Geraldine Barkman (Stage IV Lung Cancer)

gerryMy mother had stage 4 lung cancer. This was shocking as my mother is a non smoker. It was located in one of her lungs, her spine and her thyroid. She was diagnosed at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN in August 2010. During that time my two sisters and I researched how we might help my mother. Mayo was not very encouraging, Johns Hopkins was not much better. We all knew that traditional treatment did not hold much hope for her condition.

Through internet searches I found The Burzynski Clinic and shared it with my family. We decided to take our mother there to see what they could do. Within seven months my mother’s tumors were gone. Today my mother is still cancer free and living an active life. We are both amazed and grateful for every minute we have with our mother. No one would ever guess what she was facing a few short years ago.
