The truth about cancer is that the truth about cancer doesn’t matter to us right now. This might not make sense to any of you but let me try to explain.
I have had many friends tell me to watch the series “The Truth About Cancer” before deciding on Chemotherapy. A friend even sent me a code last night to watch it free. Thank you. The premise of the series is that natural cures and remedies have been repressed because they can’t be patented like man-made drugs and therefore can not make big money. It further claims that this has led to a corrupt system that trains doctors to ignore nutrition and homeopathic medicine to focus only on pharmaceutical solutions.
I don’t disagree with this premise. I have had personal experience with life-long inflammation of the lining of my chest wall that causes regular, sharp pain. My sister gave me an oil blend that instantly removes the pain every time. The Ibuprofen recommended by my doctor is useless because the attacks come on suddenly and are gone before ibuprofen could have time to work.
I have come to my own conclusion through many personal experiences that doctors are generally trained to push drugs and manage pain rather than manage the source of the problems and discover the best solutions to fix them.
I had two other friends send me a link to another video claiming that oncologists specifically get a large kickback when they prescribe Chemotherapy so they continue to do it for the money knowing it has a 97% failure rate.
I have a different friend who is a non-medical doctor. She sends me regular reminder emails that “CHEMO KILLS.” She tells me over and over that if we go with Chemotherapy I will be a widow before the year is over.
My friends mean well in their urgent attempts to lead us from falling into these snares. I love you all and am thankful that you care that much about us.
While it is sad that serious corruption exists in almost every man-made system in our days, none of those things matter to us right now.
We have learned through goodly parents that corruption of the soul is a more pressing issue. In fact, it is the cause of all other corruptions. We feel Amos has been given this trial for a purpose that does not involve a crusade against the corruption of the the healthcare system. We don’t know exactly what Heavenly Father’s purposes are because His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts, but we have seen miracles happen to hearts and souls through this journey and we know there will be more come. That is what matters to us right now.
After prayerful consideration, we feel that Amos is meant to experience Chemotherapy. We also feel it is wise to continue with some natural medicines and nutritional remedies as well.
We arrived for the Chemotherapy at 10:30 am. After waiting and prep time, they actually started closer to 2pm. He is doing alright. He really wants to get back in time to do a few Bishop’s interviews tonigh before the side effects kick in. They said we should be done in time.
It’s been fun having Porter here to entertain us today.
We are sad we will miss Sean Astin at Jesterz tonight but were entertained by our favorite local comedians on their new series pilot during Chemo today! #jesterz
Thank you to Holly for helping with my girls today!
