    Israel would probably be the closest country to you that has new therapies for melanoma, please look under our web resources for global resource listing. Your mother’s melanoma is called mucosal melanoma and differs from cutaneous (on the skin) melanoma. She may qualify for the same trials, it is varying from trial to trial. She might try to get Yervoy (IPI) in India, not certain whether it works well or you have it available. Otherwise, if she comes the US she might spend a lot of money at some of the institutions. Might be best to call ahead. You should speak with a specialist in melanoma.
