I read the article about Dr. Hwu in the [September/October 2009] issue with great interest. I wish I had known about Dr. Hwu six years ago when my wife had a melanoma taken off her chest. She died in July of this year of melanoma in her liver, lungs, and spleen. If we had known about Dr. Hwu and his melanoma vaccine, we could have used the vaccine just in case the disease had spread to other parts of her body. It would have been in the early stages which, according to the article, has shown success with the vaccine. I hope the article will help many other melanoma patients.
