BJORN’S ALS JOURNEY


 BJORN’S ALS JOURNEY

This is not easy for us, but terrible circumstances leave very little options open to us, so with friends and family we took the decision to set up a fund raising page for a very loving father of three, Bjorn Foxford.

Sadly  Bjorn was recently diagnosed with the terrifying neurodegenerative disease ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease this past summer of 2019.

For those that are not aware of what ALS is, it is a fast progressing neurodegenerative disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord, causing loss of muscle control. This eventually results in the loss of the ability to walk, the use of hands, speech, ability to swallow and eventually the loss of the ability to breath. People who are diagnosed with ALS get the grim news of having a survival period of only 2 to 5 years.

Bjorn, from a young age raised his eldest son as a single Dad who is now  21 years old. Together we have two little boys, aged 7 and 8. All Bjorns sons adore their Dad. The younger boys are still unaware of their Dads illness...

For those that know Bjorn can attest that he is a hard working, ethical, smart, kind hearted, giving, and above all, the most amazing father and a loving partner.

Since Bjorn's diagnosis, he has been very proactive and is taking all measures to fight this disease. So far he has traveled to the Sanoviv Medical Institution in Mexico to attend their neuro-program' for initial treatment. He  has also traveled to Salt Lake City to attend an ALS survivors conference to meet and speak to people that have been affected by ALS,  who have reversed the symptoms and have slowed and even stopped the progression of this debilitating disease. 

It is said by mainstream medicine that there is no cure for ALS, but there are people, well documented who have reversed this disease after getting the right treatment, such as Stem Cell treatment, IV Ozone therapy, and oxygen therapy. These life extending treatments are very expensive to access and usually they are not available close to home - there is the additional burden of traveling expenses. So much so, our personal savings are exhausted, including the generosity and savings of extended family. We are feeling so overwhelmed, that we now need to seek help from farther afield.

We ask that you join us, to help build a community and raise awareness  to save this amazing persons life.

We need monetary donations please. Large or small, all would be sincerely appreciated. If anything we ask that you would please share this story amongst your family and friends. It would be great if as many people as possible can get involved.
Bjorn is currently reasonably healthy, although he is showing early symptoms, he is young and has the will to fight this disease. Please donate what you can and  get involved. Help Bjorn prolong his life until a cure can be found. Let's give him hope. 

With Sincere Love and Gratitude,
Foxford/Chang Family



MESSAGE FROM BJORN’S MOM

ALS is a daunting neurological degenerative disease. There is no cure, and no treatment. It is considered as a death sentence in traditional (main stream) medicine.  The average life expectancy is 2 to 5 years. ALS patients lose their abilities to walk, to talk, to eat and to breathe.

Many research and trial treatment drugs have been done for over 40
years without any real breakthrough.  Recent stem cell studies (Nurown) and trials have been conducted for the past 25 years with promising efficacy.

Despite of all the aggressive lobbying pushing the FDA to approved the treatment by ALS activists and patients, Nurown is still in its third trial. Nurown will take years before it is approved for treatments under health care coverage. Simply ALS suffers have no time to wait.

Bjorn was diagnosed with this horrible disease this summer of 2019 at age 40 with 3 children, partner and a good successful career. His life was sunken into fear, despair, sadness, loneliness, hopelessness. A very dark place.

His hope for treatment was none and his survival rate was 2 to 5 years. This death sentence was haunting him for months.

With unrelenting desire to live and countless prayers, Bjorn
was blessed to receive support from his families and his work. Bjorn went to Sanoviv Medical Institute for alternative treatments.  Sanoviv gave Bjorn scientific base functional treatments, nutritional support, detoxifications, special supplements and psychological supports. Sanoviv approached ALS by treating the root cause of the disease. Bjorn actually has some symptoms reversed. Most of all, Bjorn has HOPE.

Then he attended ALS conference in Utah. He further witnessed the successful journeys and roadmaps of the 45 ALS survivors and warriors.  They have fought hard in their journeys and have survived 10 to 30 years since their painful diagnoses.

ALS IS NOT A DEATH SENTENCE.

Bjorn is on his journey to be the next 46th on survivor of ALS.  Bjorn continues his health regime assimilating Sanoviv treatments. He receives hyperbaric therapy, IV Ozone, PK protocol, special neuron support supplements, nutrition, care of a functional doctor and psychology support.

The next step of treatments is stem cell therapy and GAC injections to his wasted muscles.  These continuous treatments are expensive beyond his means and help from family. All these treatments are not offered or covered by Health Canada and the health system.  

Bjorn needs these treatments to survive and to stop the progression.

The optimal treatment results are at best within the 24 months. Time is of the essence.

Please help Bjorn to survive in funding his treatments by giving.  Please donate to his journey of survival.

Evelyn Spector ( Bjorn's Mum)
