Michael i wanna say first that myes, i use fda approved cancer treatments( as you know by now,not only are you limited to these treatments as the"only" thing you can legally do in the USA( chemo,radiation,and immunotherapy) your oncologist cannot even TALK about alternative cures or treatments( my oncologist said he would lose his right to practice medicine) but i had 17 "spots" which were deemed to be tumors show up in both my lungs 4 years ago. There was nothing they could do at that time. I looked into various "alternatives to the big 3" and i hope you,ll do the same...i read about vitamin b17,laetrile,amygdylin,....alll three of these are the active ingredient in apricot seeds(kernels) ...i did my research and you have to get the "bitter" unprocessed(cooked) seeds...i bought and ate these for about a month when those tumors popped up 4 years ago...at my next ct scan( i had no treatments whatsoever except eating these seeds which aren't the best tasting BUT that is of little consequence...on my next ct scan not one of those 17 were in my lungs at that time...my oncolgist shook his head and sid i don,y wanna know what you did but don,t stop... My mistake was i quit eating the seeds at that point because I thought i was "cured" and of course,recently a larger tumor is now in my lung and i,m just starting back taking the seeds( i am gonna continue the immunotherapy( nivumolab) that i have been on for two years with no new tumors dhowing up. Do what you think is best for you but( ive got a feeling youre up to speed on the limitations of what doctors "can" do in the. USA but do yourself a service and at least explore other alternatives ( of course there are scammers out there preying on our situation) but there are some things that there is firm,clinical, information that cancer can be fought with other things...please look into apricot seeds...the fda uses" there is trace amounts of naturally occuring cyanide in apricot kernels...true...and it might be somewhat harmful if you eat ,say, 50 a day. But i can promise you that cancer WILL kill you for sure while apricot kernels" might" be somewhat harmful... Your choice but not a hard one for me,what have you got to lose buddy.

Very sad to hear this. Every one on here can speak of the power of positive thinking in regards to pool, and I believe it can help in these situations as well. Stay positive and try and keep your routine as much as you can . STAY STRONG AND KICK IT'S ASS. Prayers sent.

Michael,

The doctors at Mayo told me I only had a month at best.
That was 3 years ago.
Donít give up.
Look at other treatment options.
Try other Cancer centers.
I left Mayo and went to UNM.
They saved me.
Donít give up!

Prayers for you Michael.
My best friend was told he might not make it through surgery.
That was more than 10 years ago.
He's still with us.

This is true about the apricot seeds. My brother told me about them a couple years ago. My brother had cancer, went through treatment, and completely changed his lifestyle, to include what he eats.

He does eat those apricot seeds. He also eats a lot of raw vegetables, cooked fresh vegetables, True Roots sprouted rice, sprouted bread, and steel-cut oatmeal, just as a few examples. He does eat fish and eggs and chicken, but he rarely eats red meat, maybe twice a year.

When he goes to the doctor today and they give him his examination with lab tests, the doctors are amazed at how healthy he is.

A couple years ago, we had a power outage in the winter, and so we had to rent a suite at the Marriott that had a kitchen in it. My daughter and I went to the grocery store to get some staples. There was this man standing in line behind us, and he put his food items on the belt behind ours. They were all fresh veggies like broccoli, green beans, kale, lettuce, carrots, celery, et cetera. I said to him, "Wow! You eat so healthy," and then he told me his story.

He had terminal cancer, and he went to several cancer specialists around the country: California, Minnesota, and New York. They all told him that his cancer was too far advanced and there was not much they could do for him except to make him comfortable. He then was told about some guy in Florida who helped terminal cancer patients. He figured he had nothing to lose, so he flew down there.

The doctor told him he must eat a lot of raw, crunchy green vegetables and stay away from processed foods, nothing out of a can or box. So he did this for several months, and today he is cancer-free. He said he will continue to eat raw, crunchy vegetables forever. To him, this was a miracle.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that where there's a will, there is a way. Don't give up and keep trying everything you can, to include the apricot seeds. Start crunching on those veggies too. You can do this!
