Maybe someone on here has experienced this, so fielding it to the GT folks. My friend's daughter got diagnosed with cancer a few months ago. It's an incredibly rare form, especially in her age group. So rare in fact, they don't even have statistics. She was taken to a local hospital for testing and the oncologist (Top 100 In the Nation! bleh) started putting her on chemos that had nothing to do with her condition. The cancer spread, she got very bad. She was overdosed on morphine and was a zombie for over two months. My friend worked night and day to find a cure, and she found one...in Germany. It's not approved here in the states yet. But there are specialists devoted to this type...and that's where the fighting started. So bottom line, how does my friend not get discouraged by the 'other' side of the family doing all the wrong things? So far she's pretty much saved her life, getting her lined up with the correct specialists and is on a better chemo (and got her off morphine too). Please don't say stuff like "I'm sorry" etc, just looking for advice. BTW her daughter is doing a LOT better on the patch and the correct chemo.
