    Decision Point (Although still functional, (I don't look sick),now in palliative care. Need to find warm ocean area to transfer too.): "New" tumor growth in liver now. From 2 to 10 centimeters in 3 months. More chemo, lesser doses, to try and buy time. More CBD's. Hospice involved (early?). I don't wish to leave family but I can't deal with Michigan winter! Need to get to warm mother ocean...to heal...or not.

      Check the laws for residency where you plan to go. The Internet has the laws for anything except a wild week end. You probably look sick, and you'd have lots of pills.
      They do not want dead bodies that they have to store. They are under Spanish Law, where they cannot cremate or bury an unclaimed body. In the past, many Americans went to Latin America to die from cancer. Nobody claims the bodies, and the government is stuck with the bodies. Belize still has about 95% of the bodies from the Jonestown mass suicide. I'd like to go to Uruguay, but I can't until I spend 5 years in remission, and then have a complete body scan that shows that my cancer is gone, and I don't have any secondary cancers. They'll just put you on a plane and send you right back.

      I went to Japan this spring to visit my USMC bro, who is married to a Japanese national. I had all sorts of hoops to jump through, less than for many South and Latin American countries. Most countries demand $10,000 put in a national bank, a monthly income of over a $1,000, health certificate- NO CANCER---etc.

      Check things out, maybe FLA or the Carolinas would be a better choice. PS. These countries also are strict with the English, as they have English cancer bodies in storage. England would send you right back, as the UK doesn't like American vets, and they've been doing that for over 15 years that I know of.

      First call the VA Hospital you usually go to, and the Social Worker should have answers to all your questions, and may pay the bill for you if you stay in the U.S. It's a national healthcare system, so I think they can arrange everything if you allow them to set it up with their approved vendors.

      I don't know anything about Medicaid, since it's done through each State.

      CDC use to have, supply travelers with a list of hospitals with descriptions, I was given a rather bleak scenario in October 2013 Stage IV met to liver and other areas and currently its a different story, off chemo and doing remarkably well!! I hope the same is some how possible for you!

      It isn't a big thing. It is a very little thing that has grown to big for its britches.

      I see you are involved with food, perhaps, because farm to table is somewhat meaningless anymore which, in my head, is a cause of a LOT of our woes.

      Tell your doctor he or she is a stingy false prophet. Anything the doc tells you in terms of your future is based on what he remembers of the past. Miracles happen every day. Discoveries are made. Accidents happen. Prophets are made into fools. I am, literally, half a dozen times past expiration dates given and 2/3rds as many times not crazy or depressed needing happy pills.

      You've not the time to play Hamlet. You need to research and learn and be proactive.




      http://www.etsy.com/shop/rawmaven <--I wrote a book about how I survived

      Look up Chaga mushroom extract, Egyptian black seed, guanabana, graviola, fermented mushrooms (AHCC, turkey tail), marijuana (oil and raw juice and extract) and and eating sprouts.
      There is also Essiac tea, juicing, and much much much more. There are other ways to skin the proverbial cat than to obey a doctor's dictum.

      I was 100% raw and living foodie until I got well. Now, I relaxed just a little. It took docs 13 years to give me a proper diagnosis. I took such good care of myself, the tumor wouldn't grow. I kept nagging the docs and they kept offering me happy pills and telling me they would not remove the teeny little wart, at least until it got to be financially viable for them.

      Learn about your vitamin needs. 10 to 1 you are low in Bs and C and D and minerals like magnesium. Almost everybody is because, at least in the West, society eats horribly. In the USA, our food is tainted.I know you think you are doing well but it is a well crafted lie.


      Get a grip, man. If you want to survive, you need to focus and concentrate. The docs told me I had a 40% shot with their treatment. I thought they were fools because I would not play poker where my odds were only 40% to win so why would I place my life in the hands of someone who could only offer me such odds? Why would you concern yourself with folks who have already admitted that they do not know how to help you? Smarter to search for someone and other things which actually might help you to cure yourself.

      There is a group on FB called "cannabis cure success stories". If you are on Facebook, ask to join it. You will be amazed and, hopefully, heartened. You can only rest & heal if you take action.

      Good luck and best wishes.

      Go to another doctor get a second and a third opinion. Find someone who is willing and encouraging to help you fight. There is so much out there that most doctors dont pay any attention to and those things are important and can change things for you. You need support and encouragement not negative doomsayers. Quit telling yourself that you have to live 20 years in a short amount of time, take care of your body listen to it, give it what it needs and you can get more time than what you are imagining.

      A GOOD doctor will not make fun of alternative methodology,


      A GOOD doctor will want to know about what works.
