Dr. Von Hoff, heads up CARIS there is no more T.Gen it is now CARIS NOW.

This by far the best testing lab in the world. Their goal is to find a cure for cancer in the next 10 years based on the cancer genome they have collected from around the world. The next best thing is to find treatments that will prolong a cancer patients life.

Some Oncologist are resistant to testing and some insurance companies do not cover it. So I strongly suggest you tell your Oncologist you want period no ands ifs or buts. In case your insurance does not cover the testing contact CARIS NOW directly and they will work something out with you. They want those pathology samples. You may have to argue with the hospital to have them released but your Oncologist should help you get them.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
