"non-small celled lung cancer"
 
   Hi everyone.

Im new here, just signed up.
My mother was diagnosed with non-small celled lung cancer in january and now has metastasis to the bones and is feeling very sick.
She is only 54 years old, and struggles with anxioty and fear of getting sicker and die.
The doctors here says she has only months left and says we will not have her here for christmas. it just brakes my heart knowing I will loose my mother, the most importent person in my life.
After getting a death sentence here we have decided to go to the greatwall cancer hospital in beijing, hoping they can help her alittle bit.
But has anyone any stories about people with that diagnoses that has been helped with DCA? I will do anything to keep my mother alive, and we are desperate.
Reading the stories on this site about all the tragic stories about people losing their loved ones. Im dreading that day and I dont know what to do. We need some hope, something to hold on to. Right now I feel in my heart that its not going to be OK, and im devestated.
we`re not expecting a miracle cure that will make her cancer free, but if DCA could give her a few more good years, that would be a miracle in itself.
Hope to hear from you all, and hope you have some happy stories for me :)
Best
Anette

   Thank you so much for your reply. I am finding alot of hope reading all these posts from all these great people.
And its just amazing to me how almost everyone here has has had a positive experience with DCA.
Its very encouraging!
My mom is very stubborn, and she only wants to concentrate on one thing at a time. But as im reading here, and what I`ve been telling her for months, is that people do what they need to even if they have to take hundreds of different supplements a day. Tomorrow her and my dad is leaving for china, hoping they can help her there, so now she only wants to do that. But I also want her to start on DCA. I miss that fighting spirit in her that so many people here have, that they will do anything to live.. but she easily gets discouraged. She says she doesnt want to die but she gives up anyway. Its extremely frustrating to watch.
I hope she will be pursuaided to start DCA, cause I know she will regret it afterwards if she doesnt.

Thank you for your prayers and thougths, its gonna be a rough time so I think we need them.

Anette

Read everything you can- I mean testimonials. Not just on this site. It IS frustrating to see someone act like they are giving up or not do everything they can. A lifetime of choices is what got us where we are at; so a lot of change is the only thing that is going to get us out. This is crucial to understand.

   Seven months ago my mother was diagnosed with cancer...she is nearly 74. In retrospect it is clear that since that first day of diagnosis she was sliding down the slippery slope of depression and anxiety....she appeared to be handling everything very well and wasn't obviously emotional in any way. However, when discussing with her other alternative therapies etc. she seemed "closed off" to it....she would say perhaps later, when everything else fails. I was, like you, desperate to get her to start DCA at the very least but respected her rejection of it. Time passed and she went through radiotherapy, surgery and chemo and at the end of this she was in a terrible mental state....finally, her GP instigated some therapy for her depression and, about two weeks later, it was like the mother I knew before the diagnosis had returned.....So, we started discussing alternative therapies again and amazingly she was keen to try all....I don't have any definitive DCA results to share with you at this time but I thought it was worthwhile sharing our story so far.

It is so easy to dismiss a "depressed mood" as normal in cancer..."why wouldn't you be depressed?"..or "it's a normal reaction"....absolutely true but what we forget is that depression is a debilitating state in itself, let alone adding in the diagnosis of cancer and the treatment ahead. Treatment is available and is quite miraculous in some people!

Good luck to you and everyone that reads this....

Kylie

P.S. Your mum may not be depressed but some of what you said in your posts sounded so familiar so I thought it was worth bringing up!
