MD Anderson has a list on their website. I worked in Oncoloy for 4 years and we had a lot of patients go there. I would also check out Mayo clinic and University of Wisconsin as well. At this point you would be looking for Stage 1 clinical trials, which not all facilities are able to do. Good luck!

You can call the American Cancer Society at their 800 number. They have a clinical trials matching service that helps you find appropriate trials that you are eligible for.

oh my. I’m so sorry!

I don’t have a resource for Colon Cancer, but when my FI’s mom was sick, she went through something similar. The hospitals around here stopped treating her and told her to just enjoy what time was left…but she would not take no for an answer. She found a hospital several states away that was doing research on her type of cancer, and she flew down for surgery. She did not survive surgery, but we are all still so thankful that this hospital was willing to at least try. The doctors were wonderful and they were world known for this type of cancer, so it was a great opportunity to give her a fighting chance. There is hope…you will find someone. It took her a lot of digging, but she finally found this place through lots of nights spent up doing research. I am thinking of you, this is so hard to go through.
