My name is Jim Tarbet (my nickname is wordman ) and I am 62 years old. I decided to create this page because I need help and I don't have anyone to turn to.
In April 2014, I found out that I have Throat Cancer.
This was devastating news and my first thought was of my 89 year old mom who suffers from moderate Dementia. Who will take care of her if I am not here ? I have been her sole caregiver for the past 12 years. I am all she has. And what of my 23 year old daughter and 22 year old son ? Although adults they still need a dad.
I have decided to fight this. Although the doctors recommend Chemo Therapy, I did my own research for over a month and came to the conclusion that Chemo is not for me.
Instead I choose to use a combination of natural health producing elements. These range from juicing in large quantities as well as eating whole natural foods to heal and replenish my body , ... while continually fine-tuning and adding new things along the way. It is a broad spectrum approach--an approach that is natural and healing without the negative side effects of breaking down my body.
I believe this method can give me a chance to live...a very good chance.
I am unsure how much longer I will be able to work. I have been so sick lately and every day is a challenge.
As a result of the cancer, I have a hole in the back of my throat and I am unable to breathe out my nose. In addition, my hearing in my right ear has diminished so much that I'm almost completely deaf on that side.
So much has occurred in just a months time and I struggle daily because of overwhelming circumstances. I was never a rich man, but I managed to make ends meet. However, now ... I have so many medical bills piling up and as a result, I struggle to just manage my daily expenses, provide for my mother, my treatment, and keep up with food and rent.
I am asking ... can you please help me?
Any amount, no matter how small, will help me so much. It will give me the opportunity to focus on getting well. If you could help with either a one-time gift or even a monthly commitment over the course of a year, I will be so incredibly grateful.
I want to live and be healthy. I need to live for my mother and to be here for my kids .
How can I say "Thank You" for helping me to stay in this world? What words will suffice to express my gratitude? This life is such a precious gift ... and I am holding onto it for as long as I can.
Thank you so much for your compassion and heart.
With deepest gratitude,
