If I would of known then, what I know now. We would of started dad immediately on natural immune boosters and live juice. No Sugars to keep the cancer from coming back. Dad started out with a single tumor in the Colon. He had surgery and was told he was cancer free. This was stage one July 5th 2007. We didn't know anything about stages. The Oncologist suggested chemotherapy. It came across as a sales presentation. He talked to the family and we all agreed no reason for chemo. A few months later the cancer metastasized.
After 13 months of chemo dad went into total remission on Jan 2009. We were in shock when it came back 3 months later. The Oncologist took dad off Chemo because it stopped working.
Dad went full force into alternatives. The CSAN showed no new mets but still growing slightly with alternatives. We were disappointed they were still growing.
The Oncologist decided to try FU 5 the chemo pill. He didn't take any alternatives at that time except for essiac tea once in a while to help when he looked like the chemo was killing him. The FU 5 made the tumors grow faster then any other time. The Oncologist took him off of that and put him back on the 1st Chemo that stopped working. He gave him less of it and spread it out over a longer period of time.
I keep researching profiles of people that claim to be getting good results. I bought about 5 books on alternatives. I compare and study all dads bloods test and scans myself. Dad is getting a little upset with me because I am having him try so many things and the cancer is still slowly growing. He is feeling better because of a healthier life style. Finally it paid off. The last product we purchased AHCC put his immune system in action. The Oncologist said the cancer has not grown at all in three months. Two tumors went down. The Oncologist said this was from God not him. I agree. Thank You God. Dads eyes were Smiling. Dads CEA was a 5
About 3 months later Sept 2010 the tumors started growing again. Dads CEA was a 10, he has been eating more sugar.. The tumor growth varied from .1 cm up to a .6 cm. The CSAN report had two mistakes on it concerning growth of tumors. The Oncologist didn't catch the mistakes and just passed the incorrect information on to dad. One of the mistakes was a 2.1 cm additional growth error. Dads doctor thinking the tumor was only a .5 cm going to a 3.1 cm when the tumor was a 2.5 cm to begin with. THIS IS WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO DOUBLE CHECK THE REPORTS. Then for the 2nd time the Oncologist said the chemo wasn't working and ended chemo.
The oncologist sent dad 3 hours away to another state to see if he qualified for a clinical trial. In the mean time we are trying to get more fresh lemonade in dad to raise the ph in his body and fill him with nutrition and immune boosters. Update Nov 24th 2010. Dads has been off chemo almost 3 months now. His CEA went from a 10 to a 21.
Dad has been accepted for clinical trial in Jan of OSI-906 which keeps cancer from getting its food supply. ***UPDATE ***** Jan 23th 2011, Dad He has been on the OSI 906 clinical trial for about 21 days now. We are keeping dads ph up with fresh lemons and juicing. He still won't stop drinking the diet cokes which have a very low ph level. He is still taking the AHCC, Q 10, B vit complex, and others. The people at the clinical trial won't tell us anything. They told dad they want to con't giving him the OSI 906 after the 21 day clinical trial stage 1. DAD is still looking healthy and maintaining his weight of 167.00 he is about 5'7". He is still active and eats well. UPDATE 03/09/2011 THE OSI 906 TRIAL ENDED - THEY SAID IT DIDN'T WORK AND ONLY CAUSED HIS BLOOD SUGAR TO BE HIGH AND ALSO SPREAD WHERE THE BIOPSIS WAS TAKEN. They said the cancer grew a little bit. But we would have to look at the reports ourself if we can get any to see what is really going on.
Update Dad is still here April 20th 2011. - April 23 - update It has been an informative journey for me since dad has been diagnosed with cancer. Unfortunately dad doesn't see the whole picture. I can't make him drink his wheat juice because he thinks it taste like dirt. He doesn't want foods that keep the body alkaline. I can't keep him away from the sugar or the diet cokes. His body is now getting acidic which causes more pain and the cancer to grow faster. Like most of the general public dad hasn't done any research in the cancer industry or alternatives. So his mind doesn't' fully gasp the whole picture. Dads pain doctor told him its ok to use morphine once every hour if he wanted it. The more he takes the sicker he gets. The sicker he gets the more he thinks he needs.
UPDATE MAY 3RD 2011 - DAD IS MOSTLY ACTIVE - GOING SHOPPING - preaching at the church - working around the house - HE SAID LAST WEEK HE DOESN'T EVEN KNOW if He still has the cancer or not.
Update may 10th 2011 - Dad is being super active now - he is 73 acting more like a 50 year old. He is working around the house - moving furniture - lifting heavy boxes - I just hope he doesn't think he is superman - I like that he is building muscle. He had the air on freezing yesturday. This Shows how much he is being active. His skin looks good also. He is a pastor of a church and now the plans have just been set to do major remodeling that will take about 1 year.
UPDATE 5/12/2011 The Oncologist wanted to know what dad was doing to keep his body going. Dad told him and he said why should I stop. The doctor said what ever you are doing keep doing.
UPDATE 5/25/2011 dad is doing great - looks good - up working in his book store - eating fresh cherries, taking B complex - had his essica tea with fresh lemon and a spoon of col silver. He also had a mcmuffin and diet coke
update 6/8/2011 Dad is still going strong. He was the last one to catch a flu type something going around our area. He is out with friends tonight.
Update July 4th 2011- Dads tumors are growing faster now. He will try one more clinical trial in a couple of day. He is getting his affairs in order. He is loosing weight.
July 31, 2011 - Dad weighted 154 today. He is still eating. Staying in bed a lot. lots of pain pills with morphine. His PH level was low about 5. Still trying to do what we can to help with alternatives. The clinical trial - they say they have something for him but then
after 3 six hour drives they just talk to him. I would think they would be more consider of peoples time not to waste it at such a painful time in their life.
Dad Passed to the streets of gold on Sept 3rd, 2011 - I love you Dad - As I was driving to the hospital on his last day I was thinking to tell him how much I loved him. I thought I would tell him I love him with all my heart, soul and ..... I thought this is reserved for God. This is a verse in the Bible saying to love............At that moment I heard dads voice saying "Jesus" it was coming though waves or water. I said you are right!! I knew at that moment that dad was ok and he had made it to the other side. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your might. This was my final gift from dad - I knew he was in the spiritual world. I arrived back at the hospital and his fingernails were turning purple. I went to his face and told him that I heard him. When he was taking his last breaths we named off all the people that love him and then all the ones he was looking forward to seeing again. We had a peace and joy for him as he was freed from his body. Dads gift to me was to hear his voice. All this time I thought I would be in so much pain when he left - I was in total peace.
