I was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma and suffering from terrible hallucinations not understanding what was going on. Derek was able to successfully diagnose, locate and remove the tumor in my brain. I suffered short term memory loss, or so I am told - I am now living my life thanks to Derek and the staff at Seattle Grace Hospital, without them I would not be here today.
