Her name is Katie Kirkpatrick, 21 yrs old. Next to

her is her fiancé, Nick, 23. This picture was taken

prior to their wedding January 11th, 2012. Katie

has terminal cancer and spends hours in

chemotherapy. Here Nick awaits while she finishes

one of the sessions...

 

Even in pain and dealing with her organs shutting

down, with the help of morphine, Katie took care

of every single part of the wedding planning. Her

dress had to be adjusted several times due to Katie's

constant weight loss.

 

 

 

Katie, in a wheel chair listening to her husband and friends singing to her.

 

An expected guest was her oxygen tank. Katie had

to use it during the ceremony and reception. The

other couple in this picture is Nick's parents, very

emotional with the wedding and to see their son

marrying the girl he fell in love when he was an adolescent.

 

In the middle of the party, Katie had to rest for a bit

and catch her breath. The pain does not allow her to stand for long period of time.

 

 Katie died 5 days after her wedding. To see a fragile

woman dress as a bride with a beautiful smile makes

you think... Happiness is always there within reach,

no matter how long it lasts. Let’s enjoy life and don't

live a complicated life. Life is too short. Work as if it was your first day.

Forgive as soon as possible. Love without boundaries. Laugh without

control and never stop smiling. 

 

Cancer is curable, without the horrible treatments like this young lady had to endure...treatments that also aided the cancer in killing her, because they are also carcinagenic. What frosts me is hundreds or thousands of children that are suffering through this horror...for what?...so drug companies can make billions of dollars!  See this site 

Cancer progress?  Really!

Medical science has made incredible advances in our lifetimes — but one sobering truth remains. "If you look at the death rate from cancer, there's no dramatic change over the last five decades," says David Agus, author of The End of Illness and the head of University of Southern California's Westside Cancer Center. "There are little wins, but no dramatic change."

  

 

"Cancer is Man-Made," Scientists Admit
How to overcome cancer in 10 natural ways

A recent study by University of Manchester scientists has strongly suggested that ... cancer is a modern, man-made disease caused by environmental factors such as pollution and diet.

 In the extensive study conducted at the University's KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, scientists examined hundreds of mummies and found ... no signs of cancer—except for one isolated case.

Professor Michael Zimmerman said: "In an ancient society lacking surgical intervention, evidence of cancer should remain in all cases." Therefore, the virtual absence of tumors and malignancies in mummies must necessarily be interpreted as evidence that cancer was indeed rare in ancient times.

The 17th Century Ushers Cancer In
It wasn't until the 17th century that the first reports of cancer appeared in scientific literature—such as cancer of the scrotum (found in chimney sweeps in 1775, caused by soot particles); and nasal cancer found in users of snuff (finely ground tobacco) in 1761.

The University of Manchester study indicates that cancer-causing factors exist only in modern, industrialized societies—and cancer is fueled by the excesses of modern life.

Here are Just a Few Factors Present in
Modern Life That Cause Cancer:

Tobacco (including second-hand smoke)
Genetically modified food

Chemical food preservatives, such as sodium nitrite

artificial flavors like MSG

Diet drinks and foods containing Aspartame and other artificial sweeteners

All processed foods

Foods containing high fructose corn syrup,

which is largely made from genetically modified corn

 Most laundry detergents
Commercial hair dyes
Air pollution (including carbon monoxide, methylene
chloride, and acrolein)
 
Granite countertops (which emit radon)

Rancid peanuts and seeds
Canola oil, soybean oil, corn and other GM oils

All hydrogenated oils

Canned foods

Food laced with pesticides

Chemicals from aerosol cans
 
Mammograms

X-Rays 

 Food microwaved in plastic containers (including
plastic wrap, the plastic trays that come with frozen
TV dinners, and even plastic baby bottles)

Environmental pollutants (such as asbestos, benzene, and
formaldehyde)


Professor Rosalie David, at the Faculty of Life Sciences, said:
There is Nothing in the Natural Environment That Can Cause Cancer ... So It Has to Be a Man-Made Disease

Given the prevalence of cancer-causing factors in the modern world, what can you do to escape cancer?

Many scientists agree that a healthy diet ... regular physical activity ... and maintaining a healthy weight can prevent about one-third of the most common cancers.

But ... eating healthy is not a guarantee that you'll never get cancer.

Even those who think they have a healthy diet are not immune to cancer. Consider the case of Linda McCartney, the late wife of Beatle Paul McCartney. She was a life-long vegetarian, who also wrote a book on vegetarian cooking and produced a line of frozen vegetarian meals. Yet, despite her healthy eating, she died of breast cancer at the age of 56.

Regular physical activity—although definitely a healthy thing to do—is not a guarantee either. Consider Lance Armstrong, 7-time Tour de France cycling champion. He engaged in more physical activity than most people, and yet he was diagnosed with Stage 2 testicular cancer.

Maintaining a healthy weight also does not assure you of immunity from cancer. Many physically fit celebrities have fallen prey to cancer—Patrick Swayze, Jaclyn Smith, Robert Urich, Suzanne Somers, Farrah Fawcett, etc.

The problem with what Professor David says here is that these are the kinds of reasons people use for their brain dead excuses for doing NOTHING.  The fact is that leaving out any of these contributing factors may result in cancer.  For example, though you may eat a well balanced diet of clean, non-GMO organic foods, you still have to remove toxins from your environment and you still have to drink filtered water and you still need to stay active (exercise, sports, physical work), and you still have to avoid drugs, tobaco and alcohol and you need to keep abreast of other health information to be sure all the steps you have taken are the best science available. 

Consider a vegan diet; The claim has been that a plant based diet alone is the healthiest.  There are a number of studies that indicate some animal protein is essential to health. There are also numerous studies that indicate stress and other emotional factors significantly effect all bodily functions. Another factor is your musculoskeletal health. You can have pinched nerves in your spine that prevent proper digestion and result in colon cancer as well numerous other maladies. The moral to this story is that God has given you an amazing body but it must be taken care of and listened to.  Aches and pains are signals that something needs to be attended to, but not as it is usually done by most people (i.e. take a pill). Always seek natural treatments (i.e.one found at the budwigcenter.com) that may involve a trip to a wellness chiropractor or certain exercises or avoiding certain foods, more relaxation, etc..

One of the most insidious health dangers is from pesticides. Foods we consider as healthy are often contaminated with cancer-causing glyphosates (most all wheat is doused with this stuff) and there are so many chemicals I can't pronounce used on crops the world over, it is frightening. Tea grown in India and China and marketed worldwide under labels we are all familiar with, such as Celestial Seasonings, Lipton and Tetley, have been found to contain a cocktail of 34 different pesticides according to Greenpeace studies.
