In 1994, David Emerson was just 34-years-old when he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, an incurable cancer of the bone marrow. Between 1994 and 1997 David combated three relapses of his myeloma with radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and a stem cell transplant. On his third relapse his doctors told him there was nothing more that could be done and that he had 6-12 months to live.
Not accepting his fate, David did extensive research and sought out non-conventional therapies to survive. In 1997 he traveled to the Burzynski Research Institute (BRI) in Houston, Texas where he underwent antineoplaston therapy, (ANP) a non-FDA approved therapy his health insurance deemed unnecessary. His myeloma slowly retreated and he has been cancer free since April of 1999.
David learned from his experiences. Although he knows that no therapy is a silver bullet, David believes strongly that people facing a cancer have a right to information about the full spectrum of approaches to cancer therapies. The information about multiple myeloma David found on the Internet helped to save his life, and he is passionate about helping others succeed in their battles against all cancers.
