    Welcome! Spouse of Stage IV survivor as well. I never thought of the word survivor for them until I was at anderson with him for a trial. They had a banner there that once you are diagnosed and fight, you are a survivor.

      @Banditwalker there is evidence that certain mushrooms (primarily from Asia) are full of medicinal properties. There is Chaga, Turkey Tail w/PSK, lions mane and reishi. Though I did read you should not consume reishi if you are undergoing chemotherapy.

      My physicians at Cancer Treatment Centers of America have me on a mushroom combo that I get through their pharmacy. For breast cancer there is a commercially available blend of herbs, mushrooms & DIM that is called Breast Defend and has gotten excellent results in a number of PubMed reported research results when used in breast cancer patients. Best wishes! Judy in Ky

      Even over the counter supermarket white mushrooms have some value. The other varieties above have more beta glucan (active anti cancer compound) but white button mushrooms have some. You can even buy beta glucan supplements (most mushroom based). Check amazon. Other dietary sources for same compound as well.

      @Team_Jason. Have you looked into raw & living foods?

      It is a methodology which forsakes all animal contributions to food. Sprouts become as meat. Beans & seed are germinated prior to being ingested. Clever blending and plating make strange foods and odd combinations of familiar food seem much like the foods to which most folks are used.

      Carrot can be made to taste like salmon and sprouts can be made to taste like chicken and seed can be arranged to look like scrambled eggs, for example.

      The methodology is meant to shrink tumors by strengthening the immune system.

      Please also look into chaga mushroom extract, into black seed oil, into graviola and soursop protocols and everything else you can find that can help but not hurt Jason.

      You never know but that some odd combinations may enhance what the docs are trying to do which is to save Jason's life.

      Best wishes for your team to succeed.

      Hello everyone! I wanted to give an update:

      My husband’s severe right flank pain was caused by dehydration and SEVERE constipation. Once all of it passed (after a lot of solutions) the pain subsided. He had to do morphine for 3 days because it was so bad. I can’t believe it was something so “simple”. His doctor reviewed his last scan from when he was in his clinical trial and the cancer had not progressed at all!! I guess some of the natural stuff we are doing is working!

      Must almost force oneself to keep up with fluid intake, beyond signaling from thirst. Most chemotherapy has dehydration as side effect. I had to be hospitalized from same from chemotherapy that went overboard and gave me unrelenting diarrhea
