    My apologies Sandra for missing your post until now.

    Have you checked out the nearest the National Cancer Institute designated cancer center? Sorry I am assuming you are in the US?

    Again very sorry for missing your post.

    I see you are posting from Jakarta. As I know little about the Indonesian health system I cannot really help you. Hopefully a member who lives in Indonesia may read this and offer a suggestion.

    Good luck

    Great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

    I may not have gone where I intended to go,
    but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
