  • Peter Smith served in the U.S. Army for eight years. During his 2017 deployment in Iraq, he was diagnosed with stage three melanoma. While he was shaving, he found a lump that grew from one centimeter to four centimeters in a week. “I had no mole or weird tumor, which isn’t all that uncommon,” Peter said. “I think most people assume melanoma is just weird skin moles.” After weeks of scans and second opinions, Peter sought treatment at UT Southwestern. Jade Homsi, M.D., is treating Peter’s cancer with a drug called OPDIVO, a year-long regimen that he began in November 2017. “I’ve been through three scans since the diagnosis, and everything is going great,” Peter said. “My medical treatment with Dr. Homsi and his team is not comparable. I have absolutely no question that I am getting the best care in the world.” Staying active helps Peter maintain a sense of normalcy. While undergoing treatment, he ran a half marathon with his wife. He is also pursuing an MBA at SMU. Peter said, “The most important thing to me is that I don’t let cancer control anything or let it ruin my life.”
