Jane is scheduled to go to San Francisco on Sunday with her sister. The purpose of the trip is to get GAMA Knife surgery and meet with Dr. Melisko. Jane will not be staying in S.F. but will return on Thursday.
Over the last week we have been in contact with UCSF a number of time and they have been working with Blue Shield/Cross to get the insurance company to approve the procedure.
At this time it looks like powers to be at Blue Shield are balking at the approval. They are overriding the recommendations of the doctor and it looks like they will not approve the procedure.
In any event, Jane will still go to S.F. on Sunday to meet with Dr. Melisko and Dr. Sneed, the GAMA Knife doctor.
Here is a news story about a lady who has a the same cancer as Jane, but Jane has had the whole brain radiation:
The two doctors that would be doing Jane’s procedure are in the video, Dr. Sneed and Dr. McDermott.
Right now the most important thing we can pray for is Jane’s complete healing and then for the insurance company to approve the procedure.
