What do you say about a major medical diagnosis on a child that is seven-years-old? When hearing the word leukemia – terror ran through my veins, so much so, that I ran out of the room howling. I thought for sure a leukemia diagnosis was an automatic death sentence because I had lost two adult friends to leukemia and that is all that I knew about it.
After I came to my senses I decided to use every tool possible in this medical situation that struck me as a war… Luckily for me, my mother was way ahead of her time and followed a very famous author who wrote at least five best sellers regarding health and maintaining excellent health. Her name was Adele Davis and she is considered the key person to enlighten people on diet and vitamins in the late 60’s and early 70’s. I grew up taking vitamins and natural remedies long before these became mainstream. By the time I gained adulthood I had studied a voluminous amount of books on diet, health, natural remedies, exercise and vitamins. With use over the years I learned what worked on myself, friends and family. Thankfully, this was my history before cancer came into our lives.
When Emily was first diagnosed I spent many hours on the computer every night at the hospital. Many nights I cried in frustration due to the lack of real answers to help my daughter. After weeks in the hospital with my failed-nightly- computer- searches, when we got home I was on Amazon ordering many books for my mission. Yes, that is what I called it – my mission – to get us through treatment with as little damage as possible. I wanted real answers that worked from people who had been through this road. Very few answers existed at that time. Literally it was like a needle in a haystack to find one solution in a book with over 300 pages!
The main formula that got us through cancer was to use chemo, follow medical advice, while also learning how to get approval from our Oncologists for vitamins and other valid therapies. It is my belief that medical plus alternative/comprehensive therapies are the best possible marriage to get through any dire medical situation. Yes, there are answers out there that definitely help but there are also charlatans that make wild cure claims while trying to steal as much of your money as they can. Hopefully this website helps you wade through these areas armed with more information to help you make the best decision for your situation.
Eventually I was able to lessen terrible side effects which then improved my daughters quality of life. This was my total focus for almost three years!
Here you will find a website of all the “what and how’s” Emilie and I used to get through treatment. It was by using any means possible to improve quality of life, lessen side effects of chemo, while still trying to have some sort of life and remaining positive through out. These are the tools and methods that I want to share with you in your own mission with cancer. If you need additional help you can contact me through this website and I would be happy to help in any way that I can.
Best Wishes and Most Sincerely,
