!  That's so scary!  I hope Katie is doing okay....kinda a big thing for such young kids to deal with not that it isn't difficult for anyone to deal with!!

Crazy, right? He's in good spirits. Getting loads of Xmas presents and looking forward to starting at Wake Tech with Katie in 2 weeks.

Katie said that the previous doc had said the moles were "fine" so I don't know if they really were all right then. She said the current doc told Danny that "without treatment he would have been dead in 2 to 5 years." I haven't heard anything from him yet, but I know melanoma is malignant and spreads fast. The weird thing is he puts on more sun screen and more frequently than anyone I have ever met in my life, just soaks himself in it (I noticed because the cans were all ours, LOL LOL)!
