Lupita is now 16. She lives on the border between Mexico and Guatemala. Her home is a dark shack with a dirt floor that she shares with 10 members of her family and 2 babies. They have no running water or electricity.
In 2006, at the age of 14, Lupita was diagnosed with an ovarian teratoma (a congenital tumor). Lupita underwent 2 surgeries, followed both times with chemotherapy. The 2nd surgery was a complete hysterectomy. Her chance of survival was slim. Her family was befriended by a lady, Katherine, who owns an organic restaurant. The Gerson Institute, sponsored by grants from Children's Cancer Aid and Research Institute, gave Katherine a full scholarship for a Gerson caregiver course and a used juicer for Lupita. A new kitchen was added to the side of the dark shack: electricity was added and now there is a refrigerator to store the organic produce. Funds were donated to provide medical diagnostic tests.
Lupita started the Therapy in March of 2007 as best she could. By April she had a good juicer, medications and was doing the modified therapy.
On June 28, 2007 she had a CT scan, which showed no tumor regrowth. Her CBC was normal. She is feeling well and continues to do well.
Lupita's story shows that even a person with severe limitations, living conditions and deprivations is able to do the Gerson Therapy-and if Lupita can do it, anybody can do it!
