On November 1, 2019, I received the devastating diagnosis of Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Breast Cancer. I was in shock and disbelief because I never imagined getting that phone call. I have been on an emotional roller coaster over the last few months. I have been to countless doctors appointments, spoken to many doctors, received tests and scans, and am now in the position to make a decision regarding my treatment and my future. The doctor's proposed treatment plan includes five months of chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation. All of the mentioned treatments are toxic and could leave me with residual effects in my future. I cannot picture myself being sick for the next year of my life and beyond and worrying about the trauma my body would experience from the toxic treatments.
The treatment plan the doctors have set forth for me is not the treatment plan that I feel is best for me. I have researched alternative methods to treat cancer and discovered that what we eat can either heal our bodies or hurt our bodies. I have spent countless hours researching non-toxic treatments for cancer and how a plant-based diet along with herbs can naturally heal the body. I have transitioned into eating a plant based diet, detoxed my body, and started an herbal regimen. I am intrigued by the fact that our bodies can naturally heal itself just by following a plant based diet and taking the appropriate herbs. I am not intrigued by the fact that no doctors I have seen have mentioned how important diet is in naturally healing the body. I have been told about what medications I will need and more medications to off set side effects and more medication I will need to take for the next five to ten years of my life.
My research has landed me at discovering that there are places that offer non-toxic cancer treatments but these centers are not in America. Hope4Cancer is a cancer treatment center in Cancun, Mexico that focuses on healing the mind, body, and spirit using non-toxic treatments. Hope4Cancer believes that a well-rounded treatment plan not only treats the disease but heals the person. The center is an outpatient treatment facility and they recommend you stay for three weeks to receive the recommended treatments. Considering this center is out of the country, the treatments are not covered by insurance. The cost is approximately $50,000. This is an astronomical amount but there is no price on my health. I am excited to go to Hope4Cancer because their philosophy aligns with the type of care I would like to receive. I would like to naturally CURE my body and be able to live a long, healthy life for my girls. My plan is to go to Hope4Cancer at the end of January.
I am positive, optimistic, and faithful. I believe a positive mind is the first step to healing. This dark disease can easily take you to dark places and my plan is not to let that side win. My two beautiful daughters are my motivation to keep pushing and stay positive to beat this nasty disease.
I am usually the person that others call on for help but the time has come for me to lean on others and ask for help. I have a few requests:
1. Donate if you can (any amount helps)
2. Pray for me and my family
3. Share this with your network to help me reach my goal
My journey does not end when I return from Mexico. I will have a long road ahead of me to continue leading a healthy lifestyle. Your generous donations will cover my stay in Mexico, airfare, organic foods, and the herbs and supplements I will need moving forward.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your prayers and support!
I am especially grateful for my husband who has been my biggest supporter during this time!!!!
I WILL WIN!!!!
