"In July, 1998, after a bone marrow biopsy and a splenectomy, I was diagnosed with Hepatosplenic Gamma/Delta T-Cell Lymphoma, which I was told was very rare. Since it was so rare and I was not ill, I asked for a second opinion. Samples from the bone marrow and spleen were sent to Mayo Clinic and the National Cancer Institute. Neither Mayo nor NCI confirmed the diagnosis of lymphoma, but rather diagnosed it as Large Granular Lymphocyte Leukemia. My oncologist told me that there was no treatment (thank goodness) for either disease, so I informed him that I would treat myself. I have been on the Hallelujah Diet since September 1998 after being introduced to your program by my niece (who has been free from breast cancer for four years). After being on the Hallelujah Diet for six months, I was told by my oncologist that my blood work was excellent and whatever I was doing I should continue. Last week my oncologist told me I do not have to return for a year. HALLELUJAH! I thoroughly enjoy your Health Tips each week and use Rhonda's 'Recipes for Life' cookbook every day." C.

I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in February 2000. After being treated with two of the six scheduled chemotherapy treatments they told me I would need, I learned through God's direction about Dr. Lorraine Day and Hallelujah Acres. Immediately, I quit the chemotherapy treatments and started the Hallelujah Diet. Everyone in my husband's family thought I was insane, as cancer has been in almost everyone in my husband's family. Also, the doctors at the Mayo Clinic said I could die if I didn't complete all of my chemotherapy treatments, but I am still here--praise the Lord!" Kristine 11/29/2001 HT:210

I am from Valdivia, Chile. Last October I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins lymphoma cancer. They told me they needed to give me 6 chemotherapy sessions and then radiation therapy. I did 5 chemotherapy sessions, until my body could not take any more. I lost 17 kilograms (37.5 lbs.), my mouth stayed dry, and of course my hair fell out. I had awful physical deterioration, until I met a North American brother and sister in the Lord who had previously suffered with prostate cancer and breast cancer. They told me of the Hallelujah Diet, which I have followed since March 2001. I stopped all chemotherapy treatment, now I have regained my weight, and I have more energy each day. I know that my tumors have not completely disappeared yet, but the Lord is doing the work in my life. My doctor is shocked that there is no metastasis. Maria P Chile HT200

"When I had a small lump removed from the right side of my neck in December of 1999, it was diagnosed as lymphoma cancer. After the surgery, my surgeon said all the cancer had been removed.
"However, when CT scans of my entire body were taken in January 2000, third stage lymphoma cancer was found in my abdomen and the doctor advised me to begin chemotherapy treatments immediately. His nurse said that if I didn't receive chemotherapy, I would experience lots of pain within a couple of months.
"I had previously seen a friend suffer terribly from chemotherapy, and she did not survive, even after enduring those painful treatments. I agonized at the thought of going through the same procedure, and it wasn't until I made the decision not to accept chemotherapy that a peace and calm came over me.
"I am 74 years old and have lived a productive life. If it would be 'my time to go,' I was ready! I am a born-again Christian and know that the next life will be much better than life here on earth. If the Lord wanted to take me now, that was all right with me. So I informed my oncologist that I would not accept chemotherapy and my family supported my decision.
"Shortly after my decision to refuse chemotherapy, my daughter Colleen heard about Hallelujah Acres and your diet. After prayerful consideration, I contacted Hallelujah Acres and began the Hallelujah Diet. I followed your diet religiously--after all, for me this was a matter of life or death.
"When my children learned about my cancer, they decided to take care of me while I was still alive, and so I moved in with my daughter Gail, and her family supported me by also going on this vegan diet.
"In June 2000, I had another CT scan which revealed that, although there were still some enlarged lymph nodes, they were smaller and less numerous than they were six months prior. For me, this was most encouraging and I faithfully continued on the Hallelujah Diet.
"I continued to have CT scans every six months, which continued to show my condition was improving. My last scan, taken in January 2002, reads: 'NEGATIVE FOR EVIDENCE OF PROGRESSION OF DISEASE. IN FACT, THERE APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN RESOLUTION OF 1 CM. PRECARINAL LYMPH NODE.'
"Now, two years after my doctor's diagnosis of third stage lymphoma, I am free of cancer and live an active life at a senior apartment complex. I am still alive to enjoy this beautiful California sunshine as I go golfing with friends every week, and also am strong enough to help a friend as a handyman to do painting, yard work, trim trees, plumbing, carpentry, and electrical work. And as for that extra bedroom my daughter Gail had prepared for me to spend my last days--it is now used by my grandson for his computer equipment."
Attached to Basil's letter and testimony was another letter. This one comes from Basil's neighbor, Claire Malis, who writes: "I am a friend of Basil Murphy, and live in the same complex. I can vouch for his wonderful recovery. There are 165 apartments in the facility where we live. Basil Murphy, who worked for years as a Los Angeles meat cutter, is considered a 'walking miracle' in this facility. He steadfastly stayed with the Hallelujah Acres vegan diet and today has more stamina and strength than most of us who never had to battle such a debilitating illness."
(HT Editor's note: Through the years we have received numerous cancer testimonies similar to the one above. It seems that when a person stops putting the garbage of this world into their bodies, and starts putting in the living foods, especially in the form of fresh vegetable juices, the body usually starts healing itself of whatever that physical problem had been, even stage three lymphoma cancer. HALLELUJAH!) Basil Murphy HT227 3-28-02

I just read these letters and am interested in Basil's. I have been sick since October last with a variety of ailments. I have not been diagnosed with lymphoma, but through internet research, I know that I have it. I am at the stage where I have had pains in my left groin and hip area and my left shoulder and arm. These pains have gone into my right side of those areas. I have been tested since October by my regular doctor. Blood and urine tests have not produced lymphoma, but I have read that the signs are usually not found until it is quite late in the disease. I have four children with one still a sophomore in high school. I am hoping that the Hallelujah Diet with BarleyLife will help me before I have to alarm them with tragic news of impending death. Please advise. Sincerely, Dann Sims
