Ceilie, born 1921, was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2000 at age 78. They found a 3.8 x 2.8 cm mass, she was not a surgical candidate. They told her that there was nothing that they could do for her and that she had a few months to live. She started the program in 2000, the tumor has shrunk by a remarkable amount, then stopped shrinking. Currently, she feels better and is more comfortable, also because of the fact that it is stable and not progressing. A PET scan may be considered to see whether the tissue is dead or not because the lesion is no longer hard and firm as it once was and is now soft and "mushy" , indicating necrotic cellular breakdown.
