I believe in them Mcostello.....my daughter is an athlete.   She trained 4 hours a day, 6 days a week, and we had no notice what so ever.....until one day over the period of 3 hours the lymph node in her neck went from normal  to the size of a computer mouse!.....That was the trigger to get checked out.   When I described that to a doctor, he said that was EXTREMELY unusual....personally, I think a guardian angel did that....to get our attention........

Just got your PM and it stunned me.  My family and I send you and your daughter our most sincere wishes for a speedy and complete recovery.  Try to stay positive.  Attitude is as important as treatments.  Tell Ava she has a lot of old guys pulling for her.

My thoughts are with you, your family and esp. your daughter. Cancer is a scary thing, but can be beaten.

Positive attitude and diet can be very helpful. I am a prostate cancer survivor from 2012, family support and removing negativity helped a lot.

Consider getting a copy of http://www.amazon.com/Essential-Cancer-Treatment-Nutrition-Cookbook/dp/0778802981 It helped me while undergoing radiation therapy. Still make recipes from the book now :-)

Dave;
Sorry to hear this news and I wish her and your family a quick recovery. What you have working for you is that there's not much on this earth tougher and more adaptable than a child. She has the strength - it's up to you to find the courage to get thru each day and support her. And I know you do!
Best wishes and keep us posted on her recovery.

Captain,  the waters will be rough and the storm fierce,  however,  steer staight into it and give it full steam,  there's enough of us here to fire the boiler  ;). I wholeheartedly agree with Gerrit,  get the book or one like it, the body and nature are two powerful forces,  even the Docs will agree.  Holler if'n you needs anything .
