Stephen Jackson's Cancer Fund
We need your help! To be honest, it is really hard to ask others for help because we know how hard life can be just getting by when things are going OK. In this case, we are asking for your help in order to help Stephen Jackson battle cancer (Squamous Cell Carcinoma) without going the conventional route of Surgery, Chemo or Radiation therapy.
Stephen has chosen to move forward using holistic methods which consists of a raw food diet, the Budwig Protocol, Amygdalin, the Vernon Johnson Protocol, and a wide range of vitamin and mineral supplements.
Stephen was diagnosed with level 2, Metastatic Squamous Cell Carcinoma, which has metastasized from a tumor in the tonsil to the submandibular lymph node in the neck. This is a life threatening condition because of the location. Chemo or Radiation will only result in a major deformation in this area.
Together, as a family, we've decided to try and fight this cancer naturally using the tools the good lord above has provided for us, in the form of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and many plant based NATURAL supplements.
Insurance companies do not pay for natural therapies, and specific types of blood work that need to be completed on a regular basis on order to determine if these therapies are actually working.
PET scans and CT scans will also need to be done over 2 month PERIODS, or so, to track progress as well. These costs over the course of time do add up.
We are not looking for any one person to contribute, however we are asking that you do what is most comfortable for you. We ask for prayers, donations, or both, in order to insure we can meet these treatment schedules, as well as obtaining the vitamins and supplements needed on an ongoing basis.
The Jackson family would like to thank you all in advance, and especially to those who have donated, sent prayers, or have spoken to Stephen directly.
Thank you all again.
I am still here and things have changed a bit as you can tell in the the video. I have been working with the new medication, Keytruda and it has shown some of what it can do. However, with this medication it does need the time it asks for to work because it's not a quick time acting drug, but rather a long time acting chemo drug if you care to read more up on it.
In the mean time, I have been doing everything I can to stay together and keep myself from loosing too much faith because of the changes brought on by the effectes of the drugs but also the changes my body has gone through as a result of taking all the medications, shrinking of the muscles and muscle tone, my throat, loss of weight and everything else.
I am still working at everything after going through some personal changes and diet and a number of changes you will see once I've gotten through this process. I call it a process because everyone is different, and everyone will have a different result.
doing everything and trying to stay on track is difficult when you need to ask for donations.
Yes! I need to as for your help guys to stay focused and keep this process running.
I get scared because I don't have enough to pay for my bills. I try not to ask for donations but I have to get these medical bills paid as well. I have some bills that need to get paid by tomorrow in facted, so you you see how it is.
Please help is what I'm saying. I am fighting this fight on this end so if you can please donate on your end I can keep going here.
So, the Keytruda is working, I have just have just had my latest treatment on Thursday. Next treatment is this month.
I love you all very much ...
Please do not forget about me......
Well, the plan was to update everyone as to what has happened the last couple of months by last weekend.
Instead, I'm back in the hospital for pain and stomach complications.
Things seem to change very quickly with these conditions.
Turns out this was very serious.
Unable to eat and pass normally, and the inability to move my head without massive pain.
The team of doctors are trying to get everything sorted out but this has been one of the worst times of recovery.
I want to thank my family for being strong and by my side through everything. When I fell in the kitchen at 3am in the morning, my son was there and ready to help.
My wife has always been there and made the decision to get some answers. At my normal treatment last Monday, I was admitted.
We thank everyone for prayers and donations.
Your prayers are needed always. God is here with me because I can not do this anymore. The pain is so bad, I say, God if I am ment to be here you will get me through. I'm still here.
Donations are needed and always welcome. I rely on your help and all the financial help others can contribute when they can.
I'm still here.
Thank you all,
More to come soon..
Yeah, Jackson! I just watched your update regarding blood work results...super good news. Gotta be encouraging. I know your diet has got to take a TON of time, so it is great you are seeing these good results, and feeling good from it, too! Prayers and thoughts continue....
WOW, Jackson...Sept 15. Than seems like a long time to wait. I am sure you think that, too. Thank-you for the update. I sure miss seeing you at the store. Hugs to you , and prayers, of course.
