Our mom, Jeanina is 84 years young and an angel on earth… she shares kindness and love with everyone she meets. Her closeness with God is her foundation for her happiness and she always looks at the bright side of life. She is a nature lover and those who know her have probably taken a walk with her and enjoyed the amazing details she finds in nature. Mom is also a bird lover. She can tell you most of the names of the birds and they will always find a good meal of seeds in her yard.
Just before Christmas, Jeanina found a lump in her breast. It grew very quickly. Her doctor diagnosed it as invasive ductile carcinoma. Because it was growing so rapidly, she was moved along quickly to get treatment as soon as possible. By the end of January, mom underwent a double mastectomy and 36 lymph nodes were removed from under her right arm.
Her doctor was confident she had removed all the cancer and Mom recovered from the surgery relatively quick. However, a PET scan showed some remaining cancer cells in the lymphatic system.
Mom made the decision to refuse Chemo or radiation and all the side effects people suffer from it. She is choosing to heal herself naturally. Through it all Jeanina has remained super positive.
Being a gluten free vegetarian for many years, Mom has had a very healthy diet. She researched and studied about diet and health and has lived a very balanced lifestyle. Right after her surgery she researched and found many cases of people who have healed themselves from cancer naturally. She immediately went on a cancer diet protocol.
Now she has found the place she wants to go to get natural cancer treatment. Eden Valley institute (http://www.eden-valley.org/ ) is an alternative treatment center and school that uses natural remedies and is nestled in a quiet valley among the foothills of the Colorado Rockies. It sits on 550 acres of forested mountains, meadows, and farmland in a setting of beauty and tranquility.
The 14 day live-in cancer program will develop a special program for mom and she will work with doctors on a diet and lifestyle to address her cancer and build her immune system. The program includes: doctor consultation comfortable Room, delicious vegan meals, two-day detoxifying juice fasts, herbal consultation, hydrotherapy treatments, evidence-based health lectures, Power of Positive Thinking Counseling, group exercise sessions, and off-campus outings.
Being on Medicare Jeanina needs help to raise the funds for this program because this type of treatment is not covered. The program starts on March 18th and we want Mom to be there. The airplane ticket has been bought… and Mom is knowing and trusting in God that the funds will show up.
We need your love and support. Any love donation is welcome because it all adds up. We are grateful for any amount you can give – small or large.
Our goal is to raise $7000 by March 15th.
Traditional oncology treatments would be many times that amount. All money raised will go directly to Jeanina for her 14 day treatment and for her continued health protocols. She will need special dietary food and supplements and ongoing maintenance treatments when she gets home.
Our family is committed to supporting mom on her continued journey to total health.
