Hi, My wife has pancreatic cancer, although now maybe she doesn't. She was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma in the head of her pancreas on July 24,2015. She was borderline resectable because the tumor had gone out of the pancreas and was dangerously close to the portal vein and the superior mesenteric artery. The doctors moved quickly and by 8/11/2015 she was receiving her first cycle of Folfirinox in an attempt to shrink the tumor so she could have a Whipple surgery. After four cycles of chemo there was no growth but no shrinkage either. I had been talking to my wife's friend who was involved with a company that sells nutritional supplements and a natural peptide product extracted from soy beans, called Lunasin. I researched the product and how it worked and was very intrigued. My wife's friend was able to put me in contact with some people, with various stages of pancreatic cancer, who were also taking the products. Their stories were amazing so I decided I had to give Lunasin a try. She started taking it along with a nutritional supplement drink at about the time she was finishing her fourth cycle of chemo. She took it for the next two months in conjunction with her chemo and after her eighth cycle on Nov. 18, 2015 , Ct Scan revealed a 75% decrease in her tumor size. She was now ready for her Whipple. She stopped chemo but continued Lunasin. On Dec. 22, 2015 after a routine stent replacement in her gall bladder, the hospital oncologist told us that her tumor had shrunk an additional 24%. An overall reduction of almost 82%. She had surgery at Johns Hopkins, by Dr. John Cameron, and it was very successful. I strongly believe that Lunasin played an instrumental role in her recovery and she continues to take it today.

My dog also has cancer (mast cell tumors) so our vet put her on a medication to treat it. The meds started to cause her problems and we had to take her off. I decided to start giving her Lunasin and her tumor has shrunk by about 33%. The doctor had her scheduled to remove one of the tumors but on the day I was bringing her in, I could barely feel her tumor. I dropped her off anyways and instructed the nurse to call me when she got in. She called and said the tumor was smaller and decided to post pone surgery. She seemed amazed and after reading the information I gave her on Lunasin she decided to have me get some for her to try on some of her canine patients.

Science has come a long way in the advancement of cancer with the various chemo drugs and radiation procedures, but they still have a long way to go. We shouldn't discount the power of natural products to help in the fight against cancer and other diseases.

Let me know if you want to know more about Lunasin. It could be a complimentary treatment to whatever your doctors have you doing.
