When I was 18 I was diagnosed with nonseminoma testicular cancer. It's the rare type of testicular cancer that kills you fast. After having my right
testicle surgically removed, I was put on chemotherapy treatments. The reason being that the cancer had spread to my lymph nodes. Cisplatin was the
main drug in the concoction. I can't remember the name of the other two.
I only went through one of the three chemotherapy cycles. Each cycle lasted 3 weeks.
I had decided that the drugs would kill me before the cancer was killed, so I took things into my own hands.
I am 5'8" and weighed 105 lbs(down from 135), and it only took the drugs 3 weeks to get me there. I couldn't walk, sleep, eat, stand, think.. and so
on. I couldn't even dream when I slept.
I used Doctor Budwigs concoction. I used Beta 1-3, 1-6 D glucan. I took essiac. I alkalized my body by eating alkalizing foods.
I eliminated all simple sugar intake(soda, sweets, potatoes etc), all wheat(glutan), all acidic foods, and all hydrogenated oils.
Tons of vitamin C.
I also practiced deep breathing and exercise.
My doctors told me I would die.
I'm 22 and cancer free. I still practice most of what I listed above. It worked.
I think I got cancer because I was suicidal. My body was just helping my mind to achieve what I wanted.
The ordeal showed me that I want to live. Our willpower is ridiculous. It's most of what we are and what we have.
I'm no oncologist, or expert, but if anyone wants more information on what my methods for survival were, please inquire.
Now I find myself in a new tribulation. Eventhough I had insurace, I owe a collection agency 3000 for a ct and a pet scan. For this reason my credit
is ruined, and so I will be unable to attend college next semester. I work two jobs(25 hours a week), but it is only enough to pay for my current
fulltime college status and car payments/gas at the moment.
It's interesting to see how the system beats you down when you are down.
You survived cancer when you were 18?
Yes, I did.
Okay. Well, then you can't go to college anymore.
Okay... Well, I'll make it happen somehow. They said I'd die, but I made them wrong. I'll keep making this life thing happen no matter what.
I might be damaged, covered in scars, bald, and weak, but I will not die.
Take risk-never care,
