2016-01-25 14:54

Treatments for cancer have traditionally been surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. However in 1985, hyperthermia therapy, a natural non-invasive treatment which allows the generation of heat to a specific area to kill tumor cells was approved for clinical use. When combined with very low dose radiation, proponents of this non-traditional treatment claim a success rate of 85-92% remission. Hyperthermia is internationally known as the fourth treatment in cancer therapy and while relatively new to the U.S is well known and widely used in other countries like Japan, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, France, Italy, and China.

2015-11-07 09:45

The only thing worse than hearing the word cancer is in reference to a child. A mere 3 months after delivering a seemingly healthy baby girl that they named, Layla, Lisa and Ashleigh Richards got the worst imaginable news. They were told their infant daughter was suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a type of cancer in which the bone marrow makes too many immature lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell (WBC) involved in moderating the immune system. ALL is the most common type of cancer in children and in aggressive forms has about a 1 in 4 survival rate.
