Ill with Cancer and dealing with it.

Food - all organic, no bread, no dairy, little fruit(cancer loves sugar) no sugar.
Diet- Make almond milk drink with cacao and Xyla (Xylytol chemical sweetener)
Smoothie - make in the morning and drink all day.  Made with parsley, apple, bee pollen,
propolis, left over rice with quinoa, amarenth, bok choy, celery, chard, almond pulp, walnuts,
hazelnuts, Flax Oil, omega 3 oil  or variations of above.  Make about 4 cups and it gives me great energy and seems to keep me balanced.
Evening meal - fish or venison or moose or beef plus potato, carrot, mushrooms and onion with garlic.
Supplements - Vit Bs,B12 plus Folic acid C, D, E.  Magnesium and baking soda.
Homeopathy - Hyoscyamus Niger 1M, Rhopakraus 30C
Flower remedy - Pine, hornbeam, Elm, Gentian

I am about to embark on a regimin of Cannabis juice high in CBD and not THC taken an ounce or so three times a day.  Cannabinoids are in all of us and it is a system that becomes dysfunctional in some.  Every cancer cell has receptors for cannabinoids and if they enter they kill the cell.  I will see if that is true.  Great advantage having the offending lymph nodes under my arm and every morning when I shower I can feel them and the area around and tell if it is larger or smaller, more swollen or not.

How to Make Almond Milk. - Easy to do.

A mother's day gift to the healthy. Making almond milk. Start with one cup of organic almonds. Soak overnight or at least one hour, Drain, osterize with 4 cups of water. Put through cheese cloth, nut bag or fine sieve. Put pulp back in machine with 1 1/2 cups water. Pulp and repeat process. Milk is done. Add Vanilla if you want. Tastes like almond milk but has no binders and it fresh. Makes me a great cup of Cacao. I add the pulp to my oatmeal so nothing goes to waste.

An Invitation to the Premiere 

me, the Bees and Cancer

                                                      in support of

                                            the Actors Fund of Canada

A few months ago I was suddenly in a financial emergency mode.  I went to the Actors Fund of Canada, a lifeline for the Entertainment industry.
They helped.

With the official opening of my Documentary Feature, Me, the Bees and Cancer on  May 31st at 7 PM at the Royal Cinema, I now have the opportunity to make the Premiere a Benefit for the Actors Fund, knowing that others in urgent need will find their support.

We’re seeking support through sponsors who will be recognized on the film and in the Program for the event:
   a $1,000 Donor will receive 10 tickets plus 2 Hollywood Survival Kit Pocket Packs.
   a $500 Donor will receive 5 tickets plus 1 Hollywood Survival Kit Pocket Pack
   a $200 Donor will receive 2 tickets.
   a $100 Donor will receive 1 ticket.

   Donors in order to get a tax receipt can make their donation on line directly to the Actor’s Fund and in the note area at the bottom of the page just add “me, the bees and cancer” and I will then reserve tickets in your name,  If you don't want tickets but want to donate then please do and say so at the bottom of the page and get your tax receipt. 
Alternately you can make a check payable to the Actors Fund and send it directly to me then I will send it on for your tax receipt and reserve tickets in your name. 
John Board, 37 Sussex Ave. Toronto On M5S 1J6

   Blocks of tickets are available through me at the above address or,  
   My email contact

   At the door the tickets for the opening night Benefit are $20.00

   General admission for the run is $10.00

   At present you can see the Royal Cinema page on our film and in a few days it will have its times of screenings and where to reserve tickets.

Up to 400 people will be able to attend the Premiere at The Royal Theatre, 608 College St., Toronto.  Let’s fill the Theatre knowing that The Actors Fund will receive 50% of the proceeds from all tickets and 90% of the Donor Revenue.

ts evening on a rainy day. The lilies of the Valley are tall and the tulips about to leave. A rainy day!!! Fresh air!!  There are patches of golden rod too and the rest of the green are the Jerusalem Artichokes that bloom in the fall.  To the left unseen is the rhubarb with its leave spreading almost 2 feet and opening to soak up the sun and rain.  Peaceful and powerful too.  Full of life.  And we the observers.

In the Hurry of living I have forgotten how.

I no longer know about others as I rush through my life trying to do things that are difficult to do and not able to organize my space and computer world and all the myriad of details that I must attend to. I find it daunting and sometimes just want to give up my efforts to stay on the high road I have been on. I keep thinking there are people out there who want to know about other ways of healing themselves. Ways that are gentle, effective and without side effects but I am beginning to wonder if that is really so. If it is so I cannot seem to reach them, not with my wonderful Pocket Pack, and now I wonder if my own community will even come to see the film I made. If they will attend the benefit, the opening of my public run at the Royal Cinema. I so want to raise some money for the Actors Fund. It is a worthwhile venture and so many in the entertainment industry utilize the fund as I did. A haven in a rough sea worth donating money to. But I wonder if I will be successful at even that. I am discouraged by my life although it is as productive as I can make it. I just don't have it together enough to succeed it would seem. It is my inner personality that is not rising to the job. I know that and there is not much more to say than that. This does not mean I will not stay the course but it is not as a late bloomer but rather as a rose too long in the vase with faded petals and only a memory of beauty that once was. Ugh. Having cancer takes time mostly just to eat enough to keep my weight up and give my body enough nutrients to keep me on an even keel. My creative work on scripts and with creative people is still strong and I think useful to those who I am working with but I do not know. How does one ever know what is right and wrong other than at the moment of doing? Maybe tomorrow will be a better day and I will accomplish some of the work I want to do to keep myself afloat in this mood so many years in the making.
