Question: UC patient with skin cancer history?

I am a 10yr diagnosed UC patient. In the past three years I have had four cases of basal-cell skin cancers and one melanoma skin cancer on the chest.
Several drug options have since closed to me, as well as the ability to participate in any studies. I am currently working on getting compassionate release for a new drug (Vedolizumab). Is anyone else on this similar road?

Vedolizumab makes sense in this case.
