My father was declared “cancer free” this week.
He was diagnosed with stage four non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma last year. As a 78 year old man, his prognosis was not particularly good. He had a sizable tumor in his throat close to his artery and another in his groin. When they did further tests they found one more under one arm. Because the tumors presented themselves on different sides of his body, the assumption was that the cancer was already throughout his system and was well established.
The doctor’s first concern was the size of the tumor in his throat which was threatening the artery to his brain. Surgery was required to remove a piece of it but the part closest to the artery had to be left behind. The second concern was not knowing if Dad could withstand the potency of chemotherapy that would be required to fight this type of cancer.
We are so grateful that we knew about Immunocal’s patents as a chemotherapy agent and it’s moderating action on the damaging side effects of chemotherapy. We got Dad started on 6 packs a day immediately. The oncologist said he was too busy to really study the material about Immunocal that we took to him, but said that it couldn’t hurt.
Dad has been through four or five cycles of treatments over the last few months. He never felt ill or nauseated at all. The only side effects he experienced were some mouth sores at various times in the cycles. Even though each cycle made him weaker, his over all side effects were very minimal and the doctor was extremely pleased with the way that he was tolerating the treatments.
Throughout the last few months, the doctor grew increasingly more and more optimistic as he watched Dad’s progress. And last week, after a CAT scan, Dad was told that there was no cancer to be found anywhere in his body!! He still will go through a few more rounds of chemo, but at this time he has beat it! We are so very grateful that there are tools like Immunocal to be useful at this time in history!
