Tiffany Childress  KNOXVILLE, TN
Well it started a few weeks ago, I started feeling weak and fatigue and having headaches every morning. In the past week I have been having rapid heart beats. Thursday, I spent the day outside and started feeling worse, that evening I started having having severely blurred vision. I came to where they did blood work and heart tests...my platelet count was fatally low, 7,000 when it was supposed to be 400,000. My hemoglobin was half of what it was supposed to be and I had 1/3 blood left in my body. The tests pretty much said I had leukemia. After a bone marrow biopsy, they confirmed I have acute leukemia. My platelets are demising everyday and I can't keep them up so I'm not producing any blood. It's an aggressive form of blood cancer that needs immediately treatment.
So my insurance really sucks and they are saying I don't have any right now so, trying to get that worked out. My dad passed away when I was young and my mom and I don't have a really close relationship but, I'm grateful she is here now. I'm a single parent and I get no child support. I work sometimes at Quaker steak for bike night and I work part-time at 42nd street designs.

I have a roommate which I pay half of the bills. I have car insurance and a cell phone bill and daycare expenses. Your help is very much appreciated for myself and my daughter. Thank You for your support and prayers.

Hi Tiffany Having read your Facebook page, I felt moved to send you our short book that we have produced about my wifes experience with cancer in 2011. Following the loss of both my parents to cancer in 2008, I witnessed things that I was very uncomfortable with in orthodox treatment. This prompted me to research extensively into cancer, nutrition and alternative therapies and then with a bolt of lightning my wife Sue was diagnosed with cancer in 2011. Sue was written off by the medical establishment, saying there was nothing that could be done. We did not accept this and we were in a position to implement all that I had learned in the three years following my parents passing away. The tumour on the liver is now just scar tissue having had no Chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery!. Sue no longer has cancer and we are keen to help others by sharing our experience of; where we were, exactly what we did and where we are now. I have attached a copy of our book for your reference and a link to our newly formed Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/CancerOurExperience We are not looking to make money out of anyone, this is our passion to educate people in building up the own God given immune system and to assist the bodys environment to be as hostile to cancer by utilising natural means. Lots of people are doing this, all it takes is knowledge and a willingness to take personal responsibility All we would ask is that if you do go down the route of our experience then please let us know how you get on in order to bless others going through cancer with encouraging positive experiences. Our book Cancer Our Experience is not giving medical advice on specific cases, it is giving our experience for people to make of it what they will and to encourage people to conduct their own research and to take their own personal responsibility. You and your daughter are in my prayers Tiffany May God richly bless and strengthen you to get through these times Kind regards Robert Olifent
