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 brandon4jesus@gmail.com.  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

Margaret Manning

Margaret PhotoMy name is Margaret Manning, age 57, and reside in Mesa, Arizona.  I enjoy being a wife and mother of 6 children.  My husband and I have 20 wonderful grandchildren as well.

In March of 2009, I was diagnosed with Mantle cell non- Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer. What a shock!  I was always the healthy one who was able to serve others!  Suddenly my life took an interesting twist.  My oncologist told me that I might live three years if I did the strongest chemotherapy in the hospital as well as bone marrow transplant twice!  I was in the beginning of the 4th stage of a terminal cancer.

After much study and prayer, my husband and I decided that we were not going to go the traditional way which included chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant, as it didn’t work for this particular form of cancer. We were guided to the Burzynski Clinic in Houston, Texas.  So, I began the targeted gene therapy and began taking Sodium Phenulbruterate as well as other forms of medication.  Each CT/Pet scan showed that the tumors were either shrinking or disappearing altogether.  I was in remission by August 2010. My Oncologist here in Arizona has been amazed at my recovery and tells me it was a miracle. He was happy to work with Dr. Burzynski and ordered the blood work and other medical needs that were necessary.

My experience at the Burzynski Clinic was nothing but positive.  They are professional, and even better, the targeted gene therapy works.  My friends and neighbors were very supportive of my treatment and are happy to know that if they come down with cancer that they have an alternative to the medical care that is currently offered.  I hope that anyone that would like to speak to me would feel free to call at 480-834-9515 or 480-643-0358.  You can also email me at  musicmanning@gmail.com
