OMG, Marion. This article suggests exactly what Teddy's Radman said to us 3 weeks ago when I asked him how 2 tumors can be shrinking. He said, "Ask Dr. Cavalcant (ONC) about hormones!!!

Re: New York Times Article Cancers vanish without treatment, but how?

I have often thought about this. It seems so obvious from all the variation in people's experiences on these boards that each patient's tumors are different. I really think we need research into these differences. Why do some cc tumors grow very slowly or even shrink on their own? Knowing this would be SO useful in developing more effective medical treatments.

Peace, hope, and healing to all!

Exactly!  Teddy is extremely tired all the time and he is even getting B12 shots.
I am thinking it is his "hormones/system" fighting and winning! We will take it.
We go to the ONC Friday so it should be an interesting conversation.
