    If you live in the northeastern U.S., were your cancer treatments affected by Hurricane Sandy, and have things returned to normal since?

    Were your medical professionals good about helping you through it?

      I'm way up north so directly no but my oncologist is a pretty highly recommended dr so a lot of people got delayed appointments and clogged up the system for about two weeks but its back to normal

      I live in north Manhattan - 1 mile from Columbia Presbyterian where i am being treated. I was fortunate that I was able to make my Dr appointment and infusion treatment as scheduled. DH and i walked down to the hospital (we beat out the traffic which was horrific), in fact there were so few patients able to make it, that even though the infusion center was a bit short staffed, I got out faster then usual. ps we cabbed home.
