Some of the Cancer Research UK range

“Run for the pink ribbon of life.” “Run for the cure.”  Run to the corner bar for a beer would be a better investment.”

A pretty rotten statement?     Yes, but true.  Cancer research began well over sixty years ago and with the exception of chemo therapy and radiation treatments  medicine doesn’t know any more today then when they started.  Scientists do not even know what cancer is or what causes it yet and that’s why they can’t treat it effectively.  In the past sixty plus years, how much money do you suppose has been donated to cancer research?  Millions, Billions, Trillions!!! Where did it all go??  Well, cancer research didn’t get much of it.  You can bet your bippi on that.  Yes, I know that thousands of people have either gone into remission or been cured and I am very happy for them, but how many have died because professional fund-raisers have pocketed most of the money they raised and crooked scientist have embezzled research funds.  How much of that money went to CEO’s, COO‘s, Administration, etc., etc., etc.

And just what is chemo therapy?  It’s nothing but a combination of poisons induced into the human body by an I.V. system to kill the cancer cells.  The problem is it also kills many good cells.  Especially some connected to a persons immune system.  One of my sister-in-laws had radiation treatments for uterine cancer.  They left it on to long and she was burned terribly.  They ended up having to do complete reconstruction surgery of her uterus and other female parts.

BELOW IS MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH CANCER.    Please read on and perhaps you will see why I am so bitter about cancer research, treatments and the money they have collected and wasted/stolen in a pretence of finding a “cure”

You can call this a biography or a fairy tale, but it is the story of cancer and my wife’s death.  A little background on her life.  She was the sixth of nine children.  Three boys and six girls.  All brought up on a farm in northern Indiana.  Only the youngest two girls and youngest boy are still alive.  The remaining six all died of the same pulmonary disease.  I contend that they were all affected by some chemical used on the farm while they were growing up, but no one seemed interested in the “why” of their deaths.  “They are dead…get them out and into the ground….we need the bed.”  Great attitude.

Early in 2008 my wife was diagnosed as being anemic.  That ment that some how/somewhere she was losing blood.  Her doctor scheduled a colonoscopy. When it was over that doctor said “she has cancer”.  Surgery was scheduled and a large section of her colon was cancerous.  The cancer was removed and the colon reconnected.  The surgeon checked her other organs and said none were infected with cancer.  He said he removed 21 lymph nodes in the area and only one showed any signs that it might be infected.  Otherwise she was free of cancer.  So why did she need chemo???

A week or so after she was released from the hospital, we went for an appointment with the cancer treatment doctor.  She was well-known and respected in her field and had been treated for breast cancer herself.  This doctor wanted my wife to start chemo therapy right away.  I was against that because my wife’s surgery was not yet fully healed.  Her scar extended from her naval to her pelvis and I wanted the doctor to wait until my wife was better healed which would have been a couple more weeks.  I was out voted.  She was to have six treatments over a twelve week period.

The chemo treatments took three hours to administer plus pre-interviews and seeing doctor after.  My opinion of these treatments is that they are nothing but rat poison administered via an I.V.  Sure, it kills the cancer cells, but it also kills a persons immune system making the person subject to many diseases.  Soon after her third treatment, my wife came down with pneumonia because her immune system was so low.  She spent a week in the hospital fighting the pneumonia.  I objected again to starting chemo treatments the very next week.  Out voted again.

Another three to four weeks and the pneumonia was back.  Another week in the hospital curing this.  Ditto the results.  Finally the treatments are over, but she has breathing problems.  After a while she comes down with pneumonia again. back in the hospital again for a week.  She comes home but is prescribed home oxygen.  Each day she is complaining that she cannot get her breath.  I keep turning up the oxygen supply, but she keeps saying she can’t breathe.  On Sat. morning I called my daughter to come help me get her to the hospital.  We decide we can’t do it by ourselves.  We call the ambulance and get her there.  She is put on life support.  I spend all day every day sitting in her room.  At first she improves a little, but then she continues to get worse.  Finally, on Friday, Dec. 5, 2008, the lung Dr. says she is receiving 100% oxygen and cannot breathe on her own.  She died that day about 4:00 pm.  The death certificate says she died of a pulmonary disease not cancer.  We were married 57 years.  She died five months to the day before our 58th anniversary.

I will always believe she died because of the chemo treatments and that her cancer doctor is guilty of a wrongful death.  After she died, I called her Dr. several times, but she did nit return my calls.  On my final call, I told the technician to tell the Dr. “The operation was a success, but the patient died”.  She finally wrote me a letter and one of her comments was “You knew she was going to die anyway.”  Wasn’t that sweet of her.  I just love sympathetic people………YES, I am very bitter about this whole situation.  All cancer research is a farce.  No one in the medical field wants to find a cure for cancer.  It would put to many people out of work and eliminate to many procedures – chemo, radiation, cat scans, M.R.I.’s, X-rays, etc.

The medical field – doctors, INSURANCE COMPANYS, AMA, medical research, pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies, etc. – are the most corrupt businesses in our country today….  “Keep the population sick and keep us working” would be a good motto for them………  And now we have some Muslim, Socialist, Idiot trying to put the country on mandatory, socialist medicine where the American people will get poor care for an exorbitant price IF THEIR INSURANCE COVERS THEIR MEDICAL PROBLEM.

    I totally agree they aren’t really trying to find a cure for cancer. You’re right, it would put too many people out of business. I am in the medical field, so not ALL medical people don’t want to find a cure. And even though I work in the medical field, I have turned to more natural remedies for treating myself and family. If you’re interested, check out my Reinventing Healthcare blog.

    I wish you hadn’t chosen to go thru this all by yourself, and you should share the Doctor’s name for everyone’s benefit.
