Dear Professor Chris,
I’m writing to you regarding my father who is unable to articulate in English to enquire about your healing herbs that could possibly lighten his pain or increase his life expectancy.
My father is 53 and was diagnosed with stage 4 NPC May 2015. He was asked to go through 6 sessions of Chemotherapy and 33 sessions of Radiotherapy which he complied and was making recovery.
December 2015 he went for a scan and there the results was Liver Metastasis although his nose and lymph nodes were cleared.
We turned to Chinese medication for treatment in hopes for containing and maintaining his body and a longer life expectancy as he could not go for another round of chemo and radio session. Late February he went for a test again and the mass in his liver had grown. I’ve attached a photo of his latest CT scan.
I seek your advice and if CA therapy can help him. I really do not want him to give up any chances that could improve his life expectancy. Of late, he’s having pains within his stomach area (no visible swollen area noticed), the pain area moves around so I am not sure which portion is painful to him.
Thank you very much, for taking time to read and reply. I appreciate it. Best Regards.
