Hi my name is Autumn Larkin....here is a brief summary as to what had brought me to this point in my life.

Hi my name is Autumn Larkin....here is a brief summary as to what had brought me to this point in my life. In 2003,at age 27, I was 1st diagnosed with stage 1 Breast Cancer...where I underwent chemo and radiation for the next 6 months.

All was well up until April 19 2009 when I became increasingly short of breath and was found to have a large pleural effusion (almost 4 liters of cancerous fluid on my right lung.) Then I was diagnosed with Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer to my sternum and lungs. I have been on 5 types of chemotherapy since Nov 2009 which only seem to keep things at bay for 3months max. Prior to the chemotherapy I underwent surgery to have my ovaries and fallopian tubes removed to keep my estrogen levels low, considering this is the driving force for my type of cancer. 

I came across Suzanne Somers' book "Knockout" which has given me new hope.   I read of and researched one of the Physicians named by Suzanne Somers... Dr James Forsythe in Reno NV.  He practices Western medicine with  Alternative medicine  equalling Integrated medicine which has had very high success rates for Stage 4 cancers.  Many patients seek out Dr Forsythe after they were given little hope, told that they only had a few months to live  and that they should consider hospice. Hearing the testimonials of several cancer survivors with case scenarios worse than mine,  I feel deep down inside that this is the next path that I should take.  The initial treatment will consist of daily IV infusions in Reno for 3 weeks.  Hopefully with the help of everyone,  i will be able to receive this treatment to fight this cancer and keep it at bay for many years....if not cure it !!!!  :)
