Home from Burzynski Clinic

Yesterday we returned home from the Burzynski Clinic in Houston Texas. We had a good trip

and found great results with my health. My daughter Maria and her 5 year old son, Tate, and I

flew out together and stayed at the CandleWood Hotel. Tate was so fun to have along and was

very well behaved. Because of his eagerness to learn and exciting personality, he delighted

everyone we met and added much to our trip. Maria was very helpful as usual and drove the

freeways like a pro. She helped in many ways and was great company.

We met with my 3 doctors in a large consultation room on the 2nd floor. Dr. Burzynski, Dr.

Kubove, and Dr. Weaver were all there together to discuss my health. Basically, my gene

marker test is normal and my Pet/Ct scan results were very good. The skull base and neck is

normal. The chest is continuing to improve. I have one node that is on the right chest area that

is slightly larger than normal but smaller that the last pet scan findings. The abdomen is clear,

the pelvis is as well. Dr. Burzynski said that I am in partial remission. I am 95% better but

must stay on the medications until at least my next 3 month visit. They want to make sure that

the cancer completely leaves and doesn't come back.

Next, we met with the radiologist and he compared several of my ct/pet scans.

It's amazing to see the difference. My body was covered with enlarged active

cancerous glands back in March of 2009, and now 10 months later, I am almost completely

well. What a miracle. Dr. Kline, the radiologist said that about 45%-50% of the patients get all

the way better. I am part of that percentage. Also, my gene marker test came back normal.

Yeah! So, I am doing really good. The Burzynski Clinic is one of my favorite places to be. It is

booming with activity, as they are very busy. People fly in from all over the world and are

getting great results. Most of these people are those that have not been given any hope from

traditional medicine and are given up to die. The feeling in the clinic is one of great hope and

love and the staff is happy, upbeat and very energetic. They are some of the most

knowledgeable doctors and nurses that I have met. So, I enjoyed my visit very much and am

very happy with my progress. I will be staying on the same medicine until told otherwise,

and will continue to follow what the doctor tells me to do. Life is wonderful. God is working a

miracle and I have a big smile on my face!


  1. So glad to hear you are doing so well. Now to just get it completely gone!! Keep the positive attitude, that does wonders. Love you!

  2. Hip hip hooray!! What an inspiring story! I've told so many people about you and your health blog. I'm sure you have inspired more people than you even know about. Thanks for posting your story!

  3. Congratulations! I too am a Burzynski patient, and I too am having good results so far. I am fighting metastatic breast cancer. My next PET/CT is end of Feb 2010, so I am on pins and needles right now. Fortunately, I live in Spring, Texas - right outside of North Houston - so my interaction with the clinic is much easier.

    I have been following your blog for a while now, and did post about you on my blog:

    I emailed Maria and asked for some info on the golfing fundraiser that y'all put together, but never got a reply. I need to do my own fundraisers, so I would Really Appreciate any info y'all would share.

    With Faith and Hope,
    Surviving breast cancer...
