My father died of stage IV melanoma when I was 13 years old. Ever since, I have wondered about the long-term effects that such a devastating loss might have on individuals. I am now a fourth year Clinical Psychology PhD student in New York City and I am thrilled that I have been able to turn this personal topic into a meaningful dissertation study. It feels like one way to keep my dad's memory alive.
