12 Months and Still Fighting

Update on Ren’s condition.

For those that have been following this blog will know that Ren has a will that is not surpassed by many. He was always extremely determined (some would call it stubborn) to achieve any goal he set himself to. Beating his little mutants is what he is still fully determined to do.

For Ren’s 45th birthday I flew over to surprise him, instead it was me that was surprised as to his physical deterioration. As I wished him a happy birthday, he asked for my help to get him admitted to hospital, as the pain was too taking its toll. The worst part was when he said “I can’t concentrate” and I could see that his mind was barely able to function, with all the toxins not being flushed out by his no-longer operational liver and kidneys.

Once admitted to hospital and after some blood works the dire news was given to us that Ren had hours/days/weeks to live. But then again what do doctors know anyway, he’s been told worse already and still fighting.

After months of searching for Methyl Jasmonate we finally were able to source some and I brought it with me. 3ml in a steam inhaler was administered yesterday. I am sure that Ren would have wanted to get tests before and after but with his condition, there was just no time to waste.

Methyl Jasmonate based on our research is a totally non toxic to normal cells, but really goes after and kills cancer cells. Since MeJA is volatile and a fragrance by definition, it can not be consumed orally but can be with the use of personal steam inhalers be introduced into the lungs. Recommended dosages from what we could determine was 3 mls and 5 times per month. I just wish we could have started this a lot sooner, but sourcing methyl jasmonate was much harder than we anticipated.

Yesterday was also a huge milestone, its been 12 months since he was 1st diagnosed with cancer, with the doctors there giving him 2 months or so to live. And still fighting.

Well done Ren, keep fighting!

About Ren

I have been diagnosed with stage 4, metastatic colorectal cancer in October 2012, 3 days after my 44th birthday. There is no cure, but I am determined to go down the road less travelled to find one. I have setup this blog to document my journey and hopefully help others in the process. My view is that if there is a cure, it does not lie with traditional chemo, but with the immune system. Time will tell.

    Hey Dave, sorry to hear about Ren, he really is hardcore! I think the MJ idea came from me, giving it to my son, hope it can help pull him round.

    Hello Dave, I am glad that you are there to support Ren in his time of need. Ren’s chronicles of his odessey, presented here, at CSN and at Colonchat, are an inspiration for all. Ren’s story is a classic of mind and man, wit and grit against a fearsome and overwhelming enemy. Thank you, Dave, for carrying the torch forward at this critical juncture. Thank you, ren, for sharing your time and insights with us.
