Thank you so much for sharing this info.

Having the list will certainly help those who are either new to the fight or who find themselves needing to change their doctor/hospital provider.

Hugs,

Marie who loves kitties

I believe Stanford ranked #10 in cancer; not too shabby.

I don't suppose Roswell Park Cancer Institute is ranked at all?

Kind of confirms what we hear on the forums about where to go for care, if it's possible.

Of course, I got my treatments and surgeries at an HMO that probably isn't even rated, and still survived, so everyone who has to make do with "lesser" facilities should take hope!

(my tumor got to go to MA General for a visit with their pathologist, but I had to stay home*)

 

*might be a t-shirt there...My cancer went on vacation and all I got was this stupid path report)
