      MD Anderson Cancer Center. They have a few locations around the US and they are one of the worlds leading cancer treatment facilities. I can honestly say that without them, I would have kicked the bucket.

      They turned my terminal diagnoses of less than 2 years into a "Oh wow. Your tumor is completely gone!!"

      Mayo is an equally amazing facility. The Royals send their family members to one its so good!

      Well they arent sure lol. I did Proton Therapy [which you and your wife should look up]. After the Proton Therapy my tumor was 75% gone. We are pretty sure Proton did the trick. If it interests you let your doctor know you would like a refferal to go to a nearby hospital capable of providing it for you. Then go and have a consultation to see if the Proton Therapy could benefit you guys. It's much better than standard radiation.

      Don't ever accept the "we cant do much" speech. Theres always more they can do in other hospitals. I wish you and your wife a triumphant journey!! Your wife is now a Warrior and the chemo will be her sword!!

      I have bile duct cancer and I am being treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering in Manhatten. I have a Hepatic Artery Infusion pump (implanted chemo pump that pumps chemo directly to liver -- no side effects).

      MSK is an amazing cancer center. Check it out on the web. People travel from around the world for treatment there.
