Mom's breast tumors showed clear signs of regression.
This process to battle breast cancer has been a 10-month journey (June 2011-Mar2012) for Mom and for the entire family. Now I understand that Cancer is not a disease that germ-warfare techniques alone can win over. We are not fighting a bacteria, a virus or a external intrusion. With Cancer, it is fighting our own cells which went haywire. Killing our own cells got to be selective, or else it also kills to good ones. The military strategist would call killing innocent cells "collateral" damages in the bigger strategy to kill an enemy. Some of these collateral damages could be permanent, like removal of lymph nodes, or surgery, or killing the immune system etc.
I am very thankful, that modern technology has allow us to come across this alternative methods of cancer treatment, called New Generation Photodynamic Therapy, NGPDT. The combination of NGPDT with nutrition, habits change and positive mindset has resulted in regression of the tumor after over 9 months.
The NGPDT process, like other methods, will take time. For many of us who need instant results, this can be emotional stressful. When the first Oncologist told us in June "You got to remove the tumor now, and start the Chemo process immediate, or else....". We chose to wait and decide to go Guangzhou NGPDT clinic to "try it out". When friends heard that we were going China for treatment, they exclaimed "Oh No! Don't trust the hospital in China!". When we revisited the Oncologist in Sept again, we were told "tumor had increased in size, you MUST do it now! there is no time". We chose to wait and stayed on course and did the second NGPDT. And in December, another Pathologist told us "Don't take medical decision in your own hands, leave it to the professional. You need to act immediately". Another Oncologist told us "I don't believe shinning laser on cancer will work, all this hocus-pocus stuff are misleading. Imagine the amount of damage the body would sustain with intense laser light exposure?" I asked her "Is exposure to radiation treatment more intense and harmful than Laser light?" And she replied "That's not the point. The main point is to treat cancer by removing the source (tumor) through chemo/surgery, and then stop the cancer spread with radiation - that is the main thing... we have statistics to show survival chance is 50% with chemo, another 15+% with surgery, and 10+% with radiation". We chose to do a third NGPDT treatment instead of surgery and chemo therapy.
After 9 months, the Petscan showed that the tumor size had no grown in size and no spreading to other organs and reduced vascularity! We went for a 4th NGPDT treatment (March 2012) just to be sure. And it was confirmed by NGPDT expert from Beijing during the treatment that the blood vessels feeding the tumor had been severed.
From our experience, whichever treatment methods you all chose to take, stay on course and stick to one approach. Unless reports and empirical data shows you otherwise, don't change methods. Most experts, or friends, or people with hearsays, will tell you many other methods had work for others. Please, please, do your own research. Talk to the patient and care giver. Ask all the direct and tough questions to the experts before making a decision. Be open to possiblities. Never close your options until you have researched on every one of them. The choices are many, yet, the right one could only be 1 for you.
I am thankful that the professional team from NGPDT (Scott Waters, Michael Cho, Dr Sasha Alexander, Dr Lim Eng Huat, Dr Lee, Dr Kong, Mrs Kong, Dr Ye and other caring nurses, radiologist and administrators) had provided so much care and expertise to helping my Mom. They were open to discussions, not threatened by all my direct intrusive questioning, and kept finding answers after answer for my need of empirical proof of cancer death. Thank you ALL! It been a long passage through stormy weather and now we sail into clearer skies and smooth wind for us. BIG THANK to you all.
And Thank You for all the web-site visitors and other cancer patients who provided morale support and comments.
I will develop this website into a full-website with it's own domain name. I will post all these comments, facts, and experience there. My Mom's hope, through this website, is to provide information for others who are seeking alternative therapy to this thing call Cancer - much misunderstood illness, disease, or health issue inside us.
Wishing the best to all of you out there. Make the conscious choice to: Eat healthy, Live happy, and turn Stress into positive energy to help others!
Alex on behalf of Mom, Madam Thoo.
