An illustration of the brain showing a large tumor located in the midline region, indicating a diffuse midline glioma. The tumor is prominently positioned near critical areas like the brainstem and thalamus.

Diffuse midline glioma is a type of astrocytoma that tends to be located in the center of the brain. Most of the time, these tumors form in the brainstem. This is an important area that controls breathing, swallowing, and heart rate. But they can also develop in other central parts, like the thalamus and spinal cord.

Because of where they grow, doctors may not be able to operate on them safely. Diffuse midline gliomas usually affect children, but adults can get them too.

Diffuse midline gliomas grow extremely fast. They are very aggressive brain cancers that are lethal, on average within 15-16 months of diagnosis. However, they don’t spread to other body parts.

From Despair to Hope: Battling Advanced Brain Cancer with Fenbendazole

December 2021

In December 2021, doctors found that I had an advanced diffuse midline glioma tumor located in the center of my brain. It was too risky for surgery, so I went through the standard chemotherapy and radiation treatments. But the chemo made me feel so sick that I couldn’t finish it.

March 2022

In March 2022, the medical team gave me some bad news. They said the regular treatments did not work and estimated I had between 6 weeks and 6 months left to live. Hearing that was scary and sad.

June 2022

After the tough news from doctors, a friend mentioned a treatment called Fenbendazole that could possibly help. I got my recent June 22 medical images and showed them to my care team.

Learning more about my diagnosis and alternatives, even if uncertain, has helped me feel more in control and lifted the pressure of this health struggle somewhat. I am determined to continue exploring the best approach for me during this challenging time.

July 2022

In July 2022, I began my first dose of Fenben along with some other natural supplements recommended by people wanting to support my health during this time.

At first, I took 222 mg of Fenben twice daily, which I slowly increased to 444 mg twice daily. To help my liver process the medications, I also took a daily liver detox supplement. Plus, my doctor provided standard blood tests, which so far have continued to show good results.

September 2022

In September 2022, I received very promising results from another MRI. These scans showed that most of the tumor had disappeared!

As of now, I’m continuing with one daily dose of 444 mg of Fenben, which I take in the morning. I’m using the product from Fenben Labs (222 mg capsules). This stuff has saved my life, and I can’t recommend it enough as an alternative option for anyone fighting cancer.

One Man’s Journey Beyond Standard Cancer Treatments

The man has generously shared his experience providing such thorough details. The key lessons from his case are similar to others we’ve shared elsewhere. In some cases, standard chemotherapy and radiation alone are either poorly tolerated or ineffective, leading to the decision to search elsewhere. Surgery is not always an option for tumor removal due to its location.

Breaking Barriers: Fenbendazole’s Promising Impact on Brain Tumors

Research shows this treatment can easily enter the brain through the blood-brain barrier. This allows Fenbendazole to directly work on the tumor.

In the man’s situation, several factors indicated that Fenbendazole may provide benefits. With his tumor located deeply in the brain and other approaches not working well or even being possible, he hoped this alternative route could help.

In around three to four months, he noticed a significant decrease in his tumor size while taking a dose of 444 mg of Fenbendazole daily. It is uncertain how much the other supplements the male was taking added to the effect, as other similar cases we have studied have succeeded with only Fenbendazole.
