My mom has just started treatment, low dose oral Kemo and radiation (3D modeled low dose) on a stage 4 glial blastoma.

Prayers out for your family.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

My prayers are with you. My mom developed lung cancer at age 67. At one time was given very little time to live. Her will to fight and live, coupled with good medical care, family support, and prayer got her through for 8 more years.

Velvet Antler.

Velvet Antler is a product I highly recommend to all chemo recipients.
When I as on chemo I went immunosuppressed on the 2nd visit. I researched ways to increased my immune system and found this stuff in many reports.. I oedered some and from that time on I have never been suppressed again.
It's made from the felt from the Antlers of the red Elk of New Zealalnd. At about 45 dollars a bottle it is well worth the price to by that enhanced. I have been through Chemo twice and hey used 2.5 times the amount of the first and an additional chemo and I still waqsa not suppressed. I recommend 6 capsules a day while on chemo and about 3 or 4 when off chemo. TRUTH, Blitzzz (survivor)

The Brand is NATRAflex "Velvet Antler"
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

Sten, Im sorry to hear your mother has this type of cancer. My mother developed Glioblastoma multiforme when she was about 46. One of the things my mom loved to do, and it was completely foreign to her, was Tai Chi. After the surgeries that she had to go through, these exercises gave her more control and gave her some peace. My prayers go out to you.
