Treatment options

Cancer is the most curable of all chronic diseases!
There is no type of cancer for which there is no treatment!
There is no cancer from which someone has not been cured!

But…cancer is an extremely complex disease. There are several hundred different kinds of cancer. Each one is treated in its own particular way by one or a combination of at least eight separate types of therapy. Cancer grows geometrically. It must be treated promptly, properly and thoroughly. There is generally only one chance to beat cancer, so it better be done right the first time.

The National Cancer Institute has developed a program called PDQ with the latest and best treatment for every type of cancer. It is absolutely free. It is updated every month. There is no excuse for not knowing the best option for successfully treating your type of cancer. If you are not receiving the recommended treatment, show it to your physician and ask why.

Furthermore, you can find all the current open experimental treatments everywhere for your type of cancer just in case the state-of-the-art therapy does not succeed for you. These are treatments that work in theory for your type of cancer, have shown success with animals and are now being tried on people. Each one of these offers you a chance of success if the state-of-the-art therapy fails. Know your options.

    My 79 year old father was been diagnosed with stage 4 adenocarcenoma lung cancer. No major tumors, but it seem to scatter quickly. He has COPD from smoking since the age of 19. He has been smoke free for 15 years. They are keeping radiation on the back burning for now and we are waiting for the results of receptors for treatment plan. In short, wanting to know recommendation for this stage of cancer and if there are any clinical trials or new medicine options on the market. They don’t believe his lungs can handle full blown chemo.

    Thank you!

      Our recommendation is check with the National Cancer Institute’s website http://www.cancer.gov. and click on Clinical Trials. Their forms allow you to place your information and determine how far you are willing to travel for treatments. You may also call them at 1-800-4-CANCER (1-800-422-237) and speak with one of their cancer information specialists. Another alternative for seeking second opinions is Cure Launcher. Cure Launcher matches people diagnosed with cancer with available clinical trials. http://www.curelauncher.com. Their services are free. You give them your information and they will start working on matching you with a clinical trial. 800-488-6632. We hope for the best for you and your dad.
