Doctors believed Brandon's tumor may have been a neuroblastoma that committed cellular suicide -- an action some cancer treatments try to produce. But because a biopsy was never done, it was also possible that the lump was another type of tumor that regressed, said Dr. Katherine Matthay, a pediatric oncologist at the university.

There are different reasons some patients mysteriously get better. Sometimes, it has to do with the biology of the disease. Other times, a patient may belong to the lucky 1 percent of the population who respond to treatment.

IMO, I think it also helps to be in touch with oneself on all levels in a self appreciative way and be loved by others who care deeply about your well being. Kind of like having that extra indispensable support base that cant be quantified but is equally or more so important as the standard treatment in conquering illness of any kind.
