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.

Hello,I am taking care of a friend that has stage 4 cancer. He has a wish for a little boat and a hover round chair so he can roll around outside. Is there any place that can help with that?

Report this doctor to your state medical board. They will investigate him.

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.

vonnieboo52,

Have you considered posting your request on gofund me? You might get more response. Take a look at that website. You have to indicate how much money you need. Have you determined how much money you need for the trip? Also, from what I have heard, you need to send some persons (that you already know to your page to start out the contributions.)

May God's love be with you. Oh, and take a look at some of the prayers that I have written for others. God can bring you what you need for your trip to the beach. The prayers are posted on my public page. Scroll down.

We are looking for a variety if things. Everything from assistive technology, adaptive adult trike, home modification. We've made applications to a few places, and are still waiting years later. We have entered drawings for help , but unfortunately haven't been picked yet. We are on a waiting list in our home state for help... And are still waiting 7 years later. In the mean time she is regressing month by month.
