2018 was a tough year. Oh, it started out good. In February we had a gift of a trip to Paris and while there, we renewed our wedding vows. After returning home, we knew something was wrong.
In July, Tom got the diagnosis, Bladder Cancer. The world stopped turning. Scared, frantic, and trying to make good decisions we started on the journey of his treatment.
The Doctor’s were not happy with his decision and we would soon find out just what the costs are when you treat cancer naturally/holistically. No insurance covers the expenses and having gone through five Doctors, we are beginning to think we are just truly out here on our own.
It’s okay. We learn more and more everyday. Tom does everything he’s supposed to do and tests are showing no cancer! We are both believers in food as medicine. We both eat a 100% organic diet of whole foods, no sugar, plant-based, and no processed foods. It changes your social life. Going out to eat – what do you eat? It’s worth it, it’s his life. He’s not been sick or felt bad and people are puzzled when they see him because he doesn’t look sick.
We want to share with the world our experience. I’ve been keeping a journal since the beginning and I’ll begin writing posts from those journals to catch up to where we are today. It’s created a passion, a calling in me, to share this experience and let people know what we’ve been through, what we’ve accomplished, and what we’ve learned. I hope you’ll follow too and share with others that might be interested. There are options for your healthcare and you, as the patient, get to participate in the decisions. We only have one life, don’t hand it over without questions.
