I have been studying an item called MMS or Miracle Mineral Supplement. It is very popular in the South America countries and has been praised for curing many people from cancer. I would recommend keeping an open mind to new cancer cures - use your time to study all avaiable cures. By the way there is a cancer doctor in southwest Florida (Naples I believe) that has found an / old / new procedure that uses radio waves - yes radio waves to distroy cancer cells. This new procedure is not new and was succussful years and years ago. It never made the light of day to the public. Like I said - keep an open mind - hopefully you won't need any of these new procedures. God bless your son and your family - my thoughts and prays are with you.

I am deeply sorry for your son's illness. I know that parents would rather have things happen to them rather than their children. When a child has a serious illness, it is a very difficult thing for everyone... Doctors and nurses included.
My speciality isn't in pediatric oncology.... but I did find a bit of information from the "medical side" of things.
Survival rates for this terrible form of cancer are quite good if caught early. Many people have posted some good information here. I am all for natural therapies, as long as they don't interfer with the conventional chemo treatments. The one thing that I can add with respect to the organic fruits and vegetables is this: Make sure that you wash the produce well before serving it to your little guy. You should also exercise caution when the nadir portion of the chemo treatment occurs. His immune system will be weakened at this point. It typically occurs 14-21 days after chemo treatments (but this varies depending on the type of Chemo, the dosage, and the schedule). Your doctor will have more information on it.
Best of luck to you. We are all thinking positive thoughts to you and your son.

From experience I would suggest the following,
Keep emotion separate from medicine/medical treatment and decisions.
Do not allow yourself to be rushed into making decisions.
Consult with as many different Dr.s as possible. Be aware that many Dr.s are loyal to there particular discipline.
Be open to a multi treatment approach nutritional, conventional etc. It does not have to be one or the other.
You do not owe any Dr. your loyalty. The Dr.s you employ are tools to be used to better the health of your child. If you are not happy with any Dr. do not hesitate to find another. You are paying them.
Research everything from treatment options to which Dr.s stand out as premier leaders in there field.
Find your child a strong patient advocate, this could be mom or dad or someone else.
The patient advocate must not be a "head nodder" and will never say "you are the Dr. you know best" but rather question the Dr. and care nurses on everything and make them explain every move they make in detail. (polite but firm) In the case of a hospital stay making friends with the nurses is of great value.
This advocate should be willing to attend every appointment and every treatment your child has as well as "live" at the hospital and document everything, the when, what and why of every diagnosis, proposed treatment, treatment, Rx etc.
Request every scan, X-ray, MRI, CT scan be copied onto a disc for your records.
In the case of chemo therapy there may be a variety of different therapies given to determine the most effective. The advocate should document each therapy and the side effects and effectiveness associated with each therapy.
In short, the advocate should be your "case expert" and will become a valuable resource for the many Dr.s and nurses that care for your child.
The most important advice I can give you is to stay strong and have faith, pray, You will find God will deliver the right people to you at the right time.
You are in my prayers, God bless

Sorry to hear about the boy.
I'll post some links for you that i've found on this site, and some info i've read about elsewhere.
im not sure of the mix ratio but if ou read the full article it will tell you...
it's something like:
1/4 bi carbonate of soda
3/4 maple syrup
put in fry pan, heat it up and mix together and stir for 5 minutes. Apparently this will bind the two together.
take two table spoons per day for 1 week, then take 1 table spoon for one week. Apparently because cancer cells absorb 15 times the amount of glucose (sugar) as a normal cell, the sugary maple syrup binded witht he bi-carb of soda goes like this. cell eats the glucose but because its binded with bi-carb, the sudden change in the PH level of the cell will kill it.
I've also heard this is the same treatment someone ele has said. Treat it like a fungus... use bi-carbonate of soda....
"The Remedy - Maple Syrup and Baking Powder (Bicarbonate of soda)
Mix 1 part baking soda to 3 parts maple syrup
Heat rigorously in a pan for 5 minutes
Take two teaspoons of the mixture per day for the first week and then one teaspoon per day for weeks two and three - the remedy should not be continued after three weeks
and heres a direct link to the article
Heres another one about the same thing from another website called nexusmagazine. i tried the link to the nexuswebsite page but it seems to have disappeared... but it still has some info in the link provided below
Heres another cancer treatment link
ad another one....
this they reckon is 100% effective
Also i've read another thing in a nexus magazine where some dude had cancer and got rid of it using alot of selenium (which is large doses can be bad for you btw). Selenium is a very very good anti-oxidant and has strong anti-cancer properties.
Also i'm pretty sure there was a thread about vitamin d-12, or someting like that.. it contains great anti-cancer properties. i think you can get taht from eating apricot kernels i think it was. Actually i read in a magazine a few days ago called HARDEVIDENCE, that one of the best anti-cancer things is like vitamin D and plenty of sunlight so it gets converted properly or something.
I'd recommend buying this magazine called hard-evidence... it had a black cover on it, saying blah blah blah obama - a conspiracy magazine btw. But at the ack of it it had heaps of things in there about anti-cancer properties and which vitamins and minerals to take.... and it had statisticas about how good they are at fighting and reducing cancer....
Seriously give it a go.Is there anything to stop you trying some of these? Is maple sugar and bicarb going to hurt your child? Are vitamins and a bit of sunshine going to hurt? or eating some kernels? Keep researching on this website as there have been many anti-cancer threads made all providing good information....

Very Sorry to read about your little Guy.
Luteolin is a flavenoid contained within Chrysanthemum tea. It has been found to bind cancer cells together. It does NOT cure cancer, but does force Cancer cells to group and therefore make treatment more efficient and requiring less Chemo or cobalt knife or whatever the treatment may be.
Please consult your doctor, but it is being used at the Cleveland clinic which is a highly respectable health care system in the USA as well as India , China and Europe.

It must be heartbreaking to hear a diagnosis like that.
I'll be thinking of you and your son, along with everyone else who reads this thread I'm sure. There's lots of good advice here already, I just want to repeat one piece from Anonymous ATS:
Get yourself a psychologist (or any other therapist/clergyperson/etcetera). There will be loads of people watching out for your son – all of their advice will filter through you – and somehow you have to hold yourself together and not let the disease eat you. Take care of yourself whenever and however you can.
