cancer-treatment

In case you weren’t aware, I was recently diagnosed with Lymphoma. Unfortunately, due to this illness, my family and myself have incurred some financial burdens due to cancer treatment and lack of income from missing work. I’m hoping to raise some money to lessen this burden on me and my family. Please read the page, and please PLEASE reblog it so everybody can see! Every dollar helps. 

Share this information first and read afterwards… Share it as much as you can! The Sour Sop or the fruit from the graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger than Chemo. Why are we not aware of this? Its because some big corporation want to make back their money spent on years of research by trying to make a synthetic version of it for sale.

So, since you know it now you can help a friend in need by letting him know or just drink some sour sop juice yourself as prevention from time to time. The taste is not bad after all. It’s completely natural and definitely has no side effects. If you have the space, plant one in your garden.

The other parts of the tree are also useful.

The next time you have a fruit juice, ask for a sour sop.

How many people died in vain while this billion-dollar drug maker concealed the secret of the miraculous Graviola tree?

This tree is low and is called graviola ! in Brazil, guanabana in Spanish and has the uninspiring name “soursop” in English. The fruit is very large and the subacid sweet white pulp is eaten out of hand or, more commonly, used to make fruit drinks, sherbets and such.

The principal interest in this plant is because of its strong anti-cancer effects. Although it is effective for a number of medical conditions, it is its anti tumor effect that is of most interest. This plant is a proven cancer remedy for cancers of all types.

Besides being a cancer remedy, graviola is a broad spectrum antimicrobial agent for both bacterial and fungal infections, is effective against internal parasites and worms, lowers high blood pressure and is used for depression, stress and nervous disorders.

If there ever was a single example that makes it dramatically clear why the existence of Health Sciences Institute is so vital to Americans like you, it’s the incredible story behind the Graviola tree..

The truth is stunningly simple: Deep within the Amazon Rainforest grows a tree that could literally revolutionize what you, your doctor, and the rest of the world thinks about cancer treatment and chances of survival. The future has never looked more promising.

Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be possible to: Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss Protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections.

Feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment Boost your energy and improve your outlook on life The source of this information is just as stunning: It comes from one of America ‘s largest drug manufacturers, th! e fruit of over 20 laboratory tests conducted since the 1970′s! What those tests revealed was nothing short of mind numbing…

Extracts from the tree were shown to: Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer.. The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug! What’s more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectivelyhunts down and kills only cancer cells..

It does not harm healthy cells! The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Graviola tree have been extensively researched–so why haven’t you heard anything about it?

If Graviola extract is One of America ‘s biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a cancer cure and their research centered on Graviola, a legendary healing tree from the Amazon Rainforest.

Various parts of the Graviola tree–including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds–have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis.

Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree’s anti-cancerous properties–and were shocked by the results. Graviola proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo. But that’s where the Graviola story nearly ended.

The company had one huge problem with the Graviola tree–it’s completely natural, and so, under federal law, not patentable. There’s no way to make serious profits from it. It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to synthesize two of the Graviola tree’s most powerful anti-cancer ingredients.

If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Graviola so potent, they’d be able to patent it and make their money back. Alas, they hit a brick wall.

The original simply could not be replicated. There was no way the company could protect its profits–or even make back the millions it poured into research. As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research! Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the Graviola research team whose conscience wouldn’t let him see such atrocity committed.

Risking his career, he contacted a company that’s dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle. Miracle unleashed When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola,! they be gan tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree.

Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola–and its shocking cover-up–came in fast and furious…. The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola’s “leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells.”

Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public… Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials–the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment’s value–were ever initiated….

A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at “10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin…”

The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched.

Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients.

A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers Seven years of silence broken.

Superformula to Fight Cancer

The first step in the fight against cancer is believing in the cure. But the chemotherapy treatment is difficult, especially for a child. To help them believe, we worked with the A.C.Camargo Cancer Center and another client of the agency, Warner Bros., to create an idea capable of changing their negative perception of the treatment:

Transform the chemotherapy into a “Superformula.”

We made covers for intravenous bags based on characters from the ‘Justice League.’ Creating, for the first time, a child-friendly version of the treatment. Co-developed with doctors, the covers are easy to sterilize and handle and meet all hospital hygiene standards. To give these covers a more powerful meaning, we started to produce a special series of cartoons and comic books in which the superheroes go through experiences similar to those of kids with cancer, and recover their strength, thanks to this “Superformula.”

An experience that went far beyond the covers by also providing a new look to the entire Children'sWard: the game room was turned into the Hall of Justice, corridors and doors were decorated in the same theme, and the exterior acquired an exclusive entrance for these little heroes.

An idea which, since it has been up and running, is helping the children in their own struggle against one of the real world’s greatest villains.

“Overcoming is about overcoming the pain, overcoming the problems, overcoming the challenges and continuing to fight well. 
They are the real superheroes.

Grow your enemy

If you had cancer, would you want to make clones of your tumour?

The first doctor I saw told me I had six months to live,” says Antonia Crawford. She was diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer in August 2013, at the age of 43. She went on to have the standard treatments but, aware that they might not be the most effective against her particular cancer, Crawford also did something quite extraordinary: she had bits of her tumour implanted into a group of mice. Once the tumours had grown in them, the mice were given a range of different treatments, in an effort to find the drug combination that would work best for her. “As a patient, I just didn’t have the time, nor could my body have gone through trying all these different drugs on myself,” Crawford says.

It’s too early to say whether this particular method improves individuals’ chances of survival. But there is a lot of interest in the idea. Many groups are working on the somewhat grotesque challenge of growing three-dimensional copies of people’s tumours outside the body – essentially, cloning cancers. Simply put, the idea is that if you want to know your enemy, you need to grow your enemy.

While cancer cells have long been grown outside the body, it isn’t as easy as you might think. Some, such as the famous HeLa strain of cells long used in research, thrive outside the body, but most cancer cells die if they are stuck in a dish. And even when they do survive, there is a big difference between a bunch of cancer cells growing in some fluid in a dish and a tumour growing in someone’s body. Solid tumours are a bit like organs: they have a mix of cell types growing in a three-dimensional structure and fed by a dedicated blood supply. “How cells behave in 2D in a plastic tissue culture flask is just not that relevant to what happens in the body,” says Frances Balkwill of Barts Cancer Institute in London. Balkwill’s team and others around the world are trying to grow realistic tumours outside the body using tissue engineering, but this approach is still at an early stage. The tried and tested way of growing tumours in 3D is to implant bits in mice with an immune system altered so as not to attack human cells. Such xenografts have been used for drug testing since the 1980s.

Now Champions Oncology – the company that Crawford turned to – is selling this service directly to individuals with cancer. “Cancer is a unique disease, and it is very difficult to work out why some drugs will work for one patient but won’t work for another; we need a more rational way to figure out what patients should and shouldn’t try,” says Ronnie Morris, the company’s president.

This everyone agrees on. Cancers are already classified into hundreds of different types depending on which tissue they originate in and what they look like under a microscope. But really there are many millions of kinds. Cancers typically have hundreds of mutations, along with even more epigenetic changes. Every tumour is unique – and constantly changing and evolving.

Getting personal

So the more closely treatment can be tailored to a person’s particular cancer, the more effective it is likely to be. And personalised treatments are starting to become a reality. People whose tumours produce too much of a protein called Her2, for instance, are given specific drugs that work against this form of cancer. Genetic tests are also increasingly used to identify mutations known to affect how cancers behave. But while the field is advancing extremely rapidly, we are still far from the point where we can predict the best possible drug combination from genetic tests alone.

Indeed, there are reasons to doubt we ever will reach this point. The cells tested might not be representative of the whole tumour, for instance. What’s more, the non-malignant cells in a tumour can have a big effect on the way it evolves and responds to treatment.

This, Morris says, is where Champions can help. “Building a very close replica of their tumour that’s alive and continues to grow in
a host environment gives patients the ability to simultaneously test four or five drugs or combinations, so that they can see which is the most effective.”

In late 2013, Crawford underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy that shrank her tumour enough for surgeons to try and remove it from her pancreas. Her brother paid for a piece of the tumour to be cut up and implanted on the backs of several mice. After the tumours had grown somewhat, they were used to “infect” even more mice. Around five months on, Champions had created a small army of what cancer researchers call mouse “avatars”. These were given combinations of drugs that genetic testing suggested might work to see which, if any, could shrink
the tumours.

Champions says that the animals’ suffering is minimal because the tumours grow just under the skin and don’t invade organs. This was an important consideration for Crawford. “I know that animal testing is a sensitive subject, but when you find yourself in a position where you’re reliant on it, you realise that it’s quite vital,” she says. “The only other option for me was to go through it all myself; I would be suffering pain, and my time might run out.”

The process isn’t cheap. Just creating the mouse avatars costs around £1500, and it doesn’t always work on the first attempt; the success rate is around 70 per cent, Morris says. Then it’s a further £2500 for each drug tested. Given that most patients opt to test four or five drugs, that’s £11,500 to £14,000. Is it worth it?

Preliminary studies by Champions suggest that the mice’s response to the cancer drugs does reflect what happens in the patient fairly well. In one study, 65 mouse avatars were given the same second- or third-line drugs as the people whose tumours they had received. According to a poster presentation given at a European Society of Medical Oncology meeting last year, there was an 87 per cent correlation between positive responses in mice and humans. “To put that in context, when a patient takes a second- or third-line drug, the chance of success is usually 10 to 15 per cent,” says Morris.

Mouse avatars

The numbers may sound impressive, but this was a small study and the mouse avatars were not actually used to choose treatments. Other researchers would like to see more extensive testing of the approach before more people are persuaded to part with their cash.

“Using avatar mice to try to predict patients’ responses to treatment is an intriguing new approach to personalising medicine, but it’s still at an experimental stage,” says Emma Smith of Cancer Research UK. “It may be of benefit to some cancer patients in the future, but we’ll need more research to determine if and for whom it might be helpful. In the meantime, it’s vital that patients speak to their oncologist before deciding to pursue any experimental testing method.”

Hey guys

So as many of you know, my mother has tonsil cancer. She has lost 8 pounds in one week and they are needing to put in a feeding tube. We are low on money, and we’re going to have to pay a lot of out of pocket and it just doesn’t seem possible. I started a gofundme account and I’m hoping you Guys will share it and let it get out there. My mom should not have to be stressing about money, she should be able to get well peace free but we all know that’s not possible. So please, share this if you you can. My gofundme page is:

Also keep in mind.. The US Govt also holds a Patent on Cannabis and it’s medicinal properties. US Patent 6630507 states unequivocally that cannabinoids are useful in the prevention and treatment of a wide variety of diseases including auto-immune disorders, stroke, trauma, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and HIV dementia. The patent, awarded in 2003, is based on research done by the National Institute of Health, and is assigned to the US Dept. of Health and Human Services. In the age of information, they can no longer keep their lies about Cannabis afloat.

The Mind Unleashed

How do the zodiac signs react to the cold shoulder

Here is a posts on the signs ignoring others. No one likes to be ignored but with that said…..

Aries will not stand to be ignored. This is a sign that will try to keep communication open and will at least want to know the reason why you are mad or giving them the cold shoulder. When they do decide to move on expect them to be angry towards you and won’t be okay unless you eventually explain why you were cold to them.

Taurus is a sign that can act in two extreme ways if given the cold shoulder. It all depends on if their determination wins or pride. A determined Taurus can become obsessive and won’t leave the individual alone, a prideful Taurus will give the cold shoulder right back and can develop an unforgiving side.

Gemini hates the cold shoulder and finds the lack of communication more frustrating than sad. They will try many things to get you to talk/pay attention to them. From doing more outrageous techniques like talking behind your back or doing something that forces you to talk to them to confronting you head on, a Gemini will find a way to communicate.

Cancer will get very upset at a cold shoulder and will probably ignore a person right back. Trust me, their shoulder can be very, very cold. A Cancer can also hold a grudge so if you ignore them expect them to detach from you and ignore you even longer.

Leo doesn’t come across people that give them the cold shoulder too often but when they do their pride won’t allow them to be patient or understanding. Leo will probably get angry and refuse to talk to the person or try to fix things.

Virgo is the type to keep texting or asking questions to figure out what went wrong when someone is giving them the cold shoulder. They over think the situation and can get very annoyed but also worried.

Libra is good at tip-toeing around someone giving them the cold shoulder and knows how to get someone talking to them. They might “poke the bear” a bit to get a reaction but knows ways to civilly get someone to become warmer.

Scorpio is good at giving the cold shoulder themselves and might know how to get past someone’s walls and coldness. They might use manipulation to get someone to talk to them again.

Sagittarius refuses to cooperate with a cold shoulder and will act like the person isn’t ignoring them or being aloof.

Capricorn can respect a person’s space and independence but when they are given the cold shoulder they see it as disrespectful. They can become hurt and might get very mad at an individual who is being cold.

Aquarius might try to make light of a situation when someone is ignoring them or giving them the silent treatment. If they can get that person to laugh or listen to their story that might feel like a win to them. If lightning the mood doesn’t work they just wait the issue out or might move on from that person.

Pisces knows how to trick someone into talking to them again! The silent treatment or cold shoulder never works with this fish. But at the same time, they are great at being cold if needed.

This is my Nanny. She’s the most incredible, generous, spiritual woman I know, and the means the world to me. I know without a doubt that she would give her last breath for me. Which makes what I’m about to say all the more difficult.

My nanny has been diagnosed with leukemia, one month before her 80th birthday. The injustice in this physically chokes me.

I wish I could fight this battle for her, but I can’t.

All I can do, is beg and plead for your prayers.

Please please please pray for her. She is of strong faith, and I know she will appreciate this. Regardless of your faith (or faithlessness), I beg you to please offer a prayer in her name. Please.

It pains and angers me that there is nothing I can do for her physically. All I can do is pray until my throat is hoarse and hope that some blessings come her way.

Please pray.

Osteogenic sarcoma of the third metacarpal displaying blastic features.

Osteogenic sarcoma is a bone cancer that primarily affects osteoblasts and occurs most often in teenagers during their growth spurt; the most common sites are the metaphyses of the thigh bone (femur), shin bone (tibia), and arm bone (humerus). Metastases occur most often in lungs; treatment consists of multidrug chemotherapy and removal of the malignant growth, or amputation of limbs.
