Day 13: Still Slowing Down

I thank God immensely for all of you and your prayers and words of encouragement.  Forgive me that I’m unable to address you individually most of the time.  I try to keep my online communications at minimum to not drain myself of the precious little energy I have, so I usually only get to email Gil.

Yesterday, Doc visited me and the time of consultation and prayer was what I needed indeed!  He explained that the liquid diet I am on really minimizes my energy level & patients who are on the diet pretty much just sleep, eat, and do treatments.  He also said that this is “my” program so the program adjusts to me, not the other way around.  Sigh of relief!  Continued…

Day 6: Living with my Emotions

Thank you so much to everyone for the heartfelt prayers and support.  Today is my first “chillax” treatment day since I started the 21-day intensive alternative cancer treatment on March 15th.  Chillaxing means I do about 2/3 of what I normally do.  A bit more on that another time.

It’s afternoon and I’ve had a somewhat emotional morning wrestling with angst over life’s delays…one thing I am learning is instead of suppressing my emotions, I am learning to reflect on them and slowly understand what it takes to align them with Scripture.  One fabulous book that is mentoring me through this new terrain is “Feeling Like God: The Emotional Side of Discipleship – and why you can’t fully follow Jesus without it” by Chris Tiegreen.  Talk about a paradigm shift!  I’m almost half-way through and its message truly resonated with me because deep in my soul, I had always known this yet have conformed with the norm, or what the author calls “Vulcan Christianity” (aka joyless obedience or being like the Pharisees).  I’m sure many of us can relate.

Hello & Hafa Adai!

My name is Mia and this is my journey to be healed from cancer.  I am 33 and a non-smoker diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in late December 2009 because it has spread to my brain.  I was about to also do a bone survey & CT scan of my abdomen, but decided against it after researching that doing more scans could actually contribute to cancer spreading more.  I especially decided this having just gone through 5 or more scans in a span of less than 2 weeks.

On this site, I will be writing about my experience to pursue being cancer free while prioritizing alternative cancer treatments.  I am encouraged to hear and read stories about people who have found and used their cancer cure, and I hope that I will become one of them.  Family and friends have also contacted us about how they can help, and one in particular, Diana Learned, started the concept more than 2 months ago of having a site which will also provide a means to make donations for anyone able to do so.  We are heeding her wonderful suggestion and we thank all of you for your love, support, and prayers as I go through this healing season.

(Note: This site is very new and in progress, but we’ll start updating more soon.)
