Yes, Dr Thomas Seyfried, cancer researcher, has found keto diets do shrink tumors, in fact, in the interview that Dr Peter Attia conducted with him, one of the things Dr Seyfried would like to see is patients, who once diagnosed with cancer and if time allowed, that they be put on a strict ketogenic diet to shrink the tumor to allow the tumor to be excised more easily and completely.
Another one who advocates ketosis to help (it's not a standalone treatment for cancer, but it is a force multiplier) is Dr Nasha Winters. Her book, The Metabolic Approach to Cancer
should be a must read given your situation. I read that book right after I read Dr Bredesen's book The End of Alzheimer's
and found there's a lot of overlap even though they're targeting two different health concerns. There are also a lot of interviews with her and some videos they can be found here: https://optimalterrainconsulting.com/media
. Do be advised she's changing the name of her website soon (I think first of the year) so hopefully that link will still work in a few days. Dr Nasha (as she calls herself) is easy for laypeople to understand and a long time cancer survivor herself.

MCT oil is a great aid for ApoE4s to "kick start" a person who is trying to become ketogenic, but continual use is not advised and there are other issues to consider with MCT oil. You might want to visit our wiki Coconut Oil, MCT oil, and other Ketone/Cognition Boosters (salts, esters)
