JULIE'S JOURNEY from CANCER TO JOY

$200 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 3 people in 9 months
I have been very fortunate in my decision to stay far away from slash/burn/poison treatment for cancer (Ovarian cancer first diagnosed in 2013 and Kidney cancer in 2015) and I have been doing fairly well so far. Alas, I am living significantly below the poverty level so the alternative treatment I have had access to is extremely limited. It is time to ramp up the treatment, and I am strongly guided to work with Dr. Patrick Hanaway who years ago was my primary care physician. He is now an international leader in the field of Functional Medicine – he teaches other doctors all about it. (Read more about functional medicine – it is very cool  ) Dr. Hanaway is also a shaman – a leader in Plant Spirit Medicine and traditional Huichol healing. How great is that?

The course of treatment will run about $2500 – the cost of chemo for about a day and a half! I am envisioning that there will be those among my friends who will be moved to help me make it happen. You can help here on my gofundme account OR you can send a gift via PayPal and that way no fee is taken out OR you can mail me a check. PM for my address and/or email. And/or you can buy my book The Vocabulary of Joy – Celebrating the Blessings of Life with Cancer from Amazon or if you are in Asheville, from Made in the Mountains at the Grove Arcade. Thank you thank you thank you for taking the time to pop in here!

For any donations of $100 or more, I will happily mail you a copy of my book. For donations of $500 or more, I will mail you my firstborn!  (Oh, wait - the book IS my firstborn. Okay, two books.)

$550 towards my goal of $2500 for an important functional medicine consult/treatment! I am so grateful. As I have said before, it "takes a village" to heal from cancer! This will be a huge step in supporting my body to heal by re-establishing balance and harmony in the gut. Donating to my GoFundMe account is one way to help, also buying the book! Thank you thank you thank you!

I am so grateful for my very first donation of $500.00!!! I can't yet figure our how to post that to my total - maybe I can't because it came in the mail. At any rate, well begun is half done, as they say. It feels so wonderful to have support rolling in for the next leg of my cancer healing journey!
