Greetings, I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how happy I am for you both and that you have been an inspiration to me.
My 34 year old husband, John, was diagnosed in November 2011 with neuro endocrine pancreatic, stage iv. At first we did the conventional route, but as I researched more and more, I realized that chemo was not the answer.
I came across your site early last year when I was doing research on Dr Burzynski. While I didn't completely share your perspective on that point, I whole heartedly agreed with the direction you took into holistic living, so I've followed your journal updates since then.
John has managed to stabilize his tumors through nutrition that is similar on most points to what you are doing...we do things a bit different in some areas, but overall it is the same concept--keep it as God intended. We did the diet in conjuction with chemo for a few months, then in September, John stopped chemo, because we felt that it was really doing nothing more than killing him.
More recently, John began treatment with a naturopath in Portland in December. The foundation of the program is the Kelley Enzyme Therapy and the doc has enhanced it with some of his own protocol. You may be familiar with this, as Dr Gonzalez in NYC has gained some notoriety with his own work with the Kelley Enzyme Therapy. Anyway, John got some bloodwork back last week that indicates that his cancer is becoming less active and he finally has some hope! It's been hard because John has been a willing participant in holistic living, but I don't think he ever allowed himself to believe that he had a chance of beating this. Everytime, I saw a post about Wayne's progress, it gave me renewed strength for the both of us, so I want to thank you for sharing your story on here. It is people like you that light a way for others that may not realize that they have a better option and a chance at life. I recently began documenting our journey, because I believe that God has put this challenge in our lives so that we may be a testament to others. Looking back, I wish that I had documented from the start, but am glad that I am doing it now. If you want to check out my whopping 2 posts, you can at John Agger's caring bridge.
You both continue to be in my prayers for continued health and happiness!
