LIVESTRONG.org (Lance Armstrong Foundation): #3 Expert-Identified Nonprofit for Cancer

October 21st, 2011 by dawn Leave a reply »

This is an organization founded on the never-give-up spirit, and aimed to spread and support the competitive spirit of “cancer survivors” against this catastrophic disease. A battle has just begun. Read the following story about this organization, and make the choice…

At age 25, Lance Armstrong was one of the world’s best cyclists. He proved it by winning the World Championships, the Tour Du Pont and multiple Tour de France stages. Lance Armstrong seemed invincible and his future was bright.

Then they told him he had cancer.

Next to the challenge he now faced, bike racing seemed insignificant. The diagnosis was testicular cancer, the most common cancer in men aged 15–35. If detected early, its cure rate is a promising 90 percent. Like most young, healthy men, Lance ignored the warning signs, and he never imagined the seriousness of his condition. Going untreated, the cancer had spread to Lance’s abdomen, lungs and brain. His chances dimmed.

Then a combination of physical conditioning, a strong support system and competitive spirit took over. He declared himself not a cancer victim but a cancer survivor. He took an active role in educating himself about his disease and the treatment. Armed with knowledge and confidence in medicine, he underwent aggressive treatment and beat the disease.

During his treatment, before his recovery, before he even knew his own fate, he created the Lance Armstrong Foundation. This marked the beginning of Lance’s life as an advocate for people living with cancer and a world representative for the cancer community.

Lance Armstrong’s victories in the 1999–2005 Tours de France are awe-inspiring, but the battle against cancer has just begun—not just for him, but for all cancer survivors and people just like him who think cancer could not affect them. He plans to lead this fight, and he hopes that you join him. This is a life he owes to cancer. This is his choice to LIVESTRONG.

    I, Grigoriy K. Sobko, am the author of a unique treatment technique “E- GKS’. Additionally, my other works include drug formulas for the
    “BIO-BON-FARMAKON” series.
    The method’s technical characteristics:
    -method of medicinal radicals;
    -regeneration method;
    -oxidizing-regenerating reactions;
    -no side effects;
    -regeneration on cellular, molecular, and genetic levels;
    -initial minimal results are apparent after the first day of treatment;
    -faith in recovery dominates the patient since day 5;
    -vitality and general well-being are restored;
    -all clinical labs corroborate positive results;
    -my medical formulas can be used in conjunction with pharmacological drugs, as well as independently;
    -when stored, guaranteed quality for 10 and more years;
    -effectiveness= 100cases(courses)=100 positive outcomes;
    -rehabilitation after chemotherapy and radiation; my method allows to rehabilitate in 20 days body systems;organs, marrow cells, central
    nervous system, cardio-vascular system, liver, stomach and intestinal tract, reproductive urological systems;
    -leukemia, lymphoma and myloma (especially, in children);
    -lung, rectal, breast, and skin cancers;
    -all of the above-mentioned cancer appear as a result of the nuclear radiation; in 1986 I was a liquidator at the Chernobyl explosion site,thus,
    I was directly exposed to the radiation. I’ve experienced its impact personally. I’ve studied its impact on my colleagues, soldiers, and how the
    local authorities and official medicine proved its total helplessness. I’ve conducted free medical sessions;
    -restoration of blood formula and of the hematopoietic organs;
    -elimination of toxins, viruses, microbes, Hepatitis A, B, and C viruses;
    -thrombus liquidation( especially after surgeries, transplants, replacements, total radio-chemotherapies, after intensive pharmacological therapy);
    -diabetes( gangrene, pancreatic cancer);
    -drug addictions( mild addictions is treated with 1 course; severe- with 2 course);
    -heart, cardio-vascular system- my method allows to avoid such dangerous interventions as bypasses; elimination of cholesterol plaque;
    -eczema, psoriasis(genetic hereditary disease). Initial positive results are apparent on the third day of teatment;
    -schizophrenia, epilepsy( 1 course provides significant reduction in seizures;
    mental clarity and social reactions improve).
    I would like to have my most effective regeneration method( of medicinal radicals) applied by the Health System.
    I humbly ask you to assist me in such noble endeavor.
    Thank you in advance.
    Respectfully, Grigoriy K. Sobko.
