Saving Breasts in China: Cancer Cure

$3,473 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 52 people in 76 months
We are raising funds to travel to FUDA Hospital in Guan Zhou, China to accompany a breast cancer patient who will be treated using cryoablation. This revolutionary technique freezes the tumor in the breast, eliminating the need for a mastectomy or lumpectomy. When the tumor is absorbed, an immune response to the cancer is stimulated. FUDA's doctors now amplify this response with immune therapy. This is resulting in many cases of cures of breast cancer, some in severe late stages. Our goal is to capture this story through video and blog posts to spread awareness of this amazing advance which is not readily available in the United States, even though it was first developed here by US researchers! Laura Ross-Paul is making this trip along with her son Louie Paul who is a filmmaker and will document the trip. Laura is a 10 year breast cancer survivor and the first woman in America to keep her breast and avoid a mastectomy using cryoablation. Our goal in this fundraiser is to let women know this treatment is available to them in China and piggybacks our creation of a non-profit organization, the Breast Cancer Freeze Foundation, which will allow people to make donations to send patients to China for treatment if they don't have the funds. Our long range goal is to bring attention to this treatment and to prod the medical establishment in the US to offer this on a wide spread, insured basis.

Please let us know if you do not want to receive these updates on Lori's trip to China to bring awareness of cryoablation breast cancer treatment in China.

Off to China!

Alex and Becca are driving Louie and I to the airport to begin our trip to China. Our fundraiser has raised about half our cost for the trip and for that we are highly appreciative.
We are going to be posting both written and video blogs daily beginning today. We feel 12/12/12 is an auspicious day to begin this adventure. Our hope is that our reporting on FUDA will give other women a roadmap for saving their breasts and treating their cancer.

We will arrive in China early tomorrow morning. Alex remarked that it used to take his mother three months to travel by steamer from London to Hong Kong and that was if she took the short cut through the Suez Canal! What an amazing time we live in, to quote Sean's movie, a time in which scientific knowledge is doubling every year.

We're now one third of the way to our goal! Thank you so much to those who have donated. We have bought the tickets and Lori and Louie leave for China next week! For any of you who have thought of donating, now's the time to pitch in. Also, some people have had trouble using the donation system and I don't know why. The donation process must be a little tricky, but everyone who initially had trouble was later able to donate, so please be patient. Please know this does work and we have no control over that part of the process.
Also, some people have thought that this is a hijacking of my email and a scam, but it's not! We're going to be spreading the word about this amazing cancer treatment through a free you tube video and our website, keepingthem.com, and then helping women get to China if they don't have the funds by using our new Non-Profit foundation, Breast Cancer Freeze Foundation, to give people a tax deductible way to contribute to a friend's travel and treatment expense. Thank you so much to all those who have already helped and those still considering doing so. You are helping the fight against Breast Cancer!
