Re: Spread into Peritoneal

You can seek out information at insurancewarrior.com for how to appeal. The author appealed her HIPEC 14 years ago and won. She had appendixeal cancer but there are several with colon cancer that are survivors as well. Could you check this link again? All I get is an insurance company, with quotes ...
