The Benbo's Fight for Life

Dear People of good will,

We urgently plea for your support in this battle to save my husband’s, Michael Benbo’s life. No financial support is too small, we need your prayers even more.  Michael was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer in November of 2016.  Since then we have been on the war path to try and save his life.

 A short history: I (Michelle Benbo) I accepted a job that moved me to the U.S. Virgin Islands in April 2016.  Three months later, Mike joined me.  It was then that we noticed a significant weight loss.  He began having pains in his shoulder and hip.  He was diagnosed with stage four liver cancer just 4 months after arriving on the island.  From that time on, it has been a very intense and extremely difficult battle for his survival. 

Living in a foreign country where medical resources are scarce did not help the situation either.  As a result, we had to leave the island to find help.  I took a 2-month leave of absence and stayed with my husband in Zion, Illinois at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA).  Although the loss of income during this time was very difficult, what was even more troubling was leaving to return to the island without my husband.  You see, in order to ensure he gets a fair chance at survival we thought it best for him to stay in Missouri where family and brethren can support us in this battle.

 We transferred Mike’s care to CTCA in Tulsa OK, and set up our “Healing Headquarters” in Missouri in January of 2017. Needless to say, the back and forth from Missouri to Tulsa Oklahoma for treatment has been less than merciful to him. As his primary caregiver, I commute from the Island monthly and the financial cost has been an incredible strain for us.

 This journey for life has taught us so many valuable lessons, but the most challenging lesson we have learned is the gross lack of true cancer treatment that is available to us through mainstream healthcare.

After exhaustive traditional cancer treatment like chemotherapy and radiation which provided no measureable results, we are at the most critical point of this journey, and natural remedies seems to be the only next option left.  Based on my research, I am convinced that there is an astounding number of natural remedies that can be used to help Mike recover from this cancer.   I have been trying to carry some of these remedies out on my own, but I am ill-equipped to do so effectively.  We have come to the point where we need to reach out to any one of the numbers of Alternative Cancer Treatment Centers that have the knowledge, experience, and success rates to make a difference in Mike’s life.

This is where we need you.  Will you please support us in this “Fight for Life” campaign?  We are in the process of building a wonderful testimony for the healing power and love of God and we are asking for your prayers and financial support.
