Welcome to Pilgrim’s Pathway, our journey together with Him!
At the present time, our journey has taken a somewhat unexpected and difficult twist, in that on December 30, 2010 (our 21st anniversary) during a well woman exam, Paula’s doctor found a lump in her breast. A mammogram and ultrasound, followed by a biopsy, determined it to be aggressive, invasive, multi-focal breast cancer.
Paula, with the help of some friends, spent several weeks researching various options to decide on a plan of attack. She has decided, as her Plan A, to implement the Gerson cancer therapy, designed to help strengthen her God-designed immune system and help de-toxify her body so that it can better fight the cancer.
Paula is planning to follow the strict Gerson protocol for at least 8 weeks to evaluate whether it’s effective in her situation. If not, then she’ll consider the more drastic/invasive options of Plan B (breast removal) and/or Plan C (chemotherapy, radiation, & other drugs). If it appears to be effective, she plans to continue the Gerson therapy for the full recommended period.
We would appreciate your prayers for:
- Healing – that God would use this Gerson therapy. These first eight weeks are especially critical, as we wanting to see if the Gerson therapy will be effective in Paula’s situation.
- Paula (and all of us) to rest, trust in, and walk with the Lord.
- Strength & endurance, as both the cancer & the protocol are difficult.
- Folks to come alongside and help us with juicing, etc.
