GBM diet: alkaline, keto, vegan, which is best for this type of cancer?

My dad, while still awaiting biopsy results, is presumably dealing with GBM and I know that nutrition is extremely important.  Hoping to hear from survivors who have followed a particular diet, which diet is most preferred for this condition?  Thank you!

I read a lot about the keto diet on various GBM support groups. If you're on FaceBook, and if your dad's diagnosis is what you suspect (I hope it isn't!), look at some of the support groups there for quicker responses to questions. Also, here's a good resource: "Treatment Options for Glioblastoma and other Gliomas Original document authored by Ben A. Williams." If you put this in your search window, it should be easy to find.
