The Price of Positive Outlook

Mae Yap, 56, is a survivor of her own fate. Since birth she had bronchial asthma that bothered her for a while. In 2000, upon her doctor’s recommendation, Ms. Yap decided to undergo medical workup because of her swollen womb. The result was Uterine Myoma, but “fortunately it was negative of cancer,” she says.

But in 2003, she noticed that the swelling came back again. This proved to be a serious case when “a piece of skin tissue was sloughed off from my breast,” Ms. Yap recalls. She consulted a specialist at the Philippine General Hospital. But this time the results were grim: She is suffering from Stage III Breast Cancer.

This is no ordinary story. Hearing the terrible news of her fate, Ms. Yap should be sulking, but she chose not to. She went on to get an operation in Singapore General Hospital. She was advised to undergo chemotherapy and radiation to fully recover.

Ever the optimistic, Ms. Yap used Reishi Gano and Ganocelium capsules, Spirulina Candy, and Morinzhi as food supplement. “I survived those days by drinking dissolved RG/GL, to be taken within 72 hours, even if I’m still in pain,” Ms. Yap says.

“I was bedridden and had Alcopecia; my hair started to fall out and used Ganozhi Shampoo,” Ms. Yap recalls. It wasn’t long until her hair went right back and grew steadily, just as her condition improved. “Just after a week of taking all DXN products, I was able to stand up alone and eat regularly on time,” she says.

A year after her operation, her continuous battle for survival is transcended to inspiring others with similar fate. “I am now a cancer survivor and a member of Cancer Survivors Association in Northern Mindanao Medical Center in Cagayan de Oro City, Misamiz Oriental,” she shares. This endeavor has taught her that despite the trials, there is hope in every end of it; what is needed is the belief on every possibility and strength to face challenges with faith and optimism.
