      Hello, I am the caregiver for my lovely wife who was diagnosed with 4th Stage nsclc in Oct 2010.  Won't bore you with all the details of her experiences but she has found that when a breakout (a pimple like thing) she put frankinscence oil and while the bump doesn't necessary goes away, it stop the pain and the fever.  If you use pure oil, then you can even take internally - like in the mouth or other sens...

        Hi, My wife has been using Tarceva for over 7 months and at our last PET scan, it appeared that the tumor is slowing down in its shrinkage.  Looking to see if anyone has developed resistance to Tarceva and what did you do about it.  I recently read that there are two key reasons for the resistance.  One is another mutant called T790M and the other is a MET inhibitor.  Good discussion of these can...

          Greetings, I am the caregiver for my wife who was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer last October.  Thank God, she was tested and proved positive for the EGFR mutant and has been taking Tarceva since Dec 22, 2010.  The results have been really good as she has changed her eating habits, and taking all sort of other supplements from the naturopathic doctor.  Also part of her treatment was to have the G...

          My wife was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer in Oct 2010. I do all the research since sometimes the news is too hard to digest. We have completely changed our lives since the event, eating organic foods, taking supplements like essential oils, less red meat and more cancer fighting foods. Ensuring my lovely bride has quality of live is my passion and we will endure to the end.
          Update 2013, wife still looks great, people don't believe she is sick. Last PET scan in Dec 2012, showed no metabolic activity and recent brain scan Jan 2013, showed nothing.
