I'm searching for local Boston city center housing for my family to use when visiting me from Virginia during May and June when my surgery is scheduled. Surgery will take 5 days, recovery 5 in Mass Gen and then rehabilitation for 3 to 5 weeks near the hospital. This takes us into June and maybe early July 2012. I am seeking complimentary housing and very willing to provide some donation, however my family's funds are short. Travel to Boston area runs about $500 per trip - fuel, tolls, food. Visits will be infrequent but important! Thank you.

Radiation (Photon and Proton Beam): I am at Massachusetts General's Lunder Proton / Photon Radiation Therapy Center receiving 2 weeks of photon radiation to be followed by 3 weeks of proton radiation. This is a pre-surgery procedure to prepare my left pelvis, where the chondrsarcoma is located, for surgery. Currently (3/30/12) in the first week. No noticeable effects. Willing to share experiences.
