Leah’s Story 

Leah was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma in June 2020. Unlike many patients, who  are diagnosed after discovering an unusual mole or lesion, Leah’s journey started with a chronic cough and no known primary melanoma. Since her diagnosis, she has received immunotherapy treatment and undergone major surgery; a laparotomy and thoracotomy to remove two peritoneal tumours. Leah’s most recent scan has shown she is in remission. 

Leah has generously shared her experience with us.
