Cancer By Lynn Boyle 1956-2014 Cancer is a monster it has taken my Mind Beauty Joy Pleasure Trust It has seared my skin off my body It has broken my spirit It has destroyed my hope for any future It has taken my identity My independence And left me Waiting for death

As a cancer survivor I know how devious this monster is, I survived thanks to my wonderful surgeon - I was one of the lucky ones. However there is a cure - Cannabis Oil, a friend of mine cured herself of Stage 4 bowel cancer so I know it to be true. An elderly man in Ireland cured his cancer with wheatgrass. Check out Run From The Cure on You Tube and see for yourself how Rick Simpson discovered what Cannabis Oil can do.
