Thank you for creating this network, I will pass it on. My mother inlaw had breast cancer 15 years ago and it returned. I was horrified at the change in her whilst she underwent chemo again. they gave her 3 months to live and the chemo nearly killed her before that. Well with some changes she has made (very hard woman to convert) She is still alive(3 years now) and recovered from the chemo treatment. she has gained weight and back to 'normal' self. I really would like to give her a book/dvd or both for christmas to encourage her to use nutrition and natural treatments as she is not out of the woods yet....any suggestions.
Thanks! :) This website is a great idea and much needed. I am sure it will help a lot of people. For myself, it gives me confidence to speak more openly with others when I have groups like this for support! :) So thank you for creating this network! :)
My story is more about what happens when you have cancer and no health insurance, a "vision" and the transformation of your thinking...and it all happened 30 or so years ago.
It was a journey I took alone..a hard one..and it took years to overcome the anger. But I beat the system in the end. Yes I did have to have surgeries..many of them..and after losing one ovary and tube and the other one left with so much scar tissue I was left infertile and still sick...I was never going to have babies...I was told.
I have a 14 year old :) Which means I fight a completely different battle..lol..but it's all good :)
It was my diet..I changed it. Then due to personal stupid reasons I went back to a SAD diet...and now I'm fighting again for my health (not cancer though)...and winning with an 80/10/10/Rave Diet mix. Most days it's all Raw....high fruit and always ALWAYS low fat.
We have to help each other if we have any hope for the future. Thanks for starting the site. It is becoming a place where people who have cancer can become confident in trying non medical procedure. Especially changing their diet. I am going to make a blog which I think will be great hopefully this weekend. Top things to do when you get cancer, to give people direction
