Suggest Treatment For Brain Cancer

Our friend was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1991 -clear for 10 yers -then showed up in her lungs-got over that-then her liver -cyber knife took care of that--now she's been diagnosed with brain cancer. Had radiation and has had seizures from the radiation. She is not able to function--my question is should she be treated with more radiation or just let go?

hello dear it seems that your friend's physical status is very poor now. At this stage i usually advise no more cancer directed therapies and just palliative treatment in the form of symptomatic approach. She should be given only supportive care.
thanks regards
