Sorry to hear about your dad. It was good that you pushed further but now you need to see if you can get your Dad to a major PC center, like JHH.

To be honest, PC is very deadly and often, like your Dad, it is found after it has spread and taken hold. However, that does not mean that nothing can be done. Chemo is probably the best bet to halt the spread. He also needs a palliative care doctor to help with the other symptoms so that he is not suffering.

Contact PanCAN (www.pancan.org) - they have staff you can talk to and lists of PC specialists.
