I'd like to offer two other hospitals to put into the mix -- MD Anderson in Houston and Northwestern University Hospital in Chicago. What you might want to do for a consult with all of this travel craziness is to reach out to a particular doctor or group at a given hospital and see if they are doing video consults -- that way, you could send her records and possibly even copies of her scans (they should give you the slides on disk for free) to a particular doctor.
MDAnderson is generally rated as the best cancer hospital in the world. U.S. News also ranks best cancer hospitals in the US, and MDA is at the top of their list. Dana Farber, Hopkins, Northwestern, Mayo Clinic are all on that list as well.
To find a particular doctor to seek out an opinion from, try googling the specifics of her cancer (e.g., metastatic estrogen positive cancer) and you should come up with some articles about it. The co-authors are usually very solid people with whom to have a second opinion.
Best of luck with this.
