: : Hello All,
: : My dayghter is currently suffering from bone cancer. We are doing everything in our power to help her get better, and nothing seems to work. She is currently has done Chemo, and radiation, but nothing is showing us promising results. So I guess what we are asking, if any of you happen to know a doctor, or have heard something that might helps us, we would appreciate it greatly. It doesn't matter what country, or how much it might cost us, We just want to help our little girl! Any information will be helpful to us.
: : Thank you!

: A family member is battling advanced prostate cancer that has spread to the bone. While on enormous levels of oxycontin and morphine for break through pain, he was given 3 months to live.
: After looking for additional treatments, he sought a radiation oncologist to tell him about Quadramet. Quadramet is a radioactive injection that seeks out multiple bone cancer sights and irradiates them. He has survived 6 months now and the quality of life improvement was dramatic. I have heard of similar effectiveness with children. I strongly suggest you seek consultation for this treatment. The first oncologist had not heard of this, we went to a radiation oncologist and he suggested it was worth a try...........my prayers are with you.
THIS MAY SEEM INSENSITIVE, WHAT WHERE THE FIRST TESTS THEY RAN ON YOU ALL BEFORE YOU WERE DIAGNOSED AND WHAT WERE YOUR SYMPTOMS?
WERE ANY OF YOU MISDIAGNOSED IN THE FIRST PART OF THIS AWFUL JOURNEY?
ANY RESPONSE WILL BE VERY MUCH APPRICIATED.
