Check with the American Cancer Society. They know more about resources for cancer patients and may know of places you can contact. Thank you for being such a good friend.

Just need someone to talk to.. My husband is a stage IV prostate cancer survivor, however it metastasized to his bones. It has been a tough road for both of us, me the caretaker and him the cancer patient. His previous oncologist would not listen to him regarding his pain for 6 years. He would have my husband take test but relied on what the radiologist read on his MRI's, CT's and Dexa scans. He would not research any further. He made my husband feel like he was wasting his time. We decided on changed our oncologist, for a second opinion and he was very concerned and caring. He had a PET scan done on my husband and he found that the mestatic cancer has spread from his pelvic area, to his whole spine, left shoulder and his scull. The new oncologist has found a treatment for my husband, I just pray and hope it works. Now for the previous oncologist, he took life from my husband, do not know how much, but how do these doctors get away with this. I want him to be accountable for his actions. He gave up on my husband. In fact so did his pain mgmt. doctor. Now we have new doctors that have to pick up the pieces of the selfish previous doctors that took money from us.
