What was supposed to be the regular, annual mammogram turned into a flood of appointments, discussions, biopsy, and surgery talk. A growth about the size of a finger with a pulse at the end was forming inside Terry's chest. Memories of her Aunt having breast cancer, a double mastectomy, and full reconstructive surgery at the same age quickly started haunting Terry.
"At the same time [thinking about my aunt], I thought, 'why me? I eat healthy, I work out' ".
After the initial biopsy, Terry was pressured to have surgery later that week. But Terry had 100+ plants that were her bread and butter ready to be harvested, and leaving only Manny to do it just wasn't an option. Renegotiating, Terry had a month and a half before surgery.
She not only got to work on her harvest, she got to work on her health. No more sugar, dairy, or meat. A full alkaline diet. Meditating every day. And taking 75mg of oil in the morning and night supplemented Terry as she pursued, "pure, 100% certain and positive thoughts that I WILL heal myself".
One week before surgery. Terry comes in for a pre-op MRI. One MRI turns into a couple of readings and some confusion among radiologists.
"Your reading is completely clean, there's nothing." Which was true, nothing but the small titanium dot to mark the spot of a previously large and oblong-sized growth. It was gone.
Terry didn't need anything else afterward to be completely reaffirmed in the power of cannabis, and the power of BVO FSO's.
"It just takes a little, and with a whole system change, I could do it. I could heal myself". Terry's story is inspiring. Whether cannabis performs what feels like a miracle for you or simply helps you feel better in your day to day life, cannabis is medicine & we're grateful for all she offers including our very special CEO, Terry.
