until all this new stuff comes on line seems high dose Vit. C sensitizes cancer to radiation;

type (colon;lung;brain;skin)is different and each colon cancer is different, what works for a specific type of brain cancer may not work for colorectal and if its does work for the latter,more than likely it won't work for every type of colorectal cancer. This is true of everything tried for colorectal cancer, be it oxi,avastin,erbitux,etc and undoubtedly in every type of cancer....

(there are also many different types of primary brain tumour)

and clinical trials will be 5+ years away, still as high dose Vit C is pretty harmless why not try? IMHO

If my son needs RT again for sure he will have HD Vit C first.

I'm sitting in Dr. Yamada's waiting room right now waiting to see him about getting rid of the final spot that I have which is located in a lymph node...

Hopefully, info on a plan to follow

I have no delusions that I'll be NED, cured, disease-free etc. I'd love a break if I can get it. If not, it's still manageable...
