            Hello, just a few recommendations, I don't think chemo is the way to go. Unless he really wants to, but organic diet, multivitamins, fish oil and a supplement call, IP6 is what my dad who has liver cancer stage 4 is taking and believe me he has some energy. His numbers have lower. Also he is taking a juice call, mangosteen and helps him with the antioxidants. I don't know if it will work for ur dad, but please try it...

              Does anyone know how can I get a free or low cost PET scan in Houston, TX? My dad has stage 4 liver cancer. He's had MRI, and CTs, but I would love for him to get a PET scan. Doctor said is the better way to see Tumors but low income public health care doesn't provide this service. I have to pay for it, but we got no money to do that. Please help! Nelvi
