Watch this cancer docuseries


You or someone you know who has cancer will benefit from watching this docuseries called the The Truth About Cancer, The Global Quest.  I watched it The Truth About Cancer - A Global Questthe first time a few months back, and was blown away with the information brought from around the world.  Its vision is that cancer does not have to be a death sentence and that there are ways of treating it using less toxic methods.

Ty Bollinger tours all over the world to interview 100+ doctors, scientists, researchers, and cancer survivors who are breaking their code of silence to reveal to you insights and solutions that you have never heard of before.

Just click on this link, The Truth About Cancer – A Global Quest and enter your name and email address to watch it.   The first picture you see is a hyperbaric oxygen tank which is something that Tara Hill is using as part of her cancer treatment.  You may recall reading about her in our previous article a few weeks ago.  You can reread about her alternative treatment here.

The series starts next Tuesday, April 12th and runs for 9 days.  You will not want to miss the wealth of knowledge coming from these people.  Write down their names, research them, sign up for their emails and follow them.

Thanks Ty, for bringing us this information!

 

Have a Minute to Save a Life?


Tara Hill cancer came backThis young 20 year old from the Chicago-land area, is in the fight of her life. She is determined not to use the conventional methods of chemo and radiation to treat her cancer.
Her name is Tara Hill.  She is a sophomore honors student attending St. Xavier University in Chicago. Her education has always been important to her, but now her focus is on healing from cancer.
Tara has Ewing’s Sarcoma, which is a bone and soft tissue cancer. The surgeon she visited at a respectable Chicago hospital told Tara that the mass in her breast is benign; she chose to remove it. After surgery, Tara woke up to the alarming news that the tumor is cancerous and it is in her chest wall. The surgeon expressed to her that they removed the entire tumor; but after reviewing the surgical reports, it was confirmed that they did not.
Tara reasoned to cure herself without the help of conventional doctors by changing her diet to a completely raw, organic diet. After she began college, she ate as any college student does; she ate a lot of sugar and less veggies. Regrettably, 18 months later the cancer came back. It continued to grow quite large and measures to be 8-1/2″ x 6″. It is located in and around her right breast and chest wall. The recommendation of the doctors are to remove her breast, part of her chest wall and part of her lung, along with high doses of chemo and radiation. “Without these treatments”, they say, “You will surely die”.
“I knew for sure that I could not poison myself with the harsh drugs and devastating side effects from chemo and radiation[1]“, Tara says. “Because I saw many family members die horrible deaths due to conventional methods, I want to give myself a better chance at survival”.
Faced with this situation, what would you do? How much are you willing to do to save the life of your young daughter?
Tara and her family’s decision to do what is best for her survival comes at an extremely high cost. Her parents have taken out loans, emptied 401k plans, and any retirement and savings accounts. They are working around the clock at multiple jobs and still are not close to what Tara’s treatments cost.
The whole medical and financial situation is frightening to Tara. However, through faith, the power of natural treatments, and her supportive family, Tara is determined to use alternative methods and is willing to fight for her life before agreeing to chemo, radiation, and more surgery.
First on Tara’s list is to choose a natural doctor to assist her and her family and provide them with resources that empowers her to participate in this healing journey.

Thank you for supporting our #GivingTuesday and AmazonSmile campaign


Giving Tuesday thank you image 3

Thank you so much for remembering Answers for Angels when you shop at AmazonSmile; for your purchases, Amazon donates a portion of it back to us. In addition, thank you for donating yesterday for the #GivingTuesday movement. Your donations to this campaign raised $115 to add to our end of year campaign goal.

With the funds raised yesterday and a spotlight on our end of year crusade beginning next week, we want to be successful in raising $350. Our goal is to sponsor another patient’s visit to an integrative oncologist and pay for prescribed supplements or shots, or pay a bill in their name and more. This doesn’t seem like much but to a cancer patient, consulting with an integrative oncologist and paying out-of-pocket for their medical care that insurance doesn’t cover, it’s a sizable amount. This amount provides another option to treating cancer and participating in healing their body back to health. Moreover, to a patient who’s single and self-supportive, it’s a relief to the challenge of making ends meet.

Your partnership with us is helpful and important to a cancer patient; it changes people’s lives in astonishing ways. People like Vicki O. from Washington with esophageal cancer that can now eat whole foods, something we take for granted, after following an integrative approach to her treatment. In her own words she “feels healthy, energetic, and happy!” This is an amazing testimony to hear about after 3 months of treatment!

Once more, thank you for your donations and please look for more information in the coming weeks as we begin our Spotlight on Giving Tree campaign.

Thank you and take care!

Thank You for Giving and Changing Someone’s Life


At this time of Thanksgiving celebration, our thoughts turn gratefully to you with warm appreciation for your donations/support this past year. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to help a few cancer patients pay for complementary treatments & IV injections as part of their medical care. Your donations changed someone’s life by the programs we provide.

In May 2015, Vickie O. from Washington was diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer. Listen to her testimony that Answers for Angels received 3 months after her diagnosis & after using an integrative treatment.

I feel strong & healthy while fighting.
I feel strong & healthy while fighting.

The conventional oncologist recommended chemo without much hope for improvement – let alone curing the cancer; they painted a dismal outcome. (I cannot eat & swallow whole foods, at this time.)

The integrative oncologist offered several treatments, injections, & supplements with the hope & chance of recovery; I found them to be compassionate & optimistic. The idea of only targeting the cancer cells & not harming the healthy cells appealed to me. With this treatment, I feel strong & healthy while fighting.

This is a picture of Kentucky-born Tawny, a registered nurse, at the age of 27. In high school, she used the tanning bed 4-5 times a week. According to Tawny, she’s now had basal cell carcinoma 5 times & squamous cell carcinoma once.

Prepare yourself: Tawny posted a graphic photo of her skin cancer treatment to Facebook as an awareness tool. “If anyone needs a little motivation to not lie in the tanning bed and sun here ya go!” she writes. “This is what skin cancer treatment can look like.”

As said by Tawny Willoughby, she was first diagnosed with skin cancer at age 21, and now goes to the dermatologist every 6-12 months. The painful picture, showing bright red scabs and bloodied blisters, has been shared more than 66,000 times as a stunning warning about the hazards of skin cancer.

“Melanoma kills, non-melanoma disfigures,” she writes.

Tawny Willoughby sums it up in her Facebook post: “Wear sunscreen and get a spray tan. You only get one skin and you should take care of it,” she writes. “Learn from other people’s mistakes. Don’t let tanning prevent you from seeing your children grow up.”

 

 

Do You Know Your Options to Treating Cancer?


Did you know that there are 3 different options to treating cancer? They are alternative, conventional, and integrative–we have all seen these terms on the Internet and in marketing, but what do they really mean? While the terms used often mean the range of health care approaches with a history of use or origins outside of mainstream medicine, they are actually hard to define and may mean different things to different people. Alternative refers to using a non-mainstream approach in place of conventional medicine. The conventional treatment is the mainstream approach using surgery, radiation, and chemo. Then there’s the integrative approach, which generally refers to using a non-mainstream approach together with conventional medicine.

I’d like to begin talking about the one alternative approach to treating cancer that I know of and it is the Gerson Therapy. Please keep in mind when reading this article that Answers for Angels is not trying to sway your decision one way or the other. The treatment that you decide on is a personal choice and our nonprofit is here to support you with financial assistance in the form of a grant.

Alternative Treatment
Dr. Max Gerson developed the Gerson Therapy in the ‘30’s in Germany approximately 85 years ago. He initially created it to treat his own migraines, and eventually as a treatment for degenerative diseases such as skin tuberculosis, diabetes, and most famously, cancer. In 1938, Dr. Gerson passed his boards and was licensed to practice in the state of New York. For 20 years, he treated hundreds of cancer patients who had been given up to die after all conventional treatments had failed. In 1946, Gerson demonstrated recovered patients before the Pepper-Neely Congressional Subcommittee, during hearings on a bill to fund research into cancer treatment. Although only a few peer-reviewed journals were receptive to Gerson’s then “radical” idea that diet could affect health, he continued to publish articles on his therapy and case histories of healed patients. (A few years before the Subcommittee hearing, our US government and medical team were experimenting with mustard gas. See conventional treatments below.) Dr. Gerson died in 1959 and his daughter Charlotte, and grandson continue his work. Together the 2 of them founded the Gerson Institute in San Diego, California; in addition, they’ve a clinic in Tijuana, Mexico and one in Hungary.

The Gerson treatment consists of each cancer patient consuming about 23 lbs. of organic fruits and veggies per day plus any supplements that are deficient in their body. How does a cancer patient eat 23 lbs. of food per day? They juice it! Every day they receive 13 cups of juice, plus breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dr. Gerson’s Therapy is inspired by the philosophy of the physician, Hippocrates, ‘Let medicine be thy food and food be thy medicine.’ It’s an all-natural treatment, which activates the body’s ability to heal itself through an organic, plant-based diet, raw juices, coffee enemas, and natural supplements– with no damaging side effects. But wait! Go back! Coffee enemas? Why coffee enemas? The enema has a very specific purpose and that is to lower toxins by releasing them from the body. From the patient’s point of view, the coffee enema means help from depression, severe pain, and many other symptoms. Dr. Gerson understood the 2 principle causes of disease are deficiency and toxicity.

(FYI–The Northern Baja Gerson Clinic won’t treat children unless the US oncologist signs a release form. Also, as far as I know, insurance doesn’t cover the Gerson Therapy. If you’re considering the Gerson Therapy, please see Answers for Angels’ guidelines for applying for a grant to help with expenses.)

Conventional Cancer Treatment
Early in the 20th century, only cancers small and localized enough to be completely removed by surgery were curable. Later, radiation was used after surgery to control small tumor growths that were not surgically removed. Finally, chemo was added to destroy small tumor growths that spread beyond the reach of the surgeon and radiotherapist.

The history of chemo began with the first clinical trial investigating the use of mustard gas conducted by 2 pharmacologists Dr. Louis Goodman and Dr. Alfred Gilman in 1942 approximately 73 years ago. The clinical trial involved a patient, identified as J.D., diagnosed with advanced lymphosarcoma who received the first therapeutic trial with nitrogen mustard in low doses. To everyone’s amazement, the tumor regressed considerably but the effects were not permanent, J.D. died 6 months later. In the late 1960s, with the introduction of combinations of chemo agents like nitrogen mustard, vincristine, methotrexate and prednisone (MOMP protocol) more and more patients had longer remission from cancer, allowing it to be conceived as a curable disease, particularly for diseases like lymphomas and leukemia. Many other cancers can be controlled with chemo for long periods, even if they are not cured.

(FYI—this is the cancer treatment that children are required to take in the USA. If you’re considering the conventional treatment for cancer, please see Answers for Angels’ guidelines for applying for a grant.)

Integrative Treatment
The third option to cancer treatment is the integrative treatment, which generally refers to using a non-mainstream approach together with conventional medicine. There are several integrative approaches to treating cancer but I will only touch on 3 of them. One is Dr. Burzynski, in Texas; second is Dr. Block, in Illinois; and lastly is the Cancer Treatment Centers of America with several clinics across the USA and one in Illinois.

For approximately 38 years, Dr. Burzynski’s cancer research and care is inspired by the philosophy of the physician Hippocrates to “First, do no harm.” True to this philosophy, his approach to treatments is based on the natural biochemical defense system of our body, capable of combating cancer with minimal impact on healthy cells. The Burzynski Clinic is located in Houston, Texas and was established in 1977.

The treatment options consist of identification of genetic markers enabling their medical team to assess a patient’s response to different medications and select the most optimal treatment. They use approved targeted medications, which are drugs that selectively block the growth and spread of cancer without affecting the healthy cells. Targeted therapies interfere with cancer cell growth differently than cytotoxic chemo and at various points during the development, growth, and spread of cancer. By switching off the signals that make cancer cells grow and divide uncontrollably, targeted cancer therapies can help stop the growth of cancer cells. Targeted medications may be easier to tolerate than standard chemo and radiation. Several targeted therapeutics are approved by the FDA and are available for treatment at the Burzynski Clinic.

(FYI–The Burzynski Clinic treats children. Also, as far as I know, they accept some insurance.)

Dr. Keith Block, M.D., founded the Block Center in 1980 approximately 35 years ago. They’re located in Skokie, Illinois. Dr. Block is an internationally recognized expert in integrative oncology. Referred to by many as the “father of integrative oncology”, Dr. Block combines cutting-edge conventional treatment with individualized and scientifically based complementary and nutraceutical therapies.

To best serve their patients, Block Center combines state-of-the-art conventional cancer treatments with scientifically based integrative therapies including:

• Targeted molecular therapies
• Personalized nutrition and supplements, using organic fruits and veggies
• Access to clinical trials
• Supportive mind-body or bio behavioral strategies
• Advanced laboratory testing
• Chrono modulated chemo
• Physical exercise regimens
• Diverse chemotherapies and immunotherapies; experimental and off-label treatments

The Block Center accepts a wide range of insurance plans.

(FYI–I’m not sure that The Block Center treats children in their facility.)

Last but not least, there’s the Cancer Treatment Centers of America located in Zion, Illinois founded in 1988 approximately 27 years ago.

Richard J. Stephenson, following the death of his mother, Mary Brown Stephenson, from cancer, founded Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA). After his mother’s diagnosis, Richard and his family searched for the most advanced and effective cancer treatments available. They were disappointed to discover that world-renowned cancer hospitals were not focused on providing their mother with the comprehensive care and advanced treatment options she needed. Sadly, Mrs. Stephenson passed away before she could watch her grandchildren grow and mature.

To keep his mother’s spirit alive, Richard vowed to change the face of cancer care. He created a new model of care that changed the way oncologists, surgeons and other clinical professionals treat patients with cancer. This whole-person cancer treatment approach combined with a compassionate, nurturing environment is now known as the Mother Standard® of care and provides a patient-centered approach to cancer treatment.

Their cancer experts are committed to bringing the latest technologies and advanced treatment options to patients sooner. At the same time, they support the patient with therapies to reduce side effects, boost energy levels, and keep the patient strong during treatment. The patient’s dedicated team of doctors and other clinicians will take time to understand their unique diagnosis and needs. Then, they’ll work together to develop an integrated cancer treatment plan tailored specifically to the patient.

At each appointment, the patient’s medical oncologist, clinic nurse, registered dietitian, naturopathic oncology provider, and nurse care manager come to the patient. By meeting with the cancer treatment team in one room, the patient gets answers to their questions and enjoys greater comfort, convenience, and privacy.

To prevent treatment delays or interruptions, the patient receives integrative oncology services to help them stay strong, boost their immune system, combat side effects, and maintain their well-being. They’ll receive nutrition therapy, naturopathic medicine, pain management, oncology rehabilitation, chiropractic care, mind-body medicine, and spiritual support.

CTCA accepts a wide range of insurance plans.

(FYI–I’m not sure that CTCA treats children in their facility.)

So there you have it! A little history on some of the different cancer treatment options in addition to their unique treatment methods available. A lot more can be said about these options, but…If ever you’ve a question please ask me.
