    i am really looking to find other resources or treatment centers that will be willing to help my mother rather than to let her go home to die. what is the harm in just trying. how dare they call themselves doctors if they wont even give it a shot. they have the knoweledge and resourses to save peoples lives or atleast try and they are turning them away. i have found a new goal in life, that is to be a REAL doctor. if you have anything, anything at all please help.

      Hello and welcome to the site. If you will repost this in the questions page, everyone who browses that page will see it. The way this site is set up, only people who follow you will see a status update.

      Lots of great people here with lots of help to offer. Post it there and you will get some answers. Have you contacted the American Cancer Society? The number is listed in the resources link at the top of the page.

      We wish you both the best.

    Decision Point (die in hospital or die at home): another tumor has formed and is obstructing her intestines. they do not want to do surgery on a cancer patient due to the high risk so it just grew and grew. now her second type of chemo has failed so they have stopped the treatments and are deciding to either do the surgery and allow her to die from it or to send her home to die "comfortably" from the cancer.
