Dear Rev. Malkmus, you have been such a great help to me in overcoming my life-and-death battle against cancer that I would like to send you my testimony.

When I had a small lump removed from the right side of my neck in December of 1999, it was diagnosed as lymphoma cancer. After the surgery, my surgeon said all the cancer had been removed.

However, when CT scans of my entire body were taken in January 2000, third stage lymphoma cancer was found in my abdomen and the doctor advised me to begin chemotherapy treatments immediately. His nurse said that if I didn't receive chemotherapy, I would experience lots of pain within a couple of months.

I had previously seen a friend suffer terribly from chemotherapy, and she did not survive, even after enduring those painful treatments. I agonized at the thought of going through the same procedure, and it wasn't until I made the decision not to accept chemotherapy that a peace and calm came over me.

I am 74 years old and have lived a productive life. If it would be 'my time to go,' I was ready! I am a born-again Christian and know that the next life will be much better than life here on earth. If the Lord wanted to take me now, that was all right with me. So I informed my oncologist that I would not accept chemotherapy and my family supported my decision.

Shortly after my decision to refuse chemotherapy, my daughter Colleen heard about Hallelujah Diet. After prayerful consideration, I contacted Hallelujah Acres and began the Hallelujah Diet. I followed your diet religiously--after all, for me this was a matter of life or death.

When my children learned about my cancer, they decided to take care of me while I was still alive, and so I moved in with my daughter Gail, and her family supported me by also going on this vegan diet.

In June 2000, I had another CT scan which revealed that, although there were still some enlarged lymph nodes, they were smaller and less numerous than they were six months prior. For me, this was most encouraging and I faithfully continued on the Hallelujah Diet.

I continued to have CT scans every six months, which continued to show my condition was improving. My last scan, taken in January 2002, reads: 'negative for evidence of progression of disease. in fact, there appears to have been resolution of 1 cm. Precarinal lymph node.'

Now, two years after my doctor's diagnosis of third stage lymphoma, I am free of cancer and live an active life at a senior apartment complex. I am still alive to enjoy this beautiful California sunshine as I go golfing with friends every week, and also am strong enough to help a friend as a handyman to do painting, yard work, trim trees, plumbing, carpentry, and electrical work. And as for that extra bedroom my daughter Gail had prepared for me to spend my last days--it is now used by my grandson for his computer equipment.

Attached to Basil's letter and testimony was another letter. This one comes from Basil's neighbor, Claire M. who writes: "I am a friend of Basil Murphy, and live in the same complex. I can vouch for his wonderful recovery. There are 165 apartments in the facility where we live. Basil M., who worked for years as a Los Angeles meat cutter, is considered a 'walking miracle' in this facility. He steadfastly stayed with the Hallelujah Diet vegan diet and today has more stamina and strength than most of us who never had to battle such a debilitating illness.
