How I recovered from brain cancer and came out the other side healed

I am a cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with a serious form of brain cancer a couple of years back and was told I had six weeks to live if I were being optimistic.

This could be the most important blog post I have ever written.

Here I am writing down all the things I did to recover from cancer.  I get asked about what I did to recover from cancer almost every week, so here I am writing it all down for everyone who wants to know.  I healed and it was against all predictions from medics and doctors.

This news came sideways for me. I didn’t see it coming.  It was only when I began to notice things like I couldn’t remember where in town I had parked my car and then went to meet my neighbour for coffee in our regular café in our village but couldn’t remember how to get there that others notice something was wrong.  I showed up an hour late to meet my friend when we both left our houses next to each other at the same time.  

This woman, my neighbour and friend, Liliana Todorovic saved my life when she sensed all was not right with me and made me take action. 

She noticed I was behaving oddly and took me off to see our local practitioner who is a leading bio-resonance practitioner, Birgit, on the island of Ibiza where I live. 

Birgit tested me and said I needed to get to the hospital right away. I didn’t want to go but Lily insisted.  For those of you who know Lily, you will know that she is a very persuasive person. She put me in the car without any preamble and before I could think about it, she had me entering into our local main hospital. She drove me straight into A&E to go get me checked out. 

Thanks to the fantastic medical staff there, I quickly had tests and an MRI brain scan. Quickly they found a humongous tumour living with me in my head. My prognosis for living did not look good. My brothers and nearest and dearest were told to get on a flight immediately to come and see me. 

I was as surprised as anyone by this happening to me.  I am a mother of a son and it was not my time to die. I had things to do, places to be and books still to write.  I decided I was going to fight this diagnosis and survive. I trusted my instincts and I was the only one who knew I was going to get out of this alive. 

I have spent years investigating ways to power up the mind and use the inner life force to create the impossible.  I made it through. 

To cut a very long story, short, I am asked regularly about what I did to get better.
