My Holistic Cancer Journey

My name is Sherri and I'm a mother of three teenage children.  Five days before Christmas 2017, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and everything in my life changed.  I had been studying health and nutrition for almost seven years at that point, so I knew right away that I would not do the standard surgery, chemo, and radiation, and that I would do everything I could to approach this as holistically and as naturally as I could. 

There are several wonderful, natural therapies that have been proven to destroy cancer. The problem is that none of them are covered by insurance.  I am definitely not in a place financially that I can afford anything extra in my budget.  I started a new career a few months ago, which means starting over financially and building up again.  My main goal is to keep my children's lives as normal as possible as I navigate my diagnosis and cut out additional expenses wherever else I can.  I'm doing my best to keep a smile on my face for them and trust that God will guide me on the right path.

I have talked to conventional doctors, surgeons, naturopathic doctors, hybrid doctors (those that practice traditional medicine but offer some natural options as well), and cancer treatment facilities. On top of that, I've read several books on the subject.

I am most drawn to the local practices that offer all natural/holistic therapies, but the recommended therapies require extensive cost and time during the workday.  I’ve been doing these therapies for three months, but I’m running out of money to continue doing this, and since there is no time frame for how long it needs to be done, I couldn't continue.  

My next step is a one-time therapy, now called a “Cancer Vaccine”.  They have had great success with this therapy, close to 100% success rate at my doctor's office.  And although it’s a fairly new treatment, at least in the U.S., I feel that it’s my next step.  The cost for the first phase of this treatment is $9,700.  I may be done after this, but if I need a booster down the road, it will be another $4,500.  I know it seems expensive, but compared to surgery and chemo, it’s not much.  Also, when this same therapy is done in other countries, it can cost up to $30,000, and I’m told in California they charge close to $20,000 for just the first treatment.  I'm grateful to have the option to try it for less that $10,000.

I am now handing it over to God. 

I can't even imagine collecting enough money to make this possible, but with Him all things are possible. If it is meant to be, then it will happen. If it doesn't happen, then I will know that another road is meant for me. Either way, anything I collect will all go toward my medical bills, which are already piling up.   I have a private FaceBook page where I detail out my journey and I would love anyone that donates to follow that, if they so choose.  Leave me a message and I'd be happy to share links with you.

I am so grateful for every single penny that might be donated. I thank you for even taking the time to read my story. Your prayers alone would be a wonderful blessing to me. Thank you.
