Late fall 2017, I got the call I hoped I would never get. It was a parent saying that their 3 year old with a very low risk lymphoma was being forced into 2 ½ years of intense chemotherapy, even though she was already in remission. This mother had seen my film, Cancer Can Be Killed, and knew that there were far better ways to treat cancer than with toxins, let alone for 2 ½ years! Did I have any solutions?
I say “I hoped” I would never get the call because childhood cancer is so unfair and scary to me, the last thing I wanted to do was get involved. I just wanted St. Jude’s Hospital to solve the problem. Couldn’t I just give money to them? Wouldn’t they be doing everything possible to save children’s lives? I mean who wouldn’t have compassion on a child with cancer?
To my absolute horror, not only was nobody testing anything but chemo, but there was nobody out there questioning the system?!? No doctors, no lawyers, no politicians. And even the naturopaths that knew children were being tortured and maimed said their hands were tied.
So, it was left to us . . . parents who had had enough, a new group of doctors willing to see children in remission, attorneys who were willing to learn, and finally CPS workers who were open to something better. I hit the road for 6 months gathering as many stories as I could and watched as these parents one by one started rising up and claiming their rights as human beings and as citizens of planet earth to treat their children as they saw fit. They forged a new path I never thought was possible, but just showed how dedicated they were to something healthy as opposed to following a system clearly designed for profit.
Now I’m on their team. I want to help parents know that there are ways to heal from childhood cancer that don’t involve toxins. There are ways to fight a system that only seeks profit and not the welfare of the individual. There are ways to join forces and support each other with knowledge and natural products that help the body to heal itself. As Valerie Warwick so aptly pointed out in the film, Flipping The Script, allopathic medicine has forgotten that the body knows how to heal itself. But we haven’t forgotten it and we can help that healing.
