As I have an 18 year old who, by the mercy of God and the wonderful people at St, Jude Children's Research Hospital, has been in full remission from Hodgkins Lymphoma for 1 year this week, I feel joy and sorrow. Thanks for letting me vent, Sort of a rough day...
Oh, rivernan, I know how you feel. My sister passed away October 2005
after battling breast cancer for almost 5 years. I will keep you and yours
in my prayers.
I don't know of any treatment places in your state. The last year of her
life, my sister was traveling to Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina while she participated in a clinical study. My suggestion
for you is to search the internet for clinical or trial studies cuz there are
many listed. Lots of them pay for travel costs as well as give the patients free treatments. Another place I know of that does these is the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland.
