Awesome news! Hopefully the tumors will be small enough to where you can become a surgical candidate. As you said, even if there are tumors in areas where resection is risky, they should be able to use other methods. Definitely look into this if you can.

I think it was a combo 9f chemo plus other things. I switched to a 90% whole food diet. I take cbd oil and thc. I do green juices and alot of viaualization ro my cancer cells being destroyed. Hope the good results keep up
