Raised by 560 people in 61 months
Anyone who has ever met Mikey (Quinlan) knows what a personality he has; funny, smart, caring and infectious with his laugh. His personality is that of a wise old man in a body of a goofy 4 year old. On November 10th their world was turned upside down, a simple doctor visit turned into a day that will change their lives as they know it. My nephew was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. A word, one word, that was never heard before immediately can send chills down your spine. Through prayer and contact with amazing people Mikey was immediately put in contact with a specialized doctor for his condition and location of the tumor. Amanda and Mike (Mikey's parents) are currently at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York , with a doctor who is both amazing and encouraging. This will be a long up hill road and they will need the support of friends and family to help them get through this extremely devastating time. At this point in time they are asking for time to get a grasp on the situation, but I was told to inform everyone they appreciate all prayers and concern. As Mikey's aunt I am trying to put together this Rally to help support my sister Amanda and Mike although there is insurance; due to the stage and rare type of cancer the hospital/treatment needed is all considered out of network, so the bills will be overwhelming and fast coming. Besides for the medical bills being extensive; the daily expenses of travel, food, gas, and housing are all going to be substantial as well. My sister has taken leave from work as well as my mother to be able to help her and comfort her grandson and even eventually help accompany her to and from the city. Mike is currently able to be out of work and staying with them; so for now funds are needed for their daily expenses. At this point we are in dire need of a filtration system at the house for when Mikey comes home, we need to have a special HEPA/ Pathogen filter installed due to his high concentration level of chemo. We appreciate any and all donations that can be made to help them concentrate on Mikey and the care he needs. I will be updating the page as often as I can to keep you all of you informed of his current situation. On behalf of Amanda, Mike and the rest of the family we want to thank you for your prayers and support.

What great news. Although I was confident, it's still the best news to hear officially. Little Mikey, his mom, dad and family have worked and prayed hard for this news. Now maybe, at least for a little while, they can relax and enjoy the rest of summer with their little inspiration. Thanks for sharing.

Sending loving and healing prayers to Mikey. I urge the family to seriously reconsider the surgery and consult with Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez (who is in New York; http://www.dr-gonzalez.com). Dr. Gonzalez has a track record of even terminal pancreatic cancer patients thriving decades later. He was classically trained by the doctor who invented bone marrow transplants, but his journey led him to an enzyme and dietary approach that has shown remarkable success. See this page for juicing guidelines (http://cancercompassalternateroute.com/diet/juicing-choosing-the-right-juicer-and-recipes), and note the link at the bottom where Drew Woodland was healed of stage 4 neuroblastoma with juicing and supplements (http://cancercompassalternateroute.com/testimonials-2/stage-4-neuroblastoma-of-a-child-healed-with-natural-therapies). At the end of the article click on the free ebook written by Drew's mother with additional info about the story. Overcoming cancer requires detoxification; cutting out lymph nodes is the exact opposite of what needs to be done. Here is a simple yet very powerful anti-cancer protocol: On the 5-21-2013 episode of the Robert Scott Bell health radio program (show notes here; click the link in the first sentence for the audio: http://www.robertscottbell.com/blog/chris-barr-reversing-cancer-w-food-grown-selenium-chromium-silicon-b6-probiotics-liam-scheff-on-peak-oil-secrets-nuclear-saud-more) (other RSB show archives here: http://radio.naturalnews.com/Archive-RobertScottBell.asp), nutritional researcher/historian Christopher Barr discusses his cancer protocol. At 51:35 he says to use the following four times daily: 5 selenium from Innate Response 3 silica from Alta Health 1 GTF chromium from Innate Response 1 cup of Can-Gest Tea from Alta Health Add B6 and probiotics for more support. One elderly man refused to follow the full protocol or to quit his unhealthy habits (smokes like a chimney); he only takes the selenium. Despite this, he has halted tumor activity and is still thriving years later. Here are more details about the protocol components: Selenium is very protective against toxins, including radiation. I've heard reference to a medical study where 19,000 people were monitored over a period of 17 years; half were given selenium. They had practically zero cancer, while the other half had a typical 30% or so cancer rate. Per Chris Barr on the Sunday, 11-17-2013 episode of the RSB show (http://www.gcnlive.com/CMS/index.php/archivespage?showCode=36) about 39 minutes into the second hour he says that Dr. Joe Vincent researched all the forms of selenium on the market and found that the Innate Response Selenium is twice as bioavailable as the next best. It contains other whole food and botanical ingredients plus probiotics and enzymes for better absorption, and is 100-300 times more bioavailable than seleno-methionine. The bad synthetic form is sodium-selonite. The Japanese get 300-600 mcg per day in their diet. You may take over 1000 mcg per day if dealing with cancer or lots of radiation; otherwise, it sounds like 400-600 mcg is reasonable. Another cancer researcher concluded the best form of selenium is seleno-selenium. It's very inexpensive (http://www.swansonvitamins.com/healthy-origins-seleno-excell-selenium-200-mcg-180-caps). This is the trade-marked SelenoExcell (as High Selenium Yeast) food form of selenium by Healthy Origins. http://selenoexcell.com/faq says that it is not just seleno-methionine but also other forms such as seleno-cysteine. The Innate Response selenium contains complimentary ingredients such as enzymes and probiotics that should make it very bioavailable. You can get selenium in Brazil nuts and sunflower seeds as well. Silica (silicon) prevents the spread of cancer by building up collagen. You find silica in shiny vegetables such as cucumbers or bell peppers, or better yet go with a quality food grown source such as from Alta Health or a liquid form from Orgono Silica (http://www.orgonosilica.com). Learn much more about all that silica does for you: On a 40 minute segment of the June 23, 2011 episode of the Robert Scott Bell internet radio show (http://radio.naturalnews.com/download.asp?fileid=321), at the 1:18:40 minute mark, Christopher Barr states that supplementation with a whole food form of silicon is more important for bones and ligaments than calcium. He covers a lot of benefits of silica, including preventing cancer from spreading.
