FBI/FDA Raid on Natural Cancer Center Brings Medical Tyranny to OklahomaSubmitted by fiodax on Wed, 04/24/2013 - 18:14
We've all heard the stories of overreaching government, police abuse and federal raids on peaceful, voluntary transactions. Up until yesterday I had not personally experienced it.
Sam and Yvonne have been dear friends of our family for several years now. Four years ago Yvonne was diagnosed with stage 3 melanoma and given 6 months to live. Her doctor recommended a treatment of chemotherapy and didn't offer a good prognosis, neither in how she would feel during the course of the treatment, nor in the ultimate effectiveness of the treatment to cure the disease. Through prayer and careful consideration, Yvonne opted to decline this path of treatment and decided to pursue natural alternatives that would at least help her live out what seemed to be the last days of her life without the ill effects of chemotherapy. Homeschooling three children was already a tiring job, but complicating that with the side effects of toxic cancer treatment was not something Yvonne was willing to do. To the best of her ability she has educated herself on diet, essential oils, and other natural ways to help her body heal. The results have shocked her oncologist, and she has vibrantly outlasted her predicted 6 month death sentence. Although her progress has been steady, recently she has had some setbacks that are once again threatening her life.
Tumors began to once again develop that were noticeable under her arm. She began feeling weak and experienced several other problems. She began looking towards natural solutions such as the Gerson Therapy and other treatments with injected vitamins. After what she would describe as some divine coincidences, she chose to explore a natural cancer treatment center just a few hours away in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Camelot Cancer Care. Camelot offered an injection of a solution of DMSO, Laetrile, and Vitamin C. They advertised this clearly on their website and also explained it clearly in their treatment plan that they discussed with Yvonne. After much research and prayer Yvonne and Sam decided that this was the course of treatment they would like to take.
Having no health insurance and with Sam recently recovering from an on the job injury which required a knee replacement, money was tight. Through the charity of friends and family they were able to raise enough money to at least pay for the first round of treatment at Camelot. Camelot required a PET scan prior to treatment. The Doctor that read the PET scan remarked that Yvonne's cancer, although aggressive, seemed to be contained near the skin, and hadn't spread to the rest of her body. He said that if she would have had surgery on this kind of cancer, which was previously recommend to her by another doctor, that it would have "spread like wildfire" throughout her body. He also was shocked that her liver was almost as healthy as that of a person without cancer. He informed her that people with this stage of cancer generally have a hard time healing because of the damage that had already been done to their liver, both from the disease and from the toxic treatments. He was familiar with the protocol at Camelot and felt that this was a very good course of treatment for Yvonne to take. They were filled with hope!
The Camelot procedure is at a minimum a 20 day procedure that includes the injection of their formula every day via an IV solution. The entire process is overseen by a medical Doctor as well as a naturopath. Yvonne's PET scan Doctor, and the Doctor at Camelot felt that she would need more than one course of treatment in order to effectively batter her cancer. The first 8 days of the treatment are done at Camelot's facility in Tulsa, where the patient is monitored, blood tested, and trained on the procedure. For the remaining portion of the procedure the patient is able, if desired, to go home with their medicine and continue the protocol in the comfort of familiar surroundings.
Tuesday April 23rd 2013 was day 8 of Yvonne's treatment. She and Sam were eager to get back home to their children, continue her treatments there, and try to re-establish at least some modicum of normalcy. That morning, in the midst of her treatment at the center, agents from the FBI and FDA raided the facility. They forced all patients to stop their treatments. They told Sam that B17 was not approved for the treatment of cancer and this was the reason for the raid. My friend Sam reached down to grab the box of medicine that would be used to continue the treatments at home, only to have an agent slam his fist down on it and tell him he couldn't take it. Sam argued that it was HIS personal property that he had paid for! The agent did not relent, Sam said, "well you are going to have to read me rights then", and the agent threatened to arrest him for "obstructing justice". One agent turned to Yvonne and said "We are doing this to protect you", Yvonne replied "How are you protecting me? You are taking my medicine, I will not be able to continue my treatment." He actually responded "I am just doing my job ma'am".
The FBI and FDA agents held Sam and Yvonne for over 2 hours under constant armed guard. They tolerated this at first because they had been told there would be a chance they would be able to leave with their medicine, but after calls to "federal prosecutors" their hopes for this were dashed. The stress of this incident left Yvonne shaking for hours. Sam and Yvonne finally left without their medicine. They were not even allowed to take the cleaning solution or flushing solution that is needed to keep her PICC line from getting infected. With a serious blow to their hope by the "benevolence" of the state, they now had the added stress of recovering the money they had spent on this treatment. They are racing against the clock as Yvonne's condition worsens and the prospect of quickly retrieving the money seemed to be slim, this beside the fact that Camelot Cancer Care's protocol is the treatment that Yvonne WANTS to pay for!
The future of Yvonne's treatment is uncertain as I write this. The owners of Camelot Cancer Care have reached out to them and are working to find a solution. The FBI has said the clinic can reopen the next day if they quit using Laetrile (B17), but Sam and Yvonne specifically chose that clinic because it openly stated that they used this natural substance. The situation our government has created is one that will ultimately pit the patient against their provider of choice, while also denying the care to a person who has chosen to treat their cancer in this way.
When Sam and Yvonne found Camelot Cancer Care, we were all filled with hope. The outpouring of support from friends and family bolstered that hope all the more. So you can imagine, when armed agents of our oppressive state stormed in, how far the fall seemed to feel as our hopes were attacked. Please share and pray and do whatever you are led to help get the word out, and to lift up my friend, and all of us, from the oppression of this government.
