I am so sorry to hear this. 3 1/2 is just too young for this diagnosis. Maxx is young and strong and you never know, a prognosis is just that -- a good guess. Regarding diet, there are a lot of good resources out there, just if considering any supplements, run it by your oncologist to make sure it would not interfere with any chemo. My golden is also battling cancer. I have him on grain free low carb kibble and supplement with cooked turkey and vegetables and eggs. Please keep us posted in Maxx's progress -- he's a very handsome boy

So sorry to hear about your beautiul boy Maxx. I would never want to give anyone false hope, but my belief is "if we didn't have hope, what would we have". I am here to tell you that my best friend Bridgett has was diagnosed last January 2012 with breast cancer with mets to the lungs with two large tumors in her lungs and one beside her liver or in her liver. They also told me that at most without anything we would have about 4 months with her. Now mind you she has probably had this cancer for a couple of years. One year after her diagnoses she is still doing pretty well. We opted out of any chemo or radiation and only treated her holistically to the best of our ability. She just turned 10 last week. She is starting to go down hill now, but today is a good day and I am blessed to have had her much more than the 4 months that was predicted. I haven't given up hope that I have her around a little longer but the cancer is now taking over. The budwig diet and essiac tea are the two main things we did. I have recently started her on milk thistle. I truly feel your pain. Prayers for you and Maxx.

Maxx is such a beautiful guy! So very sorry that you're going through this with him. At 3 1/2 years, you should have had many, many years ahead. Very tragic! Sending thoughts and prayers for MUCH more time that is free of pain!

Maxx our 3.5 yr.old golden has metastatic histiocytic sarcoma

What a handsome boy! How is Max doing? Please update us. We're battling cancer, too. Scout has MCT. He was also given 6 months with chemo...we're in month 4 and he's doing ok (all things considered). We feed grain free, high protein, low carb. We do fish oil and Milk thistle supplements. We also add dark greens, eggs, chicken, cottage cheese.

I don't know if those are good ideas for all cancer and all chemo treatments but it is working for us.
