Cancer Treatment Center of America
Edited on Fri Nov-11-11 11:46 PM by no_hypocrisy
The mother of my friend is 70 years old and just received a diagnosis of Stage IV cancer (melanoma that metastasized into her brain, liver, and lungs).

My friend and siblings are desperate as the hospital oncologist just suggested palliative care and hospice. They want to take her to the Cancer Treatment Center of America in Philadelphia.

Does anyone have personal knowledge or experience with treatment there? CTCA is asking for $250,000 to get bumped in line as they have a two month waiting list and we have no time.
