Do a search on this site for my posts about 'Lentinan'. This is a Japanese manufactured pharmaceutical grade mushroom extract that has been shown in Japanese studies (not recognized here) to extended the quality and longevity when used in conjunction with Chemo. If you are not using Pubmed in your research yet I recommend it. A search there should turn up some of the Japanese trials.

As in all cases this does not help everyone, is not a panacea, nor is it a cure. We are all waiting for the silver bullet. For me personally I have been on a combination of Xeloda and Lentinan for 8 months now with very positive results at this point. My tumor markers are back to the normal (30's) range and my general health and well being are much improved.
I would also suggest investigating the work being done around the world, Germany is a leader in this case, on therapies that can broadly be described under the umbrella of immunotherapies. Dendritic cell research (search on Geoff and Marions posts), targeted therapies, there can be a long list.
One additional comment. I have been quite conscious of diet and for a couple of years focused on steamed vegetables, juices, organics, no meat etc. While I believe that done well this is healthy for our bodies in my case my significant weight loss was becoming a serious factor and I have modified the diet with an eye towards gaining back weight. So much combines to determine what happens with this disease.
