 Cancer Success Story; Breast Cancer by Charlotte

November 2021 I was diagnosed with a cancerous lump in my breast. The lump was surgically removed in January 2022. Post-surgery both radiation and hormone therapy were recommended. When I investigated hormone therapy (which would be for 5 years), I learned it could have many side effects, including osteoporosis. With hormone therapy I would have a 5% chance of developing cancer again, and without taking it I would have 8% chance of recurring cancer. In my thinking, the potential side effects to my body didn’t balance with the ‘benefits’, so I decided to follow another path which would be beneficial to my body.

I researched the Paw Paw program through reading, internet search and talking with  Donna and another herbalist. This program had science behind it (over 32 years of scientific studies by Dr McLaughlin). It was important to me to talk with several women who had used the Paw Paw program to successfully overcome cancer. It was during this time that I heard Shauna’s story. She was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 29 and followed the medical route for 5 years. Unfortunately, the cancer came back. She then searched for answers outside the box. She is a TAFYH grad and she also followed the Paw Paw program. She reported that she has been cancer free for over 12 years. Talking with others who had traveled the road before me was an important part of gaining confidence to ‘take the plunge’. I decided that it was best for my body to follow the Paw Paw program. As 2 of my children are very science oriented, I wrote an explanation email and sent it to my family and anyone else who was skeptical and interested. It is included at the end of this testimony.

After the surgery, in early 2022 I joined a TAFYH team with Donna Roth as the leader. This was my second time taking TAFYH. Every day I was committed to eating the right foods, having a super food smoothie with Chi Mineral Tonic, Flax Hull Lignans, Arginine Plus, Collagen, and Greens. I was committed to drinking clean water with Chlorophyll, exercising and to doing ionic breathing. I took control of my health and was determined and committed. In addition, I did the MC program as I had trouble with AFib (arrhythmia).

As part of TAFYH I read success stories. I successfully completed the TAFYH course, and continued the Paw Paw program for a total of 1 year and the MC program for 6.5 months.

I was on board 100%, committed and determined to take responsible action. There were some challenging times like when one of my doctors strongly scolded me for following something that was purely anecdotal and had no science behind it. However, I knew there was a great deal of science behind Paw Paw as well as many success stories where cancer did not come back. The Paw Paw program addressed the root issues and was beneficial to my body, rather than causing other issues.

Recently I had a conversation with Donna where she told me that many of her clients who had breast cancer had taken a thyroid medication over an extended period of time.  I had taken a different thyroid medication for 28 years, getting off it in 2015 when I first began using herbs for my health. It was shocking to think that perhaps this contributed to the cancer that had developed in my breast. Although since 2015 I have completed Liver and Kidney cleanses, and detoxed, perhaps the damage had already been done in the previous years. It is known by doctors who think outside the box that the body finds a place to dump these poisons if the liver cannot detoxify it. Often they are dumped in the lymphatic area such as the breasts. The lump in my breast may have been a place that the Eltroxin toxins were deposited so as not to harm other vulnerable organs of my body.

One year after my surgery, during which I followed the Paw Paw program, I had a mammogram which showed there is no cancer in my breast area. I intuitively believe that I am breast cancer free.

I am thankful to Donna for the input and guidance she has given me as well as insights from her experience. She has willingly continued to answer my questions which has been so helpful.

Here is the description of the program I sent to my family:

What is the Paw Paw Program?


I have chosen to do the Paw Paw program as treatment in the cancer journey. It is used as prevention and to get rid of any remaining cancer in my body. As cancer is a condition of the whole body, I’ve come to conclude that this program is getting at the root of why I developed cancer and is destroying any cancer cells that may be anywhere in my body and building up my body so that, Lord willing, it won’t reoccur. With all treatment of cancer, there is a chance of reoccurrence. From the research I’ve done, I believe this is the best program for my body. 


The goal of the Paw Paw Program is: 

    to target rampant cell growth 

    to aid the body to mobilize its own immune functions 

    to promote new healthy cell regeneration 

    to bring the whole body into balance and maintain optimal health to avoid future disease challenges. 


Here is a summary of it: 

    Paw Paw - to stop energy production to abnormally growing cells while supporting healthy cells 

    Protease Enzymes - help break down abnormal cell membranes so the body’s own immune system can destroy the cancerous cells 

    Omega Essential Fatty Acids - to replace and rebuild healthy cell membranes 

    Chinese Chi Tonic: Essential minerals with immune herbs to help the body build and strengthen healthy cells 

In addition, geared especially for my body, I’m taking: 

    Cats Claw - cleans and builds up the lymph system, clears any infection throughout the body 

    E Tea - purifies blood and reduces inflammation - antibacterial, antimicrobial, parasitic, anti-neoplastic (agents that inhibit the growth of tissue masses)

    Flax Hull Lignans - effective in increasing apoptosis (mutant cell death) - I’m using this because the cancer I had was estrogen driven, and this targets hormone related tumours, immune system and heart disease. 1 Tbsp lignan’s = 1 gallon of flax seeds


While I’m doing this focus on building up the body, I’m also taking some supplements to work on the ‘electrical’ system in the body. A Fib is a result of electrical signals not being received correctly. In doing this I’m hoping to get at the root cause of the A Fib challenges I’ve had as well. 


While I’m working on this, I’m not eating grains and carbs, and aiming not to eat sugar. One theory is that candida (yeast overgrowth) creates an environment for cancer to grow, so by eating this way, I’m also trying to balance the yeast and gut bacteria. 


Further explanation for those who want to know more: 

1.       Paw Paw - works to inhibit abnormal cell growth in 4 ways explained below (for our Science buffs). 

                -Modulates the production of ATP in mitochondria of abnormal cells. Because acetogenins modulate the production of ATP, cancer and other abnormally growing cells can not thrive while healthy, normally reproducing cells are unaffected.

                -Paw Paw inhibits the growth of blood vessels that nourish cancer cells. 

                -Depletes the DNA and RNA building blocks for new cell division on abnormally growing cells. while it supports the normal cells. 

                -It’s effective in reducing tumors. 

    2. Protease Enzymes - taken on an empty stomach, it breaks down the protective membrane around the cancer cells so the cancer cells can be destroyed by the Paw Paw. It allows the body’s own immune system to be strengthened. 


3.    Omega 3, 6, 9 - Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) - important for cell membranes, and balancing of hormones (important as mine was estrogen driven) 

4.    Chinese Chi tonic - full of minerals etc - provides building blocks for enzyme production and healthy cellular regeneration. It includes adaptogenic herbal tonics to strengthen the immune system, support adrenals
