    Please feel free to write back about your thoughts on the documentary. I'd love to hear what you think, and if the info in it was helpful. Also this is the short link for it:

    You're welcome. I want to share with you a documentary that has helped save many lives of those battling cancer. In this doc, dozens of Doctors and scientists worldwide speak out about the real risks and hidden deception behind many chemical cancer treatments and cancer drugs. They discuss in detail, information that's typically not given to cancer patients prior to treatments. They also discuss safer, more effective natural cures that have been suppressed, that many Naturopaths and homeopathic doctors have used for years to successfully treat cancer. These doctors emphasize how critical diet and nutrition is to healing cancer. Many cancer survivors give their personal testimonies in this video as well. This is the link below. I pray this free info will bless you and anyone you know who has to battle cancer: TRUTH ABOUT CANCER: A GLOBAL QUEST-DOCUMENTARY. Produced and Released by The Truth About Cancer Initiative. www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqJAzQe7_0g

    Hi Britt, I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I want to share a personal story with you that will be helpful to know and kearn from. Last year my friend Robert was diagnosed with lymphoma, and after his first full set of chemo, he came down with a secondary cancer in his spine, plus a variety of miscellaneous health issues as a result of the treatments. What's interesting is that his doctors never once informed him that lymphoma patients are 14 times more likely to develop leukemia, and 6 times more likely to develop cancers of the bones, joints, and soft tissues than those patients who did not undergo chemotherapy. This information is published in the National Cancer Institute Journal, yet the majority of Oncologists do not warn patients of this. (*I'm including the direct quote from the NCI Journal at the end of this email for reference.) Unfortunately, we didn't learn this until after he developed a secondary cancer. I don't know what method of treatment you're using, but I want to share this with you so you can make the best decision possible with treatment. I pray this info is helpful. Many blessings to you! * Quote from NCI Journal "A study of over 10,000 patients shows clearly that chemo’s supposedly strong track record with Hodgkin’s disease (Lymphoma) is actually a lie. Patients who underwent chemo were 14 times more likely to develop leukemia and 6 times more likely to develop cancers of the bones, joints, and soft tissues than those patients who did not undergo chemotherapy (NCI Journal 87:10).”—John Diamond, M.D.

      Thank you. I've done some research and I know it is possible with ABVD chemo to get a second cancer and lymphoma patients are more prone to leukemia. However, the percentages are rather low (10% and 1-3% respectively).
