Jill’s Story: A Cancer Survivor

 

Overview  |  Full Story

 

This was not a study undertaken by the Foundation, but a case with which we have had access to in virtually every detail. This includes the chart notes (with the patient's approval) as well as the observations and insights of the patient's health care provider.

 

The case involves an adult female who had been disabled for eight years with diagnosed fibromyalgia. Within four months of treatment, she was able to backpack, regularly work a full day and have little or no pain.

 

As with all our studies, it is our hope to stimulate additional efforts to determine if these results were an aberration or have wider implications.
