How your intentions helped Katie to heal from brain cancer

In November 2021, one of my current Intention Masterclass students, Sara Williams wrote in about her friend’s niece, Katie Lousteau, aged 17,  from Dorset, England.

Katie had been diagnosed with terminal brain stem glioma a few weeks prior to the intention and had been told by doctors that that there was nothing more that could be done and given only a few weeks to live.

Sara wrote in at the time to say: “She is noticeably deteriorating, and now thinking about getting a wheelchair as she cannot walk without difficulty, and her balance has gotten worse since the initial diagnosis.”

Our community intended for Katie’s cancer to completely disappear and for her to be healthy and well in every way on November 7, 2021.

Sara wrote to us this month to share some amazing news about Katie’s progress:

“Just before her Sunday Intention on November 7th, she was offered radiotherapy & has now had about 10 days’ worth.

“When my friend went down to see Katie on November 16th, she was in a wheelchair unable to walk at all because of balance difficulties, her speech was slurred & she had lost the use of her right hand.

“I got the following update on December 1st:

“Just before I had come out, Shelley had put a video up on messenger showing Katie walking out of the hospital after her treatment today!

“Such an amazing improvement from when we saw her and tonight, another video showing her using her right hand, something she hadn’t been able to do for quite a while. It’s amazing, and so heartening for the family.

“I'm sure the Intention has a lot to do with this, as well as the radiotherapy (which they weren't going to do)

“Our Intention Masterclass group, Every Little Thing are continuing to do monthly Intentions for Katie too.

“Thank you again for putting Katie up for an Intention”.

In April 2020, our community member Sandra Greep wrote in about her husband Dale Greep from Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.
Dale had been diagnosed with osteosarcoma (a type of bone cancer) in his right hip and femur and was in an extreme level of pain. Sandra wrote in at the time to say: "He is in hospital now, and unable to have  family visits due to the the COVID-19 situation. His spirits are very low, he has lost over 30 pounds and is unable to eat. He has an infection in his bone, and the tumor is not responding to chemo. The doctors are talking about amputation to extend his life."
Our community intended for Dale's cancer to completely disappear and for him to be healthy and well in every way on April 26th.
Sandra wrote to us this month to share some amazing news about Dale's progress:
To those who intended on behalf of my husband, Dale Greep, I want to express my deepest gratitude and appreciation.
I have taken some time to write in with an update so I could give you the most up-to-date results. Dale had a very aggressive form of osteosarcoma in his right femur and hip. His treatment plan was to do three rounds of chemotherapy which would hopefully calcify and shrink the tumor; giving the surgeon a shot at saving Dale’s leg.
After the first round of chemo, Dale had a terrible reaction. His tongue swelled up, mouth and throat canker sores were awful, nausea was constant. But the doctors sent him home anyway; unable to walk, incoherent, and as weak as I had ever seen him. Within a couple of days at home, his kidneys started shutting down. Our sons helped me get him back to the hospital. An internist in the ER decided to do cultures on Dale’s blood draws instead of just the normal run-of-the-mill tests. Turns out Dale had a staph infection in his blood stream and a neutrophil count of zero along with severe dehydration.
This internist’s intuition gave us a 24-hour head-start to getting Dale on the right antibiotic. We are so grateful.
Unfortunately, this kind of infection would populate in the tumor making the original treatment plan impossible. Any additional chemo to shrink the tumor would suppress Dale’s immune system allowing the staph infection to run rampant again. With the tumor as big as it was, radical high amputation was the most likely scenario. Oncology surgeries (because of COVID-19) were only being done one day a week and there were no openings for a month.
The surgeons had scheduled him in for after he completed two more rounds of chemo; which were now cancelled. Imaging showed that the chemo had little effect on the tumor. It actually looked larger. So, we waited for three and half more agonizing weeks until April 29th.
Dale had lost 42 lbs and was so frail. We found out on June 23 that the surgeon did not expect Dale to survive the surgery. Round about this time Dale was chosen for your Intention of the Week.
The prudent, least traumatic, and most practical course of treatment would have been to remove Dale’s leg. Shortest time in surgery, least amount of blood loss etc. But against all odds, our lead surgeon decided that if the other surgeon was game, and the anaesthesiologist was confident he could keep Dale alive; he was going to try and save the leg. Two surgeons spent nine hours removing the femur and hip, removing quad muscles, removing tissue and tumor, removing femoral nerve, and rerouting the circulation in Dale’s leg (femoral artery and several veins were contaminated).
Dale was in disbelief when he woke up in recovery with both legs. We also just found out that his tumor was the size of a BIG honeydew melon. The surgeons were hopeful that they got it all, but there was no way to know how far it had spread. They could just have saved the leg of a dead man.
Recovery was a beast. Dale was so weak. His blood volume was very low, and he needed transfusions. But his pain was GONE!! Even the knee to hip incision was a piece of cake.
Then, we got the most amazing news!! The one round of chemo before surgery was enough to kill that massive tumor. When it was dissected it was 99% necrotic (dead).
The surgeon said they’ve never seen anything like it. It’s now in a tumor bank for research and reference. The surgeon’s exact words were “you must have prayed this thing dead.” Yes, we did, in fact.
We were recently told that all surrounding tissue margins have come back negative for cancer. Lymph nodes are all clear. No sign of metastatic disease. For all intents and purposes, Dale is considered cured of osteosarcoma. We have several rounds of chemo to do, but his first one since the surgery has been tons better. Four more sessions to go.
So, if you’re wondering if what you’re doing makes a difference; let me assure you it changed our world. Keep sharing your positive energy, thoughts, and focus. It’s working miracles for those of us fortunate enough to be the recipients of this magnificent gift. Thank you so much, and may the blessings you wish for others come back to you ❤️.

Remember Jewel Wensel? A musician, teacher, composer and mother,’ living in Loveland, CO USA. She was one of our intentions of the week on March 29, 2020.
Jewel had been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma and was scheduled for Mohs surgery on April 1, 2020.
We’ve just heard back from her friend Grace Garnett, who nominated her, with the following amazing news:
“Julie managed to get her surgery rescheduled and so the first surgery to remove all the cancer was highly successful on April 8th.
“Her second surgery - to begin her forehead flap nasal reconstruction - was on April 13th.
“The 3rd surgery - to continue the nasal reconstruction - will be 3-4 weeks from April 13th.
“There may or may not be a 4th surgery, depending on the 3rd one.
“This is all due to everyone holding Intention - and she was able to get her surgeries scheduled with a new team that was willing to do the surgeries during this time period. (Otherwise, even with an aggressive cancer - she would have had to wait until much later).  All these outcomes are due to everyone's holding of Intention (in my mind).
“Please feel free to report her most wonderful and joyous outcome.
“Love and blessings.”

Last October, our community member Barbara Swetina wrote in about her friend Sheila Pettitt, a beautiful ‘musician, teacher, composer and mother,’ living in the hills of Scotland, above Findhorn Bay.
“Sheila had lymph cancer for some years, fighting it with mistletoe injections and keeping it under control,” wrote Barbara. “But half a year ago it flared up and from the doctor’s point of view she needed chemotherapy, which she had over the last months and a stem cell transplant, which is happening in the next few weeks. Sheila is courageously holding the vision of a successful recovery and we; her circle of friends is holding it with her. Please support Sheila's recovery with your intentions!!
We’ve just heard back from Barbara with the following amazing news:
“I just want to convey my sincere thanks to Lynne and all who are helping with the power of 8 groups!!!
“I submitted the case of my friend Sheila Pettitt who had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and was scheduled for hospitalization.
“We formed a group of 8 via zoom and have been since then intending for her on a weekly basis.
“Last week Sheila was released from hospital as cured and free of cancer symptoms.
“Although the doctors won’t say that she is cancer free, they say the stem cell cure was successful and Sheila is able to lead a normal life, even though she is still weak, building up her strength on a daily basis.
“I am so grateful for having been part of the journey with something positive to do when I think of her instead of worrying.
“Blessings on all the team!!!”
Many thanks too all of you who participated.  Keep the intentions coming!
