Topic: How to manage getting care at a distant hospital
What do patients do when they decide to get care at a hospital that is far away? Do they just move there with their families? We have a son in fourth grade, so it would mean going to a new school. We live in VA, but have had people suggest going to MD Anderson. I was just wondering how families cope with this decision and what they do. Our son has type 1 diabetes and we have been very happy with his care at his current school, so I am hesitant to move him. My husband has advanced CC. He is retired and I am a stay at home mom. He was in a trial at Georgetown, but we found out yesterday that it didn't work and the cancer has gotten worse.
