Eat healthy is the best advise anyone can give you. There may be a few things you can do when going through therapy. One of the most important is to keep hydrated (lots of water and liquids). You sould ask your docter abiut that.
In terms of things you can do to help fight the cancer you will probably get a lot of information about this diet or that protocol. To date the link between Brain cancer and diet are scanty. I ,for one, am not a believer but you will see different opinions on this board.
Currently 2 + years since recurrence.

There is always hope Ali0226. Google Ben Williams and Cheryl Broyle. My niece was diagnosed with stage IV brainstem GBM in January and is following the same supplement regime that Cheryl follows. In fact they have the same nutritionist from Washington. My other niece, her sister, is very health conscious and has been researching the nutritional aspect. By following a very healthy diet, low in carbs and sugars, you cannot go wrong and in fact, it might help. At the very least, you will be healthier. The supplements are not in place of medical intervention, but in addition to. My niece's physician is very much on board.
