Dear Friends . . . I’m delighted to report that my health has further improved. In November I visited the healing medium John of God at his See More

THE STORY:

Hi Folks, it’s Mishra – known to my longer layers of family and friends as Steve Suloway. You may know me as a bodyworker, a facilitator of freestyle dance gatherings, nonprofit manager, spiritual seeker, world traveler, translator of Japanese, or newspaper and magazine editor . . . and my new job is: Staying Alive. My challenge is to heal from acute myeloid leukemia. I know I can do it, and I am asking for your help. In 2014 hospital chemotherapy left me weak and vulnerable, though it brought the leukemia to remission and I regained full strength. When I relapsed in 2016 the hospital doctors called for the same harsh chemotherapy (the temporary fix) plus a marrow transplant which might permanently remove leukemia (50 to 60% chance, they say) and might have heavy lifelong side effects – if a donor can be found. Instead I chose naturopathic treatment to boost my innate strength, at a cancer clinic in Arizona with a strong track record. In August I began a set of intravenous infusions, including a chelator to remove heavy metals (I have extremely high levels, it turns out). The treatment is strengthening me in some ways, and it will likely take months to neutralize the distractions that prevent my immune system from suppressing leukemia. Insurance pays 0% for this non-pharmaceutical path. The current cost is about $8,000 per week, so all the money we have in the bank, and more, seems headed into my arm. My life is very good even when I am technically ill (virtually no symptoms at this point, just lab results). Yet the fact is I have to deal with acute leukemia, which is potentially quick and aggressive. I have no doubt that I will be healed to the point of good quality of life for many years to come. Any contribution toward my expenses, no matter what amount, will be deeply appreciated by myself and my wife Rena Tairifa. Thanks so much for considering this, and spreading the word.
