I just watched your presentation on the Viral and Retro Summit, and I wanted to tell you that your personal story was very encouraging to me! I thought my struggle has been difficult, and it is nothing comparable to what you overcame! I was diagnosed with Lyme's some 20 years ago, and I struggle with many serious autoimmune issues. But I never had cancer, and, although my doctor suspected Crohn's when I was having abdominal issues (that were Leaky Gut, long before Leaky Gut was a known phenomenon), I was never diagnosed with that. Hearing you keeps me fighting, like all those other people who never give up. I am still suffering, but I have learned a lot, changed a lot, and improved my situation a lot, so I keep going. Thank-you for your positive presentation! I took home a lot!
