    <font color=blue> As some of you know, my Mom has been recieving chemo in Zion, IL since the first of the year and she just got back yesterday from her latest treatment and the cancer has decreased by 50% since she started there ! It's been very hard on me lately and depression has been high, so getting this news feels real good right now ! I just thought I'd share !

    Good. I hope the rest leaves. My little cousin is 8 or 9 right now and back when she was 3 she got cancer and they did chemo but it didnt work for her. It was pretty grim I mean my aunt and uncle actual went a bought a casket. (maybe I shouldnt say the rest but I will) They got hooked up with a place from holland and got her some well, not legal stuff and it cured her right up. Cost something like $800 for each treatment but it worked and now shes fine! Glad to hear the chemo worked for your mom. Anyway hope everything gets even better for you and your mother and the rest of the family.

    At least your mom has something that is treatable.
    My dad is in stage 4 of Alzhiemers.
    I am glad to hear that your mom is pulling through it.
    I watched both of my Grandmothers die from cancer.
    I do know what it is like to go through it all.
    The good ones die a shitty death and the assholes walk the earth.

    Riz!!!!

    I am 5 min. from that hospital. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help out! My neighbor had treatment there, and for the last 2 years has beat the cancer! I hear they do GREAT things there, and it is one of the BEST places around!
