My apologies for using this image, which has nothing to do with what I'm writing, to pull your eye here and hopefully to get you to read the following message…
People do not have to die from cancer.
I spent yesterday evening with my girlfriend who was diagnosed with Stage IV (metastasized, or spread to other organs or throughout the body) lung cancer with an 8cm tumor about a year ago. Because she had been with several friends over the years during their last agonizing moments––agony and dying not from cancer, but chemotherapy and radiation poisoning––she decided not to go that route. Friday, she got the results back from her most recent PET scan ––> absolutely no cancer was present.
Stage IV cancer to zero cancer.
I'm not going to go into her details here, to avoid the volley of comments from the fear-mongers, except to say that she did not treat her cancer with chemo or radiation. Instead she did quite a few things to assist her own body's immune system to fight the cancer itself. And WON. It is possible.
After having watched, myself, two other dear friends die horrible deaths after going the chemo/radiation route in the past year and a half––one who had only been diagnosed with Stage I at his early diagnosis––I feel compelled to pass this idea along. People do not have to die from cancer.
Her main message: after you get up off the floor from the horrible shock of finding out you have cancer … stop, breathe, there is a route to beat this, and to feel better and better during the whole process––not worse and worse. While you don’t have to avoid standard medical doctors (she did not) you don't have to slavishly believe every word they say, either.
Never rule out the fact that fear can be used on many people diagnosed with cancer because cancer is BIG BUSINESS.
"Unless your doctor is constantly studying microbiology, neurology,
endocrinology, nutrition, immunology, alternative medicine and lots more disciplines, he/she is not fully qualified to advise you on beating your cancer. No human being can read and evaluate all the information currently available."
If you have cancer or know of someone who does:
"The word 'cancer' in your diagnosis always creates fear. You must accept this and vow to fight it. A cancer diagnosis is not a death notice.
An Instant Survivor Hot Line
Here’s a Cancer Hot Line for you to call right now. It is 1(800)433-0464.
Richard Bloch, a cancer survivor and co-founder of the tax-preparation firm, H & R BLOCK, INC, founded this Hot Line. In 1978, Bloch was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and given three months to live. He is still alive and well 23 years later.
The above Hot Line connects you to a volunteer group of cancer patients who take phone calls from newly diagnosed cancer patients. Call them now. Many cancer patients find support groups especially helpful. It certainly doesn’t hurt to meet people who were given death sentences 10 years ago––and are still alive."

It lists a vast number of methods and is not trying to sell any singular form of treatment, only pass along the idea there are other options.)
To your continued health …with love, from me.
