My lovely dad (60 y.o male, 5'10" tall, 78 kg weight, doesn't smoke and doesn't drink, previously had Hepatitis B) who's always been my role model and hero in life got diagnosed with sarcamatoid carcinoma starting from liver and spread all over his body (Stage 4 liver cancer). It started when a careless doctor performed a blood transfusion when my dad had an accident a few years ago and needed operation on his leg and the injected blood had a virus for Hepatitis B. We believe the cancer cells come from this liver infection of Hep B. He currently has Jaundice and a bloated stomach and cancer treatment can't start unless Jaundice goes away first. The doctor told him about his diagnosis and he seems to have lost all his fight. How do I help him feel better? I can't think straight but I want to do anything and everything I possibly can to help him get through this. The doctor's plan is to cure the Jaundice ASAP and start chemo treatment. Please people of reddit, tell me what I can do? He is already admitted in one of the best hospitals in my city but I want to move him to the best cancer facility in the world; So where is that?
