I would like to raise money so that we could move back to Arroyo Grande where the weather is perfect as, I have had Multiple Sclerosis since March 1990 when our 3 month old son Joshua passed away I learned shortly after that I was pregnant and also had a disease where there is no cure for it. Than in 1994 my husband learned that he had Thyroid Cancer and at that current time we did not know about the Alternative things you could do without Radiation and Chemo. At that time my husband did have Radiation where he was put in a room and I could not visit him. Than in 2014 we found out he had Colon Cancer Stage 3 and he was bleeding bad from his rectum. He had surgery to remove the Cancer from his Colon although he was told he needed Chemo although we searched for an alternative choice in Ask Insider Doctors. Spoke with Barney and he explained what I needed to do and how to make what he would need. We got an Oncologist that was recommended from Doctor that did the Surgery. The doctor could not believe that after being Stage 3 Colon Cancer my husband shows no sign of Cancer. It is not easy doing the stuff that is needed and it is costly although I would do it again and sacrafice everything. We do not have a nice car or home although we are happy because we are together. I have not worked since 2012 when I got injured at work and my injuries where never fixed. My husband has had to go back to work and work a stressful job which the stress and schedule make it hard for us to stay on schedule with everything that needs to be done to keep the "C" word (Cancer) away from him we watch what we eat to fight to keep it away. We did have to move in with our son when my husband got diagnosed with the Colon Cancer. We would like to move into a home of our own so that we may be able to let our son and his new wife have a family and life of their own. Thank you for reading my story.
