Cancer in Keramas

All of us Bali kids have enjoyed Keramas many a time, I'm sure you've all hung out at the warung and met Gusde, and maybe his wife Dayu too. Dayu has recently been diagnosed with a nasopharyngeal cancer. She has a malignant grown on top of the soft palate in her mouth at the base of her skull.

Her type of cancer spreads rapidly, so treatment needs to begin ASAP. Medically, she will go down the radiotherapy route, as this type of cancer responds well to radiotherapy if acted on QUICKLY. However, there is only one radiotherapy machine in Bali, and there is a long queue for it.

She cannot begin treatment for two months.

Currently another option is being weighed up: whether she should be taken to Jakarta to undergo radiotherapy there, however, this will cause a huge burden on the family along with massive emotional stress.

So at the moment, the plan is to try and help her jump the queue to do radio at Sanglah, and if not, she will have to wait a couple months.

We've had some amazing people step forward and offer to help cover the cost of her medical treatment. However, I would love to help her with Complementary and Alternative Medicine too.

I've set up this page so that I can support her with naturopathic medicines (herbal medicine, nutritional medicine, injectable/IV nutrients):

1. We know this is a fast spreading cancer and waiting two months before radio is risky. We can support her with herbal and nutritional medicine in the meantime to keep her immune system as strong as it can possibly be.

2. Stress can be a massive factor here, natural medicine (particularly herbal + flower essences) can really help her and the family cope with the acute stress of this situation.

3. There are side effects with ALL conventional cancer treatments. Natural medicines can significantly reduce these and can be a great adjuvant therapy to radio.

4. When dealing with cancer, we want nothing more than to hear that the person is in remission. After radio, I want to be able to support her as much as possible with herbal medicine and nutritional medicine, to ensure she has a healthy functioning immune system and OPTIMAL overall health.

5. Ideally I want to be able to provide her with the best herbal and nutritional support for the next 5 years (or as long as possible), budgeting around $1800/year or $150/month.

6. I've made a fundraising account through paypal, I will not be ripping you off or doing anything dodgy with your money.

7. Please be generous and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions! :)

Much love,

Kimmy xx
