The family and friends of Julie Paul are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against cervical cancer. Please show your support.

In summer of 2010 my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer by the Kern County Community Clinic, where she went because she had no insurance. Just a year prior she had lost everything during bankruptcy. Her real estate, retirement, business, credit, in short everything she had ever worked for was gone. In the process of rebuilding her business she fell ill.

The doctor at the county clinic suggested chemo and radiation treatment but did not give her much hope for sucess, just a little extened lifespan. Both the cost and the prognosis caused my mom to decline this treatment. While the disease progressed unchecked, my mom researched alternative ways to treat the cancer with herbs, vitamins, and other substances.

She saw a chinese herbalist, a homeopath, learned to do healing meditations and breathing techniques. She changed her entire life and focused completely on healing. Slowly she regained her strength and the visible tumors stopped growing. She did not want to burden us, her children with her support, so as soon as she felt she had the strength she returned to work.

It was too soon! Within days she fell ill again, too weak to take care of herself, confined to bedrest and loosing weight rapidly. The tumors began to grow again.
A very generous family friend, a naturopathic practitioner with over 30 years experience who chooses to remain anonymous came to see her. He suggested to immediately take her the clinic of a naturopathic doctor who offers a new approach with great success.

We called. The treatment would last for 5 days and cost a total of $5000. We did not have the money to do so. Our friend offered to lend us the first $5000 due to mom's rapidly deteriorating condition. He knew we can't pay him back right now and we thank him for his generosity, the loan, the referral, the free teatments he is giving her since then to help her in the recovery process.

A few weeks after mom returned from the first week of treatments she had regained much of her strength, all visible tumors had stopped growing and a few had actually begun to shrink. This is great news and hope for all of us. Due to the severity of the cancer she will need multiple treatments. The doctor at the clinic recommends 8 treatments in 8 months and says there is a very good chance for her complete recovery, especially since she is already doing so much to speed her healing.

Now we need the help of all of you. Please donate money to help us raise the $ 50,000 to cover the cost of treatments and traveling expenses to and from the clinic.
