    Scan results tomorrow -- praying for results as good as first one but hopefully even better. Any prayers would be appreciated. Hoping he gets a break from chemo for a few months as well. Hate the anticipation of waiting and not knowing.

      I know that feeling, waiting on results. Even when your just SURE that everything is fine, it's still nerve wrecking. We wish you the best of luck and clean scans with no red dots!

      Most of the time the closest place to start looking is at the center where you were treated at, or your hospital. Then, ask the social worker at your hospital/treatment center, they usually know about the local area and anything available. Also, you can contact the American Cancer Society at 800#227 = 2345 and see if they have any listed in their resources for your area.

      Others on this site may have suggestions for you also.
