Celebration of Peter’s successful treatment…
On 25th July, 2014 Peter was admitted to Hospital with excruciating pain… (Only the week before, he went to visit the doctor because of lower back pain which he thought was from a soccer injury months before.)
He had been up all night, because he just couldn’t sleep or rest from the pain. During that morning, it was just unbearable so his partner rushed him to the hospital and it was then, after doing all the tests, that the news was explained to him and his partner. . . . . “You have Multiple Myeloma and it has spread to 90% of your body!! It has badly eaten away your Pelvis, your bottom Spine and your two Femur’s on your upper legs . . . . . Peter I’m sorry, but you may never walk again ! Also,the normal life span for a person with this cancer is usually between 3-5 years.”
These were the words that he will never forget on that day . . . .
But at the moment, it was like a ‘change button was pushed’. He just laid there and replied “Doctor, you do whatever you need to, and I will do what I have too. . . The human brain is so powerful and the human spirit is strong AND I WILL BEAT THIS!”
He knew it would be a battle where there would be wins and losses along the way… however it was a win at the end that he visualised and believed in… He felt that this belief would get him through.
GIVING UP was NEVER an option . . . . . !!
He started to visualise healing within his body . . . Seeing those cancer cells been cleared from his body. He would do this day and night, morning and evening when he went to bed and laid down.
He also prayed with his strong faith in God…
Then one morning he woke up and started to walk around without pain!!
He believed it was his faith, together with the power of positive thinking that played a key role.
On the 9th October, he had a follow up with his doctors to see where his cancer was at . . . And he still gets emotional at the thought that when he was first diagnosed with Myeloma, his cancer blood count was 756! When they read out his blood results on that day, it was 1.5, less than 2. The doctor even stated that it basically didn’t show up . . .
He realised after researching people worldwide who, against all odds, BEAT CANCER COMPLETELY there were similarities around their mindset, attitude and response to their cancer…
On 1st January, 2015 his blood tests showed ‘cancer free’. So it was only six months earlier he went from some bad news and not a good situation regarding his body and health, to now being cancer free and walking!!
On 5th February, Peter’s birthday, he had a successful transplant… And as at April 2015, he is fully recovered from the treatment and ready to move to ‘normal’ life again after only 9 months!
And that is certainly something to celebrate!
Thank you Peter Di Prinzio for sharing your inspirational story and celebrating the success of your treatment,
With our love and warmest and sincere regards,
