Thanks for the update, cancer sucks. Have known quite a few people who has passed away from Metastatic melanoma. The company I work for just received approval for an immunotherapy for Metastatic Melanoma which is based off a modified Herpes virus that helps to attack the tumor and activate the body to fight to the tumor. The virus is injected into each tumor.

I wish Reese the best and it seem like the GoFundMe campaign is going well.

My brother in law has survived for 6.5 years through many different experiments protocols. The treatments are devastating, but the alternative is worse. Being on the water, out in the field and outdoors in general is dangerous even with protection. This is a sad moment and there isn't much more to say. Nice that we have such memories and smiles from Reese. Very sad.
