This review is from: Surviving "Terminal" Cancer: Clinical Trials, Drug Cocktails, and Other Treatments Your Oncologist Won't Tell You About (Paperback)
When a family member was diagnosed with a grade 4 glioblastoma, it can only be described as a tragedy. This book is informative, to the point and written by one of the few people who has survived this disease long term. One of the first things any new patient will discover is how dismal the prospects of survival are. Most die within a year, however, do NOT lose heart. Read this book and also inform yourself on the use of phenylbutyrate or valproic acid as these have also resulted in the long term survival of one woman in her 40s. The controversial Dr. Burzynski and his clinic are very expensive but it seems what they may be using is a form of phenylbutyrate, which can be purchased commercially in the UK by a Swedish firm called SOBI. In any event, the information written in Williams' book is valuable in the extreme also because of his mindset and the fact that by use of his amazing mind, which I could relate to being an engineer, simply goes about trying to find solutions and in doing so also exposes that the "statistics" are NOT the whole story. There are plenty of things you can do and Williams looked at most of them. Reading this should also give you a better understanding of certain flaws within the established scientific paradigm and the need for extreme cases such as glioblastoma to delve into the far ends of the spectrum and push the envelope. Truly, if you are buying this book, I know why you are doing so, and my love and prayers are with you and your loved ones. Death comes to us all in the end, but while there is breath, there is hope too. This book is more than just hope, it is a guidebook to a lot of steps towards finding a way out of that darkness and beating this disease. It will save you immense time too, a very precious commodity for sufferers and their families, by summarising a lot of things. He also has a website that he updates regularly so please look at that too. The section there on natural foods and supplements alone is worth printing and using to stock up on any food that has been medically proven to some extent or other to make a difference.
