Our Patients' Stories
Walking the Path of Hope and Healing
I was incredibly scared. I never thought the tumor above my femur could be anything more, but the MRI showed otherwise. “Suspected multiple myeloma.” In my research I found Hope4Cancer, and they resonated with me. After fighting this for over four years I was shocked at the response the cancer had to the treatment and I’m still in disbelief.
I was scared. The doctor said, “There is a very large ‘something’ in your abdomen.” My world stopped. I went to my husband’s office next to mine, and I sat down and started crying. I underwent surgery to remove the tumor. It wasn’t until later I learned how important nutrition is. I learned you have to be diligent, but there is something that you can do.
I was horrified. “YOU HAVE CANCER” was the scariest thing I had ever heard. I couldn’t do the standard treatments. I wanted to be around for my children. I started doing research and eventually found a clinic I knew was right for me. Cancer has been scary, but I’m working on that, but I know cancer doesn’t have to be a death sentence!
“Your husband is having a seizure!” It was Stage 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme. A very malignant brain cancer. They told me there isn’t a cure. Aaron is 40, the love of my life, the father of my children. We wanted to extend his life a few decades, not just a couple years. It was a large faith step for us to commit to healing non-conventionally. Was this the miracle we looked for?
I was rushed into trying to make decisions after my diagnosis. I felt like I was letting my body down. I was overwhelmed. I started researching on how I could heal myself. I said no thank you to conventional treatments. The mind-spirit work I did was almost more important than the body work I did to heal. Cancer doesn’t scare me like it used to.
After undergoing surgery to reconstruct my bladder and remove the surrounding lymph nodes, the post surgical report showed the cancer had spread to my other lymph nodes. I was given 4 months to a year. I have a daughter, and wife. I needed to be around. I was given a referral and I knew it was my chance to start on my healing journey.
