The cancer diagnosis won’t kill me but Simon Harris and Kate O’ Connell’s proposed bill might. There I was happy living with a cancer diagnosis, minding my own business, looking for my cure to self-heal when Pat Kenny gives Kate O’Connell radio time to discuss her nasty bill.
I know some of you believe it is a bill to regulate alternative therapies, all I can say is look deeper.
It will take away your right as an Irish citizen to get alternative therapies in your own country for a cancer diagnosis, the only choice you will have is whatever the oncologist decides to prescribe.
If you want all choices available to you when faced with a cancer diagnosis please sign and share the petition. Team work makes the dream work.
Two weeks back I was on the verge of giving up. People had signed in front of me yet their signatures went out into space somewhere. I wrote to FB and Simon Harris, still no reply.
So please never give up, sign and share. Tell your friends, ask them to sign and share.
So,what inspired me to never give up, TREW FIELDS FESTIVAL
We need this in Ireland.
2 days and 3 nights of wonderful talks, workshops, great vegan food, organic drink, music, talent and dancing with people who had stage 1 to stage 4 various cancers. People who inspired me to keep on my chosen path and to never give up until that last breath.
2 nights in a tent with John and 2 sleeping bags only, my tumour earthed for the first time and I slept like a baby. The lashing rain failed to unearth us from our magical sleep.
There were cancer awareness talks on both days from 10am to 6pm alongside four different venues with a variety of holistic health workshops and classes. Full, full days.
What struck me was the positivity, what you think really does matter.

Inspired by the placebo effect, he left the industry to write books and educate people in how they can harness their mind and emotions to improve their health.
The Doctor Patients Panel with Dr. Lauren MacDonald, Dr.Lyanh Dang, and Dr. Robin Fawcett, Family doctor, mama, writer, speaker, nature-lover.
Navigating life and medicine after BRCA2+ cancer. Inspirational Doctor’s, all with great insights and advice to give.
Leah Bracknell From cancer victim to cancer rebel.
Fi Munro PhD Live like you are Dying.
Professor Robert Thomas Polyphenols-The Gifts from Nature. My hero for banning sugar from his oncology department.
Steve Ottersberg how to change your genes- Epigenetics, a little heavy for me, shame I forgot the pen and paper.
The awesome Dr. Nasha Winters, Treating the Terrain, not just the Tumour.
The Metabolic Approach to Cancer I could listen to this lady for hours.
So many workshops, talks and demonstrations and all for optimum, positive health. So many wonderful people all in it together for the health of mankind.
I found the rebounding and lymphatic drainage demo useful, now at least I know how to rebound correctly.
Nothing prepared me for the effect of the inspirational breathing, it took my breath away and I am definitely doing the training.
This festival is a life changing experience for anyone diagnosed with cancer. It brings hope and inspiration to try different treatments and leaves the door open to experiment with all therapies available. Just because if hasn’t been clinical tested doesn’t mean it won’t work. It will never be clinical tested unless it makes a profit for shareholders. The pharmaceutical industry has a lot of shareholders to keep happy and one needs to ask the question is it money driven or health driven?
In my eyes this Bill will achieve nothing only to hinder anyone who refuses chemotherapy, radiation and the chemicals offered to an already sick body.
So, to all my friends out there dealing with a cancer diagnosis stay positive and if you ever feel yourself getting down click on any of the links above to lift your spirits. Join as many cancer forums as you can and empower yourself.
