Curing brain tumor in a month ?

I have a friend who alleged to be having brain tumor and recovering. However, he only went through one chemotherapy session and claimed to have the tumor totally eradicated. The most suspicious thing is that from diagnosis to recovery, it took only 1 month. Is it possible that he is lying or can cancer really be cured in just 1 month with 1 chemotherapy session.
