Dear grace2829,

Based on the information and feedback I have, I think MD Anderson Cancer center, Houston, Texas is the best for such cases. Prof James Cox at the centre specializes in radiation for lung cancer.

Other centers that you can consider are:

Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York (Dr Richard Gewanter).
John Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland.

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston.

Mayo Clinic, Rochester.

UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles.

University of Chicago Hospitals, Chicago.

Stanford University Hospital, Stanford, California.

Duke University Medical Center, Durham.

University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle, Washington.

Smilow Cancer Center, New Haven, CT.

Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo, New York.

Hope that this information helps and hope that you will get better soon.

Hi grace2829,
If you have not yet found a center in jersey I definitely recommend Memorial Sloan Kettering in Basking Ridge.  My father has stage 4 cancer and he's doing great. The entire staff is amazing. Its a great clinic right here at home (I'm a jersey girl too) Good luck with everything!

Thanks ! We find out the plan today.  That MSK branch  in Basking Ridge is about 8 miles from us , so if/when they prescribe  Chemo,  we are thinking about it. Good luck to your Dad!
