Our beloved Michael Howden, was diagnosed with cancer at the base of his tongue in June of 2017.
If you know Michael, you know of his deep love of God, respect for Nature, and his faith in natural medicine. We have been in San Francisco for nine months now, researching, and working with various naturopaths and with Michael's teacher, who practices traditional Chinese medicine in Oakland.
We have received considerable support so far, from Michael's family, and help in a variety of ways from friends who love him here in California and back home, on Maui. We are SO VERY THANKFUL for the prayers and the gifts we have received on this journey so far.
Up until now, we have kept this matter mostly private and have been reluctant to ask for financial help. However, we have come to a point now where we realize that we need to let the community in on this, and are asking for your help.
Some of the best hospitals for alternative and innovative cancer care are located in Germany, Switzerland, and Mexico. We have chosen a Hospital called Hope4Cancer, in Baha Mexico. We have confidence in the Doctors there and the treatments offered. The cost will be 42,000 dollars, all-inclusive. We need to go there immediately.
As his family, we know that Michael belongs to many communities and has touched many lives with his love, generosity of spirit, and his dedication to the Earth.
Please help him now, if you can. If it is not a good time to share financial resources, prayers are wonderful, and much appreciated. Please spread the word to anyone who may want to help this lovely man recover and heal.
