  • I purchased a herbal medicine for my Brian problem and I received it within 7 days and used it as prescribed, I was totally fine within 3 weeks use, do not loose hope to contact him early If you need help meet him on his email address dr,[email protected] gmail.com

  • I’m BRAF positive clinical trials have really helped. Still stage 4 with tumors in my liver, but not all over any more. Currently taking Zelboraf. Immunotherapy caused auto immune hepatitis so I had to stop but it worked. Still alive after 4.5 years

  • my 34 year old health conscious wife is scheduled to have her final wbrt treatment tomorrow. She’s non responsive and has already been to hospice care. We are supposed to start ipi/ nivo in a few days but if we had started this 3 weeks ago instead perhaps my wife wouldn’t be in the shape she’s in. 2:08 I’m afraid that we’ve “messed up the chance to do that” I feel like I just died inside a little. Only God can help us. I’ve poured myself into the study of oncology since 4 weeks ago when I heard her diagnosis. I’m undone by this video.
