Here's the latest update on my treatment.
I Just got home about a week ago from Texas.  I was able to start on Dr.  Burzynski treatment. Because of so many giving, selfless, charitable people, we raised $50,000.00! Which allowed me to start his antineoplastin treatment. Antineoplastins are Dr. Burzynskis form of chemo therapy. Because of much prayer, faith and fasting there is very little of the tumor that still remains. What still remains is believed to be stopped with Dr. B's antineoplastin drug.  I'm on it and I feel great. I feel like I'm back to my old self. I will continue on the drug for 8 months. I figure if I have a few more fundraisers we will have reached the goal we set for the total treatment. This is costing our family $5000.00 a month. Any money left over, if any, I will donate to another cancer patient to help with treatment. So please continue to spread the word.
 I truly feel like I'm getting a second chance at life.
A second chance, could you imagine being told you only have a few years left to live by an oncologist. Then; meeting with Dr. B and being told he can take care of this tumor. He's helped 100's of patients with this same type of cancer and they are 20 years+. They are going STRONG! I believe him. I've seen their pictures and heard their stories. I met with many of them at the cancer center.
I honestly feel like I have been given a second chance.
Basically; the only alternative was to do radiation on my brain. Which because of the tumors location would lead to blindness in my right eye, I would become slow and could possibly lose my ability to walk....When it's in your brain you cannot take risks like this.
Thank you to all those who have supported our family, we owe everything to you.

Because I have been given much I too must give.

  1. Amee - It's nice to read about your progress and experiences and your beautiful family. My husband and I saw the Burzynski documentary on Netflix a few weeks ago and sat down to watch it one evening with you in mind. It was fascinating! We wish you the best and send prayers and love your way!
