Hello
Liver cancer is curable if it is an isolated tumor that arises from the liver and is removed.
If it is metastatic from the colon it is not curable but can be put into remission.

There are a number of good cancer centers
Mayo Clinic
Sloan Kettering
MD Anderson
James Cancer center

And so on.
Your doctor should go over what exact type you have and which of these centers would be the most appropriate.
good luck
