Roses Fight Against Lung Cancer

We have lowered our goal from 25,000 to $20,000 because of a private donation! Thank you everyone for all the help we have received!   Some know her as Mom, Sister and Aunt, but for many, she is known as                                                “Grandma Rose”   A few months ago, Grandma Rose at the young age of 74, was diagnosed with metaplastic carcinoma, a very rare form of breast cancer that affects less than 1% of women. The decision was made to remove the large tumor with a mastectomy. Just a couple of days after the surgery, she was told that the X-rays that she had needed for surgery showed she also had tumors in her lungs.   After a biopsy, Drs confirmed she had 2 types of cancer. Both Metaplastic Carcinoma and Non Small Cell Lung Cancer. Stage 3A cancer and the prognosis is not good. Without an aggressive round of Chemotherapy and Radiation treatment, Oncologists advise that it is likely she will not live to see out the year.   After many hours of thought and prayer Grandma Rose has chosen to try to fight this cancer with the method that HAS WORKED for her husband, Grandpa Bill age 77, who was diagnosed 10 months ago with stage 4 colon cancer. He was given the same treatment recommendation and was told he would be lucky to live a year if he did not follow it.   When Grandpa Bill was diagnosed, as a family it decided that we would try to help him beat the odds he was given, we aimed to do this by going with an alternative method of treatment provided by Dr. James Forsythe in Reno, NV. This method combines the best of modern medicine and natural immune assistance to overcome the ravaging side effects that come with straight chemotherapy and radiation.   Just 2 weeks ago, as Grandma Rose celebrated the PET scan and blood work that declared her husband in full remission from cancer, she knew she was just at the beginning of her own fight to overcome the “statistical odds” that say it cannot be done.   Why we need your help! Thankfully, Grandma Rose has Medicare which covers all costs except for 20% of traditional medications and oncology procedures, but going the alternative method is not covered at all! Immediate family finances were depleted in funding Grandpa Bill’s alternative treatment costs just a short 9 months ago. Although there are never any guarantees with life, please help us provide the same chance at full remission for her.   All of us that love her and that are working to help her in her fight to live, deeply appreciate the gift of any amount that you feel you are able to give. Our sincerest THANKS to you all.   If you or your loved ones would like more information on this treatment for cancer please go to the URL link provided.
