We really do have to be our own advocate or rather my husband's advocate. After going to Houston and getting everything set up to begin clinical trial of Sapacitabine, I got online and found the same trial is being offered at Emory (just one hour from our house). So they were able to transfer everything from MDAA to Emory. Thank you, Lord.
If this trial doesn't work, we may very well end up at MDAA, but for now we'll be able to stay at home.
The last few weeks have really been a rollercoaster ride.

That'll make a big difference, Linda. How good that you checked.

Did they simply not think to tell you that you could be in the trial closer to home? If nobody is in charge of checking such things (other than the patients themselves) then that's a problem they ought to address.

Hey Linda!

I'm really glad that this worked out for you guys. I hope this new drug will fix Al up so much that we'll all be signing up for it!

Take care and good luck!

Greg
