The Rocca's Breast Cancer Journey

In 2012 Christine was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer after being told numerous times by doctors that she was fine.  After finding out she was NOT fine, there was 2 years of chemotherapy, 3 surgeries, a bilaterial mastectomy, radiation and a serious infection that landed her in the hosptial in April 2015 of which her body was septic and she almost didn't make it.  The hospital stay in April was 2 months after finding out that the breast cancer had metastisized to her bones making her now Stage 4 and terminal.  For Stage 4, there is NO cure. 

Needless to say, their family has been torn apart in ways never though possible.  But...they are happy to say that they are still all here and loving on each other even more.  

Still, the countless doctors appointments, still ongoing and forever, as well as the emotional and financial hits this has taken on their family has been hard. 

This is a Go Fund Me to help them with the mounting doctor fees now and to continue indefinitely. 

They would be so grateful for any help you could give.

This is not an easy thing to ask and has been humbling.  The Rocca's have loved to always give back to others, so asking for any help is tough but would be so appreciated.

God bless you!
Bill, Christine and Tyler

It's been a week since I got home from Mexico & I've really just needed the time to figure out my aftercare program. It's quite a bit of things to do but I'm happy to do them since I've been feeling so much better!! Since so many of u have been inquiring here is a rundown of what treatments I was personally doing. (Each patient has a different protocol based on their type of cancer).
High dose Vit C & B-17, Rigvir, Coffee enemas w/ozone, UVBI, Hyperbaric chamber, Hyperthermia, Near Infrared Red Light Sauna, Vegetarian diet, no gluten w/wild caught fish allowed & LED Photon Therapy. As of today I have lost 20 pounds! My cholesterol levels are better than normal, my prayer life has significantly improved, I have energy & am feeling very hopeful! Went to see my oncologist yesterday & am waiting to get my new TMs. If they are lower that would be awesome but my body is telling me I'm doing the right thing. I totally miss all my friends in Mexico but am looking forward to going back in February for a follow up. Included with my after care program for a year. Thank u to all my beautiful friends of which made it possible for me to experience this & to get well. You, my lovelies, are amazing. ❤️

Here are some pics from recent days. I leave soon and I'm super nervous about being away from my anti cancer safe zone. But I SO miss my family and friends. I have learned some amazing life changing habits and have learned how to drop some not so healthy habits. Cholesterol down from 218 to 175!!

Life is but a process of which the journey never ends. Having happy and positive people in your life is a MUST!

I haven't been social media for a little bit & now I can see why! What the heck? People are STILL protesting, many w/violence & anarchy?! I'm SO grateful to be disengaged from all the toxicity! It's fine to disagree & voice it in a healthy manner but this is just sad & disappointing. It's like grown up temper tantrums!
Anyway, I digress. Meanwhile in "cancer land". I'm half way through treatment w/mixed feelings. I'm feeling better then I've probably felt since I was diagnosed w/cancer!! So that's the amazing news! The hard part is missing my family & friends but I've made some lifelong friends here & I got a special visit from someone who drove 10 hours to be w/me for less then 48 hours! Bill!! (See pic, lol). He had to leave today & after he left I cried like a baby but then picked myself back up & headed to the hyperthermia "pizza oven". Nothing like a good sweat. Thank u to my sister Jenni Sims for watching Tyler! I KNOW he had a blast visiting his cousins. The doctors were telling us how important laughter is for ur health & brings more serotonin to ur brain so promise me u will do something that will make u laugh today & tomorrow & then share it w/me. Love & laughter!
