About

Welcome!   I started this blog in April 2007 (see the original “about” page and comments here) after a breast cancer diagnosis as a way to keep family and friends updated about what was going on, and a place to talk about some of the process and life changes that have taken place along the way.

I have had some of the conventional treatments, biopsy,  lumpectomy, and lymph node dissection (5 positive nodes).   After that, I have been making my own path, choosing a low dose alternative chemotherapy, and refusing radiation..I continue to work hard to discover alternative treatments, change my thinking, diet, and my life.   As I write this now, in 2010, I am in the process of classifying some of the posts from the past in an attempt to make this blog more useful to others who might want to choose a different path.  Check out the ever growing tag cloud!  I’ve added a healing page, where I plan to tell you everything that I have ever done for healing.  I’ll also be adding more links to companies and products that I find worthwhile for a healthy lifestyle. You may find it useful to check it out!

I still look for things to make me laugh and feel good. Send me funny stories and suggestions for good movies. I’ve been watching funny movies a lot, and also like good chick flicks. Don’t be shy! Post away! Look on the right side of this page for the links to funny stories and movies. If you do, then everyone gets to have fun.

If you know other people who also have cancer, or just want to be well, pass my address on to them!   I’d love to meet them.  Making big changes in diet and lifestyle is not for everyone, though sometimes a person would make changes if he knew what changes to make, and that others were also doing it and could offer support.

    Well, hello, Liz, here I am! I’m surprised to read that you have a lymph node problem as well. I might ask you for some advice in the not all too distant future. From the beginning I have stressed to my oncologist and to others in the clinic that it will be I who will decide on the degree of treatment. I want to remain myself rather than become a professional patient.
    I notice quite a few tags here relating to cancer, so I’ll have a peek over the days to come.
    In the meantime, all the best to you and stay in touch.

      Hi 🙂 Glad you could visit! I’d say that you’ve got yourself a new friend… me 🙂 I was very sad to lose so many lymph nodes (12 in all). I’m told that my body will figure out a way to continue to circulate lymph fluid, and may even form other nodes.
      Good for you for thinking for yourself about your treatment…. the cancer system can be a bully… after all, who wants to die? The bad news is that it is fear based and uses words like battle. I don’t think this is helpful. The good news is that you can choose other words. It is important to know that there are life-giving ways to support yourself and heal.
      I hope you enjoy your look around my blog… Though I cannot give “medical advice”, I am very happy to tell you what I’ve done and encourage you to investigate those options for yourself.
      much peace,
      Liz

    hi Liz,
    praise God! it seems I found a new source of inspiration. i tried to read your archives from 2007, but am always interrupted either by my mother or my daughter. you have been on fasting several times too.. amazing! have you done any conventional treatment after your surgery? sorry, not enought time to read..

      I’m inspired by you as well and I’m glad to have found you!
      Surgery is the only conventional thing I’ve done… I’ve also done IPT, which is a low dose chemotherapy method, considered alternative I think. I refused radiation and hormone therapy… It is tiring trying to stand up to the cancer machine, and think for myself… there is so much to manage and sometimes I get tired…
      I’m off to bed now….
      Blessings,
      Liz

    Liz, I know its very hard to stand up to the cancer machinery. I always have to take the arrows for my mother. We only visit the cancer centers/oncologists for diagnostic tests and always have to respond to their snarky comments about my mother’s treatment decisions..am also researching about low dose chemo and fever therapy

    I’m girding my loins now to approach the cancer machine for testing. I also hate the snarkey comments, and also the fear projected at me as I dare to not take conventional drug therapy. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Right now it is difficult even to write. I’m glad to have found you and your great blog 🙂 I feel less alone.
    I’m very interested in fever therapy, and also the healing effects of far infrared…
