Hi all! My name is Dirk John Jansema, and I was diagnosed with stage 4 Mesothelioma. I am 61 years young and before my lung was infected with this disease I could hike for miles and ride my bicycle for hours. I worked on industrial construction for 30 years in pulp mills, shipyards, oil patch, and power generation stations. Most all the jobs were infested with Asbestos but we were never told it was dangerous until the late 1980s.

I was working with a crew of great guys on a refinery in Alberta--then one day I felt sick with a cough and heaviness in my chest--I took some cough syrup and aspirin and continued to work until my breathing was so affected that climbing stairs was an insurmountable task. I went to a local clinic and was told to go to the hospital and get an x-ray. It confirmed liquid in my lung sack between the pleura. I was admitted.

The process here in Canada is a slow one to get proper medical attention from the right doctor. I would have to wait 4 to 6 weeks to see a thorasic surgeon to determine if a biopsy of my lung was necessary to diagnose my problem. I was going in for a Drain/Tap--of my chest cavity every 10 days on the average--1200 to 1600 cc of red watery substance came out of me.

I have had a Great life and have been married twice and now again after 20 years of being single. I met a wonderful woman from Pa.USA on a Christian Web Site. Over five years we courted and were married 2 years ago. After I was informed that I have Meso and that it would take 4 to 6 weeks to see a Canadian Doctor -- I called my wife in Pa. and my sister in Seattle to see if I could be admitted earlier in the USA. I was told I could be in the operating room in a week--and I was.

I was in Holy Spirit Hospital in Harrisburg Pa.for 2 weeks and returned home to my wife's house to recoup.

The Thoracotomy and the Pluradisis that was performed left a 8 inch scar under my right arm and 2 drain tube holes as well. The Biopsy that was performed revealed that the Cancer cells were not treatable by ChemoTherapy or Radiation. (I had NO desire to have these treatments anyway).

My Wonderful sister found a web site and Cancer treatment called the Bill Henderson Protocall-- THIS IS A DIET!!! The web site is called CANCER TUTOR dot COM. Please check on-line for yourself as it is to extensive to explain here.

Simply put a diet of Cottage cheese and Flax oil with some Vitamin pills control my Cancer. The only adverse reaction to the diet was a rash that lasted a 12 t0 14 days and was intense to the touch.

Bill Henderson has written a book called Cancer-Free (Your Guide to Gentle, Non-Toxic Healing).

I WOULD-- AT THIS TIME LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT ONLY GOD IS IN CONTROL AND HE HAS THE POWER TO HEAL!!!! Your part in this is to have a positive attitude and due diligence to stick to this protocol.

I have given you some HOMEWORK to do if you wish to continue following my Blog Please do so.

In solidarity,
Dirk John
