Beautiful weather and beautiful results!

The weather here in New Hampshire is fabulous - sunny skies and temps between the mid 60's and low 70's.  And to go along with the gorgeous weather, I have more good news - my tumor markers dropped from 500 on 4/11 to 275 on 5/1!!!  When you find a chemo that works, the results can be dramatic!  And the better news is that this chemo is not too harsh with its side effects.  My blood counts are a little low, but not so low that I couldn't have treatment on Wednesday and I have my week off so now I've got two weeks for blood counts to rebound. 

And did I mention that I went on another little San Juan with my sister!  We spent six days oceanfront and by a nice pool enjoying the sun and 80 degree weather, and maybe a cocktail or two :>)  We had a really great time despite a few service issues with the hotel (Marriott).  She got really lucky in the casino and came home with all her money...I, on the other hand, was not that lucky.  But it was fun hanging out with her and it's a good thing she has a strong grip - she had to open every single water bottle because I had no chance.  Those caps were ridiculously tight.  And she treated me to a great meal for my birthday in Old San Juan.  We both came home with fabulous tans - we were at the pool in our favorite sun-worshiping position by 8:30 every morning!

And one more piece of good news - I have a new great granddaughter. Katie and Deven (Ron's Christine's son) welcomed to their family Miss Lilyana Regina, 7 lbs 14 oz  this past Tuesday.

  6. As a sign of gratitude for how my wife was saved from CANCER, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My wife suffered cancer in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because she was my all and the symptoms were terrible, she always complain of abnormal vaginal bleeding, and she always have pain during sexual intercourse. . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure her. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to cancer . I never imagined cancer. has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my wife will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my wife used it and in one months time she was fully okay even up till this moment she is so full of life. cancer. has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony.

  7. I recently have some difficult conversations and I did what a lot of people do when they want to know how to do something. I googled it. I came across Dr Williams herbal medicine on YouTube so many people thanking him about his good work. I also have lungs cancer. I wasn’t running all over God’s creation with every man I could find but here I am. I have felt bad about myself for so many years now because of my cancer status. I obviously still have some self-accepting to do but I want to thank Dr Williams for everything he have done for my family ,after taking Dr Williams medicine i was completely free from lungs cancer within one month of usage, I think what you are doing is so admirable. you have helped me a lot! I want to definitely reach out to you and thank you for your amazing work. You are a good person, and an extremely talented man. You have helped millions with your herbs, and have really inspired me,and i pray you still continue doing the good can also email him on for help
