Tumor Treating Fields - No Chemo Side Effects
Posted by Emilienne Rebel on
I chatted recently to a customer who is having a new treatment for a brain tumour and I was astonished to hear how good this new treatment is working, its success rate and more importantly with no nasty side effects giving back 'quality of life' to many cancer patients.
He loves his Bold Beanies hair loss hats as they are the most comfortable hat to wear over his patches (with a shaved head) and keep some normality and discretion. I have also hand-made some cord covers to co-ordinate his hats and back pack. Please contact me, Emilienne, directly via firstname.lastname@example.org if you would also like some hats and cord covers.
Although the below link is quite old, TTF is going from strength to strength and starting now to explore treatment of other cancers.
"Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are the best-known methods for treating cancer. At TEDMED, Bill Doyle presents a new approach, called Tumor Treating Fields, which uses electric fields to interrupt cancer cell division. Still in its infancy -- and approved for only certain types of cancer -- the treatment comes with one big benefit: quality of life."
See the TEDMED talks here which explains how the new treatment works.
