Melanoma patient Steve Martin shares his thoughts on the Moon Shots Program

http://cancermoonshots.org Steve Martin was diagnosed with stage IV melanoma in January 2012 at age 34. He has two daughters, ages 2 and 10 and had just started a job working from home when he felt a strange lump on his neck. It was directly above his right clavicle and was swollen to about the size of an egg. The result was a diagnosis of metastatic melanoma. His ENT referred him to a general oncologist, Dr. Amy Hassan, at MD Anderson Regional Cancer Center in the Bay Area. Dr. Hassan sent Steve to MD Anderson's Texas Medical Center campus for an MRI, CAT scan and PET scan. The official diagnosis: stage IV metastatic melanoma. The MRI was clear, the melanoma had spread to Steve's lymph node, adrenal gland and lower left lobe of his lung. Dr. Hassan then referred him to one of the melanoma specialists at MD Anderson's main campus, Dr. Kevin Kim who started Steve on biochemotherapy.Steve was one of many patients present at the moon shots announcement press conference and he shares his thoughts in the above video.Read more about Steve and his journey here: http://bit.ly/NP0XHv
