First, I am so sorry to hear about your friend. Cancer sucks indeed. My brother, the love of my life, my everything, passed away Easter Sunday of 2014. It’s been 5 months but it feels like yesterday that I was choosing his casket. It’s something I say a lot. “I chose my brother’s casket.” Ugh. My brother battled leukemia and then was too tired to continue so I have taken up his battle. I am in pain and I want to be with him but I know that I am needed here. My son, my husband, my parents, his daughter, need me here. I want to have lots to tell my brother when we are reunited.

Hugs, to you and your friend’s loved one. Cancer is the biggest a-hole.

I too am a believer in our foods can heal us. This is not popular with the drug companies. Not popular with most doctors either. I try to grow as much as I can organically and feel like my family is healthier for it. Gofundme is an excellent site for raising funds. What about a digital healthy recipes cookbook authored by Jaden and Jeanette? Some of the proceeds to be given to the research. Would be a best seller for sure…..

Seeing the words superfoods and cancer I was really hoping to see just how much of a certain one of those foods is necessary to have some benefit, but it seems that their compounds need to be isolated in a lab to have some sort of effect, since none of the information explains it. Also, regarding aromatase, what if, for example, someone did not want to inhibit estrogen production?

Overall, however, people should recognize that this is Jaden’s blog, on which she is free to do as she pleases and sponsored posts are one way in which bloggers make money. I’m guessing that a PR agency working with the hospital collaborated with this group of food bloggers and asked them to make a site visit and then blog about their activities. This has various benefits for both sides.

I am so sorry Jaden, for the loss of your good friend.

Aromatase doesnt cause cancer, it is an enzyme that helps produce estrogen. It can be helpful to inhibit in patients that have cancer, but it is a control, not a cure. Using various compounds as Angiogenesis inhibitors is great in theory, but hasnt actually been very productive in doing much of anything at all. It was promising research at one point but isnt the silver bullet people were looking for. There is so much more wrong here with this advertisement…

But really, the worst part of all is that you are capitolizing off of a friends death to advertise a sponsor of several blogHer events. In doing so you are tacitly encouraging people not to look for actual treatment for life threatening conditions and asking them to trust in supermarket remedies and ancient herbal remedies. If it was medicine it would be called MEDICINE.

With regards to your question on how to raise $1M for his research, reach out to him to and let him know that you can help raise all of that (and probably more) on KickStarter. One of his books (or one of yours perhaps) could be used as the “prop” to help get investors interested in his research. The idea alone of trying to fund cancer research using KickStarter might be unique enough to garner the attention needed to drive more people to his KS profile. Just a thought.

I know hearing “sorry” does not fill the gap of what one is feeling, I lost my sister in law to cancer this spring, she left behind a 6 yr old daughter and my brother. I wish great happiness for this family who lost their mother, something that in time the hurt and lost will heal, and I send to you my love and warm hugs.
Germaine

Extremely informative and I loved your kid-friendly version! I’m so so so sorry about the loss of your friend though. Cancer does suck! I lost my sister to it a couple years back. I’m sure Shari really appreciated your friendship and comfort in her final days though! I sometimes feel that is where I fail because things like this just break me. God has certainly blessed you with this gift! Praying for her family and for you as well! I always have to remind myself that only God sees the big picture and I pray he just blesses those boys of hers! Thanks again for sharing!!!
