This article breathes incredible new hope in the fight against cancer.
In the past five months I have had some well-meaning, but ultimately insensitive suggestions that traditional therapy is bad and I should consider other “alternative” therapies. There is only ONE alternative therapy that I am interested in, and that will be a discussion I have in the future should the cancer ever come back or develop in another area of my body, and this articles describes that therapy. (see link above)
The thing that people don’t always understand, is that the decision to undergo any type of treatment to fight cancer is a hard decision, and a personal one. Natural or alternative therapies are not as “fool-proof” as people would have you believe and the cancer could STILL kill me regardless of the treatment I choose. My route of treatment has been successful thus far, and while it is very emotional and difficult, in the end, I have a hope at longer life. That is ALL most cancer survivors hope for. That being said, there are other treatments on the horizon that could make chemotherapy a thing of the past and I am very excited to see how this treatment develops over the next few years.
All in all, I will say with ALL CONVICTION, that I trust my doctors, the researchers, my pharmacist, and my nurses, ALL of whom are in the business of helping me SURVIVE this illness. For anyone to suggest that medical professionals go into the field of medicine to deceive their patients is an insult to the countless people who have to watch people ultimately die from this disease. They are fighting probably harder than I am to fight this disease because they have watched too many lose this battle. It’s an insensitive accusation, and I personally find it offensive.
