About this item

With "Melanoma: It Started with a Freckle," David L. Stanley invites you to join him on an inside tour of his cancer. You'll travel with Stanley from the dimly lit and elegantly decorated office of the dermatologist to the fluorescent glare of the operating room theater and back to the workplace as he faces up to melanoma, the only major cancer that has seen its incidence rise since 2000, with humor, humility, and a deep understanding of the disease borne of research and science. In a memoir that speaks to anyone who has bumped up against a major health scare, Stanley offers up an engaging primer on how to finesse a path through cancer, the boogeyman under everyone's bed, with gravity and wit and honor.
