USMC VET Seeks cancer treatmen

Hi, I'm Calvin Hopper, I'm 48 years old and this is my life.  I served in the United State Marine Corp in the early 80's.  In the spring of 83 I was stationed at Camp LeJeune North Carolina, this being a time in history when the United States would see it's largest water contamination incident in our history.  The result of generations unknowing drinking the water at the base will go unknown for decades.  Today we are fully aware of the ramifications.  Government studies show contamination level 4000 times what is considered carcinogenic, as the result 12 types of cancer have been linked to the water one being lung cancer.   January 21, 2013 I , my diagnosis was given, stage 2 lung cancer.  Everything stopped! I had always worked hard, taken great pride in my physic and lived a good life.  How could this happen to me, this was not what I expected to hear.  I had my lung removal surgery February 2013 and went through months of chemo thinking we had caught it early..  We didn't it had spread to my adrenal glands and now I'm stage 4.  In October 2013 I started some pretty serious chemo, 6 rounds almost killed me.  They say I'm resilient, I say I have a strong will to live the rest of my life.   Fast forward to now and I'm looking great, feeling great and ready to kick cancers behind.  Alternative cancer therapies are on the rise for their success rates with different types of cancer where traditional doctors have given up hope.  One of these therapies has a success rate for curing small cell adneocarcinoma lung cancer, my cancer.  I believe this therapy is my chance at living and Dr. James Forsythe at the Century Wellness Clinic is the man to overseeing my recovery
