Rebecca Lalk

Bio: Wife of a cattle farmer and a mother of four. I was diagnosed with Fibrosing Mediastinitis, a rare life threatening disease in 2002 with the life expectancy of 10 years. 15 years later I am living the life my doctors said I would never have. I have been referred to as a walking miracle and it is only because of God that I am where I am today.

    Systemic mycoses are not rare. I am lecturing next month to integrative oncologists on the fungal component to cancers-each being a systemic mycoses. Are you on prophylactic antifungal drugs? Are you aware that fungi, histo included, parasitize humans and must be fed? Without grains, they can be slowed tremendously…..Please let me know if I may assist! Doug

    I just finished reading your book, which I received from my daughter-in-law Angie. It was very good and I appreciated your honesty about dealing with all of the struggles. Your insights into your faith walk are inspiring. I am praying for your continued strength and courage, and for your family.

    Rebecca, I was just diagnosed and sent home with instructions to my family to try and keep me comfortable until I’m gone. My family went to work and found mention of you and your book. It was my first ray of hope. Thank you for sharing your life and struggles and most of all your faith in God that through it all, he is with us. I am currently on a waiting list to go to Vanderbilt hospital. With hopes that I won’t have to wait all the way until my appointment, August 15th.

    I am 28 and was recently diagnosed with FM due to histoplasmosis this month after a long battle since November. I have seen so many doctors of all different specialties! I to went to the university of Iowa and got no help, I was to my point and thought id never find a doctor that was going to listen to me and I would have to live with this. I ended up going to mayo clinic at the end of May and they really took over and did a whole work up and found a diagnosis which makes me happy but scared at the same time! I also have a blood clot in my internal jugular and down my SVC, and have ben living with SVC syndrome since November. I showed no improvement with blood thinners and will be having my first stent placed on Monday at mayo clinic which ironically is the same day that your book with be arriving! I look forward to learning more about your journey!
