Summer Update

Just saw my local oncologist. Particulars are basically that all cancer is growing, lost another 15 pounds in 6 weeks, and now have anemia (trouble producing red blood cells). I had to have a blood transfusion due to having a hemoglobin count below 7 (normal would be 14-16), a five hour event. Nausea has not really come back but I do get an upset stomach and then vomiting follows. Appetite is still actually good.
Since the blood transfusion I have started back on a supplement that addresses the blood issues, so we will see if the fatigue subsides a little and the blood counts increase.
Due to to current situation of having no cure or treatment, Doctors are encouraging me to seek "Compassionate Care" treatments. Those are basically: you get to take none FDA approved drugs that showed something positive in a trial that is not complete. So they surmise that, "hey it might help". I have resisted the chemo route as I believe it will hurt more that it helps. We are researching the particular drug they have recommended and will educate ourselves before we decide. Still fighting this freak of a disease and working hard to keep positive when everything associated with cancer is negative.

  1. Have you read Dr William Kelley's book, ONE ANSWER TO CANCER? His protocol is highly effective. You can download his book free, posted on the web at:

    are you familiar with Carey Reams and his treatment? Search RBTI ... it works!
