There probably is no magic answer here, except for all your prayers for my mom and brother that I can get. My brother has been told that the treatments are no longer working (for the third round) and that his recurrent nasopharyngeal tumor has grown much larger than they had thought. The only treatment option a team of doctors have come up with is called Exactrac. It is 6 weeks of re-irradiation to be had along with the never ending chemo. My brother is very adamnent about not wanting to repeat the horrors of his first radiation experiences, nor does he want to spend the likely less than one year he might gain being that sick in front of his two teen children. He has 2 days to give the doctors an answer. It seems he has already made up his mind, and won't accept this treatment...
