Happy Holidays Everyone.

The last two months of the year has been difficult, but I am thankful that I am still here to complain about it (ha ha). I am experiencing extreme edema from my upper torso to my feet. We are trying everything to reduce it. Please keep me and my darling husband in your prayers.

I like to give my beloved husband his props. Be proud of him everyone because he has stuck by my side through my struggles. He dont complain or murmur. He patiently serves me in the best way he knows how. I am so blessed to have him. Thank God!

Right now I owe my doctor over $8000 and he is still willing to keep treating me. I would love to pay him off or at least end 2013 with a zero balance. I cannot do it alone.

Inspite of my challenges, I am still blessed. And, I thank God everyday for your love, prayers, and support.

I Love You,

Linda

Greetings my awesome supporters.

Well I have an unpleasent update to share with you all regarding my most recent oncologist. Over the last year and a half, I have been having one heck of a time with these physicians. The most recent one has been the worst. I've met with him twice. With each appointment, he has gotten worse. He is closed minded, dont respect my decisions and opinions. He dont know the stage of the cancer, dont give me honest answers. I never seen anything like it. And, his manners are absolutely appauling..... After meeting with him a couple of weeks ago, I was angry for two days, and felt ill for two weeks. I am not going back. He's Fired!!! Please pray for me because I cannot keep dealing with these kind of doctors.

Thank you for your prayers and support. You are truly a blessing to me. And, with your love and support, I can continue this journey of holistic healing (that's what keeping me strong.)

Thank you,

Linda

Hello Everyone,

I am experiencing a lot of edema. I was awaken about 2am on Wednesday, August 28, 2013, with difficulties breathing. My husband had to rush me to the emergency room. Please keep me in your prayers also. Thank you for your love, cards, calls, and support. God bless you all. Linda

This is My Story… Follow her on this Natural holistic journey!

Hello, My name is Linda Tennell. Thank you Jamila for helping me setup this personal donation website.
I have been seriously ill for several years. In 2009 my health took a turn for the worst and in the same year, I also lost my job. Although facing deteriorating health, I continued searching for new job but without success. By 2011, I became so ill I could no longer work. In February of 2012, I was diagnosed with Hepatocellular Carcinoma, a form of liver cancer.
Finally, I was officially declared disabled by the Social Security Administration (SSA), effective November 1, 2011. In spite of my disability, I am not eligible for Medicare because there is a two year waiting period. After receiving my first check in August 2012, DSHS informed me that Medicaid would no longer cover my medical expenses. And, my medical would end effective August 31, 2012, because I was now receiving social security benefits. So, now I have a cancer that threatens my life and there is no medical coverage to help me get help.
DSHS informed me that I might be eligible for their Spend Down program. But before I could qualify, I must accumulate almost $6000 in medical debt to meet their Spend Down requirements every 6 months. Then they’ll pay future medical expenses, but not the $6000 needed to qualify for the Spend Down program. They also advised me that each Spend Down period is for 6 months only. Then I have to do it all over again. And, later I learned this program does not cover my treatments (alternative medical treatments.)
When I was first diagnosed, I took the conventional medicine route. My first treatment was T.A.C.E. (Trans Arterial Chemoembolization.) This is a type of chemo treatment. I was advised that ninety-nine percent of the chemo would to go directly into the tumor and only one percent would go into my body. Well the results were devastating. What actually happened was none of it entered the tumor and all of it was dispersed throughout my body causing severe damage to healthy parts of my liver and other vital organs. After just one treatment, I had many serious side effects, ranging from temporary blindness (severe double vision), crippling migraine headaches, severe edema with pain and fever in my lower extremities, huge alternating styes on each eye, a severely weakened immune system and unbearable itching.
Treatment number two was R. F. A. (Laparoscopic Radiofrequency Ablation.) This was an attempt to burn the tumor. Well they missed again. The surgeon did not burn any of the tumor but burned healthy liver tissue further damaging my liver. In addition to all of that, they overdosed with a pain medication called Dilaudid. I stopped breathing and I almost died.
Surviving these catastrophic and near fatal procedures, I have decided to abandon conventional medical treatments for cancer and refuse to use any kind of conventional toxic medicines as a treatment protocol which may causes more damage. So, I decided to return to what I know best that is Alternative Medicine. Currently, I am receiving treatments from an incredible doctor in the alternative medicine community. By making this decision, my health has improved tremendously and I am doing and feeling so much better.
My doctor has prescribed other treatments which will support my immune system to allow my own body's defense system to fight the cancer, so far so good. In order to continue my treatments, I desperately need assistance to raising the necessary funds. So, I am reaching out to the greater community at large for your support. Without treatment, this form of cancer has a life expectancy of eight months. I am doing everything I can to raise the funds myself but my medical needs are greater than my financial resources. There is no time to delay, your support is greatly appreciated. Your support is vital. Please help me to continue to fight this battle with cancer. Let's win together.
May God Bless You,
Linda
