Interesting Article Re Our Immune Systems

Just found this article and it is rather interesting for anyone about to undergo or currently having chemo especially in regard to the last paragraph re tumours. Any thoughts?:

What All People With A Brain Tumour Want Known

Came across this article recently and thought I'd share because I am sure we can all relate to many of the comments: It's called "Lost & Found: What Brain Injury Survivors Want You to Know":

Sight Saved!

A Dad'd sight has been saved after surgeons remove a tumor through his nose.
Gross thought I know but I remember reading that Russell Watson had one of his tumors removed via his nose also. Seems to be so much less intrusive and it would appear that the recovery time is certainly reduced.

Nice to read of a successful outcome but also comes with a warning! Don't put off a visit to the doctor if you are suffering continual headaches, especially if these are accommpanied by vision problems.

Take a look at this article on the following link:
