genetics is what I remember my vet saying as well. Rocky was 1 year old.

Hopefully the power of prayer will bring you all more than 6 weeks.

Just follow your instincts and your heart....................

Thanks everyone...

We had a rough time with the first dose of meds. I mixed them in his favorite (Dannon La Creme) yogurt, but he didn't want anything to do with it.

I'll try mixing it in something else tomorrow.

I'm going to try the magnet therapy too - I just need to get a hold of Linda.

Ok, I've been talking with some wonderful glider people & got some tips to review with my vet in the morning.

Linda was wonderful enough to put some magnets in the mail for me - so we will be trying that as soon as they arrive.

I think I am going to ask the vet again about the steroids - I was so upset, I don't really remember everything she said.

Also will be asking about the addition of some B vitamins, Ensure, and crickets.

I'll keep you guys posted - thanks for being here...

I am praying very hard for Fawkes and for you. I pray that Fawkes will be another one of our community's miracle gliders. I wish I had more suggestions. I know that others have had success with the magnet therapy. So, I am so pleased that you have talked with Linda. She is amazing and I have already started my babies on the magnet therapy.

Have you done any research on vitamin E? Since you are adding vitamins, you might want to add it as well.

Gina, may I suggest that whenever you talk to the vet that you have a pad of paper and pen with you? That way you can take notes and will be less likely to forget what is said.

I fully plan on visiting you & Fawkes when I come down there to look at houses! So you tell Fawkes that I expect him to fight hard!!

You need to make sure that you get plenty of rest too Gina. We don't need you to get sick!

HUGSSSSSSSSSSS

Vitamin E has been shown in studies to increase immune functioning. It has also been shown to reduce tumor size and inhibit tumor growth in studies on rats.

I know that a few of us in the community have been using it in our diets for a while now. I am going to PM you a link, Gina. Give it a looking over and let me know what you think.

Hi gina, im fairly new here, dont post to much since the gliders we have belong to my daughter, she has 2 females, bella and baby are their names and i noticed the same thing the other day on bella, so my daughter is taking her to the vet on friday to see what it is, but i guess now i know:( she will be heartbroken. Bella is 4 years old, she doesnt seem any different, her appetite is fine she plays fine, but like you said this thing just popped up. When i first noticed it i was like what the heck is that. Was it painful when they used the needle to draw out a sample? I am so so sorry to hear that fawks has this and you are most definitly in our thoughts and prayers. Nikki

Just wanted to confirm Val's suggestion for the Vitamin E. It has been proven to be an excellent source for targeting the cancer cells causing them to loose viability, which will decrease the proliferation of the cells that are viable.
Gina, before you try anything other than what you are giving him right now, I would like to see what's being suggested to make sure that it is compatible with what he is getting now. Administering various Vitamins, Supplements, etc. can cause adverse reactions.

Gina, I just talked to Bruce and he said he highly recommends Vit E. He told me to tell you to ask your vet how much you can give. We used it with our gliders with Antitoxins and I swear it saved the ones left.

As someone with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, I can attest to the power of Vitamin E in humans anyway...after almost being killed by Chemo & Radiation, I started following a Homeopathic routine, and one of the first things I was told about was taking Vitamin E. Now I use Essiac, and though I still have Cancer, I'm healthier than most of my friends that don't! You can also use Essiac on animals, & I can get you info on that if you'd like...

I'm sorry your little guy is ill, & I'll light a candle hug2

Ok, I'm still trying to get the last of Fawkes meds into him - they are really bitter, so he just shakes his head when I squirt it in his mouth.

I have tried yogurt & today I tried apples & blueberries baby food. I have some other things to try - I just hope he likes one of them.

Nikki - When they stuck a needle in it to pull out cells, it was very fast, but he was not happy about it. Good luck with your little girl.

Peggy - I did email Donna, but have not heard back yet. I don't have her number.

Carolyn - I looked up the Essiac - it doesn't have any of the same ingredients as the herbals he's currently on. I wonder if it could be added.

Ok, Here's my list of things to ask the vet about adding to Fawkes' regime:

Vit E
Vit B
Ensure
Crickets
Essiac

Arg - I don't know what I'm doing here & I am just worried that I'm going to make him take all this stuff & we don't even know if it will work well together or if I'm just stressing him more. I don't even know if we went down the right path with the herbals, or if he should have been on steroids. I just feel completely lost in all this. I wish we had some more definitive answers about cancer in suggies.

I am so sorry to hear that. I study and consult for a lot of oncology companies, so I know a good deal about treatments. (That and I'm a homeopath). One thing that's gotten a lot of science press lately is the benefit of EGCG in fighting cancer. That's the active compound in green tea. It's going into clinical trials for leukemia/lymphoma as we speak.

I'm not sure how to give it to gliders or if it'll harm them. Maybe a natural powder form he can lick? Wish I could help!

Gina.........................I know its all very confusing................................and theres not enough research ...................and every vet and everybody has their own ideas about what might help. Vit. e is what I am hearing the most about....................I think I am going to talk with my vet about that for some of my gliders. I know Spencer takes a diff. kind of medicine but I mix it 1 part med to 4 parts HPW warmed to room temp and he takes it much better that way.........the nuerontin he takes is very bitter. I have heard the word surgery as well. When Rockys lump was removed and sent off to pathology (The vet could not get any fluid out of it) He lived for 4 more weeks. I may have indicated to you on the phone the other night that I thought that was why it spread fast but the vet assures me it wasnt. Have you had an x-ray to see if its spreading to his little bones?? If its not spreading yet surgery is an option...............................................

You are Fawkes mom and you will make the right choices/decisions for your guy with you vet...........................the right decicions are the ones you can live with.

Everything happens the way its supposed to.

I'm sorry about your guy. Could you explain what the lump is from? I know cancerous growths don't spring up over night - is it filled with fluid?
