Debbie's Cancer Treatment

Let me tell you about this beautiful, compassionate woman, Debbie. She is a clinical social worker, who has for many years, given of herself to help others both in work and through her church. Debbie has improved the lives of at-risk teens, foster children, and is currently working as a hospice social worker. She sits with patients and their family members as they are dying, offering guidance and comfort.

Debbie now needs our help. Two years ago she was diagnosed with a Stage III very rare form of cancer -Leiomyosarcoma.. A huge tumor was removed at that time. Debbie lost an adrenal gland but the surgeon was able to save her kidney, aorta, pancreas, and intestines,  to which the tumor had adhered. Chemotherapy and radiation were deemed to be ineffective against this rare sarcoma as doctor's feared that cells were elsewhere since the sarcoma had metastatic activity.

Because chemotherapy was considered to be ineffective, Debbie began holistic treatment, which was successful in keeping the cancer from growing for a period of time.  A recent liver biopsy has shown the cancer has multiplied and is most likely throughout her body. The oncologist has given her 2 yrs or less to live.

 Although chemotherapy and radiation is not effective against this Sarcoma, medical insurance will not cover alternative treatment programs.The current body of Homeopathic medicine agrees that treatment should include a variety of modalities designed to increase immune system functioning, increase the body's ability to recognize and attack the cancer cells, while leaving as many healthy cells of the body intact.

Debbie’s goal is to raise funds for aggressive alternative treatments that can again place the cancer cells in dormancy, or better yet, shrink or eradicate the cells. Please help us support her. The world is a better place with Debbie able to continue spreading her loving and compassionate presence with others.
