I had my second day of treatment today and was sitting across from a lady who was also receiving treatment for cancer. She was quite a bit older than I am and had already dealt with cancer a few years back. We got to talking and she told me her story. Four years ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She went through the traditional methods of treatment. They removed both her breasts as well as heavy doses of chemotherapy and radiation. She was given a clean bill of health. I asked her about some of her doctors methods. She had seen a very "prominent" oncologist in the St Louis area. She was determined to try and get herself healthy any way she could. She asked the doctor about the importance of diet, exercise, positive attitude, supplements etc.... The doctor sounded an awful lot like the boy I saw at the clinic. He said there was really nothing else that could be done, his methods were all that stood in the way of her and death! He actually encouraged her to eat anything she pleased, saying that she might as well enjoy her time here. ( CANCER FEEDS ON SUGAR, HOW WAS THIS NOT MENTIONED BY AN SO CALLED EXPERT) I was absolutely floored when she told me this!!!!! How can someone who is in charge of saving lives be so blind to the truth??????????

I came across a good quote the other day that I thought was fitting to the current situation WE ALL FACE! " Truth is truth. If a thousand men believe something foolish, it is still foolish! Truth is never dependent upon consensus of opinion. I have found it is better to be alone and acting upon the truth in my heart than to follow a gaggle of silly geese doomed for mediocrity" OR A LONG SLOW DEATH DUE IN PART TO NEGLECT IN THIS CASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This lady is now sitting across from me because the cancer has spread into her brain ( SOUND FAMILIAR TO ANYONE WHO KNEW MY MOTHER?) due to the fact that the underlying cause of her cancer was left unchecked. ( HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE FRIENDS, LOVED ONES, ETC... WHO WERE GIVEN A CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH ONLY FOR IT TO RETURN YEARS LATER, STRONGER, AND MORE DEADLY?) There were no recommendations for lifestyle modification whatsoever. She said if she was to do it all over again she would have chosen her current path. Her oncologist told her that her immune system had been damaged, and that some of the drugs she was treated with would never leave her system. What is the point of this type of treatment? If you or someone you know is dealing with cancer, please encourage them to do their own research rather than to put blind faith in their oncologist! I know there is not one solution to any type of cancer, but there are a lot of things that can be done that the patient is denied information to. THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE!

I am pleased to say that she has been receiving care for about a month now and is responding very nicely. She said how big of a shame it was to go through all of that suffering in the first place when it actually decreased her chance of survival due to the damage to the immune system and a few of her vital organs. I AGREE!!!!!!

It saddens me deeply to think of how things may have been different had my mom known the TRUTH! I think in some crazy way this may have happened to me so others would not repeat the same vicious cycle she went through 12 year ago!

On a lighter note, I was given an AARSOTA vaccine today that helps the immune system identify and target the cancer. I was told if I felt sick, had a fever or puked that was a good sign. The immune system is beginning to attack the cancer. I feel like shit so the vaccine is doing it's job. I hope everyone is doing well. All I ask is to KNOW YOUR OPTIONS if something like this happens to you!!!!!
