Well, it's been a long journey, but we're all continuing to live a normal life, amidst the adjustments that have occurred in our household. Many of you know and some do not, that the disease has spread to areas of the spine and outer layer of brain.
Yvonne has completed whole brain radiation, however, just started radiation for lower spinal area. We are praying & hoping this radiation will take affect as she has lost ability to walk and relies on hospital staff to assist with all needs.
We are now asking for donations in help to assist with medical expenses which have been enormous. Yvonne at this time feels that is where most funds would be most helpful for the family. She still takes many of the supplements she's been on and those funds would be useful, as well.
We rely on our faith in God to help keep us strong, including the dear friends and family. Now, a few extra prayers are most certainly welcome!!
Thank you for your support and may God Bless You!!!
Marc, Brittany, Kristin, and Brandon

Posted on October 17, 2013It’s been over a month since the last update and Yvonne is finally on her way to natural treatment, thanks to all of you! In addition to her Oncologist doctor, she has now included in the circle, a Homeopathic/Holistic doctor and an Integrative doctor. It has been an incredible journey, thus far, with WGN News doing a story on her in September, to being enlightened and educated on nature’s medicine. She has tolerated the drug she is on, thanks to her nutritional diet changes, and lifestyle. She has begun intravenous Vitamin C and Glutathione therapy; in addition, she is taking an abundance amount of supplements and herbs, so far around 40 tablets a day, and elixirs, and so on. She is one lucky woman to not have pill swallowing issues!
She could not begin this type of treatment without your help and for that, we are so deeply grateful! Your support and prayers are so appreciated.
As mentioned on WGN News, the next big fundraiser to continue her treatments is going to be held in December. If you are interested in a night filled with fun, food, dancing and entertainment, please feel free to visit the website for more information: www.yblock.wix.com/benefitfundraiser
Thank you all so very much and God Bless!

Posted on September 2, 2013Well, Yvonne has been quite busy with doctor’s appointments and a biopsy was done to analyze the tissue of the swollen lymph nodes on her neck, in which two were removed. Unfortunately, several are still growing in the area. The cancer in her bone is causing some pain in her back and shoulder area. It was confirmed that it is the original cancer from 2008, which is Metastatic Breast Cancer now. Many of you know how strong she is and is fighting the battle hard! She will not let this get in her way!
The good news is, she has been superior on her anti-cancer diet, juicing away her organic veggies, and keeping active and fit, and most importantly, keeping her faith strong. Thanks to your donations, she is able to purchase and take the many supplements she’s on which has given her energy and feeling good.
She has begun conventional treatment, which hopefully, will slow or stop the spread of the cancer. She has seen a holistic doctor and their team is working on a protocol for her. This protocol will consist of more supplements and enzymes, which the donations will be used for. We are hoping and praying that these methods will shrink these nodes and help her with the back pain. We’ll keep you updated as she progresses.
The Block Family is deeply grateful for your contributions that have come through, via website and mail. A special thanks to those incredible friends of Brittany’s that planned and hosted a successful fundraising event for Yvonne. They raised $3,000 for her! We still have a way to go; keep sharing the site!
Thank you again for all your support, donations & prayers! God Bless!
