In Fall 2007, Dr. Aral, who was the Chairman of Radiation Oncology at Staten Island University Hospital, told my mom she had 6 months to live., after being diagnosed with Stage IV Colon cancer. He told us to get her affairs in order. We went to Memorial Sloan Kettering shortly thereafter. With several surgeries and therapies, my mom lived another five years. God Bless those doctors at MSKCC. My advice to Dr. Aral....if you can't offer hope, at least offer an option. We are less than 20 miles away from the number one cancer treatment hospital in the world. You should have directed us in that direction instead of the direction of the funeral home! I hope that in the past either years you have changed your ways! Cancer is devastating enough. Giving a patient and their family no hope at all is heinous!
