Cancer Strikes Twice in 8 Months

Beth Goehringer  PORT RICHEY, FL

It didn't hit me at first. I really had cancer again after going through an unwanted hysterectomy just 6 months earlier. I left the oncology office and headed back to work, but by the time I got home I was angry and I didn't know why. In the light of the next day I realized the anger stemmed from feeling out of control. I didn't like the  diagnosis and I didn't like the doctor's prescription - Radiation.

The alternative choices seemed way out of reach. I trusted the Oasis of Hope in Tijuano ( www.oasisofhope.com), but how would I ever come up with $30,000.  I had just accepted a job because we couldn't make it on social security.

Thanks to all the love, prayers and contributions, and after a ton of research, I have begun treatment with Carla Gilmore at Love Alkaline Living Wellness Center ( www.lovealkalineliving.com). Carla is only 30 minutes away and “pay as you go” instead of a huge lump sum, but treatment will continue as long as necessary.  More importantly she treats the entire body with healthy, non-damaging therapies, diet and coaching.  Please read my 3/17 update for more about my treatment and also check out www.lovealkalineliving.com.  

For those just tuning in: A routine ultrasound in 2016 revealed polyps. We never expected a subsequent biopsy would test positive for uterine cancer. Then a September 6th total hysterectomy eliminated the cancer according to the oncologist (I wish I’d known about Carla then.) 

Fast forward. February 1, feeling almost myself, I began training for commission sales. On the job less than a month, I began bleeding.  On March 3rd I got the results from a vaginal biopsy: a rare cancer - the conventional  treatment is radiation; but radiation can cause cancer and has been known to damage nearby organs. In a subsequent exam the GYN radiologist confirmed the presence of a tumor. If the tumor grows, the treatment would be surgical removal of the cancer and surrounding organs including the bladder!

I researched various options, including radiation, before discovering Carla’s wellness center. Oasis of Hope would be $30,000 for 3 weeks plus additional for meds at home. Dr. Carlos Garcia at Utopia Wellness Clinic is $36,000 for 2 months of 2 hours 5 day/week. I learned that radiation damages DNA and, what often seems a quick healing results in a more potent cancer. Plus the abdomen holds many other vital organs which can be so badly damaged by scar tissue that surgery is required. I already have adjacent organs that are creating discomfort and not behaving the same since my hysterectomy.

I’m not afraid to die. I know where I’m going, but I have lots to live for and lots more to give to my family, to the world through my writing, to aspiring writers by facilitating writers workshops, and to the assisted living patients we visit with our dog as part of Canines for Christ ( www.k9forchrist.org) I'm ready for the next adventure, and, my prayer is, that my research, experience and treatment will help others.

I've reduced my goal to $15,000. I don't believe the original $35,000 will be necessary since I've opted for a much less expensive protocol with Carla Gilmore  - far less than she could competively charge. I'm hoping $10,000 will be enough, but we need to hit the cancer hard right now to stop it from growing.

Any amount will help. Dollars are made of pennies! I especially ask for your prayers. God is certainly able to provide a miracle. Regardless, I know good things will come from this because Jesus works all things together for good when we walk in His will (Romans 8:28)

Thank you for caring enough to read this and for your consideration. I know there are many needs crying for your money, but I promise to do my best to use your gift as wisely and expediantly as possible.

I had my follow-up conference and proposed protocol today with my cancer therapist, Carla Gilmore. I trust her incredible knowledge of the body and her love for the Lord. It's her obedience to Christ that keeps her fees low. Nevertheless, at today's visit I bought $480 of supplements and other vitamins, green blends for smoothies, etc. at Carla's cost! And, all my food has to be organic and primarily vegan. $325 so far for clinic appointments and our plan is for 3 treatments per week at least at the beginning. The concept is to strengthen my body at the molecular level so my T-cells and other resources can destroy the cancer - targeting the source instead of just the disease. I believe her approach will work well, but it's costly and time consuming - like another job with therapies that begin when I get up and end at bedtime. So, please continue to help if you can - even $5 or $10 add up and are a huge help. I truly cannot do this without you and I am so very grateful for all you've done already. You all are a blessing.

I have three appointments scheduled with Carla Gilmore ( www.lovealkalineliving.com) this week. She's soooo much less than the other alternatives ($30,000 for Oasis of Hope). As much as I'd hoped to go to Oasis, finding Carla was truly a divine leading (that I'll write about soon). Love Alkaline Living Wellness Clinic covers the first two appointments with $270. Then $85/ appointment thereafter. I'm following mostly a vegan diet and I'll keep you up to date on my protocol and therapies. And, all of you are the reason I'm able to do this. Thank you for your sacrifices. And, thank God for dedicated cancer specialists like Carla.

After my first visit I can't say enough positive about the Carla Gilmore's testing, counseling and alternative health services. My daughter is an RN and accompanied me, studies and practices a healthy life style, and she wants to fly back from New England to be tested and begin the regimen. Check out the videos at www.lovealkalineliving.com. After 10 minutes on the Bemer my blood looked clear and was no longer clumping. Another 15 minutes was on the bio-mat. The next day I felt awake and clean after only 5 hours sleep! I can't wait to go for my next appointment on Wednesday. Carla treats the whole body rather than targeting one area which is exactly what I believe I need. After all I've been diagnosed with 2 cancers within 8 months. There could be more, but I believe with God helping Carla and Carla helping me I'll be cancer free. Thank you sooo much for your generosity. I couldn't do it without you.

Why Not Use Radiation to Heal My Cancer? And, pay with insurance?
The more I learn, the more I believe there's a better possibility of beating cancer with natural and non-detrimental therapies.

RADIATION DAMAGES DNA & CAN CAUSE CANCER!
Google "Does radiation damage DNA" for lots of links.
Here's a quote from a clinical researcher.
“Ionising radiation probably causes all types of mutational damage,.. Showers of radiation chop up the genome causing lots of damage simultaneously. This seems to overwhelm the DNA repair mechanism in the cell, leading to the DNA damage we see.”

(According to Dr Sam Behjati, clinician researcher at the Sanger Institute and the Department of Paediatrics, University of Cambridge)

Click on the link below for an excellent synopsis of the argument against radiation as a healing/curing therapy:

Please help me get therapy that helps rebuild my immune system and defeats the growth of cancer cells. www.GoFundMe.com/BethsCancer

And please pray. God can heal through therapies, diet or a miracle! And, I'm up for the miracle!

I hope that you can understand my opinion, "I believe that in certain circumstances, the medical profession is only a traffic jam in our path" Con Amor
