    I'm sure that for some tumors there are other alternatives. The problem we found is that when you finally find out you have a tumor , because of how fast it grows, you don't have a ton of time to research it.  I think in retrospect, I might have looked harder into immunotherapy and vaccines. I'd have had 2nd opinions with Duke and/or MD Anderson in Houston too. For now we are going to do standard treatment but i...

      He gets TMZ one week per month. He wears Optune everyday, all day ( for the most part except when we have to change the arrays.  So yes, chemo and Optune together. Won't have our first MRI till mid March. Hopefully, it is working well for him.

        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.

              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...
