Re: Decided on NO chemo, any suggestions

You might want to check out the book Beating Cancer with Nutrition by Patrick Quillin.He was the director of nutrition for Cancer Centers of America for 10 yrs . When my mom was diagnosed with NSCLC stage IV we tried to find info like you are looking for and it was very difficult, alot of sights do not seem to allow certain things to be mentioned. My mom did opt for chemo and lived 2.5 yrs .She decided to quit chemo afraid it was killling her faster then the cancer and she may have been right as the hospice doctor felt she had months left yet she only lasted about 6 weeks and died from what we think was a pulmonary embolism caused by inactivity due to the chemo. Best of luck to you and do stop by and let us know how you are doing. I will add you to my prayers as I really do believe they help. Blessyou, JanMarie
