The summer of 2011, my brother Josh at 15 years old, was diagnosed with Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans, a malignant tumor in his leg. After the tumor was surgically removed, the cancer spread into multiple tumors. Josh underwent months of radiation, chemotherapy and multiple surgeries with no avail. In 2013, we were informed the cancer had mutated into Fibrosarcoma, a rare and more dangerous cancer. Then, sadly in December 2013 his cancer spread into his abdominal region. Doctors from Driscoll Children's Hospital and MD Anderson informed us that the rare mutated cancer was spreading and conventional therapies were not working. My mother was told he had only a few months to live. But, we were not giving up! Our mother had no choice but to search elsewhere…”alternative treatments”. She was referred to Dr. Abdo, a nutritionist who practices Naturopathy. Josh was placed under his care and has been showing some improvement. Sad to say, the natural alternative treatments are not regulated by the FDA and the insurance companies will not cover the cost. Dr. Abdo has gone as far as not charging my mother for his services, though, the herbal supplements and medical supplies used to care for Josh are expensive.
Josh is now 18 and he has been a trooper through all this. He is bedridden and has lost a lot of weight along with dealing with pain. We’re hoping this natural treatment will give him his strength back and allow him to walk again! We pray for his healing and recovery and hope for the best. We appreciate all your prayers and support.
