Thank you!!!

Commented on b-raf and melanoma 6 years ago

Mike, thank you so much for being so caring and positive and sharing all you know. I am a 56 yr old very healthy female who got melanoma last yr...2012 and have had 4 surgeries and radiation since. I am stage IIIC I think and carry the Braf gene. I've not had any problems and take almost all the vitamins and supps you mention except for melatonin. I have almost completed 12 weeks on Essiac vegecaps also. I have another CT scan in a week and a half which will be the first since taking the Essiac and doing radiation. I'm believing to be cancer free. I eat cancer fighting foods everyday and like you have done most of the research myself and learned things by asking questions. My melanoma started as a mole on my back which spread to 2 lymp nodes under my left arm so 19 were removed. At my 3 mth scan more was spotted up under my collar bone so that was also removed then the radiation. I can relate to all the feelings you mention your wife having and would cry quite often but never stay in the negative for long. I have very strong faith in God and a great supporting family and probably hundreds of friends praying for me per facebook, etc. so most of the time I've been able to keep my peace but it has been a very scary experience. I'm so very thankful for people like you who are willing to encourage and share. When I first started researching I would feel sick, scared and helpless at the negative things I read then I would just have to not even read anything about it so I could keep my peace. I too will have a testimony of this thing being beat when it's all said and done and want to also be an encourager as you are. Again...thanks so much and may God bless you and your wife immensely for taking the time to care and share. Diana Powell
