I have a HUGE passion for meeting and encouraging people in all walks of life. I believe in what Cancer Victors and Friends stands for and I am excited to be a tiny part of the group of GREAT people searching, sharing and learning!
Let me tell you why I am personally passionate about this site.....… Read More

My Friend/Family Member Bio
My friend Laura had leukemia in college that went in remission after chemo, losing her hair, being sick, the whole 9 yards. She then underwent a long awaited single lung transplant due to scarring from the chemo treatment, (the other lung was so badly scarred she would bleed to death if they tried to replace it) She ending up passing away 2 yrs later from something basically pnemonia, NOT cancer. They fail to mention her immune system was compromised from the chemo of course. She used all conventional methods as far as I know though she started seeing a chinese holistic gal towards the later years. It's kind of ironic, I remember her telling me she didn't like talking about the "non conventional" gal she was seeing because people may thing she was crazy and here I am buried up to my neck in the alternative therapies world now. I believe she would have loved this site and knowing about all these alternatives out there. I think she would have made an AWESOME volunteer in talking to people on the phone and relating to their struggles and being compassionate.
Information on alternative therapies is so hidden from the general public...its no wonder we are getting worse and more cancer cases! :) I miss her, but know she is in heaven and healthy and happy now and looking down smiling at the work being done through this site! She remained happy and was the most positive person I know! She always had a smile to share and was full of grace. She asked about others when she was the sickest...before talking about her self. She was always poised and graceful! She was perfection in a cocktail dress or or cute-denim casual. She was loved by many and it was evident at the over 500 people who attended her memorial service September 2005 at the Troon Country Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Her family has started the Laura Burdick Foundation in her honor, they are located in Paradise Valley, Arizona.
If you believe in God the logic of how B17 kills cancer will be easy to accept and understand when you realise that God has given our bodies a natural defense against cancer which is determined by the food or junk we eat in our diet. It is a perfect natural balance that God has designed and planned for us in the way we live. When we alter that natural life balance according to the way we choose to live, rather than the way He teaches us to live, it is then that disease becomes an issue in our lives.
If you donot believe in God the logic and science of how B17 kills cancer will be easy to accept, because all the enzymes' and scientific chemistry that occurs in the body are undisputed and are real. Any biochemist or toxicologist will confirm them. The FDA even commissioned a team of the worlds top cancer specialists and bio-chemists to conduct tests to see if Laetrile could kill cancer cells. The team found it did kill cancer!. The team were all sacked and the findings with-held and coverred up. (see has it been proven by modern medicine)
So how does B17 kill cancer?...... Here we go....
Firstly we need to understand that our bodies use several enzymes to perform many tasks. Our body has one particular enzyme called Rhodanese which is found in large quantities throughout the body but is not present where ever there are cancer cells. Yet, where ever you find cancer in the body, you find another enzyme called Beta-Glucosidase. So, we have the enzyme Rhodanese found everywhere in the body except at the cancer cells, and we have the enzyme Beta-Glucosidase found in very large quantities only at the cancer cell but not found anywhere else in the body. If there is no cancer in the body there is no enzyme Beta-Glucosidase.
Now the following is what scares most people. You see, Vitamin B17 is made up of 2 parts glucose, 1 part Hydrogen Cyanide and 1 part Benzaldehyde(analgesic/painkiller). So its very important you understand the following:
When B17 is introduced to the body, it is broken down by the enzyme Rhodanese. The Rhodanese breaks the Hydrogen Cyanide and Benzaldehyde down into 2 by-products, Thiocyanate and Benzoic acid which are beneficial in nourishing healthy cells and forms the metabolic pool production for vitamin B12. Any excess of these by-products is expelled in normal fashion from the body via urine. Vitamin B17 passes through your body and does not last longer than 80 minutes inside your body as a result of the Rhodanese breaking it down. (Hydrogen Cyanide has been proven to be chemically inert and non toxic when taken as food or refined pharmaceutical such as laetrile. Sugar has be shown to be 20 times more toxic than B17 - see good & bad cyanide).
HERE IS THE GOOD PART - When the B17 comes into contact with cancer cells, there is no Rhodanese to break it down and neutrelise it but instead, only the enzyme Beta-Gucosidase is present in very large quantities. When B17 and Beta-Glucosidase come into contact with each other, a chemical reaction occurs and the Hydrogen Cyanide and Benzaldehyde combine synergistically to produce a poison which destroys and kills the cancer cells.
This whole process is known as selective toxicity. Only the cancer cells are specifically targeted and destroyed. See the diagram below.
That is how Vitamin B17 Kills Cancer. It has been proven and illustrated to work by the some of the top specialists in the world. Thats why the Contreras hospital in Mexico have been able over the LAST 30 YEARS to successfully treat over 100,000 cancer patients!!!
