Hi, So my dad just told me he got diagnosed with stomach cancer Stage 2 in June 2018. He don't want chemo and operations as he thinks that he can fight the cancer naturally by changing his diets- eating only meat and veges, taking super food and supplements. He went to Germany to visit my sister and got a second opinion from a German doctor. The doctor was shocked that he did not do any treatment as it's a worse case of stomach cancer. Also, he went for a check up 2 weeks ago and found that the cancer has spread a little. Hence, my sister has been pressuring him to do treatment but failed to do so. So I tried instead but my dad said that he wants to fight it naturally. I want to prove to him that chemo and operation are really required for him to at least have the chance to live for more than 5 years instead of gambling with his life with healthy diet and supplements. I need advice on how can I persuade him to go and get treatments please. Thank you.
