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.

I think a special wish foundation helps fulfill wishes involving meeting a famous person or role model.

My nephew has been diagnosed with KR T-Cell non Hodgkin Lymphoma . And we are not sure what he is up against they are doing Chemo now.
He will go though 8 rounds he is on round 3.
He is a big fan of The Ohio State Buckeyes and I'm trying to see if I can find someone who knows how I may be able to get Coach Meyers to go visit him.
He is from Cincinnati but he has his treatments at James Cancer Hospital in Columbus.
Can anyone give me any ideas?????

That reminds me of the movie Beaches with Bette Midler. I have a bucket list and would love to do that with my fiance who is a woman sorry if that bothers you but I think it is so awesome that you want to do that. Also my fiance has not been to disneyland and we wish we could go but money stops us. Talk to Disneyland and tell them about your condition and let them know that it is a wish of yours that you visit Disneyland because you have never been there. Also tell them about the beach I bet they will make your wishes come true.
