My wife "Kitti" was diagnose with BC in her left areola back in April of 2000. Needless to say, she was horrified! I was with her in the room with the oncologist delivered the grim news. Of course, a second opinion was in order.
The diagnosis was confirmed, after a biopsy and she was given the options of: a lumpectomy with radiation, or, chemo and radiation, or, a mastectomy of the left breast with radiation. "Kitti" opted for a mastectomy with no chemo, or, radiation; since the lesion was localized to the areola. She did agree to take Tamoxifen.
The surgery occurred in May of 2000. Of course, I was there, every step of the way. Interestingly, one of the attending nurses asked if I would be around after the surgery and reconstruction. I personally thought that it was a rather curious question. But, then she clarified why she asked it. She stated "many men leave their wives or partners after breast surgery."
Frankly, I could not believe that. The thought never entered by mind to do such a thing. How could I leave my wife because she was ill? What kind of man would leave his wife during the most difficult, emotionally exhausing and fearful time of her life; when she has a potentially deadly sickness? Of course, the idea was ridiculous to me. How would I feel if my wife left me simply because I had to have a diseased testical surgically removed?
In 2003, while still on Tamoxifen, we were introduced to a remarkable scientifically-sound natural protein therapy to optimize her immune system, which her oncologist approved. With wonderful test results at each annual visit; in May of 2005, she was pronounced CANCER-FREE and taken off of Tamoxifen. We were estatic!
Since May of 2005, she has continued to daily utilize the protein therapy as a part of her every day diet.
Today, in 2009, after receiving an excellent test report from her most recent annual checkup (April), "Kitti" remains cancer-free and enjoying her life; and I am enjoying it with her. That's the way it should be!

If there was truly a cure, the people who find it will receive a Nobel Prize. It is fearmongering to imply that there is a potential "cure" that is being hidden from us. Healthy lifestyle is important but despite it, many of us get bc anyway. Everyone has to do what is best for him or herself and has to feel comfortable with their own decisions. But I do take offense, Waynejay, that you seem to be promoting your own agenda on these boards. I do commend you for being supportive of your wife.

The links you are referring too were requested by one of the members on that forum. She asked if anyone knew of sites with alternative (complementary) therapies. I simply provided her with a complementary therapy link and a research link. (By the way, some of the information on that research link can be found in your doctor's Physician's Desk Reference (PDR). You should ask about it.
If the moderators feel that my sincere desire to share my wife's inspiring story, which is what this forum is about, 'crosses the line,' and that I be restricted from any sharing on any of these forums, I will wholeheartedly respect their decision.
Frankly, I am surprised at such negative attacks from women who are looking for encouraging information and inspiring true stories.
Perhaps, my enthusiasm over my wife's recovery, which was greatly impacted by her immune system's response to the cancer, spurs my passion on this subject. Nonetheless, I am not interested in "selling" anything to any of these courageous women suffering from cancer. However, if I sincerely believe, as I do, that based on sound science as well as the experiences of a number of my wife and several of her personal friends with cancer, that the information about glutathione is at least worth investigating, I feel that each cancer sufferer should know about this research and ask their healthcare practioner about it.

Holly, despite the unkind statement that you made, I want everyone who has followed these posts to know that I have been married to Kitti for 35 years. We have two married daughters both of whom could be potentially at risk because of Kitti's cancer history.
By the way, the experience I told of my wife would not have been complete if I did not include the part about her immune system. In fact, Kitti's story is part of the reason why I actually changed professions from a Electrical Utility Systems Manager, to become a wellness consultant. Believe or not, I wanted to bring some measure of hope and comfort to other families facing this disease.
Happily, Kitti and I have shared her story with others who have cancer, who have enjoyed similar improvements with their doctor's support; such as: Alfreda P.(Georgia), Susie B. (Florida), Marcia G. (Georgia). These ARE all real people with real touching stories.

Your apology is sincerely accepted. Let me also take this time to apologize to any of the women who were offended by my statement. It was in reaction to all of the accusations as to my motives.
After some recent reflection on the reactions I received from some of the "family" here, it dawned on me that perhaps, because of past and current attempts to offer a cancer "cure" and facing the fears,disappointments and frustrations associated with the conventional treatments; it is somewhat understandable why some feel compelled to "pounce" on anyone, or anything that smacks of commercialising on the illness of others.
Of course, you must understand that, although, not a woman, I have been with Kitti to every single doctor's appointment, test, consultation, you name it. We've learned quite a bit about taking more responsibility for one's own health, since her bout with cancer. We have literally gone through this ordeal together. I am extremely proud of my wife and I feel that every sufferer should have strong moral support; every step of the way.
Yet, we have personally witnessed women as advanced as Stage IV, desperate for assistance after the doctors have said to them, "there is nothing more that we can do."; have remarkable improvements once their immune systems were optimized. This is clinically sound.
Even Kitti's oncologist, who was familiar with the relationship between this self-produced protein, glutathione, and the immune system; though advising that we continue her personal therapy, sadly, likely said nothing about this to the other 25 women with cancer, anxiously awaiting in his office. Further, even though the PDR specifically states cancer is essentially a "glutathione-deficient state" and there are literally tens of thousands of research articles on it, many cancer patients have never heard of it. Why not?
Frankly, this angered me. Those women were every bit as worthy as my wife to know what we had learned. Of course, under the circumstances we could not say anything to them. Perhaps, some, if not all of them, may have had similar outcomes if their immune systems were working more correctly.
So Kitti remains NED (instead of Cancer-free). We are so grateful. You can be sure that I will continue to do everything in my power to insure that her immune system stays optimized. Our gratitude for what we have learned about how to do this moves me to at least encourage cancer sufferers to check into this. After all, it is YOUR body and YOUR life.
