First of all, we want to thank everyone so much who has been praying for us and/or helping us by:
juicing, produce washing, or coffee brewing
encouraging and training others to help with juicing
helping with laundry or cleaning
providing meals, cookies, bread, muffins, or distilled water
With 13 hourly juicings and a five-times-daily detoxifying process, as well as various supplements, the Gerson therapy has been quite difficult, almost overwhelming. It’s been very encouraging to us, though, as different ones in the body have come alongside to help.
It was Paula’s original intent to implement the Gerson therapy for 8 weeks and then evaluate to see if it appeared to be effective in her situation. She recently had some mid-point (4 week) lab work done and also an mid-point ultrasound this past Monday.
We received the ultrasound report yesterday afternoon and, unfortunately, it was not good. We were hoping to see some improvement, but it appears that the main tumor has grown and another significant tumor has now appeared in the same breast.
As a result, with great sadness and heaviness of heart, Paula has decided to abandon the Gerson therapy and proceed to Plan B (Breast removal) and possibly Plan C (Chemotherapy, radiation, and/or other drugs) as well.
As we start to move down this scary path that we had hoped not to take, we appreciate your continued prayers, help, and encouragement.
We plan to continue to use our Paula’s Partners community website to coordinate offers of meals and help (especially as Paula recovers from breast removal surgery and possibly deals with chemotherapy as well).
If you would like to join Paula’s Partners, you can visit www.JPOliver.com and click on Paula’s Partners (on the left-side menu). We also plan to continue updating our Pilgrim’s Pathway blog.
Thanks again to everyone for your help and continued prayers!
John & Paula 🙂
