    Thank you for the kind words. My wife, Rhonda, was taking NutriClean. This is from Market America. But it worked for her. She did nothing else out of the ordinary. Because she knew she was dying so she decided to live life. All the way until the end. It is still very fresh in our minds because it's only been since Dec. 31st, 2017 when she passed. As for her immune system we took several Isotonix supplements. This hel...

      My wife was on Avastin about 2 plus years. It's more the radiation that caused her to go downhill when she finally passed on New Years Eve morning about 4:20 am. I was by her bedside at the hospice and the nurse woke me to tell me she had passed. She had her last good day on Christmas day. We were able to have a two way conversation. All our kids and our granddaughter were there and our extended family. We opened gif...

        Thanks Bernadette, Like I mentioned before in another post, my wife never had any side effects nore did she have any seizures. She has been on Keppra for a while but something in her body changed and now she is having adverse side effects. Now that she's off we'll be taking it one day at a time and slowly keeping an eye on her all the time. Prayers and thoughts are with you also. John

          We have to be our own advocates. Doctor's think we do not know anything therefore they will prescribe at will sometimes. Unless we do the research we can never know how to defend our loved ones when they can't defend themselves. I do research evertime an issue comes up. That way I am armed with questions that they have to answer. When my wife was on Keppra I looked up the side effects and she had several of them. We ...

            They just did an EEG and it was negative so there is no need for Keppra. She was very lethargic when she was on it over the last few weeks. This came on suddenly because in the past she never had any side effects from it. So something changed that made this happen. She was in a comatose state for 7 to 8 hours every time they gave it to her. So we asked them to stop giving it to her and now she is almost her old self ...

                Hi Roland,      My wife and I have been at this for over 3 years now. We have heard of soursop tea. She opted to do apricot seeds and essiac tea instead. You can google both and get a wealth of info on the internet about them. They are both cancer fighters. I know first hand about essiac tea because my wife's cousin had a tumor wrapped around her spinal cord at the base of her brain. It was terminal a...

                  Just wondering if you ever got the list of supplements that my wife was taking? I responded a couple weeks ago. I'm wondering if you didn't see it if the website blocked it. John

                    Canertutor.com has a wealth of information. Start there. We get a lot of our info from that site. I also would check with Cancer Treatment Centers of America. They are an advanced cancer center. Remeber one thing. YOU are in control of your care. Do as much research on your own as you can . Look for any trials that are at least in phase 2. They usually have more results and you can tell if it's having good results by...

                      Hi debbipurple, I forgot to add my wife, Rhonda, is also taking digestive enzymes to help here digestive track so she rarely gets constipated. She is doing pretty well and is just finishing her second week of radiation.  I'll be praying for all of us here on this website as well as all who have to go through this. God bless. John
