Introduction


The original idea for this website came out of a series of conversations with my son, George, about a year after his diagnosis with osteosarcoma of the mandible. By this point he had been through a number of treatments but the disease was still progressing, but he was pretty healthy and thinking about the future. We had learned a lot about cancer, treatments, and supplements and were still actively looking for new therapeutic options. We felt that we’d learned a lot that might be useful to other patients and their families and friends. A website was the obvious way of sharing this knowledge and we registered the domain name soon after.

George designed the logo and had lots of ideas. He wanted the site to be self-funding and hoped that it would also make money that he could put into his university fund, so he was keen that the site carries adverts. Lots of good ideas but nothing came of it at the time. Now, after his death at the end of April 2011, I am putting the site together to put into practice some of the things we talked about. Any money raised will be distributed to the charities that he supported.

The site will include commentary on cancer research, information on supplements and treatments, diet, details of George’s story, relevant book reviews, links to useful sites and other information that cancer sufferers may find useful.
