Let the journey continue…

Let the journey continue…

June 17, 2014 6 tubes hanging outside my body, draining junk from the trunk., pain from them wrapping around everywhere, clumpy breasts still needing to be “filled in” for reconstruction,   Clean diet, more sleep, slower pace, more peace, informing men and women, making MY story a story of LIVING!  Green is essential.  Green is cleaner, Green is the NEW LIFE that people need to pay attention to, especially the medical community. Do...

And I will!

And I will!

June 10, 2014 Belief can be a tricky thing!  It can send your bags packing or flown to the wind in the wreckage of LIFE if left to the winds we encounter as humans on this journey of ours.  What belief entails, I feel,  is a story that is wrapped up in hope and faith.   So here are some thoughts as I ponder my cancer protocol for the future and rolled into surgery to make the toughest decision I have ever made in my life!  Will and want can not...

A TRUE 4th opinion

A TRUE 4th opinion

April 2014 After a discussion with a client about her health history, where she wanted to be, where she was and her cancer she had survived— my interest was peaked.  Her doctors name had been brought up a few times.  I wanted a TRUE 4th opinion on my situation and did not want to go out of state.  I blew it off, but a few days later, I was on a “boobie buddy” board and they listed doctors.  Dr. Hernandez was on that list along...

What are you willing to hedge?

What are you willing to hedge?

April 21, 2014 My visit was great— I told him I wanted to monitor my progress, he said he could, but in the end— NO DATA showed we could TRULY monitor DCIS Insitu.  No biomarkers are present, it is a ductal cancer that sits and waits….. waits to spread, sit or Metastasize.  What would I do?  “Bottom line” I said, “If I hedge my bets at 43, can I kick it and not worry with diet, lifestyle and exercise...

Life is NOT a trial, it is the real deal

Life is NOT a trial, it is the real deal

February 12, 2014 My father’s birthday— he had passed away two years before from lung cancer after working in the uranium and cole mines during and after WWII.  He was 83.  This was my day to visit what I now call, “the cancer mill”.  This renowned cancer hospital has top notch clinicians and state of the art equipment.  What they lack real consideration other than what science could prove.  Though science was proving a...

So many options….I left empowered

So many options….I left empowered

December 27th Released with rat poison to thin my blood, I declared I would not be seeing an oncologist or any other surgeons until I had answers. So many options…..  I left empowered.         Turkey-tail mushroom has been shown to kill all types of cancer cells? What about Apricot seeds? Raw Green Diets have been shown to run cancer out by starving it to it’s death, whilst cleaning your veins!...

Vital checks….Cannot sleep

Vital checks….Cannot sleep

December 26th 4:00 am vital checks…. cannot sleep.  My mind stirs with irritation over “cells” they call “cancer”.  Really!  They are cells.  Why would I take something out that is NOT a threat?  Something that is NOT immediate?  Fear…. that is all they brought with them.  I pondered this and thought, who is the father of FEAR?  What do I want in my life?  PEACE or FEAR?  I choose— PEACE.  When my...

To the E.R. – Hard to Breathe

To the E.R. – Hard to Breathe

December 23, 2014 At 4:00 am I woke up in excruciating pain.  I could not breathe and was rushed to the hospital with a blood clot in both lungs.  Everyone excited about “breast cancer” when all I had was cells and I WAS IN THE EMERGENCY BECAUSE I COULD NOT BREATHE!!!! Admitted, doped, slept, Christmas in the hospital and very weak.  While I was there— I was recruited over and over by a nearby doctor who wanted me to use her...

When your pathology report came back…

When your pathology report came back…

“Your breast reduction went very well Mrs. McDonald.  You are healing well and I am pleased with your progress.  It is standard for us to send in all tissue to have a pathology report completed.  Here is yours.  I am sorry to say, you have DCIS Insitu.”  That is a ductal carcinoma that is cellular at this point, but you must have it removed.” Are you freaking kidding me?  Going from a K to a comfortable C was GLORIOUS…....
