my wife has 4th stage lung cancer

Recommended Posts

My wife has 4th stage lung cancer in remission after 6 rounds of chemo. We just got back from MD Anderson in Houston and after our Dr. told us to go out there for a second opinion and to see if they would do surgery. We were told that surgery was out of the question and to go home and take a aspirin every day and to come back when she gets sick again?? We are looking for a clinical trial. She is in excellent health at the present time and feels great except for the depression. Has anyone ever heard of Cassie Tea? Russell

Hi Russell,

I think you may mean Essiac Tea. I really don't know much about it, but have heard of people doing very well on it for all sorts of heath problems.

It's available in some department stores and in most health food stores - at least in Canada it is.

There's quite alot of info on the internet about it, so you may want to do a search on it.

Hope your wife continues to do well.

Kathleen

Guess there is such a thing as Cassie tea - but I think it may be the American version of Essiac Tea, as the ingredients look to be the same.

Hopefully, you will be able to find Cassie Tea more readily in the US.

If I remember correctly the nurses name that came up with the "Essiac Tea" was Rene Caisse. I do take the tea myself & like you said the ingredients are all pretty much the same. Personally I think the stuff is great, but everyone has their own opinion, some people don't care for the taste.

I was have been reading a lot about copper reduction therapy, and know there are a few clinical trials going on right now for that. It is suppose to have very positive results for sustained remission, and also for suppressing metasis. It inhibits the creation of new blood vessels that feel tumor cells.

I've been keeping it in mind to ask my onc about it once Keith is in remission. I would also look around some past postings, because I know I've seen other postings on this site about clinical trials and alternative therapies that have shown good results with prolonging remission.

I wish you continued success and good health. I'll be praying for you.

You can also contact the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer center at 1-800-865-1125 Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.ET to have them help locate a physician near you who is willing to prescribe Tetrathiomolybdate the drug is also known as TM. It is a very promising drug that actually inhibits at least 4 major growth factors(through your low copper levels) where Iressa is blocking 1. TM is entering Phase III trials at the end of this year and they are looking for FDA approval to be within the next 2 to 3 years.

Thanks for all the information. This has been such a hard time for the both of us but it is great to have found this site and all you wonderful people. We went to the Doctor yesterday and he wants Alice to go on a combination of iressa and celerbrex. We must make a decision soon. Russell & Alice
