I'm glad it's all looking good for your mom now PixieGoth.
September is National Ovarian Cancer Month, Childhood Cancer Month, and Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month.http://www.acscsn.org/
It's an American site, and I admit to knowing SFA about ovarian cancer, but maybe there's something useful. It also has a forum, which I think somebody mentioned looking for earlier in this thread.
I just want to say something about the "alternative" therapies.
The health practitioners within this range of therapies prefer to call themselves "complementary" therapists. You can have conventional AND complementary treatments simultaneously, provided you tell all health practitioners what the other is doing, and to what end. And there are also a few complementary therapies where you don't have to take any medication, so it won't even have a chance of interfering with your conventional medicines; I'm thinking of Reiki, Spiritual healing, Acupuncture, Acupressure, Shiatsu and many others. Many of which get dismissed as mumbo jumbo, but have actually been scientifically proven. http://www.parama.com/
is run by two scientists who decided to proveor disprove many such therapies.
I had ME in my teens and no conventional doctors could help me. They could relieve some of the symptoms, but couldn't actually solve it. Just stuck me on anti depressents and epilepsy medication (long story - don't ask). I then got treated with Reiki, which is a hands-on healing type of therapy. You just lie there for an hour every week and the practitioner does the rest. The difference was instant. I realise ME and cancer are nowhere near the same, but I just thought I'd share this to illustrate what I meant. Main point being these complementary therapies are designed to work alongside conventional medicine, not as an alternative.
