My star sign is a cancerian I'm 31 years old this year..
I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis when I was 15. My mother and sister also suffers this disease.
I was put on imuran purinethol to treat it for 10 years. I also did a trial drug imapticept and cycloxplorin twice. All immune suppressant drugs, designed to help?
In 2011 November 14, I was rushed to st George public hospital emergency.
I had a bowel blockage.
When I woke I was told I have a stoma on my right abdo and stage 4 bowel cancer which has spread to the peritoneal - the lining that covers your abdominal lining. They said this type of cancer was Incurable!
Immediately they advised I must start chemotherapy or I would die within 12 months or less.
They started a 12 week cycle of chemo called folfox. They said if this didn't work by half way treatment that I was incurable once more and that they had hoped this treatment would shrink the tumours to give me 'more time' The treatment did not work after half session, they advised to continue chemotherapy and that my time was now more limited to weeks.
The confusion and desperation that set - why continue a treatment that you have been told is making you more ill, diminishing your quality of life and provides no hope?
My family turned to natural therapies against medical advise.. this is where hope was regained and miracles occurred for us.
I went completely natural diet plan, nothing artificial, intravenous immune boosting therapies, I travelled the globe to reach the best produce and medicine I could research, sceptical?
3 months later - re scan.. I was told my incurable untreatable cancer had changed.. yet they could not specify how or how much..
My hair stopped falling out, my appetite came back, I was looking and feeling much better. They then came back to me and said it was a miracle that there was a change and that because cancer had spread to peritoneal if I didn't operate I would die but with improved changes I qualified to operate. Again I let fear take over and went ahead with surgery despite my positive results.
I had this operation in May 2012.
It was my biggest regret. They poured hot chemo on all my organs for three hours. It took me one month in ICU and then one month in Ward and I felt worse then ever before, I discharged myself against medical advise. It was only at that point I truely started to recover! The risk of this surgery alone is a 5 year life expectancy due to trauma of the procedure. Your guaranteed to get the cancer come back as a result of damage by hot chemo. But the choice was - you die within months or you win 5 years with surgery..
After my biopsy results came back I was told that no cancer was found in tests and that as a miracle my cancer had vanished pre opp.
In this surgery they removed all of my large intestine, appendix, galbladder, ovaries,tubes and most lof small intestine. Funnily enough - along with my organs they lost my medical records at the hospital!!!!
In 2014 I felt a lump in my groin. They insisted on me having a biopsy and I refused. August 2015 I had a biopsy after much pressure from doctors. There had been no growth or change In that lump until after the biopsy. The results came back cancerous and also the lump began to grow 1cm every month once it had been touched. Feeling let down by doctors once more!! Curiosity killed the cat they say..
July 2016 I became very unwell and was throwing up. I was told I had a bowel obstruction. November 2016 I had an emergency operation. I had not been able to eat from August till November and was throwing up daily after a table spoon of rice only causing me to lose 30kg in this time.
They had proposed I have a second peritoneal surgery - 10 hours and hot chemo to 'save me' I refused this and opted to trust my original surgeon. His surgery lasted only 5 hours and my heart had stopped 4 times during this procedure. Had I trusted the monster before - I would not be here today.
The end result - tumours had spread to the lining of the small intestine causing narrowing and blockage. The lining.. not inside the bowel like my original cancer and not like typical bowel cancer.
Most was removed but not all. The lump in the groin had put pressure on my veins causing a blood clot in all veins in right leg from groin to feet. I'm now on clexane blood thinners twice a day and risk of heart attack. It took 9 months of me reporting a swollen leg and being told I'm young and to walk it off before action being taken to diagnose a clot in my entire leg!!
The tumours had been slow growth since commencing natural therapies, but after much weight loss from 70kg to 43kg and digestive issues my cancer markers had become unsteady. I now require constant hydration as a result of surgeries I have almost no intestine.. what goes in must come out.. too quickly!!
They started an anti body treatment 8 weeks ago (August 2017) they said it's special, different to chemo.. not harmful.. in 4 single sessions I went from 43kg to 35kg, unable to walk and barely eat again.
They advised treatment wasn't working.. more like it was killing me just like chemo once did! it wasn't working and had made cancer worse by 30%.
My natural therapies from 2011, they are not all things I can do this time, my situation has become much more complex.
My belief - what has kept me alive is my fight, my unwillingness to give up, my determination to live! I'm not ready!! I have been told since 2011 that I'm dead! That I won't survive, I spent all I have on natural treatments, I indulged and travelled and said I have a bucket list - I have a right to live - I have a right to be normal and not stop living because Cancer came into my life. I don't regret my choices, I'm proud of them. But not over a year off work and not for the first time due to health.. I need to research further, I need more funds then my credit cards will allow, I need help and support and my pride has stopped me asking for so very long.. but I can't let that stop me asking for help now. I found a new treatment that works and costs more then I can afford and by passes my digestive issues which in itself is a miracel..
The modern medical world has cut me off and I come to you for an chance to try something else.. please consider me. This new treatment is located in the state of Queensland, I am located in New South Wales, I will be required to stay for extended visits and this will require funds for not only treatment but transport and accomodation, the treatment itself is Hyperthermia heat therapy, proven to heat and kill cancer cells, the clinic I have located also offers other treatments to help prevent me losing any further muscle mass as I am now literally skin and bone and struggling to walk even to the bathroom at home. I experienced all these physical changes only in the last couple of weeks and hence my plee so desperate and urgent now. I don't have any time to lose, I have also found a treatment from Saudi Arabia for durian fruit concentration capsuals but again costly and MMS2 another natural treatment from queensland. My intravenous vitamin C that boots my immune system costs me $220 twice a week if I can afford it which I can't at the moment and have not done in weeks. I predict to be able to restart that alone in 3 weeks time based on finances.. again time..
Please believe in miracles and believe this will work for me.. it's been a 6 year battle where I have been told I should of been dead 6 years ago.. but I'm not. I believe it's in natures cures that I am here and I don't want to miss out now!
This is one of my last options left to help myself and I prey you wish to be apart of it!
