About Kaiulani Facciani

My journey with breast cancer began in August 2007. After a roller coaster ride from hell, I thought it was over after 6 months. But 5 years later, it reared it’s ugly head with a frightening terminal diagnosis of Stage IV metastatic breast cancer. By 2012, tumors had crushed several vertebrae in my neck and spine and split my sacroiliac joint apart. I lost the use of my legs and one arm. I had lesions on my liver, lungs, and lymph nodes. Doctors said I likely wouldn’t walk again and would likely be dead within weeks. With nothing to lose, I threw everything I could at healing. I employed a strict naturopathic regimen, received chemotherapy and radiation, and meditated on spiritual healing. I worked hard to rebuild joints and muscles and survive the cancer and toxic medicine. 13 months after diagnosis, most of my tumors were gone and I had regained 99% mobility. Although still considered terminal, I felt like I was going to live forever.

Then, Halloween of 2013, they found a rare and dangerous type of brain metastases with an average survival of 2.8 months after diagnosis. The tumors were inoperable, nor were they eligible for radiation, most chemotherapies couldn’t penetrate, and the blood-brain barrier prevented the targeted immunotherapy that had been keeping me alive from entering my brain to kill the cancer within. I had to get creative.

I’m still alive… for now… and I am NEAD (No Evidence of Active Disease) !!!!!

I am indebted to all healers who have helped me on my path… even those who, at first look, appeared negative and obstructionist. I learned from them as well. By sharing my journey, I wish to encourage and empower you to take charge of your life and to defeat the obstacles that may face you. My path is just that… what I chose as being right for me. Perhaps reading it will spark you to take note of your own experiences in a new way. One that allows you to incorporate the lessons you are learning into a formula for positive change. Only you truly knows what is best for you. No one will ever care as much as you about saving you, you have a lot to live for… go to it!
