Re: H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center...

I am so sorry that you had that experiance aT Moffitt and my prayers are with you. I do though have to come to both Moffitt and Dr sommers defense.My husband was diag with LC in may 3005. We went to two surgeons and they both said they did not think he could be operated on since his tumor was 10 cm and close to the esophagus (sp). We then went to Moffitt and saw Dr Sommers who after reviewing my husbands x ray and CT scan said that he saw no problem.He took my husbands right upper lobe out and took some lymph nodes out to test for any cancer and they came back negitive. My husband has been cancer free for almost 2 years.
I would blame the lab and not Dr Somors for that mistake since it was the lab that did the testing. Have you contacted them.Maybe they can be of some help Can you also pick up Cobra as your heath ins. If you were termenated at work and that is why you lost your ins you should be able to pick up Cobra.
Again my prayers are with you.
