Jill Henderson – Show Me Oz -For those of you who read my blog regularly, I want to step out of my normal role as a writer and share with all of you something that means so much to me. This past February, I lost my oldest brother Patrick to glioblastoma brain cancer. Right off the bat, Pat decided to do what his doctors suggested. He had surgery, then radiation, then two separate attempts at chemo which both landed him in ICU. He knew he couldn’t do it again and needed to find another way. Many caring people gave suggestions as to alternative cancer treatments, but researching even just a few was extremely time consuming and confusing for everyone. I wish I had found then what I am about to share with you now.
Glioblastoma is a very deadly form of cancer. The standard prognosis is 24 months, tops. My brother was already pretty fit and eating a healthy diet that included organic and homegrown fruits, veggies, eggs and meat. And after the diagnosis, he ramped up his diet to include a dizzying array of vitamins, super foods, herbs and healing plants. And while my brother’s deep and abiding Faith and seemingly endless smile filled everyone with hope from the beginning and right up to the very end, it was a fight he didn’t win. I could talk all day about Patrick’s story and perhaps one day I will share it with all of you, but right now I want to do more than that to honor my brother. Today, I want to share with you the thing I wished we’d found at the earliest stages of my brother’s cancer – an amazing docu-series called The Truth About Cancer: A Global Quest.
It hurt to watch this series so soon after losing my brother, but I knew I wanted to arm myself with the knowledge. At least I would be ready to help if it ever happened to me – or to someone else I knew. Patrick did use some of the methods and herbs espoused in the series, but it turns out that those were just the tip of the alternative cancer treatment iceberg. This series is a must-see for everyone, whether you have or had cancer, or know someone who does.
Did you know that today 1 out of 3 Americans will be diagnosed with some kind of cancer? That’s a staggering number, don’t you think? And when you are diagnosed with cancer, no one gives you time to think about what to do or how best to approach it. Everything is rush, rush. Surgery, radiation and chemo. End of story. And if you don’t go along with the program, you’re likely to get a brow beating from your doctors. But what do you really know about cancer, cancer treatment and alternatives to Western allopathic cancer treatment?
I’m begging you not to wait until you or someone you love is diagnosed with cancer to learn more about the alternative healing practices talked abut in this series. I’ve already seen it once and I’ll be sitting in again starting tonight – hopefully with you.
I’m not promoting The Truth About Cancer: A Global Quest for money or brownie points or anything else but to honor my brother Patrick’s memory and I because I believe everyone ought to see it at least once. It may save your life, or the life of someone you know or love very much. And at the very least, maybe you’ll learn something about how to prevent it from happening to you.
