Primary brain tumor, high grade glioma, stage 3 or 4

My husband has just been diagnosed with a high grade glioma in the right frontal lobe of his brain. They don't have a final path report as of today but I am told by the surgeon it is stage 3 or 4.  Chemo/radiation path does not offer much of a solution and certainly no cure.  We would like to consider Hoxsey clinic in Mexico however, I am not certain if they treat this type of cancer.  Does anyone know of anyone going to Hoxsey for this type of cancer and what their experience was?

Not sure if Hoxsey would be the treatment of choice. Many clinics in Mexico and have not had much experience with glioblastoma coming out with good results. Most of the treatments don't get to the brain to do much good. I do know of a few that have done the treatment by Cytoluminator and does glioblastoma in kids. You can google them, on their page there is a direct link to brain cancer. 
After is treated, if you want to get hold of me through Jesicha's Hope I can guide through after care. This is my research in rebuidling the body. Hope this info helps.

Thanks, I did review some information on Hoxsey after I posted this and found that they don't list as helping much for brain glioma. Currently looking at Optune...still working on that.I'll take your suggestions and check it out.  God bless.

Hello Nitro18,

I am also researching information (alternative treatment) on glioma, please share what you have found.  Many thanks!

Seems like Calcium bentonite clay is one of the solutions.

What about immune and targeted therapies ? While also pursuing alternative treatment is a valid option, only pursuing such is not something that resonates with me.

When I looked into it , I found that they treated many cancers but could not find gliomas among the items listed. I did not speak with anyone directly however.

For possible targeted therapies currently in clinical trials, see:

My husband is currently useing Optune.  There are some good facebook groups for GBM. " Survival Guide to GBM" is my favorite and the folks that administer the site provide a lot of research info.

Alongside TMZ or just Optune ? 

How are the tumor(s) responding ?
