So I got this wonderful email today.
Good morning Mike,
After spending some time on sMelanoma, Cancer Stinks! today, I have a brief editorial question about your page.
sMelanoma provides information, personal experiences, inspiration, and resources for those effected by melanoma in some way. My name is Emily Brown and I am working with Proleukin to help them broaden awareness of their cancer treatment program and resources. Proleukin is a form of immunotherapy that uses the body's natural immune system to fight cancer. Proleukin has been used for over 10 years in the treatment of Metastatic Melanoma and for over 15 years in the treatment of metastatic kidney cancer. Besides offering treatment options, Proleukin.com offers a vast amount of resources for patients and physicians who are battling these types of cancer. I am not sure of your familiarity with Proleukin, but I hope that it is a good fit as a resource for sMelanoma.
Would you be willing to look at http://www.proleukin.com, and include a link to it as 'Metastatic Melanoma' if you believe it is a valuable resource for your readers?
Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions at all, or for more information.
Mike, thank you so much for your time!
If she spent even a second of the time on my website that she suggested she would know that my values and goals are compleltey different than that of her employer. That being said, Emily your big pharma link is now posted on my site, mind returning the favor and posting my link on the Proleukin website? Just maybe if we can work together we can bring down Big Pharma once and for all!
Simply amazing how far these guys go to peddle thier drugs. I get emails ALL the time from them. The best one went something like this, we see by your profile that you have stage 4 malignant melanoma. Sorry to hear that. If you would allow us to call you with some questions about treatmet, you'll be eligible to receive $100. Good deal -- that'll get me a weeks worth of carrot and apples!
