Once he had a liver recurrence, we sought a 2nd opinion with Dr. Kemeny at Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC. If your sister is willing to travel, I would HIGHLY recommend she get a second opinion there. My husband received the HAI pump which delivers chemo directly to the liver. He is currently NED for the 2nd time. During active treatment we travelled to NYC once a month for treatment down there and were able to have his HAI pump and systemic chemo locally at Lahey in Burlington. (MGH doesn't have the staff or equipment to service the HAI pump). PM me with any questions. If your sister's doc is giving up, it sounds like she needs a new doctor!
