ARVADA, Colo. — When you have a terminal brain tumor, and you have already undergone brain surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, the question becomes, "Now what?"

For the Bornsteins of Arvada, the answer was: Let's try everything.

Since Ira Bornstein's diagnosis of a brain tumor in July of 2020, he and his wife, Sandra, have been traveling, exercising, skiing and preparing only all-natural foods. Ira even sports a device on his head from Israel that creates electric fields to stop the cellular division of a brain tumor.

"I figured we had to implement kind of a full court press on lifestyle choices," Sandra said.

So far, their algorithm is working, and doctors have instructed them to maintain this regimen. He has already surpassed the initial prediction of 12-18 months by many months, and there has been no reappearance of cancer in his brain.
