      There is a Stage IV MPIPer who lives in Buffalo who needs our help.  She has been accepted into a BRAF trial at Mass General and was scheduled to start the trial today.  However, due to weather conditions, her flight was cancelled.  Her husband is able to drive her to Boston but needs someone in the vehicle with him to assist his wife.  She is weak and in pain.  This whole situation could change at any moment.  A flight might open up or a family friend might be able to help out.

          Thank you for your emails.  This MPIP family is the best.  For now, this request is on hold.
