    I have a friend that has been diagnosed and is getting treatment at a 'mid-level" facility.

      One of my friends is going thru something similar. She has had 2 "drive-by" surgeries for cancer: Had a breast removed & was sent home same day, another tumor in her lung was removed & she was sent home again the same day! This hospital is the pits.
      There is an excellent cancer facility close-by, but she refuses to go there. Who can figure!
      Nothing we can do.

      I had quite a few people ask me if I was going to get a second opinion when I was first diagnosed. I knew they meant well but I was a little offended at first. I felt like this was my thing and that I was doing my best in a bad situation. How dare someone second guess me. A couple of months in I could think a little more clearly and and did finally seek a second opinion and actually switched facilities. I credit my friends and family for being persistent and keeping those thoughts coming at me. I really think I was so overwhelmed at first that I just could not process it all. Maybe your friend just needs some more time to come to this conclusion himself

      Others have said it but it's not your choice unfortunately. I am in a similar situation and offer suggestions but demand nothing. I send helpful articles and information but unless I'm asked, refrain from commenting on the choices being made even tho I know this person is putting their life in danger (in my non-medical opinion). I spoke my opinion once and was shut down. The closest I come now is to share my personal experiences and choices as an example. But everyone is on their own journey and what you chose may not be my choice.

    This is what I like about WhatNext, it's good to hear about other people that have already beaten cancer and that I can too.
