Katie in Hawaii

Katie and I are spending two weeks in Hawaii learning and undergoing a nutritional program for cancer and a detoxification program for the previous chemotherapy she received. It is a difficult program. Maybe not the most enjoyable way to spend the holidays for a 13 year old girl. The weather in Hawaii is nice with 68 to 83 degree days. We have been out sight seeing for about 2 hours a day this last week. The scenery and beaches are beautiful. We even went swimming in a warm water pool warmed by a volcano right on the beach front. It was a once in a lifetime experience for both of us. A very special thanks to Tom, Crystal, Karen and Sandy for getting us over here.

Texas Monthly ran an article on Katie and the whole ordeal in the January 2006 issue. Check it out below. I am sorry there have not been more updates but evil eyes are watching everything we do. Katie is doing well and feeling good. We will have some more tests done in January after we return. Then we should know more.

We are still accepting donations to help with the legal and medical bills at http://www.saveakid.us. Thanks to Tony and Laureen at Compassion Children for providing this service.


Happy New Year to all.

    I am praying for katie and the family! My daughter was diagnosed at the age of 21 with Hodgkins lymphoma as well. They wanted to keep her in the hospital and start chemotherapy right then and there! She said no! I want to go home and let my mom help me. I am not a doctor, but I know enough about cancer and it's cures, and the cure is not in conventional medicine! Anyhow, after a month on my protocol, my daughter went from not being able to hardly walk, chronic pain, a huge swollen neck, crying, not eating, etc....to being outdoors, jumping on the trampoline and laughing! But unfortunatly, under the pressure of Dr's, she decided to go with six months of poison (chemo) as well. Her oncologist said that after two treatments, her hair would fall out, she will develope mouth sores, lose weight, due to loss of appettite, etc. Well guess what? Due to staying with her protocol of wonderful supplements and organic whole foods, and cleansing her lymph (by rebounding), none of the above happened! And, during her last treatment, her and her husband found out that she was pregnant! Her periods never ceased either! Well her oncologist insisted that she make a trip to the U of M medical center, due to the fact that he never had a case like hers! Nor had the U of M! I will not list the supplements I had her on and still have her on, due to the EVIL eyes watching! But their beautiful son was born weighing in at 9lbs 10 0z and scored the highest scores on his apgar tests! The hospital said it was incredible! He is now 14 months and so healthy and bright. I knew in my heart, all would go well if I could counteract the poison! I now spend my time helping others in my area who have been diagnosed with cancer and aew not aware that there are other options besides slash, burn and poison. Give the bodies cells what they need, and the body will heal itself! God Bless you all and take care. Thank you www.newstarget.com for putting up the article on Katie.

    The link to compassion children aren't working right. I just found newstarget.com and bought his Grocery Warning book for my mom for Christmas and ended up reading it all. That site rocks. He's right, eventually people are going to look at "modern" medicine as truely barbaric.

    I commend you for taking your daughter's health into your own hands and understanding that each illness is different. I also believe you understand the risks that invasive and potentially-harmful procedures such as chemotherapy and radiation bring with them. I hope all goes well and wish Katie and your entire family the best. Conventional medicine is quite destructive. It would be wonderful if you could get the media to cover the fact that you chose to get her treatment elsewhere. I can't believe Texas attempted to mandate a health procedure for your daughter. Laws should have no place on our bodies.

    You'll get through it Katie.

    What's all the fuss about? Doesn't the government know best? Haven't medical doctors been educated in the finest schools money can buy? Aren't they infinitely more knowledgeable about things than mere parents? And our judges are second to none in their humble opinions. It's approaching the point where CPS is just gonna hafta take over the entire child rearing process; you parents just ain't doin' it right!

    Dont let the Government or the CPS scary you! They dont have the legal leg to stand on. If you want to be free from them, there's a way as long as you got the will. Empower yourself by educating yourself. Look up information on become a state citizen instead of the corporate identity the government automatically enrolls you when you are first born. Example, birth certificate is spelled JANE DOE as posed to Jane Doe. JANE DOE is the corporate identity know/issued by the government. This is just a small part of it, but it makes a BIG difference in the eyes of the law. Basically, it's getting yourself out of the system that they can't no longer control you or your children. This is a serious comment and one that I hope and pray will set your family free.

    Allopathic medicine has been around for about 100 years. "Alternative" medicine has been around for thousands of years. If an MD is not offering natural therapies along with prescriptions, he/she is not following the hippocratic oath and the word MURDERER comes to mind. These doctors better "get with the program" because the public is getting wise to their game.

    I agree with this article and sadly many people don't realize the true colors of CPS unless it happens ot them........

    It won't be long and the US will be a police state because everyone is ignoring whats going on while our rights are being taken away little by little
    I pray for you guys continually and CPS should have to answer to what they have done!
    www.fightcps.com also look up Alex Jones site

A remarkable, compassionate man who spends his time educating cancer patients/family on natural cures. www.beating-cancer-gently.com The second site is www.curezone.com I continue to pray fro Katies recovery.

    Its so great to hear about Katie and that the universe (whether it be God or Karma or whatever) is in her corner. The state of healthcare today is sad. As a former cancer patient, I try to be objective about medical efforts. I am alive not because of herbs and cleansing. I am lucky. Thus far, I have worked in both "natural/alternative medicine", and in "modern/mainstream" medicine. Every perspective on health has some potential value. Whether it be acupuncture, chemotherapy, reiki, shockwave therapy, biofeedback/meditation, shamanism, etc., the idealogy we must set must have a holistic and open minded tone. I admire newstarget greatly. However, lets put an end to the cancer of the "this way is the best" approach. Natural medicine/alternative/herbal/nutritional happens to be extremely effective, but its not "the best". Modern medicine is not "the best" either. The point is that there is no "best". The future of healthcare in this world depends on taking health education into our own hands. Lets quit the bashing altogether. It all comes down to perspective and intention. Lets approach medical philosophy with an integrative tone and with open-mindedness. Believe me, I understand the cancer that is 'modern medicine politics'. Bottom line(s): each side must lose bias, stop the bashing, and cultivate a team approach to medical treatments. There is no absolute right way.
    Bless you Katie.
