IMG_0926Months, if not Weeks

My name is Brandon English, and I am a Burzynski survivor!  After being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (B-cell follicular) in January of 2006, “months, if not weeks” was what the doctors here in Georgia suggested I was down to if I didn’t immediately proceed with another bone marrow transplant.  This was following my having gone through the ‘Standard of Care protocol’ for NHL (including chemotherapy, radiation, and an autologous bone marrow transplant already).   Though I was a strong and youthful mid-thirties kinda-guy, the effects of the prior treatments had really weakened my body.  I felt like there had to be something better out there, given that the reports were showing a progression of disease inside my body.

Having researched for a while, many different “outside the box” treatment options, my wife and I were prayerful that we might find something treatment wise that would not further push down my already weakened immune system.  Thankfully, we were led to Dr. Burzynski in Houston and were able to “plug in.”  From the outset of our visit, we were encouraged that there was hope and that things could get better!  Though a step of faith to begin treatment here (especially considering the lack of insurance coverage), we were pleasantly surprised upon obtaining my follow-up PET scan results, showing things to have gotten “better.”  With only the ordered PB tablets and a low-dose chemotherapy pill, I was not just living; I was living as “normally” as the guy who has never been with disease; And this has been the case ever since!!!

Suffice it to say, nearly 5 years out, my decision to plug into the Burzynski clinic for treatment has been a helpful one.  -A potential lifesaver!  I am still teaching elementary PE here in Georgia, working out, and generally living the dream of being a daddy to 2 beautiful kids.  Though it’s a bothersome thing to have periodic scans and to deal with the here and there demands of “keeping up,” I am blessed exponentially!!!   Be it that we had listened to the naysayers, we never would have gotten on board with Dr. Burzynski and likely would have a very different outcome now from that which I speak.

I am a regular guy who knows what it feels like to have questions.  Walking in the shadows of medical decision-making is not easy place to be.  Though my life seems a blur and time is short, please feel free to reach me if there are specific things I might help with related to my circumstance, or if you have additional questions about the clinic.  -My e-mail contact information is  I know there are a lot of conflicting things being written about the efforts of the Burzynski clinic and I will be more than happy to set the record straight [from the perspective of someone who might not be here were it not for it's doing what it does].

Blessings to you,

Brandon English
