I was wondering how many members are from South Carolina and if you are receiving treatment in state? Thanks. I am in Greenville.

I'm being treated in spartanburg at the Gibbs cancer center. As of today it is the only MD Anderson Affiliated cancer center in SC. My Surgeon in Dr nguyen, my oncologist is Dr curran, my interventional radiologist is Dr Freidman. They took me from an extremely bad original prognosis to NED for about three weeks. I've recently had a recurrence but they are on top of it for now. I have trusted them with my life and they have proved extremely competent, aggressive, reliable, forthcoming and trustworthy. They work as a team and get stuff done right.
