Dear Dr Chris,
My name is R and I am from Singapore.
My father was diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma stage 2/3 in 2012 after a lump was found on his back. An operation was performed to cut away the lump. After the operation, my father underwent radiation therapy with no chemo. In early 2014, the cancer has recurred and metastasize to several locations in his body. With each chemo treatment for the stage 4 cancer, my father has grown weaker and his blood count deteriorate. Recently, my father has jaundice and complained of stomach aches and after scans, doctor has suspected that there are lumps which are pressing against the liver bile duct. Last month, my father underwent a procedure to place a stent in his bile duct to ease the flow of bile. Despite a brief period of improvement, a latest blood test revealed that the bile level is increasing. We have rejected doctor’s recommendation to chemo as my father is very weak at the moment.
At this juncture, we have decided to opt for herbal treatment. I have read about your good self and your very informative website. You have offered hope and a listening year to countless others and I do sincerely appreciate your tireless efforts to help those in need. I would like to take you away from your busy schedule to obtain insights and advice from your good self on how to ease my father’s suffering. I am very keen to visit you to seek your advice and opinion. Unfortunately, my father is quite weak at the moment to make the travel. However, my sister and I would be very appreciative if we could come to visit you with all the scans and medical report. Thank you good Sir. Yours in need.
Reply: You are welcome to come and see me with all the reports and scans — BUT let me tell you honestly — it is too late and too advanced. Even if you come and see me, what can I do — there is NO magic bullet. Doctors have failed and you expect herbs to be the hero? Not logical at all. I don’t want to disappoint you but I have to be honest. So don’t be misled.
