I want the best results for every cancer patient I meet, whether speaking
to them on my radio show or in my practice, the first question I ask
them is always the same: "Have you called CANHELP so you really
know what is available for your cancer?" (excerpt from letter)

email re Lithuanian breast cancer client
It's been a while since we talked last time. I hope you are doing
I thought about you so many times and keep you in my prayers always.
You became like a guardian angel for us giving us hope and tools teaching
how not to give up and not loose faith balancing on that fragile line
between "to be " or "not to be".
just felt I wanted to express my gratitude to you for supporting us
when we felt so lost and helpless and abandoned by everybody with
that horrifying diagnosis on the white sheet in our hands.Knowing
nothing and scared to death. I can not find words how blessed I feel
having known you. I am sorry to take your precious time for reading
this email, but I just had to say these words to you.I carried them
in my heart for a long time.
E is feeling good. She lives her live and enjoys it as much as she
can . I do not know all the details how to describe her medical condition
now, G (E's husband) would be much better at that, giving all the
terms. I know that her tumor marker has been gradually decreasing
since she came back from Germany. She continues to use that low dosage
chemo drug that they started in Germany and feeling almost no side
affects and she is also using Dr.D's healing course with vitamins
etc. She is always so positive about whatever happens to her that
I just admire her attitude and her strength.
G and I feel so much thankful to you for everything - for the knowledge
and support and valuable contacts your provided us with, most importantly
for having hope and E with us.
Before I finish , I would like to ask you to keep us on the list of
your patients. I would choose not to loose this precious connection
with you .
From the depths of my heart I wish you strength, health and all the

services are life saving! Madeleen and CANHELP have kept me alive
and guided me through a maze of otherwise overwhelming obstacles commonly
known as conventional cancer therapies and alternative therapies.
A sane grounded voice at the same time supportive and personalized
to my particular needs as a person and a cancer fighter. It has shifted
me from an incompetent and frightened patient to an empowered, informed
and determined-to-live-through-this individual...I have a team of
my own creation and it continues to grow and evolve to my needs. The
phone calls to CANHELP have been especially helpful. I was literally
carried through my first year on the phone by Madeleen. This personal
and accessible touch is unlike any other." KD,

looked around and spoke with various cancer research services, but
settled on working with Madeleen from CANHELP, because she was personable,
knowledgeable and has walked the walk (with breast cancer). And I
did not have to go through a lengthy process to get the information
I needed for my wife who was just diagnosed with breast cancer. E.B.,

Herreshoff has been a major contributor to my year-old progress from
the discovery of pancreatic cancer to the disappearance of the tumor
and the restoration of my health. Ms. Herreshoff educated me about
sources of natural and other effective alternative methods of treatment.
Ms. Herreshoff has a wide acquaintance and stays up-to-date with experienced
practitioners of both conventional and alternative cancer medicine.
She is very knowledgeable, readily available, and, above all, a compassionate
advisor." TB, WA (80 year old man diagnosed
with a tumor originating in the head of the pancreas. He was told
his tumor was inoperable and he was told to put his affairs in order.
A year after his diagnosis, the CT scan could not find any evidence
of the mass. Today, three years later he is still cancer free.
I heard you speak on the radio about cancer treatment options and
was skeptical that you would be able to help me with my breast cancer
wound and re-occurring mass. As I told you, this is the third time
around for me, originally with M.D. Anderson hospital in Texas, then
a naturopathic doctor and then the Internet and many herbs.
am amazed at the research that your office has done and so very thankful.
I have started the process of talking to the various referrals you
have provided. Thank you so much.
Yesterday I received my report from you. I want to thank you so much
- the information was far and above what I expected and I wouldn't
doubt that something in there will save my life. I will be recommending
you to anyone I run into interested in fully investigating treatment
options for cancer.

"I wrote you a letter seeking help and advise regarding an ulcerated,
malignant tumor on my right breast. The doctors ...recommended surgery,
chemotherapy and radiation. I had a distaste for surgery and conventional
chemotherapy and did not feel it was advisable for me at the age of
76. I am writing to thank you for introducing me to Dr. W. Tuesday
of this week I received an excellent report- no more bleeding ulceration-
no more bandages (not even a band-aid), no more tumor-- PRAISE GOD--
I am so thankful for people like you and Dr. W. who are dedicated
to helping others." IP, Seattle, WA, (76

letter is to thank you for your concern, compassion and assistance
for my wife and myself. It is also to encourage you to continue helping
cancer patients such as my wife and their family. My wife has suffered
tremendously from conventional chemotherapy treatment for lymphoma
and with little hope for a long or joyous life. With your help we
were able to initiate treatment with an oncologist who not only believes
in but practices immunology. Our hopes for her recovery are now very
high. Your courage and initiative to seek out the truth and bring
it to the public's attention is very admirable." DH,
Seattle, WA (re Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma)
considering all the options presented in your report, we decided on
the liver cancer treatment in Japan... My daughter spent a month in
Japan in 1988 undergoing treatment. She brought a supply of her treatment
back with, and her prescribed treatment is daily during alternate
months. She has CT scans monthly and so far has a good report and
according to the doctor the treatment is working. She looks good and
feels good, and for this we are extremely thankful. The treatment
may last for a period of five years or more. I want to personally
thank you for your report, as it was well done and was the reason
for our having her treated by some method other than a liver transplant."

information, particularly on Dr. M. in Japan, is the most interesting
and the one Betsey has chosen to follow. She and her husband, Larry,
plan to go to Japan next week and stay there for 30 days to undergo
Dr. M’s procedure. We all pray this will work.
point of this letter is – we would not have even known Dr. M.
existed if it had not been for you. We received research data from
three other organizations similar to yours, that in the interest of
public services and humanitarian issues, do research for specific
patients. Some of the reports were more voluminous than yours, but
none was more to the point and none approached the helpfulness of
have high hopes Dr. M's procedure will help Betsey significantly.
It is a tragedy this procedure is not available in the United States
and not even well known in the United States, even though it has been
available in Japan for almost 15 years. We should all work together
to do something about that." CB, Salem,
