      This is a new report saying that aggressive treatment of lung cancer even if it has gone to the brain is still a viable option. You want to contact a Lung Cancer expert team. Call the lung Cancer alliance..found on the web and they can give you an expert. Also read some of my posting here to look for material on Lung Cancer to help you prepare.

      Don't worry there is a lot of options to consider. God bless.

      I am sorry I thought you said Lung cancer. Now I see I misunderstood you.

      Still call the NCI for a specialist in your area. God bless

    Oh No (Cancer has spread/Metastasized): Hello

    This is my effort to reach out to maximum people. My MIL was recently diagnosed with Cancer and we are planning to get her to US (San Diego) for treatment. We took this decision as me and my husband are both working professionals on visa and thought we can take care of her better here when she is with us. I have many q so though of posting

    1. How should I start about this?

    2. Is there a group in San Diego where she can get to interact with other survivors? How can I find this information?

    3. She is without insurance. Whom should I contact to get at least some kind of waiver?

    4. Which hospital is best for cancer treatment in SD or around orange county?

    I will post more details on type and stage of cancer once things get more clear in the results, but her initial biopsy has confirmed cancer.

    Any directions appreciated.

    Thanks in advance
