My husband had his surgeries in Iowa City at the University. Duke is a top notch brain tumor center. I would have loved for my husband to go there but traveling that far is not an opition. Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a great place, they are known for taking risks other hospitals won't. They have some all over the world. We went to the one in Chicago and loved it. But they couldn't do anything different for him than home so we stayed with our home doctors. I wish your friend the best. Sorry I didn't reply faster, I hope others did. My husband was pretty sick for awhile.

Check Virtual Trials web site for a wealth of resources especially article by Ben Williams on treating GBM.  Also, Google The Median Isn't the Message by Stephen Jay Gould.
