I'm very sorry. Many of us have gone through losing one to hemangio. The conventional wisdom is treatment is usually a lost cause -- by the time they find a tumor, it's usually already spread to other organs. The prognosis is so poor, and the chemo protocol so ineffective, that at most you get a few more weeks, or maybe a few more months if you are very lucky. I'm positive your oncologist already talked with you about that.
It sounds like you aren't talking about the conventional chemo and are looking at something new, still in clinical trial. I've read there are a lot of new experimental approaches being tested for hemangio. The world needs better chemo for hemangio, so maybe you could be part of something that someday may help more dogs. And maybe give yours a lot more time than the older treatments.
As for I'mYunity, I recall talking with a vet oncologist about it regarding a dog with a different kind of cancer. She was familiar with it, and thought it wasn't good to use during radiation but maybe during some chemo, depending on the one used. You should definitely have that conversation with your vet oncologist -- since the chemo you are looking at is new and experimental, there may be issues with cross-reactions that they'll want to think through. Every single supplement needs to be disclosed to the oncologist when planning treatment. She even gave me a recipe card for a specially formulated home-cooked meal, so that she knew exactly what he was taking in, and in what amounts. Even the vitamins and minerals in it were carefully tracked.
You might order a copy of Dr. Dressler's Dog Cancer Survival Guide, as it has a lot of info on neutraceuticals as well as conventional therapy. It gave me something to focus on when I was reeling from my last senior's cancer diagnosis.
