I am a survivor of Grade 4 tumor.

Following the second seizure in the year 2008 the tumor was diagnosed and I have taken Chemo and radition. In addition I have taken Ayurvedic treatment and Allergy Elimination technic as well which controlled the side effects of the chemical and light. But my healing occurred in a healing pryer session. Pray to God as everything possible to God Almighty. This is the second year and I started working now. I wish Brad speedy recovery. I will include Brad in my prayers.

My mom was diagnosed with grade 4 terminal brain cancer. Astrocytoma.  This was last year (2013) in July. She had surgery which removed all they could and then had radiation for 46 days.  She started oral chemo and did this for over 40 days straight then 5 days per month.  Her cancer did stay gone with followup MRI's until this last month. (Sept. 4014) She is 77 years old in otherwise in great health.  Her options this round are minimal. We have started a diet avoiding chemicals, sugar and carbs.  As well as using health food items such as seaweed, mint etc.  You can research "healthy" food items for fighting cancer.  We are also starting cannabis oil treatment which has been proven to stop some cancer growth and even cured many cancers. So far, she has no added symptoms from her brain tumor.  For the most part, she has trouble finding words and some issues reading.  But is doing fabulous.  If we could just get her to stop stressing over everything, I believe we should have her for another year.  The medical profession gave her less than a month since her newest diagnosis, for seeing worsening symptoms and was even talking "hospice".  That was 6 weeks ago and I am happy to report that she is no worse.  YAY and thank God.
