Pediatrician-mom refuses to give in to rare brain tumor


JENNY: WELCOME BACK. WELL, ABOUT SIX MONTHS AGO, A PORTLAND WOMAN RECEIVED SOME DEVASTATING NEWS. SHE HAD A BRAIN TUMOR, AND THERE IS NO CURE. SHE IS A PEDIATRICIAN AND A MOTHER OF TWO, AND SHE DECIDED THIS WAS NOT GOING TO BE THE END. IN TODAY’S POSITIVE VIBES, WE TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT SHE’S DOING TO HOPEFULLY FIND A CURE FOR HER AND FOR OTHERS. ALEX BUTLER IS A PEDIATRICIAN AND HER HUSBAND IS A SURGEON. WHILE THEY HAVE BEEN AROUND HOSPITALS MOST OF THEIR ADULT LIVES, 37 YEAR OLD ALEX NEVER THOUGHT SHE WOULD BE ON THE PATIENT SIDE FACING A DEADLY AND RARE BRAIN TUMOR. I WOKE UP WITH MY LEFT ARE MOVING UP IN THE AIR, AND IT WAS TOTALLY OUT OF MY CONTROL. JENNY: THAT WAS LATE APRIL. YEAH, IT IS MUCH SMALLER. IN LESS THAN SIX MONTHS LATER AND AFTER SEVERAL ROUNDS OF CHEMO, SHE HAS MET WITH HER DOCTORS NUMEROUS TIMES. HER TUMOR IS AN EXTREMELY RARE TYPE. JENNY: THE DOC TOR SAYS THE TUMOR IS VERY GENETICALLY DISTINCT AND THEY DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH RESEARCH ON IT BECAUSE IT IS SO INCREDIBLY RARE. THAT DID NOT SIT WELL WITH ALEX, A MOM OF TWO YOUNG KIDS. I AM VERY THANKFUL THAT THEY WERE ABLE TO TELL ME QUICKLY. I HAVE SOME TIME. JENNY: TIME TO FUND RAISE FOR RESEARCH SPECIFIC TO HER TUMOR BY USING A PLATFORM THAT IS PART OF A NEW MOVEMENT TO CONNECT PEOPLE DIRECTLY TO SPECIFIC MEDICAL RESEARCH PROJECTS. IN HER CASE, IT HAS CONNECTED HER WITH DONATIONS, AND HER GOAL IS TO RAISE $500,000. THE DOCTOR SAYS BECAUSE OF THE TUMOR SLOW-GROWING NATURE, THIS FUNDRAISING COULD ACTUALLY MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE. IT COULD ACTUALLY HAVE A VERY REAL IMPACT OVER THE NEXT DECADE OR TWO. JENNY: ALEX IS DETERMINED, AND A BIG PART OF HER MOTIVATION COMES FROM A SEVEN AND A FOUR-YEAR-OLD. WE ARE SUCH A HAPPY FAMILY, DOING SO MUCH TOGETHER THAT JUST THE THOUGHT OF NOT BEING THERE FOR THE KIDS AND MY HUSBAND, THERE IS NO, ACTUALLY, WAY TO DESCRIBE THE FEELING OF THAT. JENNY: WELL, IF YOU WANT TO HELP ALEX IN HER EFFORTS, WE HAVE A LINK TO HER FUNDRAISING PAGE ON CONSANO IN OUR ARTICLE ON KOIN.COM. IT IS SUCH A GREAT FAMILY. I AM HOPEFUL THAT SHE CAN RAISE THIS MONEY. CONSANO MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN SOME CASES BECAUSE THEY DO DEDICATE ALL THE MONEY TO THAT SPECIFIC CANCER THAT THE PERSON IS TRYING TO RAISE THE MONEY FOR FOR RESEARCH.

  1. Alex, This info comes from a Naturalpathic Dr. concerning Cancer in general. Parasites and fungus are the reasons that cancer exists. Monatomic Liquid gold, check it out It irradicates Cancer and all disease. Turpentine Oil kills fungus and the parasites.. Have a great life!

  2. You need to alkaline your body to a 7 so the cancer will not survive. Baking soda. Foods that alkaline your body.
