On Oct 7, 2008 my husband of almost 15yrs was diagnosed with advanced stage 4 kidney cancer,my husband 41yrs old, since his diagnoses he has had his left kidney removed (10/14/08), 3 nodules removed from his left lung (1/2/09). We have been told that there are still 8 nodules remaining in both lungs and the doctors are not able to remove the rest.The doctors have not started any type of drug treatment and have admitted that they are unclear of what type of treatment would benefit him. How are we suppose to deal with all of this. I feel that the doctors and our insurance are writing him off, they sure don't seem to be in a hurry to do anything. I have written to his oncologist trying to get them to make some type of decision for treatment. He did want to send my husband to MD Anderson for treatment but our insurance keeps turning us down because they state they do not like the wording the oncologist is using. I feel like we are just spinning in a circle and my husband is the one losing out. I'm not ready to loose my husband and I don't know were to turn to get him help. If anyone has any suggestions I'll take them

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
