Carissa Gleeson  Chittering, WA
My name is Carissa Gleeson I am 22 years old and I have synovial sarcoma in my lower back. I was diagnosed in March 2015 and decided against chemotherapy and radiation as I did not like what they had to offer me.

I accepted the diagnosis but I wasn't going to accept the prognosis.

We started researching alternative therapies like crazy. We watched a docu series by Ty Bollinger called 'The Truth About Cancer, A Quest For the Cures' and a second series called 'A Global Quest' In these series Ty travels around the world interviewing doctors, researchers and cancer survivors. Gathering information about holistic treatments and natural ways to boost your immune system and fight off cancer. You may be questioning why you've never heard of Ty Bollinger's series or seen it? I encourage you to just google him and watch the first episode, it will answer all your questions. (Or email me and I will send you the link) After doing more research and talking about our options we made the decision to go ahead with the use of alternative therapies.

In the last 12 months I have made some huge dietary changes, followed a strict supplement routine & done emotional healing. I have also done a lot of cleansing including juice / water fasting, infrared saunas, colonics and hyper baric chamber. We have managed to slow everything down with all of this but we are in need of stronger treatments to start killing off the cancer cells and reducing the tumour size.

I am now doing 3x weekly intravenous treatments including high dose Vit C, ozone therapy, UV blood cleaning, and emotional healing. I am now working along with an amazing team of doctors both in Aust and the U.S and have 100% faith in what I am doing.

With these new treatments being added to my weekly protocol we are now faced with some financial difficulties as my treatments alone cost on average $5000 a week. Not including supplements. Being alternative therapies, unfortunately none of these are covered by Medicare or funded by the Government.

I have created this blog and fund me page https://www.gofundme.com/juwc3gt9 to reach out to distant family, friends and the public to please ask for your help to save my life. I am so grateful for every donation, and I honestly cannot thank you all enough.

I believe in what I am doing and I have 100% faith I can heal myself. But I am here asking for your help.

I will keep blogging at carissagleeson.weebly.com and keep everyone updated on my treatments and progress over the next few months, if anyone wants to reach out or ask any questions please feel free to email me I will do my best to reply to everyone.

Lots of love,
Carissa. xxxx

So instead of going for a 50-50 chance of actually surviving, you decide to get gullible people to donate to you so that you can pay some quacks $5k a week, simply because you saw that retarded "The Truth About Cancer" docu, which has been debunked over and over? https://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/the-truth-about-cancer-series-is-untruthful-about-cancer/

Do those things AND chemo, or you will suffer horribly before you die . Please google the wellness warrior, who refused a life saving amputation because she too felt she could beat her cancer. It took her seven years to die. I don't want to read your obituary

I know this will fall on to deaf ears, but please also go to a real doctor and get chemo. As someone who lost a loved one through cancer, I can't tell you enough how important it is to have treatment in a hospital.

I'm really sorry to hear you have this form of cancer. It's a pretty nasty one. Please, please go the medical route. What you're doing won't work. I too will quote this article, giving a genuine take on the documentaries that seem to have persuaded you. They are lying, unfortunately .https://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/the-truth-about-cancer-series-is-untruthful-about-cancer/

Carissa, please, please, make sure you update us to let us know when your alternative "treatment" has failed miserably so that other easily influenced cancer victims searching for woo cures, do not follow the same path.

Clarissa, please consider the fact that while you have the right to do whatever you choose, you are influencing other cancer sufferers to follow a death sentence treatment plan. In addition, you are asking people to fund quacks a scammers 5K/week to take advantage of you. It is a very scary thing that you are facing, but you have chosen death, suffering, and funding con artists over a 50/50 chance to live. A much more morbid alternative.

Oh dear Carissa... how sad to see another young girl succumbing to snake oil peddlers that prey on the vulnerable during their time of desperation. The BigPharma catch cry is just so hypocritical....what about BigSupplement and BigAlternative? Do you REALLY believe that $$$ is not part of their agenda? Aside from that, Surgery, Chemo and Radiation are horrid to endure but medical science has improved these treatments with fewer side effects than years ago. The Cut/Poison/Burn that 'alternative' practitioners refer to was most likely from the 1920's. I feel and look better than I did before having treatment for a Stage3 aggresive BC 3 years ago. PLEASE consider that you may also be influencing others to take the same route. Give it your best shot....science based, clinically trialled treatment. http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/2016/04/19/another-young-woman-with-cancer-lured-into-quackery-by-ty-bollinger/

I haven't read all of your story or all of the comments, but in what I have read I did not see anything about using therapeutic grade essential oils in your journey. You probably are using them, but if not I would definitely highly recommend them. Amazing testimonies from those who have used them. Prayers for you for healing!

Dear Carissa, Sadly the majority of people are brainwashed by the medical profession into believing that they have the answers.... which it has been proven they don't. You are absolutely on the right pathway. Don't be afraid to slightly modify what you are doing and take on new ideas of alternative healing if they resonate with you. Sending you love and positive energy.

OMG Carissa, I have just read the comments and can't believe you are getting so many haters. I'm sorry you have to read them. Synovial Sarcoma is a particularly nasty one and one that has poor results from the cut, poison, burn scenario. I have the utmost faith in what you're doing, and well done to you. I know of one around your age that lost a lengthy battle using the medico's way, together with complementary. I don't agree that you should use both, because all the 'good' things you are doing to assist the body to bring itself back to balance, then have to overcome the battering that the medicos do, as well. Keep strong girl, and keep your happy heart. x

Your an incredible lady Clarissa! Your faith and believe is a perfect start. I know there are a lot of skeptics out there that don't have any answers either. The most important thing is to always follow your gut feeling which I think you are doing. I'll be following you and thinking of you and have tremendous hope that you will be a survivor and prove all the skeptics wrong. I do agree with comments with regard to costs. If I had the cure, I would giving it to you for free just to prove to others that I do have a cure. The Truth about Cancer's doc was all about the big Pharma's making the money and they are doing the same? Thats the only disagreement I have as I do truly believe our diet does have a lot to do with our diseases.

Hi Carissa, the Truth about Cancer documentary it is research based, despite what other people say, which I wonder if they had actually watched it! It has testimonials of actual doctors, scientist, and patients. It is amazing, my dad does not do conventional therapy either, although he did do surgery. There are lots of things you can do as you will learn watching the documentary series, I love your positive attitude, keep at it, hope you do find a cure for your particular type of cancer, and do not be discourage by people who do not know you, do not have any idea what you are going through, and do not do their due diligence and actually research. Wish you all the best.

Aside from your other therapy, take a teaspoon of Manuka honey with bee venom twice a day for six months. There is a substance in bee venom, mellitin, that has been found to be effective against cancer, alzheimers, MS and HIV.

Hi Carrisa, While chemo and radiation may help some, others it just breaks down their bodies and lowers the bodys vibrational energy. I have a friend that was diagnosed with sarcoma cancer of the neck, his treatment regime was 7 weeks of chemo and radiation. I am a therapist and healer and work within the 6 and 7 dimensions. I treated my friend each week after his treatment finished, from the kidneys to the prostrate to the lungs and the general pain the radiation caused. 3 weeks after his treatment regime finished, his cancer returned to the same size. Within 3 treatments from me his bodys vibrational energy has returned and the cancer has all but disappeared. I admire what you have chosen for you and keep up the good work x
