Summit Panelist

Jennifer Salness is a Stage 4 Metastasized Melanoma Patient. She has experienced Melanoma, skin cancer, since 2018 and it has metastasized twice into lymph nodes and the colon. Her fear of the medical system prevented her from taking care of a spot on her skin for many years and she was diagnosed at Stage 3C. She has navigated the ins and outs of the medical system with grace and appreciation through hundreds of appointments, consults, surgeries, procedures, and 2.5 years of Immunotherapy treatment. She complemented her treatments with oncology massage, acupuncture, energy healing, and other mind-body practices to support the rollercoaster.
