About this title


A Melanoma Patient’s Survival guide: Lemons Really Do Make Lemonade is an effort to bring awareness to the subject of melanoma. This insidious disease is being diagnosed in over 50,000 people a year in the United States alone. Melanoma will affect one in seventy-five people in California. That rate goes up each year. Melanoma can be a silent killer. This heart-warming book was written by a survivor of serious melanoma, Sally Welsh. Sally has shared her experience with thousands of people, and has prepared this book with the hope of making your journey a little easier. Her suggestions deal first of all with the questions you need to ask your doctor, before he cuts into you. You need to know about his initial scanning of you, whether he plans to use a “punch” biopsy or a “scrape” biopsy on a possible melanoma, whether he would send you for a Sentinel Node test if the melanoma was level 2 or more. Before treatment, you need to know the success rate of whatever drug is being prescribed for you. If you start on one drug and a better one is available, you may have lost the chance to be treated with the better drug. A good part of this book is devoted to using your mind, attitude, and sense of humor for your own healing. Casting out any negative thoughts that are consuming you and not listening to gloomy predictions will help you more than anything. Your mind is your best friend. Use it to help to heal yourself. The Lemonade book does not have all the answers, but it helps you to determine the questions. It is a commonsense book, but is not intended to replace medical expertise. Study, learn, and know what you are doing!

About the Author:

Author’s Biography Sally Welsh was born in Salem, Oregon, moved to Monrovia, California, and then attended Occidental College in Los Angeles, where she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in education. Moving to Newport Beach, California after college, she taught elementary school, and met and married Terry Welsh. With the birth of their two sons, Chris and Doug, she became involved in the local sailing world, spending lots of time in the sun. Her travels took her to Europe many times, Hawaii yearly, Tahiti, Australia and New Zealand, and sailboat cruising in the Pacific Northwest. After teaching for many years, she became co-owner of a canvas luggage manufacturing company supplying the local sailors, skiers, and travelers with custom made luggage. She continues to play an ongoing role as a volunteer in her church and her community, and now in the field of melanoma. Still active in the sailing world, Sally lives with her husband, Terry, enjoying her children and grandchildren nearby. Much of her time is spent on the water. Her older son, Chris, is a distinguished sailor on his boat, Ragtime, and her younger son, Doug, not only crews on Ragtime, but, along with his wife, Mary, has raised three fine young sailors, Charlie, Britty and Becca. As a consequence of all that sun and sailing, she has endured several episodes of melanoma that have given her insight into the disease. Her ongoing battle has fostered in her an interest in helping others who are facing (or know someone who is facing) the ordeal of melanoma. Her writings reflect her desire to assist people afflicted by it, giving them a resource for better understanding and for dealing with it. She does not call herself an expert on the subject, nor a medical resource. She is, rather, just another “Traveler on the Road.” She hopes her insight into the disease might help you and yours.
