Novel cancer treatment saves man from amputation

A man underwent surgery to treat a tumor only to have it return two years later. Drugs were effective for only a short while and doctors proposed amputation. He then tried a novel treatment in Austria where choloroform is injected into the body and infra-red light is targeted at the tumors. Two treatments successfully stopped the growth of the tumor as well as several other tumors that were also discovered. He is confident that more treatment will stop the cancer in its tracks.
