    I don't have stage IV, but I remember hearing about what Steve Doocy's wife went through. They visited their eye doctor in New Jersey, where he discovered a freckle on the back of Kathy's eye. Kathy was diagnosed with ocular melanoma, a type of cancer that develops in the cells that produce melanin. The doctor introduced the couple to a treatment called a radioactive plaque therapy. This treatment works through a sealed device, which delivers high-dose radiation to the tumor inside the eye. Kathy went through this treatment for five consecutive days. She is doing well now.
