“Our amazing cancer journey”
Our story begins on the 3rd of February, when my partner Bobby was diagnosed with “curable” throat cancer. Although our world was shattered, we tried to concentrate on the word “CURABLE”, but, being honest, negativity, anger, and “Why us???” set in.
Within a week our world fell totally apart when lung cancer was diagnosed, and the diagnosis was changed to terminal. After a few days of tears and fears I picked up a book I had bought months before and had been too busy to read. Yeah, you guessed it, “THE SECRET”. I read it through the night and immediately started to change my outlook. The very next day while in my local grocery store I saw “The Secret Daily Teachings.” It was right there in front of me and probably had been every day for weeks, but that day I was meant to see it. A thought for each day. That was just what we needed to get through this terrible journey.
We decided that the next day would be a day when we would only hear good news, and that is exactly what happened. We were told of a new form of chemo which although not a lifesaver would prolong Bob’s life and perhaps give him some good quality. We took this and decided that we would improve on this diagnosis. The treatment was tough, and on day 18 Bobby decided he’d had enough.
Day 18 (!!!!!!) of The Secret Daily Teachings was more than just a teaching – it was the start of our MIRACLE. I will not quote the whole teaching but just this part: “Allow the doctors to do their work, and keep your mind focused on well-being.” Bobby read it with tears in his eyes and hope in his heart, and continued with some very tough treatment until after over three months the doctors suggested another P.E.T scan.
On Thursday the 11th of June we met with our consultant and immediately knew when we saw him that we were in for some good news. But even we were not prepared for what he said: “The cancer in your lungs is GONE!!!!” He himself said that the doctors had held a meeting that morning and couldn’t understand how it had disappeared completely. They rechecked the biopsy and all he could say was that they were amazed, delighted, and pretty sure that the cancer in the lungs won’t come back.
We have now been allowed a two week break to go to our holiday home in Spain, and then treatment will start on the neck, but we have been told that there’s a very good chance that it will be cured completely.
When we started reading the Daily Teachings I put a date in my diary of June 20th as the day we would fly to Spain, and I never wavered from that. So guess what date we’re flying out?
Everything about our journey has been so positive, from the people we have met and become friends with to the people we have helped with our positivity. I have gifted Daily Teachings to quite a few cancer sufferers, and they have all been greatly touched by it.
I can honestly say, “We are at the perfect place in our perfect journey and are right where we were meant to be.” Thank you so much for coming into our lives and helping us through this incredible journey. It’s not over yet!
All our love, Marie and Bobby
