I am a 57 year old airline pilot and had been diagnosed with brain cancer in September of 2011. I had decided 25 years ago that if I ever was diagnosed with cancer I would not take chemotherapy or radiation, so after that first surgery I tried strengthening my body through various alternative therapies and diet. Although this has helped many people, it is not very effective with brain tumors. Additionally, 90% of people that are diagnosed with GBM die within a year, so time was against me. I had two craniotomies where they resected the tumor. It began growing very fast after the second surgery. The surgeon said he would not do another resection with it growing at that rate, and conventional oncology offered no hope, although that is all they had to recommend. That second surgery was performed in September of 2012.

I had read about Dr. Burzynski, seen the documentary, and decided to go to Houston in February of 2013. Six weeks after being on Dr. Burzynski’s protocol the tumor, which had grown back to the size of a lemon again, had disappeared. I have had MRI’s every two months since and there has been no recurrence.I was initially very disappointed that I would not be able to be treated with the IV anti-neoplastons due to FDA restrictions. My treatment was formulated around the genetic make-up of the tumor and was “gene-targeted”. I have had a “complete response” and am tumor free at this time. I feel great and carry on a normal lifestyle with no restrictive conditions, except that I won’t be flying again.

mary brittonOn February 26, 2006, I was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. I felt as if I was pushed off a tall building and began rapidly falling to the ground. It was “fly or die” time. It was then that I realized the true power of my inner survivor skills. I knew that there was no amount of money, nor any one person, that could help me now: this was between my Creator and myself.

And so began my journey. I began to fly. On this journey, I have expanded my faith and learned the meaning of hope, trust and patience. I have learned that life and living are not necessarily the same thing. When faced with an actual expiration date, having been told that I could die within a few years, I decided to focus on living. I learned to appreciate every breath as a privilege and a gift!

I had a biopsy done at Duke University because the tumor is virtually inoperable, and was offered a clinical trial with chemo. Instead, I chose a non-traditional treatment with Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski in Houston, Texas. I trust my sense of intuition and relied on it in this very important decision making process. I did not have a good feeling about the other alternative at Duke. I am so glad that I chose my treatment with Dr. Burzynski.

I had done lots of research on brain tumors and cancer.  I decided to focus on the positive outcomes people had.  I called as many cancer survivors as I could find and asked questions regarding their healing.  I put together a list of what I considered positive’s regarding their recovery, healing, survival…whether it be lifestyle changes, mantras, spiritual influence’s, treatment, etc.  I spoke with many patients who had received treatment from Dr. Burzynski as well.  I made my decision based on my research AND my intuition.  I was going to Houston!

I immediately felt a connection with Dr. Burzynski and respected his lifelong dedicated journey in cancer research.  I decided to accept his treatment as my cure and my success…I was going to live.  I said a prayer into my meds every time and visualized my healing.  I believed in what I had chosen… the path I took.  This is a very important part of healing.

I have responded beautifully to the treatment and am very happy and healthy today…8 years later.  I have made many lifestyle changes, and have done my due diligence in participating in my healing.  I choose to live a day at a time and the same goes for my health and healing.  It is ongoing and I am one grateful person.  I credit Dr. Burzynski and his brilliant research, and perseverance in his practice to truly help those live and live longer.-

I encourage everyone to speak with as many people who have had a positive experience with their healing journey.  I can be reached at
