so i've been hanging out on your site a handful of times and love it! i love your style and attitude, all of it! i must admit, however, that is not the only reason for my email. one of my very good friends was diagnosed with stage iiia/b (i forget if it was a or b) a little over 5 years ago. she went through chemo, double mastectomy, preventative hysterectomy and radiation. then, she thought, she was DONE WITH CANCER. she had a huge party to celebrate the end of her treatments and to welcome a new world cancer-free. (about 300 people showed up...it was in a park.) then, about a year and a half later, she found it had spread to her bones...stage iv. ever since, she has been on a mission...as you can well imagine. she is the most beautiful person i will ever know. she has a huge network of people that love her. truly love her. would do anything for her. her family is extremely supportive and do what needs to be done to see that she is WELL taken care of. her husband is an absolute god. the only thing that her friends and family can't do for her is take her cancer away. i know the cure is near...i just hope it is near enough. she is the also the most amazing person i know. she's my idol. truly. and i don't have idols. except for her. she has been in clinical studies/trials, etc. she has had more radiation and drugs and chemo than anyone would ever want. she is now, obviously, on chemo for the rest of her (hopefully very long) life. she truly is waiting...trying to stay alive...until we reach the cure. and if you would see her, you would probably never know that anything is wrong. but it's in her bones and she lives in chronic pain...with a smile...everyday. and night. it is heartbreaking that she has to live like this. but, the opposite is not in her vocabulary.
sloan kettering cancer center in new york has the best website for alternative cancer fighting herbs + things. i've heard a lot about artemisinin aka wormwood, qing hao or absinthium as being cancer fighting with no known side effects. here's a link about it:
Hi ModMom, I did, as well. Thanks for stopping my my site! My best friend of 25+ years lost her battle with breast cancer in August. I continue to find ways to pay tribute to her.
