Hi ! My name is Sadie Taney. I moved to Seaside, OR. from Denver CO. to be closer to my son Ben, his wife Michelle and daugter Haleigh, 15 years old. My son loves to surf and he lives in Olympia, WA, so I figured if I lived close to the ocean they would come to visit often and they did! Over the past 6 years we have had many wonderful weekends and holidays here in Seaside, OR. In April of 2011 our lives changed, Ben lost alot of weight, he was not feeling well and he was unable to eat...the food would not go down....After a series of scopes and scans the biopsy came back... it was cancer....now it is all about ''survival''. His ''normal simple'' life has been destroyed by cancer................. Stage 4-stomach/esophageal cancer. Immediately, they put a chemo port and a feeding tube in Ben and the endless stream of chemo, radiation, PET/CT scans,exploratory surgery, pain management, nausea management and MRI's began. The exploratory surgery showed ''free floating'' cancer cells in the stomach fluid.... Surgery to remove the tumor {stomach} was not an option and the endless stream of chemo, radiation, PET/CT scans etc. started again. Not settling for the oncologists prognosis of 6 months to a year survival, I increased my ''research''. His immune system was being compromised big time, Something had to change. After 4 "2nd opinions"" we found the Seattle Cancer Treatment and Wellness Center/CTCA. After the extensive consultation with them Ben felt very positive in his decision to work with his ''new team'' of oncologists and Naturopathic Physicians....with the right care: no "expiration'' date is needed.
It is now 1 year and 2 months later and Ben's last scope has shown that the tumor in his esophagus and stomach is GONE! What a miracle! However there are still cancer cells present so he has started another round of chemo for 12 weeks and after that another scope and or scan will decide the next step. Ben's attitude is incredibly positive!

Please help my son Ben and his family in his fight.
His savings have been exhausted.
His truck was repossessed.
Of course the medical bills are outrageous!!!
PLEASE, please any donations made will be greatly appreciated.
