Fighting Ocular Melanoma–Interesting Development

Thanks to one of the generous donors to my Run for Cancer Research for forwarding this New York Times article about a recent development in the fight against ocular melanoma. Unlike with other cancers (so far), a test has been developed that can determine a patient’s chances for survival. While such knowledge generates any number of questions (would you want to know?), the fact that such a test can isolate those with a worse prognosis could bring us closer to understanding what could change the outcome.

Here’s a link to the story:
