Rodney W fight against cancer

Hi my name is Rodney Wells I have 3 wonderful kids and in November 2012 I was diagnosed with rectal cancer. I like most
People in the world that get such news in their life go through a whole gambit of emotions. After
Seeing several doctors all of whom basically had the same thing to say. Radiation, Chemo therapy
and surgery to remove my rectum. All this with a 10% chance to survive 5 years. After much time
At study and seeing an uncle basically die from the treatment of his cancer, well I decided that
I didn’t want my life to end that way. So I studied a lot it took some time which at this point
is somewhat of a regret. If my studies would have taken me to the place that I currently am a
Patient I believe that I would be through this stage of my life. I came across a place called
Envita which is located in Scottsdale Az. It is a big plus on the location because most people
have to travel to get the services they offer right here close to where I live. The reason I
decided to seek treatment here is because of the services they offer. One big difference is
they work on building your immune system up to help fight the cancer and not breaking it down
by littering your body with poison and hoping you live long enough to survive the cancer.
They also believe that there is no point getting rid of the cancer if you don't change the
Environment  to which the cancer lives in. In other words the cancer will just return at some
point because your body chemistry has not changed in which the cancer was conceived in. This
Is not to say they don't offer radiation or chemo therapy. They work with another doctor who offers
TOMO radiation and Envita offers GPT or IPT which is insulin potentiating therapy. It is a low
Dose chemo that offers a more targeted approach to chemo with very little side effects. TOMO
Is also a targeted radiation with little side effects compared to traditional therapies. I have
Been in treatment for about 8 weeks now with the first 6 weeks being immune building. The good news
Is that my body is responding just to the immune therapies. I did start the TOMO radiation about
4 weeks ago and I can see a difference in my systems. I started IPT 2 weeks ago. All my blood work
Has all been positive and my body is responding. Here is the issue since what I am doing isn’t
Part of the main stream all money has to be paid up front. I am told that insurance will help
with some bills and I have been working with a 3rd party biller to get that submitted to my insurance
but of course I haven’t seen a dime back. So far I have spent my savings and all I could get from retirement
for treatment. I am too the point where I am almost out of money. I am a proud man who doesn’t
want to ask but at this point I really don't have many options. Know 50k is a lot of money and a
very high goal but that is the kind of money that will allow me to finish radiation and chemo
and continue for several weeks after with immune therapy to remove the poisons from my system.
I am also available for any questions or if you know someone who is struggling with the same
Cancer or needs info on a terrific place for treatment I believe in I am always available.
Thanks and GOD bless.Quick update The rectal tumor is on the run. We believe that the tumor may be gone but scans have been scetchy until I heal up from the TOMO radiation. Still have the tumors in my liver though. We will get them next. Thanks
