In brief: End of life
Towards the last days in any cancer patients life it really is about the same.
They are kept comfortable with pain meds, they quit eating, growing weaker, sleep more.When they are awake they usually have pain so more meds are given and hence they sleep more and more. At the very end their breathing becomes irregular and noisy...And then eventually stops.Hopefully they have passed peacefully.

In brief: Novo TTF
The fda (us food and drug administration) has approved a new treatment for patients as an alternative to chemotherapy.
The promising new non-invasive treatment by novocure uses "tumor treating fields" (novottf) to treat cancerous growths and is now available for adult patients with recurring brain tumors (recurrent glioblastoma or gbm). This is latest for cancer rx and is being used other cancers.
