      Hi Lizzie, at least the consult with Dr Smylie is free… just have her get a referral from her regular doctor if she does not want to ask her oncologist.. I did that and only had to pay for the airfare. The Cross has names of hotels that provide discounts to cancer patients (pick one with a shuttle bus service to and from the airport). Once mom gets to the hospital she will find a vast army of volunteer drivers who drive patients where they need to go. Let us know how it goes.. and good luck!! linda
