But one of my friend who is from India, Suggest me a name of a well-known Indian Healer, and my cousin consulted him, and you won't believe that, He has Actually SOLVE the Brain Tumor , MY COUSIN RECOVERED WITHIN A MONTH and it only cost us total $8000 with ALL charges including Healing items. So, I also suggest you to consult any of Healers in your State or simply Consult the Same Healer from India. that'll be very good option. I don't remember his name & address now, because I was busy with my exams, so cound'nt be there for Tretment. but I only have his Email : [ naturebuddy001@gmail.com ]. You can ask him the details you want. He'll defintly Help you. Thanks.

  • It is every where for me! just lost my nanna a few months ago! my beloved nanna... her husband, my grandfather is in melbourne for treatment at the moment and was told he has 12 months to go,, anything over that is a gift! (which is surprising because i would have guessed a few more years, but after nanna dies he went down hill so bad!) my Pa, whcih is my dads dad! he just found out her has it as well. and 2 family friends with breast cancer. I feel for my mum as well as my grandparents in this, she has just lost her mum, and is now looking after her dad. (they both lived at her house) she has brothers and sisters but they do nothing really to help, it is all on my mum!
  • I have lost 4 close family members in 3 years
  • My grandfather. And it breaks my heart. My father and I have never really been close, we hardly speak to each other. My grandfather has always been there through it all and he was diagnosed with testicular cancer a few months ago. He's sort of a rock that holds us all together and everyone he comes in contact with pretty much radiate towards him.
  • My Mom was stricken with leukemia nearly five years ago. She fought it and is now in remission. You can only hope and pray everyday. But my Mom is a strong woman, despite her small size. I remember that "very dark day" when we found out it was cancer. It was like a living "nightmare." Seemed unreal. You wake up the next morning after learning about it, and realize that the "nightmare" is still here, and won't go away yet you want it to. It's a terrible, depressing ordeal. That's why people should always make an effort to be kind to others. You never know what sort of tough times they are going through in their personal lives. :(

  • Two people close to me WERE; younger brother and older sister! Both. . . .died. . . .within two months of each other!
  • A friend is having a colostomy bag fitted next week, does anyone know how long it takes to get back to a normal life after such surgery. He wonders how long he will have to be off of work. Does this condition normally require chemo. Thanks for any answers you may have, I realise it differs with each person and on how advanced the cancer is, but just a ball park will be helpful
  • Yes, a dear friend has breast cancer. She has had chemotherapy and mastectomy... and is now undergoing radiation.
