In the spring of 2016 I was surprisingly diagnosed with a stage 4 cancerous tumor on my vocal chord. This was devastating news as I have been a professional singer and songwriter my entire adult life and had always been exceptionally physically healthy. The shocking prognosis was grim, with the doctors telling me that I had a year or 2 to live unless he did a heavy regiment of chemotherapy , radiation and or extensive surgery to completely remove my vocal chords. Even with these extreme treatments, the doctors told him me chances for a complete recovery were under 50%. As well as the list of potential side effects from these treatments that were extensive and frightening (to put it mildly).
In my heart I felt my intuition screaming. This is not correct. You are not meant to die or to poison yourself through this experience. You are meant to use this as an opportunity to learn, heal, cleanse, improve and evolve. My partner Alexis and I began doing massive research into alternative methods of healing cancer that did not involve attacking and potentially damaging one's own immune system, and the facilities that do this type of healing. We decided on a natural strategy of healing beginning with a series of diet and lifestyle changes and an 11 week stay in an alternative medicine cancer clinic in Tijuana Mexico, in addition to an extensive natural supplement protocol. My friend Tina started a gofundme campaign and I was truly blessed and uplifted by the support I received from my community. That support allowed me to go to treatment in Mexico and then be able to afford to continue alternative medical treatments here in the United States for a year.
It has been a year and a half since my initial diagnosis and I am at the point where I have to another community fundraiser in order to afford my supplement and medicine protocols, doctor visits, organic food and basic means of supporting my family through this period of healing in which I am physically unable to work a traditional job. My situation is still very urgent and serious , the tumor is still there , and is partially blocking my windpipe and is creating a potential for me to asphyxiate if I choke on something. The traditional doctors are telling me I should have a full laryngectomy (removal of the vocal box). This operation would leave me permanently creating out of a hole in my neck, I would be unable to play harmonica, speak or sing. Once again my intuition is telling me that there is a way through this without permanently disfiguring or poisoning my body. I have hired an amazing team of some of the finest alternative natural doctors and cancer specialists on the west coast and they feel that I can still still manage and treat this situation with proper care and discipline and without getting the operation. I believe in the power of our bodies to heal ourselves. I believe that I am here for a reason and have great work to do in this beautiful world. I believe there is a way for me to come through this challenge a better and more complete person than I was before.
My goal in this next year is to become the clearest , cleanest and best person that I have ever been. I want to have the support to continue to completely purify my body and mind. I want to focus on health, joyfulness, creativity and family. I want to focus on the future that I want to see in this world and work towards that daily. By donating you are helping to save my life. You are helping to make sure that I am here and can continue to raise my 4 year old son and continue to create art and share it with the world. Thank you so much.Listen to Blane's Music - Click Here
