I admire you for your courage,not to encourage you but still it is your decision that gives you peace of mind.
I myself am not a believer in chemo,surgery and radiation although I did 2 sessions of chemo before surgery and escaped from chemo again after surgery as they advised me to.Two years after,there was a lump on my clavicle and oncologist said to have chemo which I did for 2 sessions,then the lump was gone,I read that cancer has 5 layers and chemo works only for the 4th and 5th layer they say.The side effects of CHEMO to me is very harsh and the worst was my blood platelets and RBCs dropped to a point that i had to do blood transfusion.
What I tried from the very beginning of my diagnosis is taking CURCUMIN 500 MG DAILY but please check the label because CURCUMIN is better absorbed with PIPERINE(a substance from black pepper),so I take CURCUMIN with a little black pepper when I take it. I have not followed any 8 week plan,instead I took it continuously as it comes from TURMERIC(a spice), I also take CAYENNE 515 mg daily.
It helps a lot to have plant based diet,raw vegetables,fruits. Minimize sugar,better avoid if you can because sugar feeds cancer,so it thrives well with sugar. Make sure also,you need to have adequate hydration (at least 8-10 glasses of fluids a day.) And an exercise of 30 min a day is very important too.
I am 66 and would like to enjoy my retirement with as you said good quality of life,not to go back for CHEMO again and radiation.
Good luck my sister and take care,May the good Lord heals you in His miraculous and mighty way.
