Journal entry by Arissa Johnson

Well since the last time I wrote.. while checking my kidneys they found 2 more tumours.. one on my ovary and one on my uterus. So I will be needing to see a specialist for that. I am first on the list for my brain surgery, so I am thinking I should be hearing from them soon now that phase 2 has opened up. A little nervous now that it is getting closer, but coping pretty well. I decided to see a naturopathic doctor since the regular doctors aren’t doing a lot in the meantime. I was started on IV therapy and anti cancer drugs and supplements. The doctor made me feel more hopeful as he said the IV will boost my immune system to help me along my journey. I want to start on another therapy from Germany which isn’t covered in Canada so I am going to try get some help to be able to afford it. Hoping things get rolling now. Fingers crossed 🤞
