IN MEMORY OF JOSEFINA CUA
(THE MOTIVATION OF THIS WEBSITE)
By Woon Lim, Supervising Appraiser, Los Angeles County Assessor Office
A MESSAGE FROM STANLEY, THE WEBSITE HOST
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
Now, a crown is waiting for me. These words
could be Josefina Cua , an Appraiser in Region 5, who succumbed to her
battle with cancer on February 28, 2001.
Josefina was born on December 22, 1950 in Manila, Philippines.
She graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics.
While a student in college, she also taught school part time. In
1972 she married Stanley Cua, a chemical engineer in Region 30.
They came to the United States in 1985. Stan credits Josefina for
creating and maintaining a loving, nurturing home for their three children.
Josefina joined Los Angeles County in 1990 as a clerk in the Pasadena
office. In 1997 she was accepted into Appraiser Training Class 56.
To those of us who were fortunate enough to have worked closely with Josefina,
she was more than a colleague, she was a dear and beloved friend.
She was kind, generous, and extremely considerate. She would go out
of her way to help others and never expect anything in return. Even
during her illness, she still made time for her family, friends, and coworkers.
She never complained about her troubles, but was always an encouragement
to those she came into contact with, including those she met while undergoing
her cancer treatment.
She was the best coworker anyone could have asked for. She was
conscientious, cooperative and willing to carry more than her fair share
of the workload. She was a constant inspiration to us all.
All of us who knew her will miss her very much, but her loving and caring
acts will linger fondly in our memories.

When you turn to this webpage I am sorry to say that you are probably the love one, a relative,
or a very good friend of a cancer patient, or a cancer patient yourself. It is also possible that you or
the cancer patient had been treated by the conventional surgery, radiation or chemotherapy but was
not cured and was given up, and now is in the terminal stage, a hopeless case in the eyes of oncologists.
Do not despair, do not give up, especially the terminal patient, there is high hope that you may find
a cure of your case from the testimonials. I have set an ambitious number of
1000 testimonials to be my present target, but I have the confidence that I will collect much more than 1000.
Presently I have more than a hundred testimonials that are waiting for me to organize before posting them,
there are also more than a hundred clinics and hospitals listed in the book "Third Opinion" 4th edition,
2005, written by John Fink that may have more than a thousand testimonials that I plan to collect.
If I include in the future the testimonials from China who used Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
alone to cure their cancer disease I may
reach a target of 10,000 testimonials. So you see you have a very very good chance of being cured by the
non-conventional, non-toxic alternative therapies.
If anyone tells you these alternative treatments are
not proven or are quack, he or she is either ignorant or not telling the truth. So cheer up, cancer is
not as horrible as the orthodox medicine wants you to believe, there were some testimonials of cancer
being cured by psychological means, which in simple language is to forget about the disease in your mind,
watch Charlie Chaplain or some other comedy videos and laugh as much as you can, who knows, your cancer
may just disappear without your knowing. The TCM doctor in Shanghai who had many long-term surviving
patients told me that almost all of those survivors were optimistic and had fighting spirit. Although it is
impossible to know if the treatment you select can cure your cancer, having an optimistic hope that you will
be cured may increase your survival rate, there is a connection between our mind and the immune system
which some researchers have proposed but have not been verified and accepted by the medical community yet.
Another piece of information that will cheer you up is a review of 741 cases of spontaneous regression from
1900 to 1987 by Challis and Stam in the medical journal Acta Oncol in 1990 cited by Donald H. MacAdam in
his book Spontaneous Regression, Cancer and the Immune System, 2003. MacAdam further pointed out that if cases
before 1900 and after 1987 were included, at least 1000 cases of spontaneous regression in cancer could be cited
based on the standard definition of spontaneous regression of Dr Everson and Dr Cole as the partial or complete
disaapearance of a malignant tumor in the absence of all treatment or in the presence of therapy considered
inadequate to exert a significanct influence on the disease. Spontaneous regression is something medical community
cannot explain, your oncologist will usually tell you it very very seldom happens, and if it happens it is a miracle.
But would you consider 1000 cases all miraclea? or would you think there may be a connection between cancer and the
immune system that may be related to your mind and optimism?
This website will help you search for the
best of many alternative treatments that can cure the cancer disease but are not known to your oncologist.
Yes, as you will see from the various testimonials, some were already in terminal
stage and were given up by the orthodox medicine but were saved by the alternative treatments that the
oncologists were not aware of or refused to accept. You can also talk to those lucky servivors if they have
the contact information.
You may ask why I am hosting this website, I have a simple answer: Because my most beloved wife became a cancer
victim 6 years ago and we couldn't find enough testimonials although we found many alternative treatments after the
ineffective conventional surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, we didn't know which to choose that would be best
for her, I had the firsthand experience of this helplessness, I would want to help the cancer patients not to
experience the same helplessness.
Now you have a better chance to get the right one from many testimonials that had similar type of cancer
who were saved by a specific alternative treatment. For example, if it is skin cancer, we know that the Gerson
Therapy or Hoxsey Therapy had many melanoma survivors; if it is brain cancer, the Burzynski, Polymva, or
Protocel had many brain cancer survivors; if it is liver cancer, the TCM tianxian in China had
many testimonials; if it is breast cancer, various alternative treatments can be seen to have many
breast cancer survivors and you can select the one that suits you best. However, you have to use
your own judgment in the selection because people sometimes exaggerate unintentionally in their testimonials
although they have the best intention to help other patients.
I am only collecting the testimonials of alternative treatments because you can't get those information from the
conventional doctors since alternative medicine is not accepted by the American Medical Association. I personally believe the
collection of those testimonials will benefit cancer patients and may save some terminal stage IV patients.
Why is American Medical Association or the National Cancer Institute or the American Cancer Society so much against
alternative medicine? You can find out in the book "The Cancer Industry" written by Ralph Moss, PhD, who was once
the assistant director of public affair at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, one of the well-known extremely
orthodox cancer research center in America. The book was written by an insider of a cancer research center endorsed
by the American Medical Association and supported by our huge tax money, it was a classic expose on the cancer
