Help me fight these tumors & Encourage Healing

Hi Everyone, In 2016 I had to have a tumor  removed surgically (photo'd in profile pic). The journey was not easy to say the least, everything that the doctors tried, my body rejected but after the surgery I was hopeful that everything would be great and I'd never have to deal with the issue again. But here we are in 2020, the tumors have reappeared and I'm fighting yet again :-(. Not only am I fighting them again but they have come back in different forms and are causing major complications with my health. In a matter of months I've had to worry about my blood levels  dropping, iron transfusions, and possible infertility to name a few. My doctor is suggesting immediate surgery AGAIN to remove the most problematic tumor and although it will immediately get rid of the tumor, there are so many risks attached to the surgery, it's invasive and just like this time, there is no guarantee that they will not return. 

I feel like I've tried EVERYTHING. For everyone who knows me, I am always the positive, encouraging, optimistic person but  I would be lying if I said at times this is not discouraging and draining to keep having to go through. It has taken so much out of me and everyday is unpredictable, but I try to speak life into my situation and remind myself that everything will be alright.  I prayed and prayed and prayed and researched and researched & an alternative treatment was presented that will not only be less invasive but can eliminate the tumors all together and has a higher chance of preventing them from coming back. The medical system is set-up to treat not cure and this unfortunately puts people like me through a viscous cycle of paying and paying to temporarily treat instead of attacking the root cause of where these tumors come from. I'm VERY private, so this is alot for me but being a voice for those who may be going through the same thing is necessary. I've thought long and hard about this & it took everything in me to make it less about what others will think and more about my healing and helping others heal. I am on a mission to not only do what I possibly can to eliminate these tumors but encourage others on their journey to healing.
