Hindi ko binigyan ng pansin ang Boston-C na ipinayo ng aking kapatid mula sa Pilipinas. Pinili ko ang magpa-opera, chemo at radiation dahil sa aking palagay ito ang makakagamot sa aking cancer sa bituka. Nagpagamot ako sa isang sikat na ospital dito sa Hongkong, magagaling ang mga Doctor dito kahit mahal pa ang gastos. Maraming mayayamang Pilipino, mga artista, pulitiko at negosyante na may cancer ang kasama ko na nagpapagamot, masaya kaming lahat. Puring- puri namin ang mga doctor, dekalidad talaga sila, ang ospital kilala sa buong daigdig. Walang dahilan para hindi ako gagaling. Halos 3 million peso ang nagastos ko, dibali na wika ko, mababawi ko rin kung ako ay magaling na.
Natapos ang 6 na buwan na gamutan umuwi na sa pilipinas ang mga kasama ko na may cancer. Magaling na daw sila. Ako man, ayon sa aking Doctor kaya tuwang tuwa ang aking pamilya sa Pilipinas. Nalimutan ko na ang tungkol sa Boston-C.
Lumipas ang dalawang taon, dinugo ako at matindi ang kirot sa tiyan. Dumating na ang kinatatakutan ko bumalik ang cancer. May bukol na tumubo sa aking bituka. Metastatic colorectal cancer. Marami pang bukol sa pelvic area at mayroon na sa atay at baga ko, dito po ako nakadama ng pagkatakot. Pinagsabay ang chemo at radiation lalo lang lumala ang cancer ko naging 4000 na ang CA level. Advance stage na daw ang cancer ko, tinaningan ako ng 9 na buwan, balak ko na magpagamot sa USA pero wala daw gamot sa Hongkong or sa USA, parehas din daw ang paraan ng gamutan sa Hongkong at Amerika. Saan ako magpapagamot?, tanong ko sa aking Doctor, umiling sya at nagwika. No cure na daw! Wala palang bisa ang operasyon chemo at radiation. Palliative lang daw ang mga ito. Naalala ko ang mga Pilipino na kasabay ko na nagpagamot, balita ko patay na silang lahat. Umuwi ako ng Pilipinas, nagpunta ako sa PGH, operasyon din ang alok sa akin. Bumalik muli ako sa Hongkong mas advance ang gamutan sa Hongkong. Nag-chemo at radiation ulit ako. Nanganib ang aking buong katawan halos macomatose ako. Nag-quit na ako. Dun ko naalala ang Boston-C, bagamat duda ako na nakakagaling, nagbakasakali ako dahil recommended ito ng kapatid ko 20 days akong uminom ng katoni herbs lumakas ako. Para makatiyak ako kung nakakagaling ang katoni herbs, nagpa-CT scan ako. Ayon sa doctor nawala lahat ng bukol ko sa aking tiyan. Boston-C lang pala ang makakagamot sa cancer ko!
I HAD BEEN DIAGNOSED with colon cancer in April 2005 (30 cm. of my ascending colon was later removed). I completed a ten-cycle adjuvant chemotherapy in Hong Kong, since alternative treatment( including herbal medicines was not an option that time due to my lack of knowledge and research on the cancer and the cures for the that time due to my lack of knowledge and research on the cancer and the cures for the Big C. Although my sister had introduced me to an herbal medicine for cancer-Boston C through clippings form a newspaper. I ignored it and just considered the conventional way of treating cancer, which is chemotherapy. It was not easy as I had though. I suffered a lot because of the side effects: my skin palms, and feet were burned, and I lost all my toenails. By the grace of God, I had been in remission for more than a year, until I felt sign of recurrence in late 2007. I had a regular check up and blood screening (tumor marker test) in Hong Kong. In early 2008, a CT scan confirmed my worst worries that my cancer had recurred and it was already on stage IV (metastatic colorectal cancer.)
The doctors in Hong Kong suggested a combined radiotherapy-chemotherapy treatment to reduce the size of the tumor for possible surgical procedures. I opted to have a second opinion in the Philippines, where the same was suggested by the doctors at the Philippine General Hospital. I decided to pursue my treatment back in Hong Kong.
However, a PET scan in Hong Kong revealed that my lungs had also been affected. Therefore, radiotherapy was no longer applicable. Instead, a combined radiotherapy-chemotherapy was suggested. The oncologist gave me a nine-to-ten month survival rate (for the six-cycle treatment). I began the treatment on 25 June 2008, with a combined XELODA (oral 5-FU) + IRINOTECAN (though IV): supposedly three week/ cycle chemotherapy treatment. After the third cycle of my treatment (almost three months), a follow up CT scan and blood test were done. They showed that my tumor had shrank to 3.5 cm (from 5.8-the largest), and my CEA (tumor marker level) was 8.5 ng/ml (normal level: 0-5 ng/ml). Due to the severity of the side effects, I decided to quit it and continue my treatment in the Philippines, using alternative means (herbal medicine and divine intervention). Using the herbal food elements that I have researched on the internet and my faith in God’s healing power. I have pursued and will continue to pursue my plan for the alternative treatments. Moreover, the support and prayers of my relatives and friends form the four corners of the world have given me courage and determination to fight for dear life.
On 30 August 2008, we returned to the Philippines, and went straight (from the NAIA Terminal 3) to the Boston-C Clinic to personally talk with Mr. Antonio R. Agustin (the inventor of the Boston-C herbal products). He suggested that I should have the ten-day Fast-tract Treatment. But since I have faith that God will help me, I have opted to use just the KATONI herbs and the CYETON-S, with the back -up action of other food supplements which I have acquired abroad.
Like Boss Tony always said, put your faith in God. Pray and believe that the treatment you are using will help you and cure your sickness. So every time I drink Boston-C and other food supplements, I pray to God that He will help me, and heal my cancer.
On 26 September 2008, after almost a month of alternative treatments, I had my CT scan and blood test to know the effectiveness of those treatments, and got the answers to our prayers. Through the mercy and by the grace of God, a virtual miracle has happened. All my tumors and lymph nodes were clean and clear, and my CEA Level had now gone down to 4.1 ng/ml. (a normal level).
Praise is to God! Glory to God! I have been healed!
Now, I am flying back to Hong Kong, and will bring with me the faith and trust that God will continue to heal me. I will also bring with me the herbal food supplements I have been taking, including the Boston-C herbal products.
Thank you and God be with you always.
