Being a Pancreatic Cancer Survivor, as Tom has been for the past 4 1/2 years is truly an oxymoron. The first step was surgical to remove traces of the cancer and parts or all of the organs that the cancer cells had attached to. Next was 6 months of Chemotherapy. Aided by alternative and Naturopathic support, the next 3 years Tom was cancer free, and he vowed to live life with passion, energy, including dancing several days a week and being an active member of his community. He and his wife Mindy, have gained a wealth of knowledge on what supports the body and immune system dealing with the onslaught of cancer, chemotherapy and challenging drugs.  Most everything Tom has chosen in his survival with cancer has been naturopathic and alternative including: IV therapy (high dose Vitamin C, Mistletoe, and immune supports), more than 50 daily supplements, Energy Medicine (Tom trained and after 3 years of study, became a Certified Eden Energy Medicine Practitioner) and recently, Hyperthermia treatments, available only in British Columbia have been added to his survival regime.  All of this comes out of Tom's pocket because our medical system will not support any of it with the exception of chemotherapy.  If Tom had used Chemotherapy alone, he would no longer be alive and we would not be asking for your support.
          So now a call, to help this family as Tom seeks out effective, alternative treatment to Pancreatic Cancer.  These alternative treatments are not covered by insurance, but Tom is living proof that they work. Next week he is going back to British Colombia for his second round of intensive hyperthermia treatment and I am hoping that our town, of which Tom has been a member of for decades can help him with this expense. His last round of hyperthermia treatment was a success, his tumors shrank!  This is a call for those of us who believe in the power of holistic treatment, who believe that local, organic food can nourish and heal the body and soul, a call for us, as a community to help Tom for all the years he has volunteered as a board member of too many organizations to list, as a provider of local food and purveyor of permaculture knowledge.  I am asking our little mountain town to help this man with his battle against cancer.
         We are eternally grateful for donations of any size, however, for donations over $110, Tom is offering an Energy Medicine session.  For larger donations from people afar, Mindy and Tom would like to open their home for an evening stay in Durango, where you can partake in a wonderful organic dinner, an energy session or a massage (provided by Mindy who has 30 years of experience in therapeutic massage). Thank you for your donation.

Here I am about to get my third Stereotactic Body Radio Therapy (SBRT) treatment. This is the latest in radiation technology. Instead of a single beam of radiation, the proton 'gun' on this machine rotates around the tumor that is being treated. The bed I am on moves to put the tumor in correct place. I am actually in a mold that holds me in an exact position so the proton beam finds its target. The dead tumor cells created by the radiation help my T-killer cells (which are being helped by Keytruda -- the immuntherapy drug) to find and destroy any remaining tumor cells. Thanks to all of you who have contributed to my Campaign. Your gifts allow me to continue the supplements, testing and treatments that are keeping me alive and healthy!!

I am so glad that we are able to spend time in the garden together. I am also happy that we are able to provide organic, local produce to support your journey of healing. I know that the garden nourishes not only your body but also your soul. I want to thank you for all the time you have spent healing and helping others through the garden.

Much Love,
Jamie
