      Hi Kevin. 

       

      I am currently in Stage 4, and am in treatment  with Dr. Hamid and Dr. O'day at the Angeles Clinic in Santa Monica.  They work closely with the John Wayne Cancer Clinic, also in Santa Monica.  I would highly recommend that you make a contact with them and set up an appt.  They are on the "cutting edge" of Mel treatment, and will tell you honestly just how it is!  It's only about a 90 minute drive from where you live, and would be well worth your time to be able to access their expertise.  We travel 3.5 hours to get to Santa Monica, and feel is it very well worth the time. 

       

      Best wishes.
