About United Patients Group
I started United Patients Group in 2010 because of my father-in-law’s diagnosis of Stage 4 lung cancer with METS to the brain (brain tumor on the brain stem). He was given 2 weeks to live.
I remember that day as if it was yesterday. Stan went from a healthy 77 year old man enjoying retirement to the wasting stages of this horrible cell malfunction. Our hearts dropped. He was put on full time oxygen; he couldn’t drive, let alone walk. It was a scary time for our family. We didn’t know what to do.
We attended his next oncology appointment to find out what the future had for Stan and our family.
Wheeling him up with oxygen tanks toting along, we were now sitting in the room waiting for his oncologist to enter. She did and we asked the dreaded question, “How much time do we have?” She, Stan’s oncologist looked at us and at Stan and answered, “2 weeks.” Tears filled our eyes. We asked, “There has to be something?” Her answer was, “morphine.”
Stan was never in pain, so he declined morphine. As we sat there in shock and sadness, I asked his oncologist, “It’s in the news daily…what about cannabis and cancer? She mentioned that she didn’t know much about it, but at this late of a stage, she would let us try anything.
They deemed my wife Corinne his caregiver. We went into panic education mode the moment we left that office. Where do we start??? Getting a card, picking up some medicine and hoping for a miracle.
At first, all we wanted Stan to do was eat since research states that 40% of cancer patients die of malnutrition before they die of the cancer. Our outcome was surprisingly better than that.
We administered Stan with THC capsules infused with coconut oil. Not only did he eat, but within days he was up on his computer sending emails. A week later, Stan was shuffling around the house from room to room. At one point he shared with us that, “something is happening.”
This was incredible news to our ears. With this information, we delve deeper into research, which led us to a high THC regiment of cannabis oil. In our research we discovered that THC can and does send cancerous cells into apoptosis (self-suicide).
Continuing with this regiment, I am proud to say that 3 years later and two brain scans, my father-in-law is ALIVE and his charts state, NO EVIDENCE OF RECURRENT DISEASE. These five words are what started my wife and I on this journey to help others that are fighting for their lives or a loved one’s life.
Because of this, we knew there had to be hundreds of thousands of individuals and families scared and looking for answers just as we were. UnitedPatientsGroup.com is for those families.
