(PART 1)


I was awaken from a restless sleep, torn from watching a documentary that was advised to be watched by a friend.  It was about the history of cancer and I was amazed to see what was being done back in the nineteenth century. I was even more surprised to see and hear that not much difference has been done since then. 


During the late 1800’s women that had breast cancer had surgery to remove the breast, all layers; to prevent the cancer from coming back.  However, the fix was not enough.  In most cases the cancer came back in another organ and to fix that, they removed that organ which caused it to arrive in another.  This is not much different to what is happening today!


Chemo and radiation started in the early nineteen hundreds, which provided results which were pretty much the same.  The chemo ~a poison drug was experimented on people with the successful rate that the drug would later form another type of cancer or other side effects.  Radiation was done with the same results.  However they are doing the same type of procedures today!


As I grew up I had experienced the same results with my family members.  At an early age I watched my father and his siblings all go through chemo and radiation and saw the same results and death.  This was in the 1970’s when President Nixon passed a bill to raise funds for the cure of cancer.

in memory of my Dad, lets make a difference

When I graduated from high school, my passion was to help and change the way cancer was feeding on the public. I went into the medical field and went along with the crowd until I was diagnosed with breast cancer in my early 50’s.  Everything came back to me and my life changed with the knowledge and education what is out there for treatment.  I explored the world for options and found results without long term side effects.  It’s amazing what you can find out there if you look hard enough.    


With all the funding that has been going on for many years, they just keep coming up with poisons to fight this illness. I am appalled that not enough research is going toward the type of treatments that Mexico and Germany has been doing for years.  There is a way to fight cancer without surgery, chemo, radiation that do show good results. 


We as people need to realize that the type of procedures are being used now have a very low rate of cure and look outside the box and educate ourselves.  It’s been known that heat and oxygen kills cancer and there are other ways rather than the norm that burns and poisons and causes other side effects.  I should know for I had these other methods and have had minor side effects ~ a fever.  In researching further a fever is not a bad side effect.  This is a way that your body is telling you that there is something wrong and it wants to escape out.  So often, we are given a pill to break the fever when in many cases we should let it take its course.


Immune therapy (T Cells), hyperthermia and ozone treatments are much more affective without side effects.  The insurance companies will not pay for this for they say it is experimental; but isn’t chemo and radiation.  It has been a trial since the early nineteen hundreds and still with the same results.  Why not put the money for a cancer cure into what I did and have insurance companies pay for it.  Wait, maybe they do not want to find a cure or a better type of treatment, because more people will live.   Just look at the statistics and think about it:

Every 7 minutes a woman is diagnosed with gynecological cancer, 1 million a year in the U.S.

The American Cancer Society’s estimates for breast cancer in women in the United States for 2015 are:

About 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer

About 62,290 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) of the breast will be found (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).

About 40,290 deaths from breast cancer

Cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.

Annual report, The American Cancer Society

This annual report provides the estimated numbers of new cancer cases and deaths in 2015, as well as current cancer incidence, mortality, and survival statistics and information on cancer symptoms, risk factors, early detection, and treatment. In 2015, THERE WILL BE AN ESTIMATED 1,658,370 NEW CANCER CASES DIAGNOSED and 589,430 cancer DEATHS in the US. (Please note: The projected numbers of new cancer cases and deaths in 2015 should not be compared with previous years to track cancer trends because they are model-based and vary from year to year for reasons other than changes in cancer occurrence. Age-standardized incidence and death rates should be used to measure cancer trends.)

Cancer Research Funding

Key Points

• The National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Health and Human Services, is the Nation’s principal agency for cancer research and coordinates the National Cancer Program.

• As a federal agency, NCI receives its funds from Congress.

• Although NCI’s budget has been relatively flat in recent years, averaging approximately $4.9 billion per year, funding for specific cancer types and research categories may fluctuate for a number of reasons.

• Other federal agencies, state, and local governments, voluntary organizations, private institutions, and industry spend substantial amounts of money on cancer-related research.

As I understand it science has mapped the genome for cancer. The problem is that the cancer cells mutate making many drug treatment programs ineffective. Research is very expensive and as drugs become ineffective continuing research must be performed to combat the evolution of the disease driving up costs for treatment. In a great many cases patient’s lives are extended by drugs used to fight their disease until their cancer mutates creating another type of cancer cell requiring another type of drug.

So you see why I am tossing and turning and can’t get to sleep.  The cancer is gone, but the knowledge that I have learned is eating inside me and I am heartbroken to hear and see the percentage of people dying of this illness when it doesn’t have to be that way.

The best part of the research money should go into prevention of cancer.  I have learned so much regarding this subject and have changed my lifestyle, which will prevent the cancer that I had to come back.  You see we are treating this disease with symptoms and not the core of how we got it.  There is a reason, we need to treat each person individually and treat the source and not the symptom.

Wake up and stand with me and change the thinking of the way we treat cancer.  Sign and spread the petition with others so more options are approved for insurance companies to pay.  Individually we are a drop, but together we can be an ocean.
