Question Curious about H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute

I was wondering if any of you are patients of this cancer center, and how'd you rate it for a BMT? I'm already a long distance patient of Dana-Farber but I was kicking around the idea of moving to FL. Nothing is set in stone, just want to learn more.
I'm not exactly sure when my transplant will happen at this moment. I'll be going for another BMB in a month or so. Dana Farber wanted me to do the BMT in 2006.
Please, once again, share your knowledge with me if you can. Thank you!

Patient at Moffitt

I have MDS and am in clinical trials at Moffitt. I find it to be an excellent facility. When I was in the clinical unit, a fellow patient who travels from the east coast of florida was undergoing treatment. When I asked why they don't go to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville as it is a much shorter trip.

Her reason for coming to Moffitt was her daughter was previously a nurse at Moffitt and her som had a BMT at Moffitt eight years ago and is doing well. So that is one patient's view. Hope it helps in your decision making.
