Hello, dear Sparklers! It's been a mile a minute in Bobbi world. We got the results from the biopsy from Moffitt Cancer Center and it was not good news. Not good news at all. DH now has the sarcoma in his lungs.
This particular cancer...Liposarcoma is a disease of the fatty and connective tissues and it is a MONSTER! Very aggressive and fast growing. DH discovered a lump and had the tumor removed from his groin last June and the surgeon said he felt that he got it all with wide clean margins..DH was in great health until about mid January of this year. Then he got a hacking horrible cough which we thought was pneumonia but it turned out to be the raging nasty cancer.
It doesn't respond to chemo or radiation, usually only surgery to remove the nasty tumor has some chance of working and since DH went that route and it traveled to his lungs anyhow there is that.
I know only too well how scary our future looks but I prefer not to be crippled by fear but to look at this nasty parasite as an invader and what do you do with invaders? You go to WAR!
You gather intel on their strength and invasion techniques, then you gather your own tribe of fighters who will educate you and help you choke off the supply roads (fuel) into your home (your body) and you FIGHT!
Cancer needs a revolution and it needs to come from the people infected and affected (caregivers). We can no longer hand over our power to someone else in hopes that they have our best interest at heart.
Some do and are good doctors but most have absolutely NO idea of what good nutrition and good health even looks like. They are taught to hurl medicine at any symptoms and are mainly interested in the profit-making abilities that chronic disease offers them. Hey...they certainly paid their dues in massive educational costs and years of residency to achieve their position so you really can't blame them for wanting to finally make profits. I don't...but I'm also cognizant of where they are coming from and it's a typical human trait...self interest.
And my oh my....Cancer has been the biggest profit maker of all time. It's actually part of our Gross National Product by now. Cancer brings in BILLIONS of dollars every single year!
It fuels so many jobs and research facilities and hospitals and monster big Pharma that I can tell you there will NEVER be a reliable cure. It's just too profitable to have sick people returning again and again rather than well people who recover and stop using medical services.
What would happen to all of those empty beds in the hospital and all of the employees that would have no job? What would happen to all of the mammoth complexes of research facilities sitting vacant and the legions of scientists and researchers looking for the 'cure'?
All gone...think about it my friend then tell me how much inducement the AMA (American Medical Association) has to squash their #1 money cow?
Have you really thought about this? I hadn't until it touched my most beloved spouse. Most people don't research or have the time to think about this dreaded disease because they really don't get the opportunity. You are RUSHED to surgery, you are hauled in for chemo, you are chastened to get that radiation and to do it NOW...because if you don't you will surely DIE!
I call this murder for profit. And...only because at my ripe old age I've seen it happen with our friends over and over and OVER!
They are miserable taking 'the treatment' that wipes out their entire immune system and they even get declared cancer free for a short period of time. But cancer is a tricky devil...it can mutate and reinvent itself and once it reattacks and it will ALWAYS reattack the poor immune system has been wiped out and has not a prayer of fighting it.
It also doesn't just feel on sugar...it will go for pretty much any other fuel it can find. Fats, proteins...it is very adaptable so you have to know what you are dealing with. How do you do that..research, research, research.
You have to know what type of cancer you have and then you have to find what it's preferred fuel is and then you have to cut off its fuel to weaken the bast**d and then when it is weak and vulnerable and can't fight as hard to survive and replicate....you KILL it.
This can be done with anti-oxidants and 'off label' drugs and herbs that the medical society doesn't want you to know about because their patents have expired...and they can't make MONEY on them anymore.
How's that make you feel...if they can't make money they withhold this information from you when it might actually help you and most likely without all of the caustic secondary complications.
In fact, even if you come across a good doctor that would tell you about these treatments they probably won't in fear that the AMA will yank their license and REST assured they will...they want NO ONE to tread on their money mill.
Even with your best efforts, in squashing cancer with your own due diligence you can't guarantee that cancer won't try to rear it's ugly head again as it tries to resurrect itself over and over again.
So you have to be vigilant and clean up your diet and continue to bat it down..maybe forever...but that's okay if you can still be alive and functioning as a human being with places to go and people to see...wouldn't you say?
You have to be your own best advocate and explore ALL of your options before you cave into the first scare tactics thrown at you.
Why is the medical profession so hell-bent on getting you in and getting you in FAST...because they know their bag of tricks is close to being dumped open.
Those barbaric methods of cut, burn and poison is being questioned. People are starting to wonder...hey..why isn't a cure being found after some half decade of searching?
You can fool some of the people some of the time...but you CAN'T fool all of the people ALL of the time. Thank the heavens we baby boomers might be their toughest lot...we are the questioners, we are the 'show me the proof' that what you are pedaling is working.
WHERE'S THE BEEF??
Remember that commercial...I LOVED it!
So as time goes on you will hear more and more about my search for the truth and my ongoing mission to find something that might work for my beloved husband of 41 years. We celebrated our anniversary yesterday at the doctor's office. UGH! But at least we were together!
Poor darling...he is hooked up to a Vit. C and nutrient bag in hopes it will help his dehydration. He is down to 168 lbs now from a muscular 205. It just breaks my heart to see him disappearing before my very eyes but I can't crumple and fold... I CAN'T give up...I'll NEVER give up.
Maybe this search won't be of benefit to him...maybe his cancer is too aggressive and too advanced to take down but I'm on the job and he knows I've got his back!
I KNOW I saved our little rescue cat Macklemore by research, research, RESEARCH. He went to the Vet came home drugged up and sicker than when he went in. When I gave him the drugs she had prescribed he got sicker and sicker. I KNOW my natural remedy saved the little guy, he's better than ever (knock wood) and it's been well over a year.
One other huge shock I wanted to tell you about for my hubby was a recommendation from our doctor to take Ensure to bolster his nutrition and hopefully give him a little more pep.
Guess what~ Ensure is FULL of sugar and nasty chemicals. WHY did I not label read...I ALWAYS label read! So it is NOT what a cancer patient should be taking...you are merely feeding the monster with your doctor's blessings.
Like I sadly say...there is no profit in healthy people...keep em' sick and keep em' coming back...it's just a pitiful reality in today's greedy immoral world.
I wanted to share some new things that came into the gallery but it's almost closing time and I've got to zoom to the grocery store and home to my sweetie pie!
I don't mean to bash the medical society...so please don't be upset and lash out at me...I know there are some REAL angels in that profession...Moffitt Cancer Center has been awesome...and our oncologist was very truthful in saying that if the sarcoma had moved to the lungs it might not be survivable. At least he was honest and didn't pussyfoot the issue, I can admire that.
But we have also experienced a female oncologist doctor down here in Naples I call her 'Barracuda Woman' because it was SO apparent on our consultation that she didn't care a WHIT about my husband...only getting him hooked up to her money (chemo) machine...in those instances... it's so discouraging.
You have to question this when chemo and radiation methods have been used for decades with a trail of destruction for the patients choosing it...it just doesn't feel like a cure is really being sought. Believe me...I know of what I speak...I'm in the thick of the cancer jungle right now and it's full of scary, scary unknown stuff!
As I say...if I know it...I'm going to share it because that is what sparkies do for each other. We look out and protect each other's backs! I actually heard of this 'off label' protocol from a darling sparky friend in Cali...and believe me I had done thousands and thousands of internet searches and most likely would have NEVER have come across this amazing information if she hadn't been kind enough to tell me about it. Thank you darling Fredie...from the bottom of my heart!
