I joined this site around June 2015, just as my 42 year old husband's colon cancer was metastasizing to his liver. At the end of May, a baseball-sized adenocarcinoma was removed, along with 24 lymph nodes (11- cancerous) and in June, we impatiently were awaiting chemo to commence. Hoping we could stop this monster before is spread elsewhere in his body.
July 2015, after one round of FOLFOX, our fear was realized and Scott's liver was covered almost completely with cancer. The chemo was halted immediately because of negative neurotoxic effects Scott suffered from during treatment.
Scott was referred to a genetic cancer specialist, but in the meantime, we frantically searched for options that we could do right away. In my research, I read about cannabis oil and mistletoe extract.
Cannabis oil was something I knew a bit about because Scott was using it to successfully treat his epilepsy. So he started THC Oil on August 1, 2015. Within 24 days Scott's liver tumors were reduced in half. Over the next months, every scan showed fewer and smaller tumors. He now has none, and additionally he has no polyps in his colon, in spite if having a genetic predisposition to cancerous polyps, hence his early cancer battle.
The story doesn't end there, tho. In spite of the reduction and eventual total regression of the liver metastases, the cancer continued to spread elsewhere. At the end of October 2015, Scott began Xeloda. A scan at the end of December revealed the spreading had accelerated and now Scott's chest, abdomen and pelvic region were filled with cancer, effecting his legs to his neck. In January 2016, the cancer had grown to a football-size mass between his kidneys, his lower vena cava and his heart were encased in cancer. Of course, the chemo was stopped.
We were told the cancer was incurable and terminal (told again, btw, since this was the diagnosis/prognosis after the liver metastases) and we were told that the only real option was palliative radiation to shrink the largest mass. No surgery could help and Scott did not handle chemo well nor did the treatments seem effective. Although, the liver cancer continued to regress, Scott's body was weakening everyday with rapid weightloss and unbearable pain.
So, we spent February into March undergoing 18 rounds of radiation. Scott continued to weaken daily and the cancer grew. At the end of the regimen, and after the month of post-radiation waiting, we had the scan to assess its palliative success. The tumor had decreased by one centimeter. Disappointment and desperation, but now his continued suffering made sense. The radiation wasn't working.
Scott was now 43 years old. 6'1" 112 lbs and filled with cancer. A huge growth was now visible on his neck and his right leg was swelling because of the tumor cutting off of the blood flow to his lower extremities.
During this time, I'd been researching an article about Johns Hopkins studying mistletoe extract as a potential cure for colon cancer.
Early in 2016, I discovered Beleivebig.org and this site led us to Dr. Blanning in Denver. On April 1, 2016, we got out first delivery of mistletoe extract and by May 24th, my husband's cancer had almost shrunk in half. As soon as he started this treatment he came back to life. It was miraculous.
Now, just few weeks ago, Scott has gotten his first report showing his body to be cancer-free. He's got one swollen lymph node, but otherwise after almost 2 full years on mistletoe extract and 2 1/2 on THC/CBD Cannabis Oil, my husband is beating this horrible cancer.
People keep insisting that we spread the word on Scott's battle and successes, so we are posting this with the hope that this story helps others. Of course we know that this is just the story so far, but it's real. This really happened.
I hope it helps someone. Good luck and don't ever give up.
