My recent diagnosis of stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma is a bit unnerving. I'm going to need intensive radiation and chemotherapy. Hopefully , after they shrink my tumor , the doctors can cut out what is left. I'm looking at a 3 month hospital stay and 2 months bed rest at home. All that time, unfortunately won't be able to work. I could sure use some financial, emotional,and physical help. I've fed 1000's of people over the years. Now I need help to be fed. Most sincerely, Chef

Sorry I neglected an update. Still weak , getting better. My amazing shrinkage didn't stop !! When I returned for my next scan (6 weeks, not 12 ) the nurses started to cry. They never saw such a dramatic win over CANCER in 18 and 23 years !! My doctors freaked ! 2 that hadn't seen me in 4 months and said I wouldn't survive , were speechless!! MY TUMOR WAS 85% GONE . AND ALL 4 CANCERS I HAD , WERE DEAD !!!!! Unfortunately , only 1 doctor , head of chemotherapy , is now looking into CBD'S !!! The one that matters the most !! The other 6 just patted themselves on the back!!?!! I was very fortunate. I saw quite a few other patients die while I was in the hospice. Now my second chance on life is to help others with the nasty , unforgiving disease of cancer. Thank you to everyone who helped me. Those I hope that my experience can help you and others learn the truth: CHEMO AND RADIATION TREATMENTS RARELY WORK !!!! Thanks to those that came to my fundraisers. AGT FOREVER!!! Feel free to contact me here if you have questions or need knowledge on how to REALLY fight CANCER !!!! Thank you Gina for all your help and support!! FREE THE WEED , FREE THE PEOPLE !!!

So the doctors tell me I'm going to be getting 33 radiations and chemotherapy. The next day I meet with the head chemo doctor and he lays out my options on type and duration. 2 kinds . One side effects are chance of kidney and liver failure or possible death. The other has tinnitus ( ringing in the ears) , nausea , and neuropathy ( tingling pins and needles in toes and fingers). I can get 3 triple doses or spread out over 6. Of course I chose 6. Better a little poison than a lot !! So 7 weeks away from home. They expect 10-15% shrinkage over the course. Send you home , wait 3 months, scan again , and see the results. Then determine if more treatments or cut out what is left. Well..... tomorrow is my LAST RADIATION!!!! I can come home!!! And guess what ? ALL the doctors are amazed that my tumor has shrunk 40%!!! I've got them thinking about CBD'S!!!! I WON'T BE WEARING MY KILT FOR AWHILE!! I lost my ass , clothes don't fit!! Hopefully in a couple months I'll be able to eat food again !! So come see me at the Gin Mill !!!

Okay , part 2 . So I get ordered an MRI by the clinic. I go to muhlenberg medical and they ask for my prescription. Huh ! I was never given one and they throw me out! I get referred to LVH Cancer center and the doctor orders surgery. The week of Woodstock! I begged for the next week. This is may. I break out with Folliculitis and they postpone surgery until I'm cleared. Figured it might be my last Woodstock , went full tilt boogie! Come back , cleared for September 9th surgery. On Sept 1 st , I'm in the woods taking pictures of spider webs and get stabbed in the eye. Hospital sends me to an ophthalmologist for emergency surgery because there's a piece of stick in my eye! Here we go again. Go home , can't see, and 3 days later...... I don't get pink eye , I get pink head !!! 2/3 of my head blew up over night. Antibiotics , antibiotic drops . NO SURGERY AGAIN!!! Finally get cleared and scheduled for the day after St Patrick's day surgery.In the meantime , my surgeon said 9 months had passed and they finally ordered a biopsy.2 weeks before, he hoped to have the results back in time. First St Patty's I would not be able to drink for in 23 years !! 2 days before snip,snip , doctor got results. I don't have LYMPHOMA, I have squamous cell carcinoma. NO SURGERY!!! So I REALLY got soused and staggered in the parade handing out IRISHDILLO'S !!! (green armadillos) . So I now get the doctor shuffle.LVH , PENN , GEISINGER. I end at Geisinger in Danville, specialist in neck cancer. I see a team of 7 doctors and they immediately order intensive chemotherapy and radiation. I checked in on June 6th. To be continued.....

Well kids . It's been a month and time for an update. I'll get back to that. Let's start at the beginning. I went to bed Friday November 9th , 2013 at 11:30. I get worked like a dog 6 or 7 days a week. I was beat. I wake up at 7:30 and freak!!! There's a tumor on my neck the size of a softball!! I don't go to work and call my clinic. They can't see me for 3 weeks. But my main doctor is into homeopathic remedies. She tells me to go buy CHLORELLA at any health food store. A blue-green algae used to detoxify. I get the biggest bottle and eat a handful. By the time I get into the doctors office it has shrunk down to the size of a baseball!! Since I have NO INSURANCE, she prescribed for me ITIRES drops. It targets the LYMPHATIC system to help drain and boosts your immune system. 12 drops a day. Says come back in a month. I do. By then, it's down to the size of a golf ball!!! Now her and 3 other doctors think I have LYMPHOMA. nothing much I can do without insurance. I get from California a bottle of CBD'S and proceed to take a month 's dosage in a week. My connection dries up. Come April , I have a mild coronary due to stress at work. I'm put in ICU for 2 days. Then I get a bill for $23,000 !!! I can't pay that. I've already tried 3 times for welfare medical. Turned down. Obamacare says no because I'm under the poverty level of $17,000. I only earn 13 k. The clinic feels sorry for me and the hospital doesn't think they'll ever get paid. So they PUSH through and get me welfare insurance!!! To be continued....
