Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Stories


"My name is Fakhroddin Sohrabi but since it is hard for most Americans to pronounce, I go by "Robbi." I am 59 years old and was born and raised in the Islamic country of Iran. At an early age, I started practicing the Muslim religion and developed a strong faith in God. In August of 1970, I came to America to pursue higher education and ended up at Bethany Nazarene College where God wanted me to meet one of his beautiful angels named Tralece, who became my wife in September of 1971. As I grew older, I started studying other religions and it was not clear to me which one was true. I kept searching, and about 2 years ago I had a very vivid dream or vision where Christ in all His radiance appeared to me. I felt it was a sign to me that Christ was very real. I started praying more and more and asking God to guide me in what I believed about Him and to lead me in the right way.

In 2004 my wife started volunteering more at the church, and I would also visit the church occasionally with her. Tralece's Sunday School class also warmly welcomed me to their functions, but were not pushy. I knew family and friends were praying for me. Then Tralece started having some health problems in September of last year. And when she fainted in the shower on December 24th, I took her to Deaconess Hospital Emergency. Within an hour the doctor came and told me that the CAT scan showed a mass had covered her left side of brain and the pressure causing all the problems that she had, which were nausea, headache, loss of memory, loss of vision and control of her right arm and leg. She was transferred to Midwest Regional Medical Center to be cared for by a neurologist. In January 15, 2006 she was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma T-Cell type brain cancer on central nerves system of her left side of the brain.

Since we had had exceptionally great results on all the products recommended by Dr. Mary Schrick, we decided to start Poly-MVA and natural products to treat my wife. Unfortunately she got nauseated and we had to take her to the hospital. After 3 months of treatment by doctors and using Poly-MVA, she did not get any better due to side effects of the chemo. On April 12, 2006 her condition got worse and on top of all the above problems she stopped breathing. The emergency group came to the hospital room and started their procedures to revive her, and three times the doctor said we lost her. I knew in my heart that the Lord was not going to let her go. She made it and they took her for a CT scan to see what was going on in her brain. It was more swelling that caused her problems. She was in ICU for two and half weeks and she lost all her energy and her muscles were so weak that she could not move or do anything. I asked our doctor to stop all chemo and other medications but we kept her on a full dose of Poly-MVA.

After a week of just taking the Poly-MVA she was out of wheelchair and feeling more normal. To the surprise of all the doctors and nurses that treated her, she was alive. If we had not start her on Poly-MVA, she would not be here today.
She has had two MRIs and both were cancer free. Praise the Lord that guided us to Dr. Mary and special thanks for the Poly-MVA. Throughout these past five months of great pain and suffering and multiple trips to the emergency room and hospital, I felt God's presence with me and His signs were all around me. I couldn't believe all the love we were receiving. We had a Christian nurse who would often pray with us when Tralece was in the hospital. Pastor Phil Hause was so caring and supportive. It wasn't so much what people said but what they did that helped me discover that Christianity was true. Then on May 1st, Rev. Gene Hulsey came to see my wife for the second time in the hospital. He talked with us and before praying for my wife, he asked me if I wanted to give my heart to our Lord Jesus and I said yes. Since we prayed together, my life has completely changed. I have felt joy, comfort and peace that I have never experienced in all my life."

"When I began Poly-MVA, I was always tired and down, and didn’t have any energy. Since I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma three years ago my IGM counts were extremely high. I can gladly say since taking Poly-MVA my counts have dropped! Thank you again."

"I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 2008-2009. I had 2 years of grueling chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant and 2 months of radiation. None of those treatments worked. After my last treatment of radiation, feeling very sick and on the verge of dying, I came upon Poly-MVA. After 2 months of integrating Poly-MVA for daily support, I felt a considerable difference in my quality of life. I stopped radiation, used Poly-MVA and LiqCoQ10 and changed my diet. I often visited the website for information. Poly-MVA gave me the nutritional support that I needed. The staff at AMARC has always been helpful and caring, especially while participating in the Poly-MVA Quality of Life Study. I often refer people to use Poly-MVA who are having health issues. I have since shared my experience with over 10 people and I will continue to share the information with them. I truly believe that Poly-MVA has made a huge difference in helping to save my life."

"After learning in October 29, 2010 that I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, I was directed to Dr. Tierney who recommended Poly-MVA. I used Poly-MVA during my time of treatment of chemotherapy. I was assured the Poly-MVA would not interfere with the chemo treatments. During this time of chemo treatments every three weeks of six treatments my blood counts always remaind high enough, so I never had to miss a treatment. I never had any side effect of nausea, tiredness, etc. I work two days per week and I was able to work and never missed any days. I finished my treatments the end of December 2009. I've gone every three months for checkups and so far everything has been good. I continue to take 1 tsp. per day of Poly-MVA. I have recommended Poly-MVA to other people dealing with cancer and some have begun using it. I wish you continued success in finding a cure for cancer. It certainly affects so many families. Thanks for letting me be part of the QOL study. I was very happy to do it. Update: March 20, 2013 I have been able to carry on my life very normally. I feel Poly-MVA helped me grow through this time with little problem from the treatments. I now am down to yearly check ups and the next one will happen in July 2013."
