Dave, there is a well-known cancer treatment center in Seattle--the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, I think it's called (it's referred to in the cancer treatment world as "the Hutch"). If you are looking for a center nearer your parents, as opposed to nearer to you in LA, you might want to look into that. I have no specific names to give you, unfortunately. I know of a woman who was treated there for a different kind of cancer and at the same time was being treated at Bastyr College in Seattle. Bastyr is one of the few centers in the US that trains homeopaths. By working with both Bastyr and the Hutch at the same time, the woman went through chemo with remarkable results--never got low blood measurements, etc. She's still alive and kicking today, and credits her success with attacking the cancer on two fronts--chemical and herbal/food supplements. As I said, this was not PancCan, but another type of cancer. However, it's something they may want to consider. Good luck to your family!
