Sue was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer in October 23th 1997. 

Devastating is an understatement! 

Were we surprised.... we had smoked over 60 years between us so I guess it wasn't totally a surprise!


Smoking Is For Suckers!

If YOU are reading this and you smoke.... stop, cease, desist! Don't be stupid! We had been warned, science has told us, common sense dictates putting smoke into our bodies is NOT natural.

The Simonton Center

Dr. Carl Simonton We have taken drastic steps to change our lives.  In January '98 we attended Dr. Simonton's cancer retreat in Santa Barbara . Dr. Simonton's cancer retreat evolved from the concept that beliefs, feelings, attitudes and lifestyle are important factors affecting health. The program is a 5-day educational and psychotherapeutic session for cancer patients and their support person, during which these concepts are explored in a safe, supportive atmosphere conducive to learning and a positive change. Attitude is everything!!!

The program focuses on the influence of beliefs and belief systems.  It starts on a Sunday afternoon and end the next Friday at noon.  He takes only a maximum of 10 patients at each session along with each persons "support person", who is a spouse, family member or close friend.  Living quarters are spartan without TV (no great loss!!), radio or phones.  Meals are simple but nutritious.  The sessions are intense.  It is something very worthwhile for anyone fighting cancer. Attitude is everything!!!

To get a better understanding of the power of meditation and imagery, we suggest reading "Getting Well Again" by O.Carl Simonton, MD. Look at on the Internet for additional information!
