I haven't been to either MD Anderson or Moffitt (but would if needed!), however I'm being treated at NIH in Bethesda, Maryland and I can't say enough for the doctors, nurses, even the food!    Monday I start MAGE TCR  which is a gene transfer therapy.   

My melanoma specialist, Dr. Evan Lipson from Johns Hopkins is wonderful too.  He has told me that without fail, he has never heard a patient complain about their treatment at NIH. 

I'm Stage IV and don't know if this will work but I pray, pray, pray and am full of hope.  My doctors are very excited about this new treatment.  I'll be the third person to participate.  Patients one and two are dong well but have not had their follow-up scans yet.

Faith and Hope!

Wishing you the best of luck for your trial Terri!!! My husband and I were extremely impressed with the staff at NIH. There were exceptionally professional, caring and very cautious. Even though he was not a responder to TIL therapy! we feel it considerably slowed down the disease and might be helping with his new trial. The TIL cells are suppose to last in your body for years.

MD Anderson is very good. My mom went there for her lymphoma, and I know that Melanoma is part of their "Moon Shot" Program. If you have any questions about it, let me know. I don't know much about their melanoma treatment specifically, but Mom and I lived in the hotel owned by MD Anderson (the Rotary House) for four months.
