Some of you probably know this, but I imagine most are unaware. Merrygirl has been a member here since 2007. She left the board a few years ago because she was doing better and because she was busy taking care of her son who has PANDAS.

Last year she got breast cancer and had to have a double mastectomy. All was good for almost a year.

Now the cancer has returned and it's brain cancer. She just found out she also has it in her lungs and kidneys. She's been given 3-6 months, but with all the fight that is in her, she is determined to beat that.

Merrygirl was one of a HANDFUL of people who kept the case of Justina Pelletier in front of the public. That was LONG before it was finally picked up by the reporting of Beau Berman and then finally, Fox News.

Merrygirl has three children, approximate ages of 4-14, and a wonderful and supportive husband.

PLEASE, she needs your prayers.

That's really sad - I am going to post both urls for the Ty Bollinger's Truth About Cancer series here - I took full notes both times.

It's important to know that many people in these series beat last-stage cancer, including brain cancer, and cancer that had spread.

So she has nothing to lose at this point by going through this and seeing whether she would like to apply any of the healing methods discussed.

If she is not well enough, then perhaps a family member or friend could skim through for her -

The Quest for the Cures - 1st series

http://flash.lymenet.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php/topic/3/34905#000000

A Global Quest - 2nd series

http://flash.lymenet.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php/topic/3/35581#000000

Another option is for her/her family to purchase both video series and watch them for themselves. I did take notes on what everyone was saying.

What this series is about is all these natural ways of treating the body so as to stop cancer.

I recall frankincense being discussed as a natural remedy for brain cancer, amongst many remedies.

And other option yet, is after reading through or watching these series, whether she would want to contact a doctor who helps people fight cancer naturally. It will mean more personalized care.

Merrygirl. We are here for you! If we can help in anyway just "lettuce no".

To add to Robin's info- very good... many of us have also been diagnosed with cancer after, or while actively experiencing Lyme and TBD's. Some multiple times, many with very serious situations. And for those who tried, it has been treatable with antibiotics.

I started collecting studies linking Lyme and cancer, inflammation (like Lyme produces) and cancer, and antibiotics (like doxy) and cancer. It's amazing.

This is one of the original studies I stumbled on years ago and posted. The doxy has been able to not only help animals/pets by reducing or eliminating their tumors, but humans also, including some of our Lyme doctors.

https://sites.google.com/site/marylandlyme/lyme/cancer-doxycycline-studies

There are too many of these studies now to count, but I will gladly provide any further information you may need. Will do a detailed search specifically for you on any type of cancer you have or want studied, just say the word.

In the meantime, prayers it will be, always.

Thanks for the summary TC. I knew she had been thru a lot but it helped to have it written out in one place.

I also know someone started a meal web site for her and a you caring site.

Hoping she has the funds to try some of the non insurance cancer things.

I've been thinking about the situation - people with end-stage cancer are often beating it, according to Ty Bollinger's experts.

So I would like to make a stronger statement that Merrygirl contact Ty at his site, thetruthaboutcancer, and ask him for referrals to integrative cancer-treating doctors who do the personal investigative work with people.

Barring that, then to read through the two series write-ups and think about what might appeal to try. There's a lot of simple remedies there too that are powerful and are reported to turn people's health around.

This is were it all started for me. When I first got lyme in 2007 I lived on this board. I miss our sat night chat room!
I ended up getting Borellia Miyamotoi too. ...

Thank you for all your kind words. This is really hard.

Support makes it easier!

I do want to let you know I will be donating at least my brain to Dr Grier. I hope it can help all of you and future patients


Thank you for your prayers

Hi Merrygirl. I can't imagine how hard this is on you. Lyme is bad enough! Just keep that fighting spirit and not let it win.

You can do it! We'll help you and pray hard.

Just a thought but have you had your immune system checked? From what I've read, cancer takes hold when it's down. I now see where they're using IVIG.

Thank you for planning to donate but we'll wait.
We'll wait until you're a ripe old age. [Wink]

Take up the offers of help. We're pretty good at researching and stuff. While waiting for you to take us up on these offers, I'll be praying for you.

He can heal. [bow]
 
Posted by Robin123 (Member # 9197) on :
 
Hey, Merrygirl, thanks for responding on the board here! You know, a lot of us want to see you keep fighting. You have nothing to lose at this point by trying. I can't think of a better resource than Ty Bollinger to check in with, for a referral, if you can get to a functional medicine doctor who does this work with people.

Ty's two series was full of people who had reached end state. They are alive today because they did various protocols. There are a lot of options. I hope you are reading through the series notes above, at least, and willing to evaluate whether you'd like to try anything.

Something to look into Merrygirl.
You probably saw this on TV about Jimmy Carter.

Below the article is a link to a little information on the immunotherapy and below that is a link to places that offer it.

Just months after finding out he had metastatic cancer, former President Jimmy Carter announced this weekend that his doctors have said he no longer needs cancer treatment thanks in part to a groundbreaking new kind of medication that trains the immune system to fight cancer tumors.

Carter announced in August that he had melanoma that had spread to his liver and brain. He underwent surgery, radiation therapy and a new kind of cancer treatment called immunotherapy to fight the disease.

Speaking at his church this weekend, Carter announced that his doctors are stopping his immunotherapy treatment called pembrolizumab after they saw no signs of tumors over a period of three months. While he has no evidence of the disease, doctors will monitor Carter closely to see if the cancer reoccurs, a representative for the former president said.

"President Carter said today he did not need any more treatments, which he had August 2015 through February 2016, but will continue scans and resume treatment if necessary," a spokeswoman for the Carter Center told ABC News in an email.

She was hoping to be able to qualify for that, but can't now. I think she is getting the same chemo he got, but not the new drug.

Brain cancer is nowhere near the threat it used to be.

Modern medicine is absurdly bad at handling TBI but they've learned a trick or two with cancer. My brother in law had a glioblastoma, very large...had surgery and some limited radiation; totally fine now.
 
Posted by randibear (Member # 11290) on :
 
listen y'all, no offense, but alot of us people with lyme ain't working with a whole brain and we make it.

I'm evidence of that.


husband's nephew's wife, whew, was told she had stage four metastasized breast cancer. no cure. maybe a year. three kids under 12. very Christian devout family. guess what. had double mastectomy, said no to chemo. left it up to God.

cancer free now and doing fine.

you know husband's nephew's wife, whew, was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer which they said was in lymph nodes...inoperable. can't help you jus go home, maybe a couple of months. three children under 12. nephew went insane...I mean he lost it..

she said ok so no treatment...they are very religious. we call them evangelical baptist or as momma would call them, downhome hardshell.

anyway they turned to their church. they go sunday morning and night, wednesday night and Saturday. their church prayed every week.

after several months, she felt better, went back to dr. guess??? no cancer no lumps, said well we must have made mistake. now this woman travelled to Cleveland clinic, mayo, all places.

so God if you're listening, I don't ask anything for me, but please use your powers to heal merry. her family and friends need her here.

I beg of you, please.

did she try genetics? I guess it depends on the type of cancer but a friend of mine- her cousin said goodbye and made funeral arrangements after dr told him he had weeks to live.

his wife took him to american cancer instute (or somethign) and they cured him using his genetics! he wsa totally well after that in 6 months.

im a realist, but sometimes things can happen. I always try to have hope.

Please caress her family with your great and perfect love so they can be as strong as possible and that melissa can feel your presence in them and know she is safe and that her family will be OK. Let your will be done dear Lord, amen.
 
Posted by Lymetoo (Member # 743) on :
 
I copied this from a Facebook page for Melissa. I hope it's OK since no name is attached. It's a great tribute.

--

"I met Melissa through the efforts to #FreeJustina. She was a force of nature. She was leading/organizing protests, doing all the things to make sure that Justina was eventually freed. Justina was held unjustly for 14 months - and Melissa was a key person in getting her freed.

Then I heard more about her activism on other topics (Lyme disease, PANDA, Mitochondrial Disease, etc. , etc.), saving other kids, always being there for others....

Our world is very poor in that we don't have more "Melissa-types" in it... It seemed like we had always had enough of those miraculous ladies (and gentlemen) in the past. Not so anymore...

I do know a number of people who can "hold a candle" to Melissa, but there are very few who "shine as bright" as she does. I know, through my travels, dozens of such people, maybe hundreds of such people.

I have met all types of politicians - local pols, state reps and senators, governors, and more than a dozen presidential candidates, etc. They are very different than CITIZEN ACTIVISTS...

It's easier for politicians when that is "your life," and some (hopefully many) do it for the right reason. I consider citizen activists to be the "real troopers" - those who do it because it is right and "somebody else needs to do it" and they just don't sit around and wait for somebody else to jump in.... THEY are that "somebody else."

I considered citizen activists - people like Melissa - a not-so-regular-mom who dedicated herself to making a difference - as the key to the glue that keeps America together and that will maintain, dare I say, restore, America's greatness.

Melissa always does what is right, she motivated and mustered people, made things happen, and sometimes she was the lone "warrior princess." [this is my favorite phrase for her]

She first found out about her initial curse of breast cancer within a day of Justina being freed. She "kicked cancer's ass"... But cancer came back again... She is always focused on doing good.

About her illness, she once wrote to me: "I am pissed. You know how much good I could get done?" Yes, that *IS* Melissa.

Yes, I put her on a pedestal because, while she could have decided to be just an "ordinary mom" (which is so very important in itself), she dedicated herself to being someone who had to make a difference in people's lives.

And she did, and continues to, through all the people she has helped, fought along side and inspired. She made an indelible impression on me. Her love, goodness and strength of character will live on forever in the people she has touched."

Fairness has nothing to do with what we consider fairness. Who can fathom the why's; it's not ours to know.

Heaven has gained a beautiful angel and Earth has lost a wonderful human being.

Holding her family up in prayer. May Almighty God comfort them and give them strength and healing at this most difficult time.

Your Lymenet family shares your sorrow.

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." Rev 21:4

Merrygirl touched all of us here at Lymenet. Now she is touching the heavens.

May God bless her family during this time.

Im so sad. She always remembered the right dose of doxy to give the dog when he had a tick attached. I hated to ask her knowing she was busy with little ones but she always replied so fast. And Justina...i didnt know what to do...how to fix it...but merrygirl figured it out. Such a special soul. Prayers
To her family.

Praying for her family.

Melissa was a true example of how we should help others.

May God Bless and keep her family close and provide all the strength, comfort and peace they need to get through everyday.

We should honor her in some way - perhaps for the activism she did and wanted to continue to do - the Melissa award for Lyme activism...
 
Posted by hopingandpraying (Member # 9256) on :
 
Excellent idea, Robin!

Oh God. Someone just posted photos from the funeral. It gave me "too much" closure. Still crying.

Thank you. It hurts to think how much the family is hurting.

May the peace that passes all human understanding christen and leaven our individual and collective thoughts to see our dear Melissa gently guided and reassured in her journey with our loving Master and Shepherd:

"The Rose Still Grows Beyond the Wall"

by Almira L. Frink

Near shady wall a rose once grew
Budded and blossomed in God's free light,
Watered and fed by morning dew
Shedding its sweetness day and night.

As it grew and blossomed fair and tall
Slowly rising to loftier height,
It came to a crevice in the wall
Through which there shone a beam of light.

Onward it crept with added strength
With never a thought of fear of pride,
It followed the light through the crevices length
And unfolded itself on the other side.

The light, the dew, the broadening view
Were found the same as they were before,
And it lost itself in beauties new
Breathing its fragrance more and more.

Shall claim of death cause us to grieve
And make our courage faint or fail,
Nay, let us faith and hope receive,
The rose still grows beyond the wall

Scattering fragrance far and wide,
Just as it did in the days of yore
Just as it did on the other side
Just as it will forever more.

Beautiful.

Yes, now we have to think of the family. They will be sick with grief and will need care. Especially for the first year which is the hardest.
