@ Burch, good thing you went in! I had a small amount taken off my thigh. It was a "severe a-typical" mole. But as Paul would say, "When in doubt cut it out!" I was happy to get it off me!

July I do a virtual run to support Melanoma Research in Paul and Ruth's memory. Check out my newest site, to help honor their memory and make an impact in the arena of melanoma research:

I have raised almost $400 this year for the Melanoma Research Foundation!

That's funny, I have an appointment today. A follow up on the removal of my first superficial basal cell carcinoma; the dermatologist and I have begun a regular relationship.

I can't say enough about Paul and the impact he had on my life.

I had great joy in meeting him and Ruth.

Forever in my chalk bag, but more importantly, in my heart.

For many reasons, one being that I lived in the outskirts of Arcata 71-77 but mostly the way he came across:

the guy got to me. Love to all

Did not know Paul

But I do know melanoma's ugly face


My niece, here, fought hard and by so doing she won even though she passed.

A little late to this thread. I had the liquid N2 a few weeks ago. Now the cream starting tomorrow. Most of my face. Derm says I'm O.K. she's just being aggressive with me. At 44 it seems early but I guess not. I didn't know Paul but he seems very loved. Out of the sun for a little while and sun screen is my future make-up even if it looks funny and sombrero!

^^^^. Excellent advice...44 def not too young to be on top of everything. Paul was quite young.


Paul really helped me when I was Dx with ovarian cancer and started chemo. His outlook and attitude about facing a life limiting experience carried me through some very dark times. I felt blessed to have met him and Ruth several times. The fact they both passed within about a year of each other shocked me to the core. They were an incredible couple.

Paul’s Balls still remain with my climbing and outdoor gear and have traveled to many, many places; even if it wasn’t a climb but some sort of other wild adventure.

I miss them, and when ever this thread pops up I have tears of sadness and gratitude. He and I said if he were ever to do another first ascent before he passed we’d name it “Forever Remission”. That’s what we both wanted....he wasn’t so fortunate, I may be.

I miss him and Ruth. Wonderful souls together forever.

This is a thread I don't "like" bumping, 'cause it makes me sad. Still for just an online presence, Paul got to me. I'm going to be in Arcata in July 6th-13th and will be hitting some of my old surfing and beach-bouldering spots. dovalonso at g---- you know what.

SC seagoat, I'll miss your online presence.
