Benign Brain Tumour: Please help my sister too
Dear Dr Chris,
I am your patient. I really would like to ask for your kind help to see if you could in any way help my sister to reduce her tumor which is benign. Attached is her medical report. It’s been around 3 years since she found out about it and has been looking for alternative treatment to avoid surgery.
Look forward to your reply. I’ll be coming to see you this Sunday 27th.
