Loretta's Breast Cancer Treatment

Dear Friends and Family,

I retired from teaching Art in June of 2018 and by November I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The surgery was done in December and I was prepared for radiation. Then the Oncotype DX test results came back and it indicated that I needed chemotherapy. My father had the same breast cancer, they removed everything, did chemo and radiation. Four years later he was diagnosed with leukemia and eventually died of it. They tell me that my cancer is not hereditary, but it is known that chemo causes leukemia. My concern is, if I got his same breast cancer and do the same procedures, my chances for leukemia are high.

In Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) we were studying about the Israelites taking the promised land and I realized God wanted me to have patience and courage. I started seeking other opinions. I was disheartened to learn that I was not a candidate for Immunotherapy, too scared to go totally homeopathic. Then I was directed to Reno, the Forsythe Cancer Care Center. James Forsythe is an Oncologist and a Homeopathic Doctor. He strengthens your immune system while killing the cancer cells with a low dose chemotherapy. His track record proves it is effective without the side effects of full dose chemo. My blood was sent to Greece where they extracted the cancer cells and tested various chemo drugs and natural cures on them to see which were the most effective. The deciding factor was when only one out of the two chemo drugs they were planning on using on me in Redding and UCSF matched. They would have used an ineffective drug on me that causes neuropathy. I have encountered six women with neuropathy from chemo since my diagnosis. Would they have done chemo if they would have known? No. It became clear to me which direction the Lord was telling me to go. Unfortunately, it is Alternative Medicine and my insurance will not cover it, so I am seeking the help of human kindness. I would be grateful for anything you are moved to contribute.

Please do not give if you cannot afford it, but your prayers would be appreciated.  

Love,
Loretta Bryant

I have completed my treatments, yahoo! My current diagnosis is remission. I will have further testing in the fall and if that is negative, I will be considered cured. Praise the Lord from whom all blessings flow!

I finished another treatment May 9th, one more to go. Still doing well, the doctor said my blood reports look great, like someone that didn't have cancer (the best news yet.) I am grateful to God, family & friends for the tremendous support. Thank you so much! Loretta

Friends & Family,
I finished the initial 2 week treatments in Reno. All went well, a little nausea and quite a few headaches, nothing earth shattering. I have 3 treatments left, one each month for 3 months. Then I'm done, praise God! This has been the most humbling experience. Thank you so much for all for all your monetary help and prayers!
Love, Loretta
