A reader's own words

I am one of the creators and directors of Teb's Troops, Inc., a nonprofit organization created to help in the fight against melanoma. My girlfriends and I (we're all lawyers--we met in law school) created the corporation when one of our other girlfriends (Teb) was diagnosed with melanoma at the age of 29. She, sadly, died last July, but we are continuing to raise awareness about and funds for the war against melanoma. Website: www.tebstroops.org

Good for you for doing this. I was diagnosed with malignant melanoma (fortunately for me, stage I) while I was pregnant with my now 10 month old daughter. I cannot stress enough about the importance of early detection thru education and awareness. Keep up the good work.
