Well, the oncologist told him he'd be on Zalboraf for the rest of his life. So in between treatments might be tough. Acupuncture sounds like a good thing. I love it myself. On top of all of this, my Mom was diagnosed with stage 2 Breast Cancer and is almost finished with her 4th week of radiation. 2 1/2 more to go and then she'll be on arimidex for 5 years. The news about my brother has been really hard on her and my dad but they are staying positive. One piece of good news is that UCLA discovered how the melanoma eventually gets around the zalboraf and comes back stronger, so hopefully they'll have a way to stop that soon. One day at a time...thank you for all your support. It helps! Here's the link for the article. http://newsroom.ucla.edu/portal/ucla/PRN-scientists-uncover-mechanism-for-229980.aspx

I am going to call my brother's Oncologist tomorrow. Someone told me that most oncologists don't want herbs and supplements used in conjunction with chemo drugs because not enough studies have been done. He is day #3 on the zalboraf. He goes back to the radiation doc tomorrow and his oncologist on Monday. He is tired and but he is hanging in there and staying positive. He told me he is taking care of himself and he will get better. I have moments where I feel helpless. But then I tell myself to BELIEVE. This is so damn hard!

Thank Jackie. He started on Zalboraf today which I hope clears things for some time and that soon they'll be some new meds that work better or even a cure! I believe.

Thanks Mike...I'm going to call his oncologist today and ask about the Gamma Knife radiosurgery. I know he had radiation for 2 weeks but not sure what the outcome was.

He started Zalboraf yesterday and I've got my fingers crossed that it works like it is supposed to.

I'm looking at getting him on some Maitake mushrooms, D3 and the Alpha Lipoic Acid.

I've already started taking these supplements as soon as he was diagnosed. With my brother, I have to suggest a little at a time. He will only listen to his oncologist at this point.

Thank you!
