Thank you all so much for your incredible love, support, and sharing of this important campaign for my mom, Carol. I'm writing on behalf of my mom and all of those who love her when I say how much strength, gratitude, and joy it brings to have your support. Some of you have also requested a traditional mailing address for your donations. We have set this up for you, please see below.

Much love and thanks,

Carol Nightingale Campaign, P.O. Box 5205, Mankato, MN 56002-5205


Dear Friends, 

As some of you may know, my mother is fighting a serious form of cancer. She was diagnosed with metastatic Endometrial Adenocarcinoma last year, and she has been persevering with incredible courage, endurance, and faithfulness ever since. She is surrounded by family and friends who love and cherish her with immensity,  and who continue to give her their all to fight by her side.

For the last year, my mom has endured heroic feats of survival. Multiple surgeries, paralyzed vocal chords, illness-induced famine, severe pain, deteriorating bone marrow, neuropathy, numerous trips to the emergency room, and other forms of the most harrowing and intense effects these drugs and the disease offer, all compromised her health to the point of nearly no return.

Traditional chemotherapy stopped working after the first four months. During the next seven months, doctors pivoted with more drugs, different dosages, more scans, and more blood tests.

The conclusion soon came that this cancer was no longer responsive to their treatments. She is now no longer a candidate for traditional chemotherapy. It has had its time and ran its toll.

While at a crossroads, we asked the undeniable question, what can be done to support her next phase of healing?

Without a shadow of a doubt, my mom needs urgent treatment. And she found a place that she believes can provide her with the therapy she needs.

She gratefully learned about a team of medical doctors who provide a range of intensive integrative cancer therapies, from vaccines to insulin-targeted chemotherapies, nutriceutical IV infusions and more. The clinic is called San Diego Clinic, located in Tijuana, 500 yards from the California border.

My mother’s dear friend recently shared a story about her friends brother who is successfully healing his late-stage cancer with the San Diego Clinic medical team within TWO MONTHS of receiving their treatments. Other patients, with cases worse than my mother’s, have also successfully treated their cancer with the clinic’s therapies, and they have lived to share their miraculous stories.

At San Diego Clinic, the treatments are outpatient, out-of-state, and nontraditional, so their comprehensive care is not covered by her insurance provider. The patients must bear the costs.  She said to me recently, “So, here I am, I have a cancer that is continuing to grow. A body that cannot tolerate anymore of the traditional medical treatment (chemotherapy). And, I have medical bills from the home infusion (TPN), Labs, the Clinic, several ER visits and inpatient admissions due to the effects of the chemotherapy.”

Her employer, a health facility medical billing office, does not offer medical disability benefits. She has been working from home to support herself during her illness. Although she feels grateful to be able to have the opportunity, on many days she is too sick to work, but she handles it anyway. Thankfully, the insurance she receives has covered most of her expenses so far, and should cover additional follow-up tests and scans once she is back home in Minnesota.

My mother is prepared to go to the clinic in order to save her life, and our family and friends fully support her choice to courageously step into her next phase of healing. She just received her first passport at a young 58 (!!).

We equally support her desire to open a fund and to reach out to all loving and supportive communities who may best facilitate her healing journey. Without it, she will not be able to receive this treatment.

My mother is a magical gift, a deep-hearted human, a generous friend, a loving sister and daughter, a wonderful mom, and an infinitely gorgeous spirit. I am beyond grateful and proud to be her daughter and to have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to know her.

It is an honor to help her mobilize her dream and make it into a reality. Everything in my power is set to support her in realizing her vision.  I hope that it will give her life back in return.

I hope you will lift her up in your prayers and thoughts. If you are able to contribute to her fundraiser as well, we wholeheartedly thank you. Beyond words.

Many hands make this being-alive possible. As her circle of familiar faces holds her up in happiness, healing, and wholeness, know that your support of any variety will be met with the deepest gratitude from my mother, myself, and our friends and family.

I hope that she will be able to share this miraculous healing story with you and be a healed example far and wide.

Please feel welcome to share her story and plan with your communities; we will gratefully receive any prayers and support for her healing.  

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and many blessings.

Love and light,


San Diego Clinic’s intensive treatment costs between $5,000 to $6,000 per week, estimated length of stay for initial in-clinic treatment is 6-8 weeks.  This price does not include outside treatments or any diagnostics, scans, or therapies, including surgery, received outside of the San Diego Clinic (SDC).

An 8-week home program will be designed which will include some of the immune therapies as well as prescribed supplements. The estimated cost will be determined after final evaluation at the clinic.

All costs are estimated by the service providers at their highest end:

San Diego Clinic In-Clinic Intensive Treatments:  $6,000 x 8 weeks = $48,000
Lodging in Tijuana:  $1,400 per month x 2 months = $2,800
San Diego Clinic Home Treatments and Supplements (est):  $14,000 for 8 weeks = $14,000

Total Cost Estimate: $64,800


Her sister will be driving her from Minnesota to Tijuana; estimated 4,000 miles round trip. We are including this in the overall fund so that she may have this covered as well.

Gas price estimate is based on AAA calculations:

Minnesota-San Diego-Tijuana RT (est): $2.8-$3.8 x 4,000 mi. = $450


Her OOP costs are a product of her health insurance limitations. The total is calculated due to 2x $3,000 deductibles in 2017 and 2018 plus coinsurance amounts. The home infusion therapy services for IV nutrition were approximately $5,000. She has already paid some of it down.

We are including her current medical debt in the overall fund amount so that she may be unburdened from this as well.

Current Medical Debt: $8,000

TOTAL COST:  $73,250


The treatment plan is based upon a 6-8-week clinical program (5 days per week) to begin utilizing a personalized protocol of the following therapies:

Weekly/monthly blood work – CBC, SMAC, PLQ, Cancer markers - samples are taken every Monday while in treatment with SDC.  
IPT (insulin potentiated therapy) modified chemotherapy - small, fractionated chemotherapy dosage applied on a weekly basis. This small dose chemotherapy minimizes side effects without affecting the efficacy of the treatment. It is only applicable to patients sensitive to chemotherapy.
Small dose Chemotherapy will be implemented based upon a Chemo Sensitivity Test. This unique blood test assists in targeting the most effective chemotherapy agents as well as natural substances to be utilized in your specific treatment program.

Whole Body Hyperthermia – Enhances the benefits of chemotherapy with a synergistic effect to kill cancer cells.  Also enhances the immune system and assists in detoxification of the body. Given daily for the first two weeks of therapy and then adjusted accordingly.

Metabolic therapy:

Vitamin C & K therapy – (apoptosis/ antioxidant) Produces apoptosis and eliminates free radicals; free radicals produce pain and inflammation.
Chelation therapy – To detoxify the body, eliminate heavy metal poisoning, dissolve cholesterol plaque, reduce free radicals, control inflammation, and regulate blood pressure.
Neurolax IV therapy - Immune enhancer with specific anticancer effect. This is a combination of trace-minerals and Phospholipase A2 that protects V.S. chemo side effects.

Polypeptides IV therapy – An essential treatment to protect liver, spleen, kidneys and bone marrow from the side effects of cancer treatments.
Folinic acid – Reduced folic acid.  Used both to enhance chemotherapy treatment and reduce side effects.

Selenium IV therapy – Enhances lymphatic drainage and immune system function.   It also has an anti-cancer effect& stops metastasis.
Zinc IV therapy - The lack of zinc in our bodies has been implicated not only in the initiation of certain cancers but also in the transition, progression and metastasis of the disease.   When Zinc is deficient, cellular functioning is compromised. Zinc IV therapy is an essential treatment for mineral and immune system balance.
Amygdaline IV therapy – (Laetrile) it has specific anti-cancer effects.
Alban solution IV therapy – anti-inflammatory treatment. Alban is a combination of H2O2 and DMSO.  
Carzilasa IV therapy -A macro energy molecule that represents a real direct donating source of energy for the function of the cells. The active substance is cocarboxylase or thiamine pyrophosphate. This coenzyme reactivates the Krebs cycle.

Nuverasa – (anti-viral therapy) Enhances immune system function and produces apoptosis

Immune therapy:

Allergostop vaccine – This autologous vaccine (vaccine from patient’s own blood) re-programs (modulates) the immune system.
Dendritic cell vaccine with Telomerase inhibitors - This autologous vaccine (vaccine from patient’s own blood) isolates the dendritic cells, which are then cultured in a lab and trained to identify cancer cells.  This process stimulates the immune system and NK cells to destroy cancer cells. Added Telomerase inhibitors help dendritic cells to stop reproduction of cancer cells.
Heptasaccharide vaccine(**)- An autologous vaccine that targets seven surface antigens of cancer cells. This vaccine is effective for most solid tumors.   
Orthomolecular vaccine (**) – This vaccine is developed from urine sample. It helps to restore signaling between nervous system and rest of the body throughout neurotransmitters (specific proteins) that promote correct immune system function and proper healing processes.
Mycoplasma vaccine (**) – Eighty percent of cancer cells have been linked directly to mycoplasma. This autologous vaccine (vaccine from patient’s own blood) eliminates mycoplasma and indirectly destroys cancer cells.  
Neo Springer vaccine – This specific synthetic vaccine targets Sialic Acid which is produced by cancer cells (up to 95%).  
Transfer factor – A dialyzed leukocyte extract with immune modulation effects on both the innate immune response and the adaptive immune response.  In cancer response, it has shown to activate CD8 and lymphocytes, decrease metastasis, aid in bone marrow recovery after chemotherapy treatments, and improve overall condition.
Anti-enox vaccine (**). Targets Cancer stem cells (CIC’s), responsible to release enox -2 protein, which stimulates tumor growth.
**The use of these vaccines will be determined upon testing results completed at SDC.

Supplement program

An oral supplemental program is specifically designed to your needs while in treatment at SDC. It will be designed after the first week at the clinic.
