    and the cancer education we are receiving.

    She is going to make it.  I will write her story once the process is complete.

    I am also blessed to be in a position to be helpful.  We laugh and cry a lot.

    It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

      Also...for your friend in need, who is lucky to have you as support.  We all should be so lucky!

      Woops! Study Accidentally Finds Chemotherapy Makes Cancer Far Worse

      ...Meanwhile, dirt cheap substances like turmeric and ginger have consistently been found to effectively shrink tumors and combat the spread of cancer.

      In a review of 11 studies, it was found that turmeric use reduced brain tumor size by a shocking 81%.

      Further research has also shown that turmeric is capable of halting cancer cell growth altogether.

      One woman recently hit the mainstream headlines by revealing her victory against cancer with the principal spice used being turmeric.

      Note:  Buy tumeric at health food stores, as it is NON-irradiated so you actually get the real health benefits.
      Also... check out baking soda and cancer cure.  Really.

      Best to all.

        And once a day, after a meal, she takes 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda.

        Sadly, she was a Stage III-IV and has a young child so we raced to Huntsman's cancer center, throwing kitchen sink at this one.

        I'll write the long story when she is on the other side of this scare.

        A friend of ours has had success with NEEM, too, but you have to be uber careful about supplements taken while undergoing chemo.

        True tidbit:  We both chimed in at the same time and said "But we hate chemo" as our tears squirted the doctor delivering the bad news.

        We have taken this stance:  The enemy of my enemy is my friend.  

        It's not anywhere near as bad as we had anticipated.  She has not vomited once!

        It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

          what other foods, vitamins, supplements she's taking.  Some may cause complications.  A friend of mine undergoing chemo for bc once drank a gallon of some strange kind of mushroom concoction.  It caused her kidneys to fail.

          I had chemo before surgery and was fortunate to find that the chemo completely eradicated my 3 cm breast cancer tumor.  So it does work, it just depends on the type of breast cancer.  Since then, research has helped docs tailor treatment regimens to the specific type of cancer, so that helps a lot.

          Please stand by. I'm looking for a new sig line.
