I am so very proud, grateful and overwhelmed with joy to post that my Daughter, Dana Miles Frost, aka www.stealingyourthunder.blogspot.com yesterday received her third PET Scan of which we have a DVD copy which shows zero SUV and ZERO metastatic disease!! I could not stop crying with joy and relief yesterday and could not post (lest I steal her thunder) until this morning. We spent yesterday evening celebrating and buying her a suitcase so she can finally return home to Brad and Dune later this week.
Dana has been in Arizona for 8 weeks and has faced this part of her journey with courage and grace and I am so very proud of her. She will be here this next week to detox from the last round of IPT and the PET Scan which injects radioactive glucouse throughout her bloodstream. She will continue to have IV vitamin C, colonics, acupuncture, infrared sauna, structural integration, raw vegan food prep class and I hope yoga and meditation.
Dana is successfully completing her first and second phases of this journey.
The first phase (which I did not blog about) were the two months of shock and pain of diagnosing her disease, researching and deciding on treatment options. I want to personally thank again Sue Ansari, Liz Jackson, Sharon Smith, Chris Kraft and Dr. David Duhamel, Joda Coolidge, Lois Pozesky, Candace Campbell, Barb & Art Behrman, Linda Hill, my sisters Denise, Debi and Cristin and my husband Doug, My Mother, Dana’s other mother Marsie and husband Brad, my Aunt Joanne, Susan Abraham and all of my dear study buddies at Institute of Integrated Nutrition, Katie Horan, Heather Maurer Raskin, Martha and the rest of our fellow travelers group and everyone else who so helped to guide us on this journey. Without your support we clearly would not be where we are today and we are so very very grateful.
The second phase is to get rid of the tumor, which Dana has done in less time and much less damage to Dana than it would have taken with conventional medicine. Thank you Gretchen, Lyle and Jordan Hogg, Brad, Margo, and all of our friends, family and neighbors for your unbelievable support and prayers.
The third phase of her treatment, which is the most crucial and 100% up to Dana, is to keep the cancer from returning. We will finalize her aftercare this week. But Dana will continue to be in recovery and treatment at home in Detroit and her lifestyle choices are critical to her ongoing success, health and wellbeing. I’ve always witnessed those actively in a recovery program as being “better than well”. She will not be a survivor but instead has learned how to become a THRIVER!
Carpe Diem & Namaste!
