My name is Leonardo Almeida and my father was diagnosed with hodgkins lymphoma at about one year ago, he made a chemotherapy treatment, and according to the doctors, it is in complete remission. we're going to Las Vegas and we'll be in town between 6 and 15 September, we would like if possible, someone who showed us a place specializing in hodgkins lymphoma to take a pet scan and their diagnoses, we would also, if possible to analyze the test he did here in Brazil. His doctor wrote the following medical report which will be taking with us:

Hi Leonardo,
Before you come to the states you might want to call and set up an appointment in advance. You will probably need pre-approval from your insurance for the second opinion consult and the scan. Here is a web-site for a very good Cancer Center in Las Vegas. www.cccnevada.com. Click on patient resources and you should find a number to call to get things set up.
Good luck and best wishes for your father. Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10)
