I am happy to report that my new oncologist agrees that the tumors I have are so slow-growing that there is no danger in my doing something experimental for 6 months, outside of Western medicine. She even offered to monitor me with monthly blood tests, including tumor markers.

All of my previous doctors have said that they didn’t think there were any reliable tumor markers for breast cancer. My new doc said once breast cancer is metastatic, tumor markers are pretty reliable. I’m thrilled to have an oncologist that clearly keeps up with the research and gives me new information.

After blood tests tomorrow to give us a baseline, I’m excited to start on the “aggressive” program with Dr. Lise Alschuler, ND.
