    Help for patient with pancreatic cancer

    We have a patient here in Las Vegas, NV who has pancreatic cancer (diagnosed yesterday morning) and she needs help very, very soon, immediately. Problem is, she has no insurance. Is there anyone out there that is willing to help out with this? We have called Houston and Los Angeles, but they would not help out (not naming any hospitals here at this point). I know this is a longshot, but it's all we have right now.

    Help patient with pancreatic cancer

    Sorry to hear about your dilemma. There is a brother in Las Vegas who just recently put together a blood conservation program and has access to several hospitals and numerous doctors. Give him a call. Perhaps he can assist. His name is: Jerry Montgomery and you can reach him @ (702)556-5406-cell; (702)671-8954-office. Also, he might understand the system in Nevada and be able to direct you to some state programs for assistance.
    Hope this helps!
    Wish you well,

    Help for friend with pancreatic cancer.

    I forgot to mention that we have virtually exhausted all resources here in Las Vegas, including Jerry Montgomery at Valley Hospital. That is why I am posting here, for possible help out of state.
