THE STORY:

My upcoming Double Century (200 miles in one day!) ride, August 2, 2014 in Marin CA. will help raise funds to enable Susan McKenna, a firefighter and breast cancer patient to continue following the Gerson Therapy.

Thank you in so much for your support. I whole heartedly and passionately believe that together, we can make a difference.

Sincerely, Butch Rhyne

 

Below is Susan McKenna story:

I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. My choice of treatment is an unconventional one. After undergoing surgery I will begin an intense two year treatment called the Gerson protocol. The expense of surgery is generally covered by insurance, but alternative treatments of cancer are not.

The Gerson protocol consists of 13 organic fresh juices a day, 3 organic meals, 3-5 coffee enemas to detox the liver, and other supplemental treatments. The juicer alone costs $2400.00. The treatment costs are approximately $10,000, and the monthly estimated expense for organic produce and supplements is $1700.00.

Needless to say, I need your help. I believe that food is medicine. I believe I can heal my own body. I know I can do this program, but not alone. To heal the systemic problem in my body that allowed this cancer to grow is my goal. The cancer didn't grow overnight, and a surgery in one day won't heal it, either. I am undertaking this long treatment because I believe it is the best way for me to heal completely.

Cancer asks a lot of hard questions. There is no one way, there is no right answer. Each of us must decide for ourselves what our journey will be. I need your help in making mine one of vitality, deep healing, and gratitude. Please help me if you can, and I will be forever grateful.  Thank you for all your support, whether financial, spiritual, or physical. I need you all.
