Hi All, In an unfortunate turn events my mom dx in July, surgery Aug 1 thought the MRI she just had with good results was a sigh of relief. However, Dr. Friedman from Duke called me and said he felt completly opposite than University of Penn when it came to the upcomimg treatment she was to receive. At this point it looks like she is entering a clinical trial. I don't know the specifics yet but I do know she would be able to do the treatments at home (New Jersey) and would only have to go to Duke (North Carolina) every 8-12 weeks. Hope all are well and enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving. Dana

Hopefully...I;ll be praying for you guys and hope all turns out well. Duke is a great place to go. I don't know the mileage you have to cover but there are some organizations that will help you. Maybe not this time but for the next trip, because it takes some time and planning, you can get in touch with some of them. One of them offers free flights for treatments. I don't have the info but i will try to dig it out and let you know. "Angel Wings" I think.
