My Birthday

I reached a new milestone in my life and can now check off the box marked 50 and over.  I'm not sad about it.  In fact, I'm VERY happy because it means I've lived FIVE YEARS past my initial Stage III Colon Cancer diagnosis in 2007.  Ecstatic!  Take that, doctors and nurses who told me I wouldn't make it!  Bam! Pow!

I had an awesome birthday!  My parents came up for my party.  Both my sons and their families were able to attend, and my mother in law was also there!  Phil had the week off for vacation and we shopped for food and cake on Friday.  Went to Sam's Club and bought way too much food.  I picked up the cutest birthday cake.  I love pink and all things girly.  I had the cake decorated with my name in pink.  We took lots of pictures.



I hadn't had a birthday party since I turned 16.  This was even better!  I'm looking forward to what God has in store for me and I thank him every day for giving me additional time to enjoy with my family.

Happy birthday!, and may you enjoy dozens more!!!
Hello, my name is Ari, I am a survivor (so far...) of two cancers, a widower of a cancer victim (now re-married..) and is dedicated to fighting cancer, and helping others do so.
I lived in Toronto, Canada (my family is in southern California), and last year, after marriage, I moved to the Philippines. I am majority owner of a Dialysis clinic, and built a unique cancer clinic, the one I dreamt of having when my first wife was struggling. I took her to Mexico clinics twice, for treatments (which were very successful!), talked to dozens of physicians, and always found lack of properly equipped clinics, which could do a lot better if they were.
Along the way, I have gained insight of how proper Hyperthermia should be applied. This is a method which doubles the success rate of conventional therapies, and alternative ones as well, provided it is done properly. I have purchased the most powerful device for this, and added two other types of devices, which when applied in the right order, prevent a process of DE-sensitizing of cancer cells to the effects of specific frequency hyperthermia. We also do mild whole body hyperthermia in order to strengthen the immune system (with no side effects),and help reach the right thermo-therapeutic levels within the tumour.(the right temperature simply destroys the tumour...). There are also other aspects to this, biological ones, which for lack of commercial incentive (UN-patentable..) is not pursued by multinational pharmaceutical corporations which control all medical research in the field.
I also introduced other forms of immunotherapy, and alternative cytotoxic elements, such as Helixor, a mistletoe extract, which has three times better success rate then most chemo agents, without the side effects.
I can give information about many clinics I learned about, (mainly in Mexico and Germany)

Thanks,
