    I am sorry about your husband. I am not saying everyone will live. My husband went to Duke. He had 3 different biopsies in the beginning. There is no question that it was a GBM. He was 39 when diagnosed, he is 53 now. Nothing will work everytime for every person. But it is an option. 2007-2014 is a lot more than most people get. There is a difference between plant based and vegan. If he was taking fish oil he wasn't ...

      Anti-inflammatory foods are a good idea. I follow people like Dr. Michael Greger, (nutritionfacts.org), Dr. Neal Barnard (pcrm.org/), Dr Caldwell Esselstyn, rawfamily.com, chrisbeatcancer.com. The China Study... There is so much out there. I would always recommend watching The Truth About Cancer. It is a big eye opener for many. Greens, dark leafy greens like spinach, kale, chard... we eat them and we juice them. W...

        I forgot, he also juiced (mainly greens & carrots) for years in the beginning. Now he drinks green smoothies daily but is kind of hit miss on juicing.

          I am sorry about nephew. My husband (and I, because it's forever) shifted to a vegan (plant based diet) no animal products at all. nothing that had a mother. Nothing with a face or anything that comes from something with a face.  While he had what are now standard treatments of chemo and radiation, he opted out of chemo early because at that point we believed that he was cured and it was about diet and lifestyl...

            No. It didn't exist then. My husband hasn't had any cancer treatments since 2004.

              http://www.nbcnews.com/id/24933123/ns/health-cancer/t/kennedy-surgeon-thought-leader-field/#.WS1bjfnyu2w There is a 2008 article about Ted Kennedy being operated and treated at Duke.

                I've posted it before but briefly, vegan diet, very little processed foods, lots of organic raw produce, green smoothies, orginally lots of fresh organic vegetable juice. No animal protein at all. Plant based diet. I would cut out sugar completely. Cancer thrives on it... Ever hear of a PET Scan. they basically inject you with sugar so it will light of the cancer because it goes after it. I am in now way a medical pr...

                  You are welcome to believe it didn't prevent recurrence, that is your right. But there is plenty out there on diet and lifestyle changes (and nothing else) and survival of terminal cancer. I've been playing this game for 14 years. Look outside of the box. You have no proof that it didn't prevent recurrence. He's in the 2% bracket. He's 53 and on no meds and hasn't had any cancer meds or treatments since 2004. Believ...

                    No. He was in a clinical trial which included those drugs and monoclonal (sp)antibody therapy. Ted did the same thing I believe. My husband is in the 2% bracket. Not drugs, faith and food. Look at the stats. It's about diet and lifestyle changes, not drugs. plenty people took the drugs (14) years ago and most of them are dead. He was treated at Duke in NC. So was Ted Kennedy. So were a ton of other people. It became ...

                      If you are questioning what the tumor was, it was glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Yes, it was biopsied in Ohio. Then recected and biopsied again at Duke by Dr. Allan Friedman. No one can convince me that it was about the drugs and "standard" treatment. Look at the stats. I doubt there are any stats on people who used mostly or totally diet and lifestyle changes and I will bet they are out there. I know they are. The F...

                      My husband was diagnosed with a grade 4 (they all are) Glioblastoma in May of 2003. He is an 13+ year survivor. He went to Duke. While we love the caring wonderful doctors & nurses there & looked forward to our check up visits (until we followed our doctor to CT) we know that it was our change in diet that has kept him here. We have watched multiple brain tumor patients die over the past 13+ years and the one thing none of them were willing to do forever... diet and lifestyle. We are convinced that it is our diet and lifestyle that has kept my husband cancer free, illness free and healthy for the past 13 years. It is all about what you put in your body.
