I have heard of Crizotnib, good things, unfortunately I don't have the ALK mutation that makes it work well (my doc might try it anyway). I think it's still in trials. I don't know where exactly your brother in law is, but the following link will take you to Crizotinib studies in Alabama. You can change the search criteria if you need to.

*note - Crizotonib is also known as PF-02341066
