I have never been much for signing petitions. Oh yes, I am passionate about oodles of things. I guess I just never found anything that really spoke to me. Nothing I would be willing to stand up for and speak my mind.
Actually stand up for and sign my name to.
In the wee dark hours this morning, as I read the story I have been following for 6 months or so, I changed my mind.
I decided to sign the petition.
I have the privilege of healing naturally. I think the information should be available to all who choose to heal in that fashion.
I was given a horrid diagnosis a bit over 1,000 days ago. When the outlook is grim, you have to bathe yourself in research and information and figure out your path.
I chose to say no thank you to what they were suggesting and follow a path less traveled. I chose to heal.
Today, when I filled out the petition… name, address, email….. I kept thinking to myself, am I willing to stand up for what I deep down believe with my whole heart?
Then it came to the last question:
Reason for signing petition.
Before filling in the box, I looked through others answers. Some quite lengthy. Some very technical and heart wrenching. People listed dates and how long they were given to live. Others listed all the things they had tried before finding Dr. Burzynski. Many went on to offer sincere and heartfelt thanks for the healing they had found.
I started typing all of my thoughts for signing the petition. I erased it 7 times. I tried to different wording. I tried to explain why I chose natural healing. I tried to sound thankful and gracious. I erased and started over yet again.
Then it hit me.
Those are the initials of my grands.
So my answer for signing the petition?
Three perfect reasons.
