Cheryl Boyles  tells us her story below. In June 2000 I was 33 years old, working as a wildlife biologist in Oregon, married to a wonderful husband for 10 years, and the mother of two amazing sons that were 1 and 3 years old.  I was loving life; then overnight my life changed.  I began having headaches that felt like my skull was going to explode.  An MRI showed my brain was hemorrhaging.  I went into surgery and an acorn sized grade 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) brain tumor was removed.  I was told I had less than a year to live.I quit my job, and focused on being a mother and fighting brain cancer.  I went through radiation, but chose not to take chemotherapy.  The chemo would only add 3 months to my life, but quality of life would be miserable.

I decided to take more of a natural “alternative” approach, trying to boost my own immune system.  My good cells outnumbered my bad cancer cells! I started eating organic, following a low carbohydrate diet, exercising, simplifying life and nursing a positive attitude, taking acupuncture, many supplements, cannabis, some “off label” prescriptions (like Metformin), and most of all leaning on God for strength which feeds me with hope.

Over the 16 years fighting the terminal brain cancer, I’ve unfortunately was hit with six recurrences. The fact that I have survived is unbelievable.  My doctors even say so.  Most people with the GBM die with their first recurrence, which usually happens within the first few years.  To fight my recurrences, I mostly focused on my alternative actions, but also continued with some of the standard treatments.  I’ve been through six brain craniotomies, 6 week of conformation radiation, over 3 ½ years on the milder chemo called Temodar, and also what is called Gamma Knife radiation.

Taking this approach of combining many alternative and standard treatments, trying to hit the cancer from many angels, has become known at a “cocktail” approach.  It seems to be working for me, not that I’m cured, but I’m still alive and loving life.  Over the sixteen years I’ve had over 100 MRIs, and it’s great to say that my last MRI was clear, no seen GBM.I have become known in the “brain tumor world” as a long term survivor.  Patients and caregivers from around the USA and around the world contact me wanting to know “How do you do it?”  So I’ve put together a web page www.cherylbroyles-gbm.com, wrote a book called Life’s Mountains, and made some videos hoping to reach out and encourage others.

Now my husband and I have been married 26 years, growing stronger together.  My two boys are now 17 and 20 years old, both wanting to become wildlife biologists like mom and dad.   And over the years I’ve been blessed with many things.  Seeing life anew, learning to be content regardless of circumstances, enduring through the challenges, and living life in the moment.

Combining MRI and Mammography Screening May Reduce Breast Cancer Deaths for High Risk Women

Friday, March 5th, 2010

logo1267406_md

A new study in the March issue of Radiology reported that combining mammography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be a cost effective way to reduce the chances of dying for high risk breast cancer women. An increased lifetime risk of developing breast cancer occurs in women with mutations of the BRCA1 gene and using mammography for screening this group (the usual method) detects less than half of the breast cancers.

The researchers compared the cost and benefits of mammography and of MRI’s separately and in combination in a hypothetical group of 25 year old women with BRCA1 mutations. Using a statistical modeling technique to estimate the number of quality adjusted years added by screening and the lifetime costs they concluded that an annual combined screening was best at detecting early stage cancer and at providing the best relative reduction in deaths. Using the combination was most cost effective as the risk of breast cancer increased and least cost effective as it decreased. These findings support the current screening recommendations of the American Cancer Assn.
