SF had already spent around RM 150,000 for her treatment. She said her financial reserve was running low. My advice: You should not continue with your medical treatments if you have run out of funds. It does not make sense to give up half way through the treatment due to lack of funds. Think carefully.
C: We are here not just to sell our herbs. We want to help people. We want to open their minds to new possibilities. We want them to think for themselves and not led by the nose — jumping into a bottomless pit and at the same time leaving a big hole in your bank account.
So let me ask you this — what do you hope to get from rounds and rounds of treatment. I guess you want a cure, right? Unfortunately, from what I read and know, there is no cure for cancer. So first, understand that there is no cure for your cancer. Second, these treatments are going to bring you more sufferings. Third, you will have to spend a lot more money.
So Ibu (mama) even if you undergo another round of treatments, I don’t see how you are going to be able to solve your problem. After the radiation and chemo, you needed an operation if the tumour shrinks. If the tumour does not shrink, you will go for more and more chemo. So your journey does not end yet. It may just be the beginning of another long journey. Please think carefully.
Many Indonesians who came to see me underwent medical treatments without asking any question or much thinking. After undergoing the treatment half-way, they said: I have no more money. So I don’t want to continue with the treatment. My response was: Why are you so dumb. If you don’t have enough money to go through the entire course of treatment, why did you ever start with the treatment in the first place?
There was this 35-year-old lady from Palembang. She had breast cancer and underwent a mastectomy. After the operation, she was asked to undergo chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and be on oral medication. The total cost of these treatments came to about RM200,000. I asked her: Do you have money to pay for this treatment? Her reply, No.
Yes, I understand a 35-year-old cannot be expected to have RM200,000 in her bank account. So even if she wanted to undergo the recommended treatment, she could not. So, I said to her, It’s okay. No need to do the treatments. There is no point undergoing the treatment half-way and then stop!
Did you understand what I am trying to tell you?
P: I understand.
C:. This is one important point I want you to consider now. In the next 2 days you need to go for chemo. You were told you needed 3 cycles initially. Okay, how much will that cost? Then calculate the cost of your stay in Malaysia. After that you need to go for an operation. What is the cost of that surgery?
Husband: RM 25,000 for the surgery alone.
C: Okay, RM 25,000 plus 3 x RM4,000 for the chemo and previously RM6,700 for the radiation. After the surgery you may need more chemo, and more chemo. Consider all these costs. I don’t know about your financial status. So you need to make a decision after careful consideration.
Is the chemo and surgery going to cure you or bring your more sufferings?
P: I don’t want any more chemo or surgery. I only want you to help me. The doctor said he would remove my right kidney together with the ureter (tube that carries the urine from the kidney to the bladder).
C: What is going to happen to you after that? They will fix a tube. And one kidney gone. Do you really want to undergo such treatment?
P: At first I didn’t want.
C: What is the purpose of removing these? Think first! One important question to ask. Will the doctor be able to remove all the cancer inside you? And after the operation it is all clean and the cancer would not come back again? Can surgery do that? What happen if after the surgery the cancer becomes more aggressive and spreads more widely.
Learn from nature — for example the ant’s nest. What happen if you take a parang and cut the nest into two? What if you leave the nest undisturbed?
P: All the ants will spread out.
C: I am not an expert in cancer but I use my head to think. And I also want you to think properly. Now, after you have just received 3 sessions of radiation, you had diarrhea. That bothered you a lot. You have not even started with your third rounds of chemo yet. You have already had 12 cycles of chemo and I don’t know what can happen to you if you have more chemo. You may end up dead? Again, if the tumour does not shrink this time around, you will need more and more chemo. When will that end?
Do you understand what I am trying to tell you?
P: Before this, I don’t understand. I just accept what I was told to do. I don’t know that there is another way out.
C: No, there is NO way out of this.
P: I know. Everything is in God’s hand.
By all means, sell your house or land to pay for the medical bills if the treatment is going to cure you!
C: There is this young man who came to see me. His mother had lung cancer and had gone to China with a few of her friends for treatment. After the first trip to China, the mother ran out of money. She wanted to sell her house in which 5 of her children were living in. The son came to seek my advice. My answer: If you sell the house and your mother is cured, that’s okay. Worth the gamble. But what happen after all the treatments — money gone, and she is not cured? House gone, mother dead? And the children left out in the street without a home to go to.
My advice was not to go to China for the treatment anymore. She survived 3 years after following our therapy. She had a normal life and was able to help her son in his motor-bike repair shop. Her friends who had money and continued with their treatments in China were ALL dead.
I have no magic potion for your cancer
C: I want you to think carefully. If I just want to sell you my herbs, I would have asked you to buy all that you need and go away. Why talk so much and so long? But the mission of CA Care is to help others. That is why I want you to go home and think carefully first. There is no need to take the herbs now. Why? Because in two days time you want to start with your chemo. Go and do your chemo first.
Our herbs are no magic potion. Healing cancer takes more than just drinking herbs. Cancer is about human being — the need to change your attitude, life style and diet. I am not asking you not to go for chemo. I just want you to give a careful thought to what I have said.
Husband: You have opened our minds. I begin to understand what is happening now.
P: I did not understand all these before.
