It’s about time to update again. As most of you know, I found out my cancer had metastasized to my bones. As soon as we found this out, we reached out to Hope 4Cancer and my doctor here in Arizona. My doctor was very positive and recommended we remove my bone cancer through cryoablation and Osteo-cool. He gave us a referral for a Doctor Agha in Scottsdale and we went for a consultation. Little did we know what he could provide for us. The doctor was very caring and listened to our needs but also had a fun sense of humor and would joke with us. He recommended we freeze my breast tumor along with lymph nodes in addition to the bone cancer spots.

He said we needed to kill the Queen bee that is sending out cancer to the rest of my body. He then told us we would be doing multiples surgeries thought out the next 3 weeks.

We immediately jumped with the first one called Embolization which they insert a small bead in the vein of my arm to cut blood flow to my breast tumor along with my lymph nodes next to my armpit. I also was given some medicine directly to the tumor that triggers the body to attack the tumor called TVEC and Keytruda. I got to wear a sling for a couple days because I wasn’t allowed to use it. I also was prohibited from carrying little J. This procedure actually was done again later to the lymph nodes in my chest and near my esophagus. They entered this time from my groin. This one made me very nauseous. I threw up 7 times and was not able to eat much for a couple days. I am sure for chemo patients it’s much worse so I call that a blessing. Following embolization we did cryoablation to the breast which made me very swollen in that area . I don’t need to reveal more. It made everything numb from the chest down to my arm.

After that I had Osteo-cool a cooled radio frequency technique that freezes the cancer in my bones and fills the space where cancer was. This was done in multiple spots in my bones including lumbar spine, pelvis, and near my socket in my right side. I was very sore for a couple weeks having difficulty moving or twisting my back. Many times I had to have help getting up. I started doing stretching and doing the infrared light on my bones and now I only have a slight limp. With all these procedures I had a total of 8 surgeries in August and September. I really enjoyed seeing the staff at IYA medical. It’s like they have become family to me since I have been there so much.

In the meantime, I have started my detox program and for the most part it’s been smooth. I have only experienced some fatigue and slight stomach cramps. The education on health through the program is phenomenal. I feel as if I found a goldmine on health information that could help so many people even those not dealing with cancer.

As of last week, I had another PET scan and there is still more cancer but a lot has gone away. I just had another surgery with a few more in the next two weeks.I am working with a doctor here in Arizona and again it’s a miracle for he and his staff have been so good to help me. I have started Iv therapy again hoping my cells will accept them since I have opened up the cell membrane with my detox program.

I am down to 100 pounds but am keeping steady now. Don’t want to lose more weight. I plan on being a witch for Halloween as I can take out my two front teeth haha. I will have to post more pictures.

It has been over a year that I found out I had cancer. It’s hard to imagine it has been a year but I didn’t think I would be where I am today. There has been a lot that has happened since coming to Cancun in June. Not the path I would have chosen but the path God believes I need to take to get healed and grow.

As I mentioned before, my tumor had grown since June and it was in other lymph nodes. I knew something wasn’t right but I was directed to take some additional tests to see three things.

1. Why my body wasn’t absorbing nutrients

2. Why my body wasn’t detoxing

3. If my cancer had metastasized anywhere else since it had grown, tumor markers doubled and was in other lymph nodes.

From middle of June until the end of July my patience was tested because it wasn’t until then that I would get all my test results back.

1st test-showed no parasites so no bugs in my body taking my nutrients away.

2nd test- I got was my PET/CT scan back to see if there was any metastasis and had a strong feeling it had. When I got it back, I wasn’t surprised. It revealed my cancer had gone to 8 different places in my bones.

A. My left lateral 6th vertebrae which actually fractured from the cancer. I had been dealing with some pain under my left armpit and I thought it was my lymph nodes overcompensating for the other side. One night I woke up, with pain that wouldn’t allow me to sleep. It was stinging pain and it was relieved by a cold

compress and some ibuprofen. I had no idea my rib fractured until I read my test report and my doctor here revealed it to me. He said my body was trying to repair the rib so that is why I was feeling a stinging sensation. I also felt difficulty breathing while holding onto my daughter in the deep end pool and thought that was weird. There was some good news cancer in my breast had diminished and it was so big because it was in necrosis (means cancer cells in the center were dying)

B.T10 vertabrae

C. Lumbar spine L2, 4, and 5

D. Pelvis in right side

E. Right femoral head

My doctor recommended Cyroablation which means they go into the cancer tumor in the bones and freeze

it and that should stop it. I am going into a Radiologist this week to see when this procedure can take place.

3rd test- My GXScience test which shows what genes have mutations in the body. This test really showed why I was unable to stop the cancer from growing despite changing diet, supplements and doing therapies. It seemed some of what I was doing had an effect on some of

my breast cancer but my body has been fighting hard to be strong and it’s because of what I was told back in Cancun in June which is 1. My body is not assimilating nutrients or able to detox properly. With all the toxins in my body, my body is not able to fight off the cancer and try to rid it of toxins. The only way to get this fixed is get rid of toxins properly.

This is where Hope came back in, all this time, I was wondering if there was a thing I could do to find a solution because I wasn’t sure if my specific case could be resolved by Hope 4 Cancer. Through a miracle, my good friend Marlo saw a video that described exactly what I was going through. In it, it described that in order to heal, I needed to start at the celluluar level. “Heal the cell, to get well.” I watched the video and knew this was a path I needed to take. I took a test, had a consult and me and my husband were sold on this program. It’s is from the world renowned Doctor Pampa. We took it to Hope 4 Cancer and they said it can help my case. I start next week and I am excited of what I can learn so I can stop this cancer once and for all. I still don’t have all answers but I know it’s the next step in the process.

Once I heal from a cellular level, my cells can actually take in the nutrients they need and detox like they are supposed which means cancer will start

to diminish.

I will continue to do my therapies but not sure on which supplements I will continue to take with Hope 4 Cancer. I will know more next week.


to reduce my toxic load, I finally had my dental surgery. When they did the cavitation surgery, it revealed my bone in the tooth socket was completely liquified in all 4 places where my wisdom teeth were removed. I also have some fun fake teeth (called flippers aka dentures) in the front where my teeth had root canals. We had to remove the whole tooth in 2 places to remove all the toxins there. I have been in slight pain and swollen and bruised because I had to have bone grafts in all 4 places. It’s been an adjustment to not have real teeth in the front and unable to eat real food since the back of my mouth is tender. I currently live off of smoothies, bone broth, oatmeal, juice and soup. It’s been 5 days so hopefully by the end of the week I can chew again.

On the positive side, I can look like an official witch for Halloween with missing teeth. We will see if I don’t frighten people away with my mouth lol!

For now, I’m ready to take on this program and see how fast my cancer goes away throughout the process.

Alma 38:2

And now, my son, I trust that I shall have great joy in you, because of your steadiness and your faithfulness unto God; for as you have commenced in your youth to look to the Lord your God, even so I hope that you will continue in keeping his commandments; for blessed is he that endureth to the end.
