In November 2010 Nellie, a 65 year old Moscowian, underwent surgery to address a gastro blockage created by cancer of the large intestine. The medical team did not see the need to administer chemotherapy nor radiotherapy following the procedure. Nellie was residing in Cyprus where metastases in the liver were discovered in a follow-up visit. The Cypriot doctor suggested that she seek medical advise in Israel. Nellie contacted the iMER office who referred her to the Oncology specialists at the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem.
