Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma in the news
From Collie, Western Australia(click for map): The Will To Live http://www.colliemail.com.au/news/local/news/general/the-will-to-live/1804062.aspx. This story by Elysia Tilbrook is about Michelle Whitney, a mom who was diagnosed last year with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma while she was pregnant with her third child. In the story, she says she is being treated with selenium - I found articles in PubMed about research on selenium in the prevention and treatment of certain cancers. Her community had a fund raiser for her back on April 16 to help offset treatment costs. I wish her and her young family the very best as she faces this with the rest of us.
