Keith, friends and neighbors are uniting to raise money to help pay mounting medical costs to help Tina fight against breast cancer.

Tina Auzenne is 46 years old. She was originally diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in late 2010. She underwent major surgery to remove the tumors. But surgically removing cancer does not mean a person is out of the woods. Follow up chemotherapy is always recommended.
Because Tina also has systemic lupus which she has battled now for over 12 years, already dealing with low blood counts and clotting issues, chemo was not an option for her.
She chose to go the naturopathic route from a local doctor who claimed great results in stopping cancer with her vitamin C treatments. Tina underwent this treatment for most of 2011 at very high out of pocket costs depleting savings and personal accounts.
In September of 2011 a follow up PET scan revealed that the vitamin C treatments had not done anything to stop the stage and spread of her cancer.
In February of 2012 she was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic disease, meaning the cancer had progressed and was now spreading around her body and is now attached to bone. She was told by two prominent oncologists that chemo and radiation would not be affective on her cancer.
Through extensive research by Tina and her husband Keith they’ve located two treatment centers one in Arizona and one in California that perform Autologous Dendritic Cell, Interleukin-2 and Autologous Lymphokine Activated Killer Cell vaccines that are known to be extremely effective against Tina’s type of cancer, even on bone. They are used all over the world.
Unfortunately the vaccine portion of the total treatment program has to be done outside of the US as they are not yet approved by our FDA for use on breast cancer. Because of this, health insurance doesn’t cover any of these treatments, how sad.
Tina and Keith are sacrificing heavily by selling anything of value to help afford these treatments.
Tina has always been a health advocate to keep the lupus at bay. She pushes herself everyday to fight the good fight through nutrition and exercise. Even in sickness Tina is an over the top giving and compassionate person to her family and friends and a mountain of inspiration to us all. Sacrificing her own health at times to help others, now she is the one who needs help to save her life.

We turn to you now Angels for Tina, please help her win this battle.
