    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...

        Wini, I think you tried to send a private message. When I opened it, I got an error. I'll try to send a message to CancerCompass so they can fix it.

          I have a strong faith in God too. I gave all of this to Him and He has helped me so much. I wouldn't have been able to get through this without Him. He gave me the signs to eat this way. I'm not telling you what to do. I'm telling you what worked for me and others I researched online. Most cancer survivors ate like I eat, had a strong faith in God & believed He (and his food/water/sun/fresh air) would heal them,...

            I'm so happy you have a positive attitude! You have to believe that what you are doing is going to work! What you choose to do is your decision. If you decide to fight it with food, it will be hard if your family/friends and doctor are all trying to talk you into doing radiation/chemo. Try not to let them get you down or stressed. Stress will lower your immune system. Show them all of the information you fi...

              Hi Wini! I'm sorry your tumor has spread, but I'm excited that you decided not to do radiotherapy and are going to change your diet instead! 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.

                Should have asked how you use the oils for his migraines. Rub it on temples, diffuse it, ingest it?

                  Thanks for all of the information! What oils do you use for migraines?

                    Is DoTerra as good as Young Living? Those are the two brands that I heard are the best. How are you using the oil for the benign lump? Are you putting it on topically or ingesting it? How long did it take to shrink it? What type of cancer do your sister and mom have? How are they using Frankincense? Is it working for them? My husband and daughter get migraines. Have you used any oils for migraines or bad headaches...

                      Thanks! Did you try it? What brand did you use? How did you take it and how much did you take?

                      Patient
                      Brain Cancer

                      I was diagnosed with a grade 2 oligodendroglioma in August 2008. It was the size of a softball. I had surgery, but it was a partial resection. I switched to Cleveland Clinic and had MRIs every 3 months. It grew slowly so I had another surgery in July 2009. It was a partial resection because there was some functional brain in the middle of the tumor. 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. I had no side effects from the temodar, but did have some hair loss from the radiation. Stable MRIs until May 2011 when it showed the cancer was growing slowly again and there was a spot of fast growing tumor cells. God gave me lots of signs to eat a vegan diet. I started eating a whole food, plant based diet in early June. The MRI 3 months later showed no growth and no enhanced spot! All MRIs through October 2015 have shown no growth or enhancement! :)
