Blindness
I became blind from Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma

complicated by Lymphomatous Meningitis  in March of 1994. The

cancer made the lining of my brain swell, and that swelling

pinched off the optic nerves. Thankfully the hospital saw the

swelling and they were able to stop it before any other damage

happened.
It was such a rare form of cancer that I was given a 1 in 10

chance of living up to 6 months. This was in March 1994 and if you

have looked at the calendar lately, its a bit past that now. 🙂
I went through an extended course of radiation treatments from the

top of my head to the bottom of my spine. After that, a tumor

popped-up in my armpit. The surgeon who removed the tumor told me

after surgery, Steve, there are some things we don’t need to know

in life and I’m not going to tell you how big the tumor was.
I started chemotherapy and the new doctor I was seeing made the

comment, “Well I hope I can get six treatments in you.” I thought,

why put money in the pocket of this doctor if he thinks that is

all he’ll be able to do before I die?
I then started drinking an herbal tea called Flor Essence. It

purifies the blood and was created by some Indians in Canada who

shared the recipe with a nurse who helped them.
I drank the tea like it was a religion and soon there were no

traces of cancer to be found in my body. I continued drinking the

tea for about a year, again with no signs of cancer or anything

related coming back. I decided that if something ever does come

back, I don’t want it to be resistant to the tea.
