    External radiation


    My brother has made it this far because of his positive fighting attitude and not willing to give up, and most of all because of his faith in God and many many prayers from so many people. His new word that he came up with is: "positude" for always having a positive attitude about what he is going through.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    After his first chemo treatment, slept all day the first day, the next morning he had a massive seizure which put him in the hospital. He came out of it that night and thanks God he came back to us.
