My beautiful mother was just diagnosed with multiple myeloma cancer. Multiple myeloma is cancer that starts in the plasma cells in bone marrow. Bone marrow is the soft, spongy tissue found inside most bones. It helps make blood cells. Plasma cells help your body fight infection by producing proteins called antibodies.

She has been battling hepatitis-c since 1987 successfully until now, it may or may not be the cause of the cancer but it has deteriorated her liver to a state that there is few options on the types of drugs or chemo she can take for the tumors.

What we are facing now is a tough battle of what we can do and can't do and the reality of how much it has spread throughout her body. In my mom's true spirit we will be pursuing all avenues including holistic healing through the Gerson Diet and due to the severity/urgency of tumor growth over the last two weeks we can't exclude convential therapies from the process.
 
My mom has dedicated her life to helping and healing people through Reiki and Counseling. Later in life while working two jobs and raising me and my siblings she graduated from the University of Montana with a BSW then completed her Masters while working at the community mental health center. After moving to Phoenix, she went to work at Beatitudes as a companion for elderly and sick people. In both Montana and Phoenix she has been a Hospice volunteer.

We are looking for support and help from Friends and Family to help us pay for the start of the process of discovering what we can do for Tumor removal, chemo-maintenance, quality of life and to help supply the required dietary and equipment needs for the Gerson Therapy.

Last weekend was spent in the hospital, being admitted through the ER. My sodium level was critically low, as well as my blood pressure. The Dr. will order new labs and re-evaluate the chemo cocktail for this week. I am in awe of the love and support of my family and friends. Their compassion and sacrifice is immeasurable. Each day, every moment they are my support and strength. I can do this only because of them. I am finally realizing how much I am loved.

Conventional treatment, chemo, began last Friday and will continue for 4-6 months with PET scans every 4 weeks to determine if the tumors are responding and shrinking. The plan is to eventually have stem cell therapy. That will involve a stay at Mayo Clinic killing the remaining bone marrow and harvesting "cleaned" cells for the transplant. A Norwalk juicer is on it's way and there's lots of reading and videos and learning about the Gerson Protocol which is the gold standard of the Naturopathic therapy for cancer treatment. Doing this one day at a time...Thank you everyone!
