      Horrible Doctor lied to my husband made him believe he could cure him. My husband had already had polycythemia and had been on high doses of hydrea for six years the hydrea had did a lot of damage to his organs he never had a chance for a bone marrow transplant yet they lied to him up until the day he died and my husband held on to that lie and hope. He died a slow and painful death fighting against hospice thinking if we could get him to another doctor he would be ok. If doctor Kota told the truth he would have skipped the chemo and saw friends and family before he died instead of worrying about infection and we would have been able to get him in hospice 10 days earlier. If you can go to Hollings in Charleston SC -August University had the worse doctors and the worse care of a cancer patient I have ever seen in my life.
