Created June 21, 2017
One of the brightest stars in our community is in need of our immediate help.  Blane Lyon, a great musical soul and ally  in our West Coast family, has been diagnosed with a stage 4 cancerous tumor on his vocal chord.  Those of us who have the privilege of calling him a friend will tell you he’s one of the most generous, dedicated, funny, and truly caring people you will ever know.  Our heartfelt prayer is that he will continue to share his gifts and sing his powerful songs for many years to come.  It’s time to rally for Blane’s life and well being, time to shine some of the love and support back to him that he’s given to us!  Please donate now!  


Here’s Blane’s story in his own words:


My name is Blane and I am writing you in the hope of saving my life.  For as long as I can remember, I have loved using my voice to entertain, sing and compose music.  I've been a singer and composer for different original dance soul music groups for the past 25 years. I received my degree in music composition from UC at Santa Cruz Ca in 1994.  About 3 plus years ago I noticed that it was becoming more and more difficult for me to sing.  I noticed a loss of range and my voice didn't seem to be healing.  I was mis-diagnosed as having a stomach acid reflex issue almost 2 years ago.  For over a year and a half I did diet and Speech therapy hoping to heal the issue with no positive results.  It really depressed me and greatly affected my ability to perform and earn a living.  Just over a month ago I returned to the throat doctor and was diagnosed as having a stage 4 cancerous tumor that has effectively paralyzed my left vocal chord.  The American doctor’s have recommended an intense regiment of toxic chemo and radiation treatments.   If the chemo/radiation doesn't work, then they want to do surgery and remove my voice box.   They have assured me these treatments are rather painful and terrible and the side effects and long term consequences of these treatments likely include loss of hearing, loss of the ability to speak, loss of the ability to produce saliva or swallow, loss of or damage to the ability to father children, highly increased likely hood of developing other cancers due to radiation exposure, loss of ability to eat.........the list goes on and on. They say they have only a 50/50 chance of reducing my tumor using their destructive and toxic methods.   They have also told me that without treatment they do not expect me to survive more than a year.  I however feel that I am focused and strong, and that I am utterly committed to do what it takes to heal and survive.  I have important work to do in this world and I want to be here for my son, my partner and for you.  I don’t want to do chemo/radiation.  I am holding on to another version of the future where I can heal myself without toxic poison.
I request that you donate to this funding campaign to send me to one of the most cutting edge alternative cancer healing facilities in the world.  It is located in Tiajuana, Mexico.  I have heard amazing positive reports from people who have healed themselves there.   This program is not cheap.  It costs close to $25,000 just for 3 weeks at the clinic.  I'm hoping 6 weeks will be enough for me to heal.  I believe it that it will heal me and I am actually really excited about going there (especially considering the alternative).  

I have been composing and working on an album for close to 10 years.  I will send you this full album as an acknowledgement of anyone who contributes to help me.  I want everyone to know that I am doing everything I can to heal including exercise, meditation, a no sugar, alcohol, tobacco, gluten, animal products diet.  I want to use this as an opportunity to become a better human being and not a reduced one.  Please remember, time is of the essence.  My goal is to begin treatment in Mexico by July 4th 2017.  You play an active role in saving my life and helping me to sing again.  I ask that you share this with everyone possible in order to reach the goal as quickly as possible.  I and my family thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Hello and greetings from Hawaii. I wanted to thank you deeply for contributing to my healing this year. Your support made a huge difference for myself and my family. It’s been quite a tuff year and I’ve been through a lot. I have come a long way since my stage 4 vocal cancer diagnosis almost a year ago. I’ve have been on a very vigorous health / healing program this year and I am starting to see the benefits. I spent the summer at a cancer clinic in Tijuana Mexico. This was helpful. However, I’m still dealing with cancer and it’s many symptoms daily. My doctors advised me to be super gentle with myself and stay warm this winter, so I continued the healing by moving my family to Hawaii for the winter and just focusing completely on natural methods of healing. It’s really been an intense journey and I have a ways to go but I feel my situation and chances of survival have really benefitted from all the focused healing work I have have been blessed to be able to do this year. I could not have made it this far without your support. Thank you so much. I want to make sure you have received both of my albums. My original “All People” album and my new unreleased album (I just finished) called “Beyond Yesterday”.

The easiest way to down load the full album is to just go to the bottom of the dropbox page and download the “Full Album Zip File” only. Then unpack it on your computer and load it into your system to listen to. That’s it. I appreciate any and all feedback and inspired ideas. You can reach me at blanelyon1@me.com
Beyond Yesterday:

Here is another link for the my first album “All People”.
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/t7su391u2czbl04/AAB7Qzag02rEMFoQfDGOw0Yoa?dl=0

My plan is to raise more funds so I can keep doing these different natural treatments and therapies. (The list of therapies and treatments I’m doing is extensive and expensive and I’m happy to share that information with you if you are interested). I intend to completely heal myself from stage 4 cancer and to live a long and worthy life with my family and friends, who are so dear to me. I also really want to continue creating more music, and put some of the things I’ve learned on this journey into art. I look forward to sharing with you in the future.
Thank you again for helping me and holding me in your prayers. I appreciate you and wish you the best life has to offer.

I am presently healing myself of a stage 4 tumor on my vocal chord. I have been making some incredibly positive progress. It has been a very challenging month and a half and I am now so happy to say I have really turned the corner for the better. I want to thank everyone who has already helped me make it to this point of my healing journey. I’ve been learning so much from this experience and I recognized that I have been incredibly blessed and supported by all of you. It has been a very trying and expensive experience. I have been on a dedicated healing path, living with my family on the Hawaiian island of Maui. In the past 2 months I have overcome pain, sickness, fears and doubts. My family and I are living at a beautiful healing temple with an old friend in Haiku. This place is magic and for the first time since my diagnosis I feel that I have really found a place where I can let down my guard and find a true place of rest and stillness. The peace of this place is having a great effect on me and I can feel myself healing every day I am here. My pain level has greatly decreased and my energy and positivity have returned. I hope that soon, my voice will return and I will be able to speak again. Instead of chemotherapy and radiation I have been doing a focused program of diet, rest, Alkalizing the body, hyperthermia, biomagnetic bed, THC/CBD oil, bloodwoork and massive nutritional supplements. I have been doing regular Reki massage sessions, emotional release work, ultrasound therapy, ocean and nature time, green coffee enemas, High doses of raw tumeric juice, Dragon’s blood oil , DMSO , coconuts and Noni fruit and exercise. I have also been sitting with a plant shaman and taking Ayawasca medicine as part of my healing journey. It’s been profound and extremely helpful.
It feels incredible and empowering to feel myself healing daily. I want to be able to afford to stay for another month at this incredible healing temple space on Maui and I need to raise another $4,000 to afford another month plus of housing, food and healing therapies. I am looking for 40 people to contribute $100. If you contribute $100 I will also personally give you a foot massage. I ask that you share this post and donate what you can. It all comes back around. I and my family thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping to create this opportunity to heal naturally. I will send a copy of my new unreleased album to all donors. The best way to donate to help me is by using Paypal -

Greetings, I'm in a alternative cancer treatment center in Tijuana Mexico after 7 weeks of treatments. I'm gonna come home for a few weeks, to work, be with family, and raise $ for a further 6 weeks of treatments here. Today I am hoping to buy the clinic's anti cancer take home package of many different medicines, stem cell vaccines specific to my blood, a small ultrasound device and the special anti tumor elixir that is also needed for use with the ultrasound. All in all I need to rally up $5000 today to pay for it. Crazy I know. These treatment have been saving my life but it has been an exorbitantly expensive process. It's challenging to keep asking my community for help after being given so much assistance already. I wouldn't ask if if wasn't such an incredibly serious situation. I have to swallow my pride and survive to be here for my son. If you can please donate. I deeply appreciate all the live and support I have been given. I thank you for all you have already done for my family and myself. I'm getting strong enough to be able to return to my life and give that love and support back t everyone I can.

Thanks and have a beautiful day!
