Do you think you could explain in more detail your experience. I ask because my dad was diagnosed with a rare form of melanoma called desmal plastic, eight years ago. He actually went into remission with an oral chemo called Timadar. Three weeks after that he developed another cancer call Merkel Cell which is another deadly and extremely aggressive and fast growning skin cancer. Regular IV chemo did nothing. He will be starting a clinicl trial that might hold it at bay but there are no promises since this is a rare form of cancer.

We have been praying like crazy for a miracle. If this trial doesn’t work, I hope that there may be another one for him to try.

He is wary about the vitamin regimine because he only wants to take exactly what his doctors say are okay for hin to take.

Understandable but also potentially dangerous, depending on how open his doc is to complementary therapies.
