Dream's Aggressive Lymphoma Fight

Xiao “Dream” Pei is a wonderful mother (pictured above with her family).  She and her husband, Brian Nomi, have three children, Judy age 13, Rebecca age 12, and Matthew age 7. 

Dream is warm, insightful and caring.  She always takes time to consult with me.  I see her on a regular basis when she brings Matthew to my office.  Dream is collaborative, full of great ideas, and loving.  She is easy to work with, responsible, patient and kind.  Dream is very careful about the food her family eats and their environment.  She researches treatments and supplements in depth.  Her knowledge of naturopathic healthcare is beyond some professionals’ experience. 

She carefully balances what is best for her children with encouragement, drive and research for the best solutions.  For example, Matthew has autism and was non-verbal.  Dream never stopped fighting for him and searched the world for a program that would help him.  She devotes hours to implementing and managing his program and his care, in addition to caring for her other children and husband.  Matthew has become verbal over the last two years and is making significant progress.     

Then everything changed suddenly.  Last week, Dream went to the Emergency Room for lower abdominal pain that would not subside.  She ended up being diagnosed with B cell non-Hodgkin Lymphoma cancer.  It is an aggressive type.  Within days, the pain became excruciating.

The news is shocking to everyone who knows her.  She is a very health-conscious person, healthy eater and physically active.  Suddenly, she doesn’t look like herself.   

After careful consideration, Dream and her husband decided to choose a cancer treatment out of the country beginning this week.  The treatment is very expensive and she has had to hire assistance for her home and children while she is no longer able to take care of her household in the way she has previously. 

She feels confident she will win this battle, but the past week and a half has been extremely difficult.  Dream has fought so hard for others.  Please help her in this fight for her life.  Her family needs her.  The world needs more people like Dream.   

Your prayers and support are greatly appreciated.
