Immune therapies- therapies that use the bodies own immune system- are now giving Melanoma patients with advanced disease real hope for long-term survival. And for the first time ever, a cure has become thinkable!
Immune therapies work very differently from chemotherapy, the therapy that most people associate with cancer treatments.
On this page, we would like to collect good educational resources for Melanoma patients and advocates to learn more about the immune system, new immune therapies and how these work in Melanoma.
