Dear Ms. Pierce,
I wanted to write you to express my appreciation for your book Outsmart Your Cancer.
I bought the book and read about Protocel as recommended by a doctor friend of mine. Another doctor also called me to recommend the same book and gave me his personal history of overcoming his prostate cancer.
I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in July of 2012 and had a Whipple surgery on August 6, 2012 at the Mayo Clinic. The official diagnosis was “Locally advanced pancreatic head adenocarcinoma, Stage 3.” They also informed me that it had spread to the intra-abdominal area. So they removed 1/3 of my pancreas and 1/3 of my stomach. During the surgery, they found cancer in my lymph system as well.
I learned that once pancreatic cancer has metastasized to the lymph, a person usually has only about 3 months to live. Because of this, follow-up chemotherapy and radiation were recommended. But when I asked about how those treatments would affect my life expectancy, my oncologist told me that in my case, even with chemo and radiation, I would only have about 6 to 7 months to live!
So I declined radiation and chemo treatments and started searching for a complimentary treatment. I decided on Protocel and have been taking it ever since.
My primary doctor was very helpful. He ordered CA 19.9 and CEA monthly blood tests for 6 months and then every 3 months. It is now almost 1 3/4 years since I was told I’d live only six, maybe seven months, and I feel fine. As of now, there are no indications of any recurrence or any clinical symptoms. Life has been wonderful since after the surgery.
Thought you might like to know.
Thank you for your help.
