Do your own research

Editor:

I am living with breast cancer metastasized to bones and organs.

Recently I discovered medical papers and journal articles stating that tests show cancer patients with high vitamin D serum have a better chance of survival. Especially breast cancer has a 50 per cent increased life span.

That is significant. I went to my doctor to ask for a test of my levels. He knew all about the Vitamin D and agreed it could help me. In several months, not one of the many physicians I have seen suggested I check into this.

All these months, I could have been taking extra vitamin D. I had to find this out myself. The only conclusion I can come to is that no one makes any money if cancer is cured. I am so angry for myself, and any others living with this disease.

Folks, do your own research and demand what you need. B.C. Med doesn’t even pay for the test. I’ll be doing that myself.

Ann Dickie, Sechelt
