    Does anyone know of an alternative to chemo that has actually been successful? After reading how chemo is destroying my body qnd going through some of the side effects, I'm still not too happy about it and am still going to Moffett for a second opinion next week, but aside from *foods* I'm trying to find other alternatives to support my case. Thank you.

      Hi Maggie,

      The trial is for Ovarian Cancer. I see that you were diagnosed with Breat Cancer. You can look into the Florida Cancer Center and Dr. Silver is wonderful, I have a friend that is going to Moffit in Tampa with Breast Cancer. She is doing wonderful and is very happy with them. Also look in to the Kengen water, I think that it has been a big part of my recovery. I wish you all the best!
      God Bless

      Hi, thank you :-) Very happy with my Doctors. I am being treated in Sarasota, Florida with Dr. Fiorica my Surgery Oncologist and Dr. Silver at Florida Cancer Specialist for Chemotherapy. Dr. Fiorica is doing a trial here at Sarasota Memorial for a Vacine. Well worth looking into.

      Hi! I was in a similar situation. My suggestion to you is this:

      Get all the information you can from as many doctors, websites, books, etc that you possibly can. Then, lay out all your options and seriously consider each one to you, consider your future, and consider how much you want to put yourself through. Talk with your loved ones and then make the decision you are comfortable with. Ultimately, it is your body and your life. The doctors can make recommendations and ultimately there are no guarantees with cancer coming back or not. Do what will bring you the most peace. Best of luck.

      I, too had a lumpectomy with microscopic cells in the sentinel node but it was counted as clear. I had chemo, 4 rounds of AC and 12 rounds of Taxol and Herceptin, weekly. Followed by 7 weeks of radiation and Herceptin for several more months. I think it had to do with being HER2+ and the fact that it is an aggressive type cancer. Chemo wasn't easy, I had many side effects but never threw up. Fatigue was overwhelming. But as others said I needed to know I did everything possible and I know if it returns I can do it again. I am more than 1 1/2 years out from surgery and almost that out from chemo. Life is good! Just remember to "keep your eyes on the prize" life that is. Before you know it you will be on the other side of it.
