    Default Got some bad news.

    Hey guys. I would like to ask you all to say some prayers or your personal equivalent. We were told today that my brother in law has a very aggressive form of cancer and has 5 years. He has been a rock for this entire family ever since he joined it and we do not want to lose him. I will take any advice and prayers that you are all willing to give.

    Prayers and warm thoughts are coming you way for you, your family and most of all your brother in law. Be positive for great things are being discovered everyday in finding a cure for this terrible disease . I went through this with a loved one and I know it is as hard on friends and family as it is the patient. Be sure to take care of yours self. Just know we are always here for you.

    as he was a rock to others now others shall be a rock unto him is how I believe.
    Prayers on the way and remember not to bring him down but lift him up through all his issues he will face.

    God Bless

    I'm not an advocate but look for the documentary Burzynski The Movie - Cancer Is Serious Business - you can find it on the internet to watch in full.
    I wish your family all the best.

    Prayers are on the way. giving the person moral support is very important coz as Bill mentioned, it is very important to have a positive attitude. take a lot of fresh vege and fruits, it helps coz it alkalize the blood pH which makes it undesirable for the cancer cells. these juices are also high in antioxidant and phytochemicals that enhances our body immune cells (the natural killer cells and the T helper cells)
    i used to blend these vege and fruit juice for my belated aunt that is also a cancer patient. since then, i also started to take these drinks for myself, and i vouch for it's health benefits (even scars that had been with me for ages started to disappear after about a year of taking these drinks)..
    wishing you all the best and may better days are ahead.
