I agree with talking to Lisa. She stays fairly "local", and I know she loves her surgeon. As far as other centers, there are many. Traveling to them can be a chore. If you have the resources, I would suggest MD Anderson, Sloane Kettering (just not Nancy Kemeny) or one of the other "top 5". Minnesota might not be a bad idea for you. I realize it's pretty far, but fairly close compared to others.
As far as trials go, even the one I am on has rules. For Phase 2 the patient must have had one line of treatment that failed. I don't know when Phase 3 will start or what the rules are.
Having a care team that understands cc is very important. Having an oncologist you can talk to is also very important.
I wish you well in your search.
