You may want to research some alternative approaches. The best sites I've come across are: http://www.denvernaturopathic.com/news.html

which is operated by Dr. Jacob Schor a compasionate and knowledgeable naturopath who specializes in cancer. (see contacts to email him). 

Margaret's Corner is another site with a great deal of well researched informaion on supplements. Although it is focused on MM, most of the information is relevant to any cancer. Look down the right column starting with "my discovery of curcumin".

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

While I dislike Lance Armstrong, I would contact LiveStrong to see if they have info. His disease was very advanced, yet after treatment he went on to win several Tours de France (albeit with the help of Erythropoeitin!). Also Cancer Treatment Centers of AMerica offer comprehensive treatment for advance stage cancers. ALso, please do not take this as cruel advice, but contact Hospice. THeir services are even more beneficial for the family, esp the children, so don't wait too long. Many Oncologists are afraid to mention the word "hospice". If your husband is still seeking aggressive treatment (like chemo) ask for a palliative care consult where they specialize in treating the whole patient and family, but he can still pursue aggressive therapy.

I had testicular cancer and a tumer around my vena cava. My wife was told I wouldn't make it off the operating table. That was in 83. I will pray for him. As long as he can fight he has a chance. Stay well hydrated when on the chemo as it will damage the kidneys. I don't know if you are religious however God gave me the strength to keep going. If the chemotherapy makes him sick - he may want to ask for THC pills for nausea.
