    I'm sorry your husband (and you) are dealing with this. I'm glad he used to be a vegan. It will be easier for him to go back to it! I didn't eat well and ate a lot of junk food, so it was a big change for me. I eat a whole food, plant based diet. Only food with 1 ingredient (spinach, carrots, apple etc) and nuts/ seeds. No animal products, sugar, processed food, or junk food. I juiced about 32 oz of vegetables ev...

      I'm sorry Phil is dealing with this. I know how hard it is. I was diagnosed in 2008 with a grade 2 oligodendroglioma the size of a softball. I had surgery then & again in 2009. In 2009, it was a grade 3 so they told me to do 6.5 weeks of radiation & 6 months of chemo (temodar). I didn't have deletions so they gave me 4-5 years to live. It started growing again in May 2010. My doctor told me I would need to start ...

        Tell your son to watch the movie Forks Over Knives. It explains how what you eat affects your health. Everyone should watch it. It was on Netflix, but not sure if it still is. I have an oligo with some grade 3 and no deletions. My 2nd surgery was in July 2009. I didn't want to, but did temodar & radiation. The doctors told me it wouldn't shrink it but it would hopefully keep it from growing. It started growing less t...

          Why is he getting nervous and doing treatments now? Did he have another MRI showing growth?

            Hi Lisa,  I'm sorry you are going through the brain cancer nightmare and sorry that it's growing enough that your doctor suggested radiation and chemo.  I'm doing great and haven't had any changes since my post. I get MRIs every year now, so I haven't been back for another MRI yet. I have no symptoms and wouldn't know I had brain cancer if it wasn't for the bald spot I have from the radiation. Radiation a...

              I was diagnosed with a softball size, grade 2 oligodendroglioma in August 2008. I had surgery (partial resection). I switched to Cleveland Clinic and had MRIs every 3 months. It grew slowly so I had another surgery in July 2009 (partial resection ~75%). The pathology report showed some of it was grade 3 with no deletions. I had 6 1/2 weeks of radiation and temodar. Then I took temodar from January 2010 through June 2...

                I had another MRI at the Cleveland Clinic this week. The MRI showed no change again! It hasn't changed since 2011. I'm on no meds and feel great. I'm still eating a whole food, plant based diet. Thanking God! ???? FYI - the movie Forks Over Knives is on Netflix now.

                  Hi Amy! I'm so sorry I didn't reply earlier. I don't go on this website much. I'm sorry your husband (and you) are going through this. I'm happy that you are both praying and asking God what to do. Listen to what God tells you to do. He will get you through this. Did your husband decide to do the Temodar and radiation?  I get MRIs every 8 months, so my next one will be the end of June. I feel great and don't ha...

                    I found out in 2008 that I had an oligo II. I've had 2 surgeries, I did chemo/radiation after the 2nd surgery in 2009. Finished chemo in June 2010. The tumor started growing again in May 2011. I went on a hard core, whole food, plant based diet and juiced vegetables etc. Instead of starting a new chemo at my next MRI appt in Aug 2011, the tumor was stable. My last MRI was 10/26/2015 and it is still stable. Nothi...

                      I agree about not doing chemo/radiation. If I could go back in time, I wouldn't have done it. I would have done the surgery. I just wish I had gone to Cleveland Clinic for both! I also agree that no one except God knows what is going to happen and how long you will live. Don't listen to doctors or statistics. In 2009, after finding out I didn't have the deletions, I was told I had 4-5 years to live. I'm st...

                      Brain Cancer

                      I was diagnosed with a softball size, grade 2 oligodendroglioma in August 2008. I had surgery (partial resection) & then switched to Cleveland Clinic. It grew slowly & I had another surgery in July 2009 (partial resection ~75%). The pathology report showed some of it was grade 3 with no deletions. I had 6 1/2 weeks of radiation and temodar. Then I took temodar from January 2010 through June 2010. The May 2011 MRI showed the cancer was growing again. God gave me a lot of signs to eat a whole food, plant based diet. I started eating this way in early June. God (and his food) healed me because the MRI 3 months later showed no growth! All MRIs through June 2017 have shown no growth or enhancement! :)

                      Watch the movie Forks Over Knives (on Netflix now), read Eat to Live & Super Immunity and go to www.chrisbeatcancer.com for information about how diet can help you fight cancer.
