Hello Meech,

 I do not know if the last e-mail I typed up reached you or not, I am an imbecile on the computer. I  was wondering if Dr Williams provided you with any other references in regards to clients of his that had stage 4 colon cancer and came out of the treatment in good shape before he started with you. I am currently taking some immunotherapy in canada now and the skin problems are definatley  there but quite manageable. After that I will be on my own to make a decision on what treatment to take next, as I do not want to do the chemo or radiation. I  sincerely hope you are getting better and the new year finds you up and about and doing fine. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your response and your time. Again best of luck.

Thanx Greg

Hi Greg,

 

unfortunately, he actually mentioned that colon cancer has been a bit of a challenge.

Dear Meech

Thanks for your response, do you feel the treatment has not helped you and does Dr William have any feedback. 

You have mentioned you did other treatments as well besides this therapy and so you are unsure about what causes these side effects, may I ask what other treatments did u pursue .. I am really trying to find some other patient who had success with his treatment.  

Your valuable input is highly appreciated 

Thanks 

Faith

Hi Faith,

After doing the Williams treatment, I did no other treatments apart from the cocktail of medication that he suggested I take.

Prior to Williams, I did SEF Chemo; some off label therapies; and a strategy to deplete T4. This was all within four or so months before the Williams attempt. For each of those, I either did not tolerate the therapy (side effects like pain), or I had no benefits.

 

Dr. Williams is very responsive and helpful. He takes a while to respond sometimes, as he is busy (up to a week or so). 

Certain side effects may be cancer related or immune related and it's hard to tell as I am late stage. In general, I don't think the therapy helped me too much but to be honest, if you were to see my scans from October, it's a shock I'm still doing as well as I am, so it may be helping.

He has sent me a scan of a woman with my cancer type (Neuroendocrine) with a great complete response after treatment, but in general, I think what you'd hope for is a durable partial response.

 

He seemed very honest about patients it helped, and those whom it didn't help, and I'm sure it's helpful for patients but not all patients. I believe I remember him saying that it helped in more instances than not. 

 

You should send him an introductory email with some questions you have. He was happy to answer my concerns when I first emailed.

Hey Meech,

 I really appreciate your time responding to this, I am still searching, still looking. Best of luck, Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. I really hope things come out well for you. I am taking panitumumab now and it takes some time to work as well.

Take care Greg

thanks so much for your response, really helped me make a decision on my next move, I am very much in touch with Dr William and he is very good with responses to all my detailed questions, it is just that I would always want to know from a  patient perspective how they felt about the treatment but of course we cannot compare and just hope for the best , I wish you all the best and once again thank you for taking your time to respond .

Hi Meech, thanks for giving us so much info on Dr. Williams immune treatment.

Could you please give us an update on your situation? Did you get better after the October 2017 CT scan that looked so ominous? Did the new mets and the enlarged ones shrink? Did your caquexia go away?

What did Dr. Williams say when you told him about it? Did he give you another treatment?

I hope you are feeling much better now.

Thanks!

Dear,

Unfortunately, at the beginning of this year Milan has left us  https://www.arbormemorial.ca/glenoaks/obituaries/milan-eskic/15084

Here is a little more about Milan's journey https://www.gofundme.com/bjygvqg4

He was fighting a very rare and aggressive form of cancer. I remember speaking with him back in 2016 when he was doing TACE at Frankfurt University Hospital. That was probably the only treatment that worked for him, for a while. 

Kind regards,
Daniel

D, I just notice recently on the Williams website that he did an intratumoral of 3-BP on a patient in 2005! That is simply startling! The other published patients were almost 10 yeas later than that. It only was after the melanoma patient was published in 2014 that 3-BP became obvious to almost anyone who gave it some thought. Amazing how far ahead of the crowd he was.

Daniel, thanks for letting us all know about the end of Meech’s fight with his rare type of cancer. He was a brave warrior who never gave up. At the same time, he helped many of us by sharing the info he was gathering though his journey. It is a shame such a great young guy did not come on top…May he rest in peace.
Do you (or anyone elses in this forum) know of any clinics, in any country, that uses the same type of therapy as Dr. Williams does in his clinic? I mean injecting reliable immunotherapy drugs right into the tumor. I understand that this is the future of immunotherapy because it is much more effective (it often gets rid off of the tumor and of all mets) and safer (no autoimmune reactions) than giving them intravenous
I know that Stanford is doing a trial on lymphoma patients. I read that by injecting the drugs directly into the tumor the lymphocytes get primed to attack only the tumor cells, and not the rest of the body as it sometimes happen when the drug is given intravenous.

Thanks for any feedback you provide.

Dear, Dr. Williams is a man with a good heart and an innovative doctor. I appreciate him and like him because of these reasons. However, I am not sure about the results he has on the immuno-therapy road. I know some patients who did this at his place but I do not know anyone yet who benefited from this approach. In my view, the major immuno-therapies used across the world (such as anti PD1) are still a highly exploratory and unknown road with very limited results. The risk reward balance is not in the favour of immuno therapies. This is an over promising and an under delivering option at this point. I hope Dr. Williams will switch back to metabolic treatments combined with chemo as core therapies. Doing this with TACE will for sure give better results. With the tools he has in his hands we should see even better results compared to what we recently saw with metronomic 2DG and systemic chemo.
