My upcoming Double Century ride, June 21, 2014 in Sebastopol, CA. will help raise funds to enable Rick Wege, Stage IV Cancer Patient, to go through the Gerson Therapy treatment.
Thank you in advance for your support. I whole heartedly and passionately believe that together, we can make a difference.
Sincerely, Butch Rhyne
Below is Rick’s story:
“Rick was diagnosed with choroidal melanoma (malignant skin cancer behind his eye) about 8 years ago. That was treated with radiation and it seemed all was well. He had abdominal pain after playing a soccer game recently that didn’t go away, so he and Nina went to the hospital.
They did an ultrasound and CT scan and found that he has multiple tumors in his liver.
He saw specialists at the Melanoma Institute Australia, the available treatment for stage IV are limited, as are the results. He has therefore decided to pursue an alternative option called Gerson Therapy, http://gerson.org/gerpress. It is based on a book and teaching by Dr. Max Gerson and was the topic of a documentary entitled “The Beautiful Truth”. They have applied to the clinic and have been accepted.”
