Doctor Says I Have Tumor- Chemo Only Answer (final update)

Hello Friends,

I am writing a final update because I know that Dean would want me to. You were all kind enough to offer suggestions and prayers in September and we meant to respond with thanks, but Dean had gotten worse and voluntarily went to the hospital a few days later. He was diagnosed with severe hypercalcemia, which is a complication of the late stages of cancer. He was treated and released when his blood calcium levels were brought back to normal. He was given hospice care at that point. In a week the levels went back up again and he was readmitted ten days later. This time the levels went down, but not to normal. His health continued to deteriorate and he passed on October 19.

By the time Dean was diagnosed in June, it was already way too late for minerals, diet, alternative medicine, or even the oil he had such faith in. His blood calcium levels were already rising in July. That was the reason he was vomiting, losing his appetite and energy. We thought the vomiting was a reaction to the oil, but he was in fact dying.

I cry daily and am so angry. The cancer didn’t suddenly appear in June when Dean was diagnosed. He’d been going to follow-up visits to his head and neck oncology surgeon, who happens to be the chief surgeon of a prestigious teaching hospital in NYC. He’d had a pinhole which discharged for more than six months before it opened up into a hole, and his doctors just said it was from the side effects of radiation and to cover it with gauze. We trusted them. And though we had no idea that this pinhole could suddenly open up, rapidly enlarge, that the arteries inside the hole could begin to deteriorate and bleed so that he’d need a blood transfusion, or that a huge mass of a tumor could develop around it; I’m sure that this world renowned surgeon who’s written countless books and articles, and has an entourage of interns following him all day, had some idea months before it happened.

The head and neck surgeon had told Dean two years before that if the cancer came back, he wouldn’t be able to help him. It can’t be proven, but I believe that since there was nothing he could do, he didn’t feel he needed to bother to tell us of the possibility or send Dean for tests to see if the cancer had spread. The surgeon may not have been able to help Dean and Dean certainly couldn’t have any more radiation, but maybe alternative medicine or the oil could have helped him if started six months earlier, before he was in the end stages of cancer. He didn’t give us a chance!

I’m sorry to to share such a horrible event. I’m still debating as to whether or not to post this.......I believe Dean would want you to know. He loved this site and valued everything that was shared and posted here. Peace to all of you. I hope the new year finds you all healthy and happy.

Sincerely, Susan

Rest In Peace

I didn't know you but it's too sad to lose a fellow liberty lover. RIP Dean, may you find freedom in your afterlife.

I am very sorry for your loss

I am very sorry for your loss Susan... And although I dont know you nor Dean and this is a long time from his passing, I feel the need to pray for both you and Dean tonight..

Dr Burzynski

In Houston. 40% CURE rate not remission , CURE, 35,000. Only legal in Texas!

You are loved

My dear sister Susan, I did not know Dean, but I am touched by the account of which you have told. I pray that you find it in your heart to forgive and to relinquish your anger so that you may find peace! Believe that you are loved, and you are not alone. I am with you in spirit.

You need not worry for those who claim jurisdiction over the earth are in contempt of its court, and if they do not recognize their contempt a judgment will surely be placed against them.

Dear cwk

thank you for your comment and your prayer. I am so sorry I haven't seen it sooner. Slowly, but surely peace will be found. Love and peace to you and your family.

my heart goes out to you

I am sorry for you loss, relieved you have a supportive outlet{us}.Thank you. I wish I had more to offer. I am sure you feel the support of the hive. I have not experienced anything as deep as your loss. I am sure I would not be as whole as I am (alive) with out the DP. Also if you are ever bored I have a ___________ of jokes!

Aaron Russo, Nikola Tesla, Ron Paul, I'm jus' sayin'

I love jokes...

Dean had a great sense of humor....soooo funny! I'll miss that. Thanks for that offer, Frisky!!
And really you're right. It wasn't my intention to seek support, and I am that last person to want to be the center of attention like that. But this experience has been so helpful for me. The responses have been so caring and supportive and I think just reminiscing and writing has also helped. Just got the idea that I should begin a journal.....can't keep this up any longer. I'm sure I've overstayed my welcome! I humbly thank you all and I know Punkskaguy would too.

You have permission to take a year and a day.

That's traditional.

People have been grieving for ages, it's the human thing to do.

Have the feelings, explore them, cherish them but don't let them own you.

"I'm sure I've overstayed my welcome!" Ha Ha Ha. This isn't the Hotel California, you're always free to leave.

Thank Susan for sharing your experiences. So many here are lucky that they have not yet suffered grief. That is reserved for those who have been lucky enough to have loved and been loved in return.

Free includes debt-free!

I hope comparing Chemo to the Cliff is not rude

I wish you good health and I wish my nation better health after the dose of Chemo it will get January 1.

Nope, not at all.

Chemo doesn't work, it just poisons the body. Neither will the Cliff. Good health to all!

Please look at Ty bollinger's lecture on You Tube

He has some very valuable info on how to fight cancer. He promotes the use of many important natural substances that you can easily find and use to fight your cancer. Here is part one of his 8 part lecture: Ty Bollinger - Cancer Lecture - Part 1 of 8,

My mom used Carnivora the venus flytrap derivative, and it shrank her tumor. @:

And seriously consider using this product to boost your immune system, BioAge algae. I use it daily along w/the Carnivora to help make sure I keep cancer at bay. Read the info and you will know why it can help your immune system to combat the cancer/tumor @ Good luck to you--You can beat it!

Thank you.

Will definitely read. I hope the info. you shared helps someone on the DP.

I came across this back in university

I don't want to send people down a rabbit hole here, but I've been following this treatment. It's proceeding against a lot of opposing industry, and it's mode of action makes a fare bit of sense.


Smoke weed, preferable with a vaporizer. I'm not joking on this. It's been proven that THC caused brain cancer cells to self rupture. See the link below:

Active Ingredient in Marijuana Kills Brain Cancer Cells

WEDNESDAY, April 1 (HealthDay News) -- New research out of Spain suggests that THC -- the active ingredient in marijuana -- appears to prompt the death of brain cancer cells.

The finding is based on work with mice designed to carry human cancer tumors, as well as from an analysis of THC's impact on tumor cells extracted from two patients coping with a highly aggressive form of brain cancer.

Explaining that the introduction of THC into the brain triggers a cellular self-digestion process known as "autophagy," study co-author Guillermo Velasco said his team has isolated the specific pathway by which this process unfolds, and noted that it appears "to kill cancer cells, while it does not affect normal cells."

Velasco is with the department of biochemistry and molecular biology in the School of Biology at Complutense University in Madrid. The findings were published in the April issue of The Journal of Clinical Investigation.

The Spanish researchers focused on two patients suffering from "recurrent glioblastoma multiforme," a fast-moving form of brain cancer. Both patients had been enrolled in a clinical trial designed to test THC's potential as a cancer therapy.

Using electron microscopes to analyze brain tissue taken both before and after a 26- to 30-day THC treatment regimen, the researchers found that THC eliminated cancer cells while it left healthy cells intact.

Thank you for taking the time to post!

Very interesting. I will read the article. Dean smoked every day,but never even tried a cigarette. He didn't have brain cancer though. It began on his tongue then spread to neck and lymph node.

I'm very sorry, Susan

My heart goes out to you and your family. I can understand your anger. And I'm glad you decided to post this. This site is read by over a hundred thousand people - loyal Ron Paul supporters... and a lot more, in all walks of life, including the lamestream media, whose ad dollars keep it from helping to spread the word about alternative therapies for all sorts of health issues. But through word of mouth and now the internet, more and more people are waking up. You never know how this testimony might inspire someone else to take matters into his own hands instead of trusting traditionally-trained physicians; as to the various alternative therapies that people posted here at the DP, I'm sure others as well as me forwarded them on to others, helping to spread the word; and let testimonies like yours and others here serve as a warning to doctors: we hold you responsible for not being full advocates where our health and well-being are concerned. (The Burzynski movie served as my epiphany - not as to alternate therapies but the truth of their suppression.) I'm so sorry for your loss, but I do believe punksaguy lives on in spirit!

His spirit lives on

and I know that he feels honored that so many of you remember him and so many posted. He'd be thanking you all from the bottom of his heart if he could, but he can't and so I will say it for him. Thank you for all your caring, concern, and guidance . Thank you for spreading the truth and liberty and for allowing the rEVOLution to live on.

Ditch Chemo,

Doctors have told patients they have cancer that is fatal or they will die in some months, and many of those cases survived because they took control of their own health with alternative ways, Cancer is a state that reflects the body and mind's overall health, I would also get into exercise, and distressing the body with meditation, and get him distracted with his past time hobbies, easier said than done, but Cancer and your state of mind go hand in hand, don't give up:)

I apologize for that

I assumed mistakenly,

Really, it's okay was good advice anyway! :)

Seriously, listen to fishyculture and post a new comment.

So you didn't read the whole post. Not the end of the world but, ouch! Please make it better.

OK, I am embarrassed for you.

Why don't you go read the whole post, then maybe come change this?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

I am so sorry to hear

We were about the same age on DP give or take a week. No doubt we engaged in debate and I learned from him. We r all the better for having know him.

I'll keep you and your family in my prayers as well.

Just reading through your comments I can see what a positive influence punkskaguy was in the lives of others. I'm sorry he is no longer with you but happy when I hear how he raised other's spirits even while he was ill.

Thank you.

You know, he never complained once or felt sorry for himself. He was so appreciative of anything anyone did for him.

My prayers are with you and your family Susan...

I am so sorry for your loss. Although I did not know Dean personally but only on this forum I feel like the Liberty movement, which is a like a big family, lost a honorable brother and a true patriot.

I hope you find solace knowing that he is resting in peace and his legacy, one man's quest for freedom and justice, will live on in our hearts. We will carry the torch of freedom forward for him.

God bless you.
