All the best to Peter and his family from me. There has been so much progress in the treatment of cancer. I hope his type is one that has a high survival rate.

Thank you guys.

It's been a tough battle so far and I wouldn't wish cancer on my worst enemy, I fought everyday for my wife and 7 year old boy, and I'm happy to report that I'm in full remission, without a trace of cancer left in my body! I went into remission last month and the doctors were amazed at how well I responded to the treatment and how fast I went into remission!

I have my last treatment this week, then next month I undergo a grueling stem cell transplant, which will be a hard road to travel, but it will be well worth it as it will add years to the remission time.

Peter,
I cannot tell you how very happy to hear this I am.
I wanted to ask you, but for obvious reasons did not.

Seriously,
I don't even know where one goes in the body to find a stem cell?
I've never even met someone who had a stem cell transplant.

Muchisimas gracias for bringing us up to speed on your progress.
I've always got your back Brother!

Peter;

Great news. I love to hear about people who have won a battle against this insidious disease.

You have chosen a tough (stem cell) treatment as you know, but you have the mental toughness to bear it and with your positive attitude and dedication to your wife and son, you will come through fabulously.

Prayers are up and my very best wishes for a successful procedure and quick recovery.

Doug

Thank you guys!

And well I had my Stem Cell Transplant today and it was very very successful!!!
It was harder, more painful and uncomfortable than I expected, but I did it! It's done! This whole process was the hardest thing I've ever had to do, but I'm a better and stronger person because of it!
I have about 2 weeks left in the hospital to recover, and then my life should return back to normal for a very long time!
Thank you all for your support! I'm back baby!!

You are all so wonderful. Thanks for the words of support!
This was and still is a tough road, it was the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with, but I stayed positive and fought hard for my little boy and my wife, and most importantly I never gave up! And thanks to modern science, I should be around for a very long time!

I've got about 11 days left of recovery in the hospital, and I can't wait to go home and get back to work. I've been in here since Feb 9th and the best way to describe it is being in jail. Lol except the food is worse!

Pulling for you, Peter! Good to hear all the positive things!
Message: Posted by: Peter Loughran (Mar 2, 2014 09:33AM)
Thanks Michael!

After spending almost a month in the hospital, I get to go home today! The transplant was a huge success and the grafting is already skyrocketing and my new stem cells are producing all new clean blood cells at a very fast rate all on their own!! Science is an amazing thing!
I'm still a bit weak and my taste buds are still off, but other then that I feel really good! I'm excited to return back to work this week (got lots of magic to build!).
I'm a new man so watch out Planet Earth PeteTown is back!!
Thank you all again for your support during this difficult time for me and my family!

Peter.

Thank you all for the continued support!
Recovery from the stem cell transplant is going well, and Im feeling really good.
Also I Just had great news on Friday. My results came back from my CT Scan for my 3 month check up post stem cell transplant, and I'm still 100% cancer free!

I saw your FB post on this! Great news! Glad to hear it!!

Great news Pedro! It's about keeping your body alkaline
versus acidic.

Acidic environments cultivate cancer cells in lab experiments. The body needs acids, it's about finding the right balance for you.

I'm certain your Dr. shared this with you, but I
thought it important to share.

Hi Piers,

I am still doing great, thanks for asking!
I am happy to see you are doing great too!
I have check ups every six months now. My cancer will likely return one day, but I'll be ready to beat it again when it does!
Sorry for the late reply, I'm not on the Caf as much as I used to be.
But feel free to join me on Facebook to see what I'm up to!

Best wishes,

P.
