Triumph over a Rare Cancer

13 Aug

Dear Belleruth Napastek (sic),

I have to tell you of the wonderful support you have offered me. The chemo meditation is terrific. I was diagnosed with appendicial cancer, Stage 4, in early March of this year.  I thank you for your amazing Chemotherapy imagery. I could have not done the last 2 chemo infusions without it, plus using the Chemo-Related Fatigue meditation as well, before the next surgery.

I started FOLFOX chemo in April for 5 sessions, over 10 weeks.  Gained 10 pounds. Go figure!

The amazing news is that the type of signet ring cancer cells that I have, only respond to chemotherapy in about 5% of the cases.  

However, when I recently underwent HIPEC (heated infusion of chemo) in the abdomen, the only thing the surgeon could find was some OLD DEAD cancer cells on my lower intestines.

So I was one of the 5% percent.   But we knew that. .....

The words and power behind the guided mediation has resonated right down to my DNA.  Not too shabby for a woman who is healing seven generations of my family, with limited personal knowledge of who my ancestors were.

Thank you again for the amazing impact on my life, my healing.

Sincerely, my prayers that God continues to keep you in your highest good.

Felicia from Warrington, PA
