Needed context absent from release on “less toxic way to treat brain tumors”
Al Musella's Comments: (This is his personal views and are not necessarily the views of the Musella Foundation!)
This brings up a very important point. Every day we see an article claiming a breakthrough. Us old pros know it is just hyperbole - not really meant to be taken literally. They are just trying to get their treatment noticed and if they told the truth in the headline, nobody would look at it. But for the new people here, who are desperately looking for anything to help their loved one with a brain tumor, it is very dangerous.
The website noted below digs into these stories and exposes the truth. I like to think that is what we do here also with these editorials about the articles. It gives perspective. Same with our online support groups: https://virtualtrials.com/lists.cfm If you find something online that looks interesting for brain tumor patients, share it with one of the online groups.
