I was 34 years old when I was diagnosed with melanoma. Today I am cancer free and enjoying life with my wife, Kathleen, and our daughter, Zoey.

I was 66 years old in 2009 when I noticed that a dime-sized mole on my back was beginning to change. My local doctor took a biopsy and diagnosed stage 5 melanoma. The diagnosis came as a shock, but also made sense; I had been a beach lover all my life and had not worried much about exposure to the sun during my childhood summers at the Jersey shore.

“From the beginning, Fox Chase was the best place for me. I have never met more caring and devoted doctors. I’ve been through a lot and I must say it’s because of Dr. Farma that I am able to enjoy this wonderful life I have been given."

I decided to seek medical care at Fox Chase Cancer Center in early 2015 when a biopsy of an irregular mole on my left thigh detected the presence of melanoma.

Leigh Raymer was 32 years old and pregnant with her son when she learned from her dermatologist she had malignant melanoma on her leg, shortly after she had surgery to remove a spot on her face that was basal cell carcinoma. She chose to seek treatment at Fox Chase Cancer Center, where she underwent surgery to remove the melanoma, followed by reconstructive surgery. On her 33rd birthday Leigh learned she was cancer free. "The whole team at Fox Chase is amazing," she said. "I was blessed to have Dr. Reddy as my surgeon. He went above and beyond in every circumstance. He made sure I could keep breastfeeding through everything, which was huge to me."
