Re: [MOL] Cancer questions...from Chris



Hey Chris, you have been quiet.  Aloe Vera, a natural substance works really
well for radiation burns.  Don't use any talc products.  The hoarseness
could be from the radiation and yes your Dad can again have radiation
treatments.  Gosh!  Remember a little over a year ago and here your Dad has
made it through so much.  I remember your first message as though as it were
yesterday and I share in your joy that your father is with you.
Warmly, lillian
