Caelyx (liposomal adriamycin) plus Avastin

hi
my mother has OVCA stage IV ,treated with carboplatin/taxol for 1st line treatment with total of 9 cycles plus debulking procedure (6 before surgery and 3 after) and results was perfect , BET/CT scan shows no evidence of active disease and CA-125 was 10 but unfortunately disease recurred again within 6 months  , now she started with Caelyx (before starting CA-125 was 8000+ jumped to 11000+ first week after chemo and 10000+ just before 2nd cycle ) and her doctor planning to start giving her  Avastin .

after lot of readings about alternative treatment , i found out that Curcumin and Milk thistle can have some good effects on cancer cells  but i am hesitating about giving her  these herbs

any idea if both curcumin and milk thistle can help with chemo and avastin

regards
