FIGHTING CANCER, ANYTHING HELPS

At some point in our lives, all of us have been affected by cancer—either a personal battle or helping a loved one with the disease.

Here is a little about Ms Arnetha!

Her full name is Arnetha Gholston-Habeel

Also known as Ms A, age 59 from Chicago, Illinois by way of Ponola Alabama, youngest child of Ollion Gholston and Amanda Gholston who were married 65 years.  

As a child she accompanied her mother as she quietly went about feeding the homeless and encouraging the lost souls in the neighborhood where she grew up to accept God in their life. Her mother’s spiritual devotion resulted in her being ordained as a minister under the Christian religion.

This inspired her work to serve homeless veterans and others who were suffering in the neighborhood. Her work is well recognized and acknowledged and she became known as the “Mother Teresa” of her community.  Before that she was known for supporting “at risk youth” who needed to be given a hand up to reach their God given excellence along with running a business incubator for the disadvantaged.

In 2007 she met and married her wonderful husband, a service disabled Vietnam era retired US Army veteran and I became his care giver.  This began her career as a veteran’s wife and she experienced first-hand the trauma that our countries broken heroes have to endure.  After serving in the capacity of National Commander of the Auxiliary for a veteran’s service organization along with her husband and some other Vietnam veterans they opened the Rtw veteran center, a private not for profit 501C3 volunteer organization, only funded by veterans and supporters donations, on the south side of Chicago to serve our nations wounded warriors who gave so much and have received so little.

After years of volunteering for long hours standing on her feet each day in the organization’s kitchen preparing free meals to feed homeless veterans and others in the community, Monday thru Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Holidays, Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner, 360 days per year which resulted in the organization serving over 5,000 meals per month at their facility, in 2015 she began to have health problems.

 It started with a diagnosis of sciatic nerve issues that affected her back and ability to stand on her feet, then high blood pressure and eventually a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. In 2017 her doctors begin to say that she had become insulin resistant as they tried all types of diabetic medicines and combination of medicines to control her blood sugar. This experimentation of medicines created a roller coaster ride for her body’s vitals with her health steady on the decline.

Then came the bomb shell. 

On January 20th 2018, after complaining of a severe pain in her side her family rushed her to Northwestern hospital where they performed emergency and extensive examinations.

 After these examinations they announced that they had discovered a tumor on her pancreas. As the doctors worked to get her strong enough to undergo surgery while they continued to perform more examinations they discovered that the tumor was inoperable and cancerous and in fourth stage of a rare pancreatic cancer that attached the hormone producing area of the pancreas.

 Their recommended options for conventional treatment were chemotherapy for which they had to work to get her strong enough to undergo. In February of 2018 she had her first treatment of chemotherapy, which is design to kill the cancer cells through literally injecting poison into your system. This treatment proved unbearable as the side effects nearly proved fatal. This began a search for alternative healing options.

 In March of 2018 she began her holistic journey toward recovery which meant that this was a costly path that her insurance coverage refused to pay for. This journey included a combination of methodologies for her mind, body, and soul. It also included a lot of prayer as prayer teams have formed and are calling for a healing miracle across the country and across many different faiths. 

 It also included an out pouring of love and support from her family beginning with her two wonderful children who from the beginning never left her bedside during this time, often sleeping around the clock at her side in the hospital, to her devoted husband and grandchildren, brothers, nieces and nephews, cousins and other family members, friends and well-wishers.

 God has blessed her with a variety of healers who he has chosen to use as vehicles to channel his healing powers through.  Most notably is Doctor Lee Warren of Chicago who healed his self of eye cancer.  Right now she is using a combination of traditional medicine and holistic treatments.  As the success of the holistic treatments increase the need for the traditional medicine will decrease.

 Dr. Warren’s daily support and guidance as a cancer survivor has been wonderful and his recommendations invaluable. These recommendations begin to create progress as her doctors were amazed in early April as her blood work showed progress toward a turnaround of her condition.  However her holistic program is a steady increasing cost as we employ different levels of treatment and as April progressed money issues affected her ability to keep up with the recommended treatments and the latest blood test taken by her doctors showed a decline in her results.

 Doctor Warren assures us that if she sticks to his treatment recommendations that she will see a complete reversal of her conditions and a return to full health. One of her goals in her recovery is to become an inspiration to others who have been stricken with illnesses and given a medical diagnosis such as she has that there is hope and another path to wellness.

Dr. Warren also guaranteed her that this is going to be a fight. He said that if she has a will to live and a belief in the healing powers of God and his guidance coming though his healing disciples coupled with her willingness to fight that she will win this battle. He said all of this has to be manifested in her discipline to stick to the healing routines that he is recommending.

 She is a fighter. She got her spiritual devotion from her mother and willingness to fight from her father. She got her mental toughness from both of them.

 At the end of April the family and friends decided to open up a go fund me campaign with the goal of raising fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) which will cover my treatments for the next six months which should be enough to get her to a stage of sustained recovery.

 As you can see it is an enormous amount of money as doing her community work had already exhausted her and her husband’s retirement nest egg.

The family hopes to give Daily or weekly updates regarding her health, treatment and thoughts as she forges a path for others who have been diagnosed with this type of affliction. Which she hopes to be useful and inform you all of this journey that she is on. 

We observed her as she watched her children as they tenderly cared for her with hope and compassion in their eyes. Her grandchildren as they eagerly asked if she needed them to her anything. And her devoted husband as he lay holding her tightly in his arms telling her everything was going to be alright.  Family Bliss. Sometimes it is just too perfect. 

 
Her children need their mother.

Her grandchildren need their grandmother.

Her husband needs his wife.

Her Family & Friends need their beloved

And those in need in the community still need her continued love and helping hand 

Please donate what you can, this is a lifesaving treatment for her and her family.  Each donation will receive a down loadable love gift to you. Share stories, photos, and positive thoughts to our GoFundMe campaign.

Then, have your personal supporters of this campaign to change their Facebook or other social network avatar photos and have them share a link to our campaign.

DIY Walk-A-Thon

Walk-a-thons are tried and true in the cancer fundraising space, so why not take the idea and make it your own?

This means they can post about their steps daily on social media—nothing like some friendly competition to boost donations! Even giving at a ratio like $15 for 15,000 steps will make a huge difference if it’s every day for a week. Think of something special to do for your top stepper to recognize their contributions.

“Thinking of You” E-Cards

Because we want “Ms Arnetha’s Cancer Treatment Fund”  campaign to reach a wide range of people, design some pretty e-cards that donors and potential donors can send to each other?

Update on Ms. Arnetha 9-4-18

Thank you to everyone who has already donated and supported Ms. Arnetha during her health challenge by sharing this fundraising page with family and friends. We'd like to give you an update on Ms. Arnetha's health progress for the past few months.

Status of Cancer - Stopped and Not Spreading 

The pancreatic cancer that Ms. Arnetha has been experiencing has been scanned twice, once in March and once in July. Both times the tests showed the cancer had stopped growing and had not metastasized.

Back Story

When she was first diagnosed with cancer at the end of January 2018 and sent to Warren Barr in hospice care, Ms. Arnetha could not lift her head off the pillow. The doctors gave her a short time to live. As you see, with the help of nutraceuticals  (herbs, mushrooms, vitamins and medical cannabis) Ms. Arnetha has gone far past their expectations. 

Current Progress

She recently celebrated her 60th BDAY in mid-July (see video in updates on gofundme website) and on good days she is now walking around, going to church, and running errands. On days that aren't so good, she still experiences the challenges of pain, nausea, and opioid-induced constipation. The doctors have given her opioids for pain, but the side effects are nausea and opioid-induced constipation.

Acupuncture Treatment 

She began treatment with an acupuncture specialist at the end of June for pain, nausea, and constipation. These treatments have helped her tremendously. She is beginning to experience more days without​ these three challenges.

Going Forward - Shrinking Tumors

Ms. Arnetha has come a long way. To continue her progress and to get some of those tumors to shrink at her next test, she still needs your support to purchase her nutraceuticals, pay for her acupuncture treatments and restart her Vitamin C IV treatments three times a week. 

Please donate at the gofundme page for Ms. Arnetha (See button above) as you are led by the spirit within (Col. 1:26-27). Also, share this post with friends and family. 

Ms. Arnetha needs to replenish her arsenal of Yahweh's natural plants which we know in the Mystery Babylon system costs money! Rev. 17-18th Chapters.

Homework for Healing 

The name "Arnetha" means Powerful and complete. Please visualize Ms. Arnetha as completely healed and powerful and let's see how quickly our thoughts are materialized.
Proverbs 23:7,  "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he."  

Sincerely,

Ms. Arnetha's Holistic Coach,

Dr. Lee Warren, CEO and Founder of PLIM, with the assistance of my wife, Penny
