It's been a while since I've started a thread. I wanted to say that sometimes miracles do happen and the devil loses. I have a niece who has breast cancer that metathesized to other areas and she was given just 2 years to live. She's a school teacher for special ed students. There is an experimental therapy having to do with mistletoe that's used in Europe that she wanted to try. It's not covered by insurance so I told her I'd cover the cost.

Here is where it gets dicey. I'm in the middle of a bitter divorce with who I refer to as respondent who thinks cancer is an earned curse. In respondent's case she said my niece deserved it because she couldn't keep her husband. A long story but yeah a real charmer.

Part of the legal BS is each party can't spend money without the other's consent beyond normal things. Although I paid for her father's cancer treatment and her mother's house remodel years back she refused to consent to me using my own earnings to help my niece. Respondent has never contributed a dime to the joint anything from her earnings. I went through the lawyers just to get it documented. Respondent referred to my niece as a "third party" to dehumanize her the more saying she does not consent. Or maybe it was her POS lawyer, but either way, it's her wishes that my niece receives no help from me. I expected that but I gave them the big you know what and did it anyhow. I just wanted to get it in writing from her because respondent sells herself publicly as a church going, choir singing, holy roller who never uses cuss words. Is she an extreme hypocrite?

After just over a month of this therapy the tumors have shrunk considerably and if this continues she'll survive. It's being used in conjunction with a form of chemo a lot of us are familiar with, Xeloda. Same stuff I took which really does a number on you. Goes to show God works miracles when needed and to never give up hope in the face of any adversary.

Must say it was far more stressful than having Stage 4 Cancer.

The devil never wins. Even in death.

The study is by an outfit called Capstone. I think it's one of those hit or miss type therapies where it either works really well or does next to nothing. In her case it did quite a bit of good. It sounded like voodoo witch doctor stuff initially until I did some reading on mistletoe therapy and how it's used in Europe. I thought maybe it was like the garbage I've seen here where charlatans who prey on the desperate extort for profit but it has actual bona fide research and applicable results. The cost wasn't that much either. I expected it be well into 5 figures but so far it's under $2k. It was dirt cheap for saving a life. Score one for the good guys I say.
