Back in 2011 Janna was diagnosed with skin cancer, which was cut out, leaving her with a lovely 4 inch scar on her stomach. One year later she was diagnosed with Uterine cancer, that was treated with a hysterectomy. After a two year gap, in May of 2015 she was diagnosed with Colorectal cancer. Quickly after this diagnosis she began radiation and chemo treatments. After her tumors shrunk to a size doctors were comfortable with, she then had surgery to remove them. This was followed by 6 months of chemo, this time, instead of a pill it was a drip treatment.
On February 15th 2016, which was two weeks before her last chemo drip treatment, she developed blood clots in her lungs. Her Doctor felt that this was probably brought on from yet more cancer. She was told to do a 6 week follow-up CT scan. At her follow up scan they discovered tumors in her right lung. They have determined that this is not a NEW form of cancer, but rather it was her Colon cancer that spread into her lungs.
After an unsuccessful stint with the American Cancer center in Arizona back in May of 2016, Janna returned home, and started a natural path regimen. In May 2017 the decision was made to head to Tijuana in order to start the Hoxsey treatment. After 3 months of being on this treatment she started to have headaches and some neurological issues. A CT scan showed a 4 CM tumor on the left side of her brain. Further scans showed that the tumor in her lungs doubled in size from her previous sized tumors of 4 and 6 CM, and there are additional tumors present at this time.
