Yesterday my Grandmother had her port put in...  So she will be starting chemo soon...I called and talked with my Mother and my Aunt last night.  They are there in Pennsylvania with my Grandmother at the moment.  Both of them told me that it went as well as it could yesterday with inserting the port.  Gram just seemed to be tired as expected.  When I had called last night she was a sleep.  Sometime around the 5th of October I will be driving up there to vist with my Grandmother.  Can't wait to get on the road and go visit with her for awhile.  My Mother has to leave Pennsylvania this weekend to go back to Virginia to help my sister.  So I will probably miss her by the time I get up there to PA.  Hopefully after visiting with my Grandmother I will be able to drive down to Virginia to visit with my Mother, my Sister and her husband, and my newborn neice Addison Gracie.  Can't wait to meet the beautiful new bundle of joy.  Keep my Grandmother in your thoughts and prayers...  Thankyou for all of the prayers you sent earlier.  The Beautiful Light of Energy you all sent her shows great strength in yesterday.  So again I thankyou all for the prayers sent and prayers to come. 

Much Love and Light, Lil Red (Rachel)

This is it, cure for cancer time. Are you excited?

I know this amazing woman in Los Angeles who had cancer by the age of 21. Her parents owned a pizza parlor and she ate pizza, soda and bread all the time. High intake of milk, meat, processed salt, processed white flour, and processed sugars are top cancer causes. She changed her diet and now she's in peak health and almost 40. Cancer and tumors present in the body indicates a suppressed immune system mostly due to diet and toxins in your environment.

The A.M.A. represents cancer as this incurable beast when in reality it's much more controllable than we have been led to believe. For instance, the American Cancer Society does not recommend that you avoid eating such things as nitrates, a common food additive found in most meat that is known to be cancer causing. Our food is loaded with things that cause cancer and deprived of the cancer preventing vitamins. It seems like there is constantly people raising money for cancer research. Where does it all go? I had a woman call me on accident and I decided to talk to her. She was calling for a number of where to donate her hair to cancer patients. Her hair would go to a chemo patient. See, now, chemo is totally unnecessary in a majority of cases and damages the body so that it can't recover. People have good intentions that get thrown into a pool of bad science and it ends up doing no real good.

So they just keep raising money and say “We’re working on it, we’re getting close”. Truth of the matter is the last thing modern medicine cured was Polio…in the 50’s. They are not trying to cure you. They are trying to make money. Who makes more money than drug companies? They are at the top of the Fortune 500s. It makes no sense if they were trying to make you well. Drug companies are the bane of the American people, sucking us dry. They have found anti-depressants and other prescription drugs in tap water and streams. We are forever altering nature by our actions. We must stop the madness and go natural and sustainable. Pre-industrial revolution.

The Answer to Cancer
Has Been Known for Many Years!

http://www.1cure4cancer.com/

Vitamin B17 was the subject of great controversy over 20 years ago when some of the world's top scientists claimed that when consumed, the components of certain raw fruit seeds make it 100% impossible to develop cancer and will kill existing cancer in most cases.

The pharmaceutical companies pounced on this claim immediately and demanded that FDA studies be conducted. The results of these studies are found on this site and in a book called "World Without Cancer", by G. Edward Griffin. To order the book call 877-479-3466.

Vitamin B17, also know as Laetrile and Amygdalin is found in most fruit seeds, namely apricot seeds. The apricot seed was claimed as the cure for all cancers over 35 years ago.

It was even more strongly claimed that when one eats about 7 apricot seeds per day they can never develop cancer, just as one can never get scurvy if they have an orange every day, or pellagra if they have some B vitamins every day.

The pharmaceuticals companies together with the medical establishment pushed the FDA into making it illegal to sell "raw" apricot seeds or vitamin B17 with information about its effects on cancer. Even to this day, you can't get raw apricot seeds in your health food store, only the sun dried ones which have all the important enzymes killed off.

Pharmaceutical companies only conduct studies on patented chemicals they invent so that at the end of their study, if the drug gets approved, they have sole rights on its sale. (They make back tons more than the mere 250 million that they invested) They never do studies on foods that can't be patented and that can be sold by any supermarket.

The information on this site is not just for preventing cancer, it is for those that have cancer now and are on chemo or radiation at this moment, as well as for those who have cancer but haven't started any conventional methods yet.

Most of the people that already have cancer clusters in their body, who eat the apricot seeds and/or take the vitamin b17 in tablet form show near to complete tumor regression. Although cancer patients may get rid of their cancer, they also have the problem of the organ damage that the cancer has caused.

This is another issue where other herbs and remedies are necessary for proper organ regeneration. Of course when a person's body is completely eaten up by cancer, the apricot seeds and its extract (laetrile and vitamin b17) would only prolong their life many times longer than chemotherapy and might not completely save them.

However in many cases high levels of the injectable laetrile will help a great deal with the pain.

The information that you're about to read will guide you in how you can guarantee a nearly cancer free life or help your body get rid of cancer if you have it.

Cancer Cures


Are Abundant in nature. These cures are, of course, outside the control of mainstream medicine and they are all labeled "quackery" by the National Cancer Institute and most Western doctors. Such cures include Amazon herbs (like graviola), licorice root, oxygen therapy, sunlight therapy, the injection of phytochemicals from spirulina directly in cancer tumors, the use of fucoidan supplements (which are extracted from sea vegetables), antineoplastins (pioneered by Dr. Burzynski), phytochemicals found in apricot pits (laetrile) and a long list of other natural therapies that both prevent and reverse cancer in many forms.

Foods Containing B17 (Nitrilosides)


Vitamin B17 appears in abundance in untamed nature. Because B17 is bitter to the taste, in man's attempt to improve tastes and flavors for his own pleasure, he has eliminated bitter substances like B17 by selection and cross-breeding. It can be stated as a general rule that many of the foods that have been domesticated still contain the vitamin B17 in that part not eaten by modem man, such as the seeds in apricots. Listed below is an evaluation of some of the more common foods. Keep in mind that these are averages only and that specimens vary widely depending on variety, locale, soil, and climate.

The Myth of Sunscreen


This one is big. This is their game. They lie to you and then sell you something expensive that you have to use frequently. It again comes down to proper nutrition and natural remedies as it always does. If you don't have an aloe plant I'd recommend you get one. They grow well and easy.

I just read about how sun screens give you cancer by blocking Vitamin D absorption through the skin and because they contain toxic ingredients like parabens and PG. This all soaks into your skin and leaves petroleum and toxic residues in whatever water you are in. Sun screens are a drug. They have "active ingredients" labeled as they do a drug. Those ingredients soak right in causing cell damage and cancer.

Then I open People Magazine and they are selling 70 SPF lotion. 70 SPF.........Way more than you need. Marketed in a magazine that millions of woman read. The companies who carry these ads should be held equally responsible. They are lying, false advertising and that is illegal in this country. But we all know that corporations are allowed to break the law while the FTC and FDA routinely sue people who recommend cheap effective cures.

It's amazing that this is so wrong. A country (not sure which one) just funded a major study into Vitamin D. Vitamin D prevents cancer. If you do a study of people with cancer you will find they have Vit. D deficiencies. This explains a bit about the American Cancer Society and how they have no interest in preventing cancer, only treating it in expensive ways. We never had sunscreen before 50 years ago. Did they run from tree to tree avoiding the sun? Of course not. The sun is very vital to health. Also sunlight hitting your eyes is very healthy. Try not to always block the sun with glasses.

A World Without Cancer - The Story Of Vitamin B17






http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=4312930190281243507





This movie cracks the nut wide open. One in 3 women get cancer in their lifetime and 1 in 2 men get cancer in their lifetime these days. Tons of things have changed in the past century so it's hard to pin it down. But what it comes down to is this. Nature equips nature for cancer. You fight off cancer all the time. Your pancreas does it for you. Thank your pancreas. *applause* Nature gave you a back up in vitamin B17. When dogs and cats are sick they go outside and eat grass. They seek grass rich in B17. They can smell it out. Animals in nature don't get cancer. Caribou don't get cancer. The native Americans that eat the Caribou don't get cancer. 100% no cancer and they eat salmon and caribou almost exclusively. It's the nitrilocide compounds in the grasses they eat. Same stuff in apple seeds an apricot seeds. B17. B17. B17.





Hoxsey - How Healing Becomes A Crime





http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5528328984547372206&q=hoxsey&hl=en




This documentary concerns Harry M. Hoxsey, the former coal miner whose family's herbal recipe has brought about claims of a cancer cure. All starting in 1924 with his first clinic, he expanded to 17 states by the mid 1950s, along the way constantly battling organized medicine that labeled him a charlatan. Hoxsey's supporters point out he was the victim of arrests, or "quackdowns" spearheaded by the proponents of established medical practices. Interviews of patients satisfied with the results of the controversial treatment are balanced with physicians from the FDA and the AMA. A clinic in Tijuana, Mexico claims an 80% success rate, while opponents are naturally skeptical. What is apparent is that cancer continues to be one of humankind's more dreaded diseases, and that political and economic forces dominate research and development.

http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=-2793380650380830725&hl=en




Jason Vale, Champion arm wrestler has fought and cured cancer 3 times through eating raw apple and apricot seeds that contain a little known vitamin B17. The Big Pharmaceutical giants don't want people to know this little fact so they have encouraged the FDA to ban the sale of raw apricot or Vitamin B17 ~ Amygdalin Laetrile as it is also known. You can however order the seeds online from other countries. Search the web... there are endless testimonials of persons that have sent various cancers into complete remission because of these little seeds. God Bless you... there is always a way to LIFE in his Kingdom!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



This article gives a good low-down on the politics of cancer "research". The Cancer Industry has a perfect crime set up. They have invented an "incurable disease" that only they can treat their expensive ways that inevitably kill most people. Meanwhile they know it's curable and rake in billions every year to research it more and more and more. It is circular logic. The cancer cures are towards the bottom. They have done statistics on patients that receive conventional treatments and patients that underwent no treatment. You were statistically better off with NO TREATMENT.


New science proves that cancer is reversible, but organized medicine insists that cancer cannot be cured

by Mike Adams
www.newstarget.com
Originally published August 3 2004


Fascinating new research is showing that cancer is reversible. A cloning experiment conducted on cancer cells showed that those very same cells can revert to healthy cells and result in the creation of a healthy organism, free of cancer. This is ground-breaking new research on cancer because it shows that malignancy is not the inevitable fate of cancer cells.

There's more to this than you might suspect. The official position on cancer by the National Cancer Institute and organized medicine has long been that cancer is not reversible -- once a person has cancer, they can never be cured. In fact, the word "cure" has typically been grounds for a lawsuit by the FDA (or certainly the oppression or regulation of any therapy making such a claim). It's a convenient position by organized medicine, because as long as they can get people to believe the idea that cancer cannot be cured, they can outlaw all anti-cancer therapies based on the idea that since there is no such thing as a cure, anything claiming to offer a cure must be quackery.

It's circular reasoning, of course, based on a faulty premise that has now been proven false by this new scientific research. Cancer cells can revert to healthy cells, and healthy organisms can be produced from malignant cancer cells.

You probably won't hear much about this in the popular press or from the National Cancer Institute. This scientific finding is incompatible with the commonly held beliefs of those in charge of cancer research and cancer propaganda. And, as is common in modern medicine, any scientific evidence that is incompatible with their current beliefs is simply tossed aside and ignored. See, modern medicine isn't really about the search for scientific truth; it's about the search for selective truth -- any sort of truth that agrees with their current belief systems and supports their financial interests. In that sense, modern medicine is more like a religion. It is based on a series of dogmatic beliefs that don't hold water under scientific scrutiny. The hard science says that cancer cells can revert to healthy cells, but the industry says cancer cannot be reversed.

This is not new information for naturopathic physicians, Chinese medical practitioners, and holistic nutritionists -- we've known for a long time that cancer is reversible. In fact, cancer is one of the diseases that is the easiest to reverse. And because this website does not sell any products whatsoever, under free speech guidelines, I can tell you the truth about cancer, and state without qualification that there are many cures for cancer that are both well proven and readily available to those suffering from this chronic disease.

Cancer Cures

These cures are, of course, outside the control of mainstream medicine and they are all labeled "quackery" by the National Cancer Institute and most Western doctors. Such cures include Amazon herbs (like graviola), licorice root, oxygen therapy, sunlight therapy, the injection of phytochemicals from spirulina directly in cancer tumors, the use of fucoidan supplements (which are extracted from sea vegetables), antineoplastins (pioneered by Dr. Burzynski), phytochemicals found in apricot pits (laetrile) and a long list of other natural therapies that both prevent and reverse cancer in many forms.

The bottom line is that science is now proving that cancer is reversible, thereby verifying something that the natural healing community has both known and practiced for literally thousands of years. In time, perhaps western medicine will pull its head out of the dark ages and come to recognize that the human body is a remarkable healer. It can conquer cancer and other chronic diseases if simply given the chance and the proper nutrients. The cure for cancer exists right now, today, and it is available to those who are willing to recognize it.

Cancer is the perfect racket


You create this image of a disease that isn't really accurate. Then you get people to fear it by not informing them how to cure these ailments and letting them die and treating them with horrible methods to make think people think it's impossible to cure because those chemicals and techniques also poison you and make it much worse. Then you take in more money each year to "look for the cure". The last thing they cured was Polio. There is no money in curing disease. They figured that out. Take health in YOU OWN HANDS.
I'll give you a cure for cancer, *bam* Eating the inner core of an Apricot seed or Apple seed. Now how many millions of dollars did that take me to figure out? I'm not saying that organizations that raise money are wrong or bad, but it's a rat race. They could spend their money and energy in other more productive ways.

(There's some poor quality sound in 2 places).

The Illusion Of Disease
By Mike Adams
3-14-5


There is a curious tendency in conventional medicine to label a set of symptoms as a disease. For example, I recently spotted a poster touting a new drug for osteoporosis. It was written by a drug company and it said this: "Osteoporosis is a disease that causes weak and fragile bones." The poster went on to say that you need a particular drug to counteract this "disease."

Yet the language is all backward. Osteoporosis is not a disease that causes weak bones. Osteoporosis is the name given to a diagnosis of weak bones. In other words, the weak bones happened first, and then the diagnosis followed.

Another drug company defines osteoporosis as "the disease that causes bones to become thinner." Again, the cause and effect are reversed. And that's how drug companies want people to think about diseases and symptoms: First you "get" the disease, then you are "diagnosed" just in time to take an expensive new drug for the rest of your life.

But it's all hogwash. There is no such disease as osteoporosis. It's just a name for a pattern of symptoms that indicate you've let your bones get fragile. And to treat it, western doctors will give you prescriptions for drugs that claim to make your bones less brittle.

We should really call it Brittle Bones Disease, and describe the treatment in plain language - exercise, vitamin D, mineral supplements with calcium and strontium, natural sunlight, and the avoidance of substances like soft drinks, white flour, and added sugars, which strip away bone mass.

Diabetes is another condition given a complex name that puts its solution out of reach of the average patient. Type 2 diabetes isn't technically a disease. It's just a natural metabolic side effect of consuming refined carbohydrates and added sugars in large quantities without engaging in regular physical exercise.

The name "diabetes" is meaningless to the average person. It should be called Excessive Sugar Disease. If it were called Excessive Sugar Disease, the solution to it would be rather apparent.

Cancer is another disease named after its symptom. To this day, most doctors and patients still believe that cancer is a physical thing: a tumor. In reality, a tumor is only a side effect of cancer, not its cause. A tumor is simply a physical manifestation of a cancer pattern that is expressed by the body.

When a person "has cancer," what they really have is a sluggish or suppressed immune system. And that would be a far better name for the disease: Suppressed Immune System Disorder.

If cancer were actually called that, it would seem ridiculous to try to cure it by cutting out tumors and destroying the immune system with chemotherapy. These are the two most popular treatments for cancer, and they do nothing to support the patient's immune system or prevent future occurrences. That's exactly why most people who undergo chemotherapy or the removal of tumors end up with yet more cancer down the road.

The cure for cancer already exists, and it's found in every human body. Your body kills cancer cells as a routine daily task, and it has done it thousands of times in your lifetime.

All we have to do is stop poisoning our bodies with cancer-causing chemicals and start feeding ourselves the materials our bodies need to beat chronic disease. Instead of searching for new technological cures, our money and time would be better spent making people aware of the existing cures and prevention strategies available right now.

Here's another example: high cholesterol. Conventional medicine says that high cholesterol is caused by a chemical imbalance in the liver, the organ that produces cholesterol. Thus the treatment is drugs (statin drugs) that inhibit the liver's production of cholesterol. Upon taking these drugs, the high cholesterol (the "disease") is regulated.

But the fatal flaw in this approach is once again evident: The symptom is not the cause of the disease. There is another cause, one that is routinely ignored by conventional medicine, doctors, drug companies, and even patients. The root cause of high cholesterol is primarily dietary. A person who eats foods that are high in saturated fats and hydrogenated oils will inevitably produce more bad cholesterol. It's simple cause and effect, not some bizarre behavior by the liver.

"There's a great deal of ego invested in the medical community, and they sure don't want to make health sound attainable to the average person."

====================

If the disease were accurately named, it would be called Fatty Food Choice Disease. That would make more sense to people. And the obvious solution to the disease would be to choose foods that aren't so fatty. Of course, that may be a bit of an oversimplification, since you have to distinguish between healthy fats and unhealthy fats. But at least the name would give patients a better idea of what's actually going on.

Outside the United States , the names of diseases in other languages (such as Chinese) more accurately describe their actual causes. In western medicine, however, the name of the disease obscures the root cause. That makes all diseases sound far more complex and mysterious than they really are.

That's a shame, because the treatments and cures for virtually all chronic diseases are actually quite simple and can be described in plain language. Preventing and reversing these diseases only requires language that describes things like making different food choices, getting more natural sunlight, drinking more water, engaging in regular physical exercise, avoiding specific toxins, supplementing your diet, and so on.

There is a degree of arrogance in the language of western medicine, and this arrogance propagates the separation between doctors and their patients. Separation never results in healing. In order to create healing, we must bring together healers and patients by using plain language that real people understand and that real people can act upon.

There's a great deal of ego invested in the medical community, and they sure don't want to make health sound attainable to the average person. Making the language of disease complicated keeps it out of reach of the public.

But health is attainable by every single person. It isn't rocket science. It's not complex. And it doesn't require a prescription. Health is easy, it is straightforward, and it is direct. And, for the most part, it is available free of charge if you invoke the healing power of sunlight, pure water, stress reduction, exercise, and healthy food choices.

Cheap, safe drug kills most cancers


It is already used for other illnesses and has been proven safe but I don't think this has gone through human trials though. Very promising. We are getting close to really understanding the mechanism of cancer and not just saying "Yeah, we're getting close" to finding a cure. There are many cures fr cancer, you only need look or ask me


DCA CANCER CURE

Cheap, safe drug kills most cancers
Andy Coghlan, New Scientist
January 20, 2007



It sounds almost too good to be true: a cheap and simple drug that kills almost all cancers by switching off their “immortality”. The drug, dichloroacetate (DCA), has already been used for years to treat rare metabolic disorders and so is known to be relatively safe.
It also has no patent, meaning it could be manufactured for a fraction of the cost of newly developed drugs.
Evangelos Michelakis of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, and his colleagues tested DCA on human cells cultured outside the body and found that it killed lung, breast and brain cancer cells, but not healthy cells. Tumours in rats deliberately infected with human cancer also shrank drastically when they were fed DCA-laced water for several weeks.
DCA attacks a unique feature of cancer cells: the fact that they make their energy throughout the main body of the cell, rather than in distinct organelles called mitochondria. This process, called glycolysis, is inefficient and uses up vast amounts of sugar.
Until now it had been assumed that cancer cells used glycolysis because their mitochondria were irreparably damaged. However, Michelakis’s experiments prove this is not the case, because DCA reawakened the mitochondria in cancer cells. The cells then withered and died (Cancer Cell, DOI: 10.1016/j.ccr.2006.10.020).
Michelakis suggests that the switch to glycolysis as an energy source occurs when cells in the middle of an abnormal but benign lump don’t get enough oxygen for their mitochondria to work properly (see diagram). In order to survive, they switch off their mitochondria and start producing energy through glycolysis.
Crucially, though, mitochondria do another job in cells: they activate apoptosis, the process by which abnormal cells self-destruct. When cells switch mitochondria off, they become “immortal”, outliving other cells in the tumour and so becoming dominant. Once reawakened by DCA, mitochondria reactivate apoptosis and order the abnormal cells to die.
“The results are intriguing because they point to a critical role that mitochondria play:
they impart a unique trait to cancer cells that can be exploited for cancer therapy,” says Dario Altieri, director of the University of Massachusetts Cancer Center in Worcester.
The phenomenon might also explain how secondary cancers form. Glycolysis generates lactic acid, which can break down the collagen matrix holding cells together. This means abnormal cells can be released and float to other parts of the body, where they seed new tumours.
DCA can cause pain, numbness and gait disturbances in some patients, but this may be a price worth paying if it turns out to be effective against all cancers. The next step is to run clinical trials of DCA in people with cancer. These may have to be funded by charities, universities and governments: pharmaceutical companies are unlikely to pay because they can’t make money on unpatented medicines. The pay-off is that if DCA does work, it will be easy to manufacture and dirt cheap.
Paul Clarke, a cancer cell biologist at the University of Dundee in the UK, says the findings challenge the current assumption that mutations, not metabolism, spark off cancers. “The question is: which comes first?” he says.

Chemo drugs 'destroy brain cells'


Chemotherapy can cause severe side effects


Drugs used to destroy cancer cells may actually be more harmful to healthy cells in the brain, research suggests.
A team from New York's University of Rochester found several types of key brain cell were highly vulnerable to the drugs.
They say it might help explain side effects such as seizures and memory loss associated with chemotherapy - collectively dubbed 'chemo brain'.
The research is published in the Journal of Biology.

This is the first study that puts chemo brain on a sound scientific footing

Dr Mark Noble
University of Rochester


Drug therapy for cancer can prompt a wide range of neurological side effects, even the onset of dementia.
But they were thought not to be directly linked to the drug treatment itself.
Instead, some doctors have put them down to the patient's vulnerable psychological state.

The latest study found that dose levels typically used when treating patients killed 40% to 80% of cancer cells - but 70% to 100% of human brain cells grown in the lab, and caused serious damage to brain cells when given to mice. Several types of healthy brain cell continued to die for at least six weeks after exposure.

Common drugs tested
Lead researcher Dr Mark Noble said: "This is the first study that puts chemo brain on a sound scientific footing, in terms of neurobiology and cellular
biology."

The Rochester team carried out tests with three drugs used to treat a wide range of cancers: carmustine, cisplatin and cytosine arabinoside. All three drugs were toxic to several types of brain cell whose job is to repair other cells in the brain - even at very low concentrations. They also killed off oligodenrocyte cells, which play a key role in the transmission of messages around the nervous system.

The researchers suggest damage to cells in the hippocampus, which is responsible for memory and learning, is most likely to explain chemo brain symptoms. Professor John Toy, Cancer Research UK¿s medical director, said: "The doses of therapy needed to treat cancer while leaving the body's healthy cells as unharmed as possible is a fine balance judged by experienced specialists.

*---Translation: “We have to carefully measure the poison we’re giving you so that you don’t die. We’re good at it because if you die, we stop getting money”
"They aim to maximize benefits and minimize damage. Unfortunately side-effects can include toxicity to the brain.

*---Brain Toxicity seems unimportant to this “Cancer Specialist”. The body is not Berlin in 1943, you can’t just kill indiscriminately. These are the same people that loved putting leeches on us to drain the humors. This is one of their new ideas.
"This research in mice may hopefully suggest new ways of researching how this toxicity might be overcome.

*---Instead of realizing that Chemo is not the way, they want to spend more money, the name of the game, on “research” instead of looking upon successes all over the world in Alternative cancer research.
"It is important to remember, however, that all presently available cancer treatments have gone through extensive clinical trials to ensure that their benefits outweigh unwanted effects.

*---This is the assumption of every Western doctor. “The research says this”. How long have these drugs been around? How about long term studies? The drug regulation bureaus in this country are atrocious. Aspirin is on the market now having never been approved. Oh guess what, it dissolves your stomach lining, but Bayer aspirin is still allowed to suggest taking it everyday.
"No patient should stop their treatment because of this research."

*---And then we come to the point. After the research to confirms the Chemo drugs carpet bomb the cells in your body and do heavy damage to the brain we get the AMA claptrap “YOU SHALL NOT SEEK ALTERNATIVES”. This is the standard in America. STAND IN LINE. TAKE THIS PILL.

The Fire in Georgia has not yet been contained.  Smoke fills the air over hundreds of miles.  Firefighters have been working around the clock.  The Okeefenokee Wildlife Park is in danger.  Schools are closed due to all of the people seeking shelter from the fire.  What can we do to help?
