    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    My friend's dad has recently been diagnosed with colon cancer. I believe it might also have spread outside the colon, but I'm not sure.
    I don't know what stage or all the facts, but I do know that he has one year left and that he's been told if he started treatment it would only accelerate his death.
    I don't know what treatment was offered but I'm assuming it's what is the normal procedure for colon cancer.
    Does anyone know of any experimental treatments/drugs/etc. out there that might slip past a doctor's mind because it's not widely used or known about?

    Look at MD Anderson web page. They are a cancer hospital and they are the best. Friend's Dad's doctor can check with MD Anderson to see what the latest treatment is.

    There is an alternative cancer clinic in Tijuana Mexico called the Biomedical Center. They give herbs and recommend an all natural diet. I've told a lot of people about it, but not many people are willing to go on the diet. When there is no hope left, what does one have to lose by trying something different? Just my thoughts......
