    hi liIsa I was diagnosed with mm in 2003 had a stem cell transplant in july 2004 when you said that being on the dextormetasoin as being in a tight wet suit I equated the four days on as being on my botox day all my wrinkles faded away . nice smooth skin ( i was 58 when first dx. ) I celebrated my 5 years with a cake decorated with m yloma cells ( i am a retired med lab tech) as for talking about the cancer card i do it all the time. i think it as a form of educating the people around me . I also go to a support group for living with chonic illness hospice peterbrough.

    Hello Lisa,
    Faith is what we should all carry with us. Besides this there is a fantastic prevention from further aggravation of the illness which works on cell level with no side effects, at the same time improves the immunity system. Current medication should carry on parallely.
    Welcome to ask and know more about it if there is an open mind.
    Wish you all the best.
    Regards
    Viraf

  • Hello Dear Lisa,

    I learnt from newspaper report that you have been diagnosed with melanoma. I request you to visit our website http://www.cancerfundamentaltruth.com based upon the works of two very senior doctors of Mumbai KEM hosptial Dr.Manu Kothari and Dr.Lopa Mehta. Their epoch making work “Nature of Cancer” in 1970’s received worldwide acknowldgement and their book for the common man “Other face of Cancer” has been translated to Dutch and German other than Indian languages. Ivan Ilich the mexican bio journalist commented on their book that “this is the first book which makes the lay use expert advise rather than be used by the experts”.

    A suggestion – please recognize the fact that your cancer is a part of you and has not caused by any external agents. We should not forget It has been suggested that life, as we understand it today, emerged from the purposeless, incessantly proliferating cancerous mass called pre-life (Dawe, C.J.: Phylogeny and oncogeny. )

    Thanks & regards

    Dear Lisa Ray

    Your strongness will give you a boost to fight against cancer , I am also suffering from incurable cancer ” NHL ” . My long study & experience in last three years says that you must have knowledge & beleiving yourself for the future course of action to fight against cancer . Regular allopathy course never gives any direction to cancer patient .

    Pl remember sholay dialogue ” jo dar gaya yoh mar gaya “.

    Hope for the best miraculous recovery for you .

Feel so alone n helpless… He was jz fifteen (2 yrs back)when we realised bout dis cancer,since den he was been treated at tata memorial,mumbai…7months back d doctors said he was ok n can go home but has to follow up for regular checkups. But d disease relapsed n we cudnt do anything to save him as he was himself loosing hope.

    May god give u courage to fight.
    Takecare. God bless.

  • Dear All,

    For some reason people keep writing messages to Lisa in this thread although there is very little chance she will see them. You should visit her blog instead:
