Carroll Bundy, husband of Jane Bundy, father of 5, grandfather of 6, was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2011. Jane, being a licensed Holistic Nutritionist, immediately began an alternative treatment on Carroll called the Gerson Protocol and they continued with doctor’s check-ups and tumor monitoring.
At one point, the Gerson treatment had helped shrink the tumor to less than 1/4 its original size. After Carroll was confident he felt well enough, he took a position at work commuting back and forth between Pittsburgh and Virginia, but he was not able to keep up with his Gerson treatments due to his work schedule. After a year of constant traveling, his check-up revealed the cancer had grown. Carroll decided to have the surgery to remove the tumor while it was still confined to his colon. When Carroll woke up from surgery, the doctor told him and Jane the surgery went very well and they were able to successfully remove all of the tumor. A few months later, Carroll began to have fluid build-up in his abdomen causing a loss of appetite and severe constipation. He needed weekly fluid draining’s and his weight dropped over 50lbs. Upon further investigation and lots of paperwork, the sad truth was revealed, the tumor was never fully removed.
In those few months, the cancer had spread to his abdomen and lymph nodes. He began immediate chemo treatments. Jane also used natural treatments to relieve the chemo side effects and had Carroll continue detoxing to reduce chemo buildup. After his chemo was complete, his Oncologist recommended him to go to John Hopkins Hospital for a procedure that could make him cancer free! In the meantime, Carroll was feeling so motivated by the news, he was able to participate in his Church’s mission’s trip to New Mexico and he took Jane and his grandchildren on a mini vacation. Unfortunately, he never receive a call from John Hopkins to set-up his evaluation for the procedure. His Oncologist sent his records to John Hopkins several times. Carroll got his medical records and sent them as well. After several attempts to reach John Hopkins, Carroll and his oncologist never received a response.
After a short time, Carroll began showing signs of the cancer growing again. He began losing weight, having severe constipation, and loss of appetite. A trip to the emergency room for pain confirmed accelerated cancer growth. New rounds of stronger chemo treatments were ordered. During his first treatment, he had an anaphylactic response and he was rushed to the ER by ambulance. His treatment options were greatly diminished after that. Due to his body’s negative response, the doctors gave him 2 options; a chemo pill that is so toxic it could cause blindness, epileptic seizures, esophagus damage, intestinal perforations, sever liver damage, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, etc. or hospice to keep him comfortable until he passes.
All the while, medical bills are continuing to increase, Jane has stepped down as a manager at her job in order to care for Carroll day and night and thankfully Carroll’s job has kept him on work disability since his second attempt at chemo failed, but that is still only 40% of his normal paycheck. Carroll has gone through numerous surgeries, medications, hospital stays, and treatments. Even with insurance the co-pays for scans alone cost Carrol and Jane anywhere from $300-$1000 depending on which one is requested by doctors.
Since 2011, Carroll has proven to be a strong fighter in this war with cancer. The entire family is comforted by God’s amazing grace and determined to help him win. Thank you all for your love, prayers, time and support. May God’s will be done and he be glorified through it all.
Psalm 23:4-6 New International Version (NIV)
4 Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
