  • The goal in fighting cancer is finding a way to create Apoptosis

    Just some thoughts
    Updated Aug 5, 2013

    Creating Apoptosis (cancer cells decay or cancer cells suicide).

    Unfortunately the pharma companies are not inclined to give you a hand in finding the right solutions and that is for obvious reasons.

    So, one needs to poke around and thank God for the Internet it is easier today than it was 30 years ago to locate possible cures.

I then tried M.D. Anderson in Houston, and they would not take (Medicare, Health Spring). I then called UT Southwestern< Dallas, and they would not take (Medicare, Health Spring). I called Medic…

  • Cancer - The Secret Change

    Living with cancer
    Added Jan 31, 2015
    This article, so very well written by a practicing oncologist, is superb! Dr. Salwitz truly captures the feelings that I (and probably thousands of other cancer patients) have. Cancer does suck! My cancer is rare. It grows slowly, but it grows. I do not “look like I have cancer.” I hear so often,“You really look great.” The problem is I …

    You’ve probably heard this before; however, it meant little to me until I was the one being told, " You have colorectal cancer." If you are experiencing something out of the ordinary, such as pain or discomfort that will not go away, call your doctor.

    Was the day before Christmas
    and all through the house
    I’m the only one stirring
    that great big pot
    The stocking are stuffed
    and so am I
    with Christmas candy
    and a big pizza pie.
    With the second Christmas here
    and no cancer in sight
    That’s the best Christmas gift
    that God had in his sight.
    All the family is here
    except my bro and wi…
