Message from Dan

Hello everyone, this is Dan

Since Jess was attacked on Tuesday, she has been dealing with a incredible amount of stress inducing situations. She has been dealing with; getting our locks changed, working with police officers and detectives on the pending criminal case of her attacker, scheduling her recently approved tests with UCLA to possibly start her clinical trial, scheduling her travel itinerary to UCLA, all the while going through the process of dealing with her attack.

Due to all this stress Jess had an aura on Thursday, followed by another on Friday. The two Auras happened while shopping for replacement items for the bathroom in an attempt to change the decor. All this has lead to me declaring a technological lock down and putting Jess on 'restriction'. She will not be allowed to blog, text or email until her level of stress has sufficiently decreased. Please do not take her lack of correspondence personally, it is a necessary action to preserve her health.

Jessica is extremely worn down and needs to let her body rejuvenate itself. I will be postponing her appointments at UCLA for one week. Hopefully this will give her enough time to start healing and speak to the detective handling the criminal case of her attacker on Friday.

Thank you for all of your support and sympathy for Jess, she will be back soon. Probably sooner then I wish.

    Thanks for the update Dan! Sending loving thoughts to you and Jess everyday!

  2. Sending love. Sending comfort. I don't even have words . . .

  3. Dan and Jessica,
    You will soldier through this period with the love and help of each other. Never feel that you are alone, either. I'm sure your family, your friends, and readers like me that you don't even know very well are thinking of you and will always be on your team. Some day when you are old geezers you will look back on this time and marvel at yourselves.

  4. Dear Dan & Jessica,
    Thank you for your update On Jessica, Dan. Bless your heart for putting "restriction & lockdown" on Jessica so she will recoop & heal. You did the right thing. You also are as precious to us as Jessica is. Love, thoughts & prayers to you both.

  5. Dan and Jessica,

    You certainly need to put yourself first and your safety, security and health has to be your number one priority. While I miss hearing the updates and any new news, I totally understand and will wait patiently for the tidbits you send out and send warm thoughts and prayers through the atmosphere until then.

    Thinking of you both. Hang in there.

  8. Dan and Jess,

    I have been following Jess' blog since moving home to Texas in Oct 2010. When we were in Wenatchee Jess inspired me with her enthusiasm for life. Especially during our 5:30 am workouts and wine club. Lately I have been inspired by your commitment to each other and the love that ties you together.

    Please let this post remind you that you two have touched everyone you have known together in a profound and meaningful way. We continue to cheer you on through the good and and the bad and we know you will persevere. We will continue to be here to listen, acknowledge, and send good thoughts, whenever, if ever, you or Jess are ready to blog. Until then you will be in my prayers.
    Hugs- Liz McCown

    Hello, my name is Ari, I am a survivor (so far...) of two cancers, a widower of a cancer victim (now re-married..) and is dedicated to fighting cancer, and helping others do so.
    I lived in Toronto, Canada (my family is in southern California), and last year, after marriage, I moved to the Philippines. I am majority owner of a Dialysis clinic, and built a unique cancer clinic, the one I dreamt of having when my first wife was struggling. I took her to Mexico clinics twice, for treatments (which were very successful!), talked to dozens of physicians, and always found lack of properly equipped clinics, which could do a lot better if they were.
    Along the way, I have gained insight of how proper Hyperthermia should be applied. This is a method which doubles the success rate of conventional therapies, and alternative ones as well, provided it is done properly. I have purchased the most powerful device for this, and added two other types of devices, which when applied in the right order, prevent a process of DE-sensitizing of cancer cells to the effects of specific frequency hyperthermia. We also do mild whole body hyperthermia in order to strengthen the immune system (with no side effects),and help reach the right thermo-therapeutic levels within the tumour.(the right temperature simply destroys the tumour...). There are also other aspects to this, biological ones, which for lack of commercial incentive (UN-patentable..) is not pursued by multinational pharmaceutical corporations which control all medical research in the field.
    I also introduced other forms of immunotherapy, and alternative cytotoxic elements, such as Helixor, a mistletoe extract, which has three times better success rate then most chemo agents, without the side effects.
    I can give information about many clinics I learned about, (mainly in Mexico and Germany)

  11. Please do not trust this Ari IDan. He masquerades as an expert in hyperthermia, when infact all he wants to do is to promote his cancer place in the Phillipines. His promo material contains lines such as " We guarantee a 30% reduction in your tumour ir your money back"....doesn't he know that there is no exact way to measure a tumour ? His promo email makes no mention of any doctors or oncologists at his facility, no mention of qualifications or even an address. Please be aware and know that his 'tips' are suspect and not from a qualified source. Ari Idan has already been removed from the Inspire cancer support web site.
