Sleeping Beauty Has Cancer

May and June were ecspecially tough on us.  Lindy was in and out of the hospital several times with fluid around her heart and then her lungs.  The cancer irritates the good cells which create “fluid” in response.  When this happens too fast, the fluid cannot drain and builds up and puts pressure on organs. 

In her case, the fluid was fatally interfering with her heart function, so a heart surgeon had to go in and cut a hole in the lining around the heart to allow for the fluid to drain elsewhere. In her case, the fluid then collected in a lung causing extreme discomfort and shortness of breath.   All this and she’s still going through chemo on top of it all.   She’s a valiant and graceful fighter. 

People always ask me; how are the kids doing through all this?  All-in-all, I have to say that thanks to our support system, the kids are doing okay.  Don’t get me wrong, they have their own time of tears and times of processing what’s going on around them.   For Samantha (our 3 year old), Sleeping Beauty has cancer too – why else would she sleep so much?  The kids and I pray so much for a miracle for Lindy every day.   

Lindy has a CAT scan Friday 7/6 at Spectrum to check how the chemo is working.

    What they fail to disclose is that Chemo in general would leave you with compromised immune system, and a faster spreading cancer. Only the immune system can prevent the spread of cancer. Tumor existence is NOT what you should measure your success in fighting cancer by… (It might turn necrotic or calcified, and still show up).Watch for too much CT… it causes cancer!!!
    Hello, my name is Ari, I am a survivor (so far…) of two cancers, a widower of a cancer victim (now re-married..) and is dedicated to fighting cancer, and helping others do so.
    I lived in Toronto, Canada (my family is in southern California), and last year, after marriage, I moved to the Philippines. I am majority owner of a Dialysis clinic, and built a unique cancer clinic, the one I dreamt of having when my first wife was struggling. I took her to Mexico clinics twice, for treatments (which were very successful!), talked to dozens of physicians, and always found lack of properly equipped clinics, which could do a lot better if they were.
    Along the way, I have gained insight of how proper Hyperthermia should be applied. This is a method which doubles the success rate of conventional therapies, and alternative ones as well, provided it is done properly. I have purchased the most powerful device for this, and added two other types of devices, which when applied in the right order, prevent a process of DE-sensitizing of cancer cells to the effects of specific frequency hyperthermia. We also do mild whole body hyperthermia in order to strengthen the immune system (with no side effects),and help reach the right thermo-therapeutic levels within the tumour.(the right temperature simply destroys the tumour…). There are also other aspects to this, biological ones, which for lack of commercial incentive (UN-patentable..) is not pursued by multinational pharmaceutical corporations which control all medical research in the field.
    I also introduced other forms of immunotherapy, and alternative cytotoxic elements, such as Helixor, a mistletoe extract, which has three times better success rate then most chemo agents, without the side effects.
    I can give information about many clinics I learned about, (mainly in Mexico and Germany)
