It’s been a while…news news news in my life…

It’s been a while since I’ve been blogging.  I’m getting started again.  I’ve been on a waiting period…God put me in the classroom and taught me some lessons on patience, trust and relinquish.  In trusting that he has my back..and as long as I learn the lessons through my healing…I will conquer this!

As many of you may know, two years ago I was diagnosed with an interesting type of tumor, called ameloblastoma.  I was scared, freaked out, and the surgery was going to be taking out a quarter of my jaw (jawbone), 3 surgeries, around $150,000, nine months out of the game…no talking (and that’s bad for me, as I’m a fiery Latina and love to talk lol)

Then taking my hip bone…reconstructing my jaw…then another surgery to implant teeth…you get the picture.  There is no solution for ameloblastoma other than surgery.  Hm……but there is a solution.

I fought and fought and fought the battle trying to find a plan B.  Maybe a holistic method, maybe Kris Karr’s method, maybe Dr. Young…but this diagnosis was so rare that I this tumor is like an organ, not toxicity that can be cleansed with alkalinity or holistic methods.

Then a miracle arrived.  A Dr. who had a specific treatment out of the USA to rebuild bone, comparable to reverse osteoporosis.  So I trusted.  Without seeing results, I trusted.  And trusted.  And then trusted some more.  Then I started coaching with an amazing life coach who guided me through healing…not only wiping out the trauma from my emotional chaos from this disease…but helping me find the gift in previous situations in my life…

See…I’ve been a victim of abuse…and I had burried that deep inside.  I had to learn to forgive, learn the lessons…heal my emotional self.  I had to learn to stop victimizing myself and instead empowering myself to take my life to the next level and live my true mission in life.

It’s been two years that I’ve been taking this treatment, rare to man-kind but a life-saving process.  The first cat scan started to show positive results, six months ago, where we got to see a bit of new bone growing in the area of the tumor, which is unheard of.

However, we decided to wait six months and compare apples to apples, and take a cat scan again.  So…the moment of truth has arrived.  Today I went to take my blood tests so they would test every area of my body.  Next week I go for the catscan to see if the bone has grown out further.

Healing forward…


My word for the day is HEALING.  RELINQUISH.  TRUST.  and GRATITUDE.  Grateful to my friends and family for praying for me through these difficult times.  Grateful for the most incredible husband in the world.  He moved us back from Texas to LA so I could be closer to my family, the mountains, the sunshine and the sea…where I’m happiest…so i could heal faster.  He retired me so I would only work 10 hours a week and take my time to heal, be balanced, happy and fulfilled.

In the midst of all my challenge, I am the happiest girl in the world.  Thank you God, I would never change a thing in everything that’s happened.  There is always light after dark.  Thank you.

    I love that you looked for alternatives and found something, too many people put the trust in their doctors (Not that that is always bad, but there are alternatives). Good luck at your MRI. I have a strong feeling you will see more positive results!

    Hello Yvette,

    I happened to be on FB today, a rarity for me, and saw your blog on your healing process. I know we’ve not been in touch for a while; however, I felt I needed to reach out to you.

    You have always been, and still are, a living role model for whatever you are going through.

    I was diagnosed with a gastrointestinal stromal tumor last December. It was the size of a grapefruit, but did not show itself until, in late November, my stomach looked like I was three months pregnant. I am so grateful that my children are taking such good care of me, and as I started the healing process, my oncologist informed me that several years ago there was no medication for this, that not surgery, chemotherapy or radiation helped. It was considered a terminal disease. Within the last few years, they discovered medication that directs itself to the cells of the tumor only, so I am very fortunate. I am recovering from recent surgery, so like you, I am retired.

    I also blog about my healing journey on the above website, if you’re interested. And, my email is on the website if you’d like to contact me. I’m in L.A., so if you want to connect, please let me know.

    In the meantime, my prayers are with you, Dave, and your parents. Please give all of them my best.

      Gayook! This is guided my friend!

  12. R says:

    You will be healed. You love for people and their success is to strong to keep you down. The advisory attacked in area the area you were doing the most good, speaking and training people to better themselves. He does’t want anyone to reach their dreams and attacks anyone who help people do just that especially believers. Your coach is right on with helping you find those deep hurts and forgive the people who have hurt you. That is always the doorway that is left open just a crack and the devil pries it open with something that knocks us down. He hopes we will stay down, but because he was defeated at the cross 2000 years ago and is still defeated today you will be healed, speak and motivate people again. So God’s speed in your recovery.

  13. Yvette,

    You continue to be an inspiration to me and many others through leading with love. Thank you for sharing your gifts with me and the world. You bless me!


  14. Carl Yoder says:

    Wonderful example of “fight for what you believe in and never give up”! Thank you for sharing your story and being an inspiration to us all. God bless both you and Dave.

  15. I will pray for your continued healing through God’s grace.

    I admire your courage, determination, and faith!

    California, my original home (Ventura, CA)… Enjoy yourself there and have fun.

    Take care,

    Yvette, I have crossed paths with you over many years (WV, DSWA Leadership Retreats, etc) You are incredible. You are inspiration. You have incredible gifts to empower. It is no wonder that God gave us the recipe that we have the same gifts to heal ourselves and others through Jesus. Thank you for sharing your story. Praying for you. Kind regards, Kristi Lee

    • yvette says:

      Thanks Kristi…I really appreciate your kind words my lady…I believe God gave this to me as a gift so I’m wrapping up my problem as a present 🙂

  17. Sue Endres says:

    My prayers are with you Yvette, God does have a plan for you as He put your blog open directly as I opened my FB tonight? You see Yvette, I am a WV partner, I watched you and Dave on stage 3 and 1/2 years ago in Dallas. You were both So Inspirational to me. I have been a single Mom to 4 kids since June of 1999. My second and third are twin girls of 27 years old and single. My daughter Amber, was diagnosed 3 1/2 months ago with a very rare ovarian cancer, called Granulosa Cell Tumor, I am in Florida with my youngest daughter, who is a Senior in HS. The older 3 are in Madison WI The hardest thing for me is being so far away. But, your blog has really been an inspiration to me. God surely has put you and your blog before me for a reason, as another new Mother who lost her child to Cancer introduced a new Alternative trtmt. book just last evening. So, Yvette, I want to Thank You for all the detail and all of your time and dedication to research, because I am certainly going to refer to all of your alternative info. regarding Amber. Ashlee will be getting a body scan done early November, it is very rare, but seeing they are identical we feel she should be scanned. Again, you are in my Prayers!

    • yvette says:

      Thanks For sharing Sue…I truly feel I’m guided and part of the gift i’m getting form all this is the open door to homeopathy or alternative care. Follow kris Carr on her blog (google her) she has been with stage 4 incurable cancer for 10 years and although that is not curable, she has sustained it and succeeded!

      I know a couple very succesful doctors if you need additional referrals as well, one that helped my friend heal from brain cancer. Lots of love…

    As I mentioned previously, I’ve had four jaw replacements. It is not a pleasant experience at all. However, you do get beyond it. You have the right attitude to get beyond it. It was a tumor, but we are fortunate that it wasn’t one with much more serious characteristics. I do all my eating on on side of my mouth. I’ve done that for 35 years. I’m overweight, but grateful I can eat whatever I want. Life throws us all challenges. You’ve met one and now you move on. Just continue to be positive.
