Kamara Taylor: Black Women & The Fight Against Cancer

With crime being ever so rampant in minority communities, we tend to overlook the biggest threat and killer that continues to destroy homes and the family dynamic.  This terrible menace is CANCER.

As Angelina Jolie has become the face of the BRCA 1 gene by removing both breasts to prevent the likelihood of cancer occurring, most African American women are the largest carriers of the triple negative gene.  This form of cancer is not associated directly with the hormonal characteristics of developing cancer, but genetics.

My mother, Minnie D. Taylor, was diagnosed with stage four triple negative stage breast cancer on March 27, 2013 at the age of 50 and was dead by July 8, 2013.  Being made aware of this deadly disease goes beyond the monthly self-exams that women are informed to do and the knowledge required goes beyond the text book knowledge from the oncologist.

Sometimes medicine remains as much as a big box business as Wal-Mart or Costco and the merchandise is at the expensive of our loved ones lives.  Just as Henrietta Lacks and her HeLa cells have been used to pioneer medicine, many of our loved ones are medical guinea pigs for eager medical students, burnt out residents and overzealous attendees.

Cancer is not a new disease; however its rampant spread in the African American community has and should raise eyebrows.  We also need more awareness on how we are affected firsthand as cancer’s ugly head continues to sphere its way into our communities and is just as rampant as crime.

The pharmaceutical companies and the oncology departments are cancerous, as well.  They continue to capitalize off a disease that we lack knowledge about and refuse to educate ourselves on.  Please let’s make ourselves aware so that we can prevent our families from inexplicably losing another Minnie D. Taylor ever so soon.

  1. It’s a shame, after over a Century of actual cure for cancer, which usually has nothing to do with Drugs or Chemo, Modern Medicine is still looking for health in a bottle.

    Cancer was cured in the U.S. prior to 1913 and all the doctors and holistic practitioners, who actually cured “Cancer” were victimized by the American Medical Association (AMA), the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and the actual cures were suppressed because the remedies cost pennies on the dollar. The Drug Companies, or the Medical Industry, who seek profits over cures for health, cannot patent those remedies or cures.

    People who cured Cancer;
    1. Dr. William F Koch, Identified Cause and Cure of Cancer, 1914-1920
    2. Dr. Royal R Rife, cured every known and unknown disease from 1920 to mid-1930’s
    3. Dr. Max Gerson, Cured Cancer with Gerson Therapy 1928-1959, Institute still open
    4. Dr. Johanna Budwig, Cured Cancer in 1951
    5. Harry Hoxsey, Cured worse cases of Internal and External Cancer from 1920’s to 1950’s
    6. Biochemists Dr. Ernst T Krebs and his son produced Vitamin B-17 in the 1950’s, which cured Cancer.
    7. Dr. Paul Goss, Master Iridologist of New Body Products does not treat Cancer specifically, but has restored the health of a number of people who had Cancer, using Herbs and change of diet.

    Don’t believe me, look up the facts for yourself and then change your diet to save your life.

  2. Thank You for this article. It profoundly weighs on my heart that Our People are trusting the WRONG DOCTORS when it comes to seeking remedies for this affliction. If only I had the billions in profit from killing people that these Cancer Specialists have I'd scream it from the rafters every minute of the day:



    B17 (otherwise known as Laetrile and/or Amygdalin), Soursop, Bloodroot, Baking Soda, and of course PREVENTION. Plus? Never trusting these Deadly Quacks. Radiation CAUSES CANCER. CHEMO causes Cancer! Surgery only slows it down when dedicated, targeted Diet, Exercise and the above remedies (there are others PROVEN TO CURE CANCER!) – when this regimen pretty much guarantees a POWERFUL LIFE free of all disease.

    We didn't have these white people illnesses before we started eating like the Caveman, who lived in a climate that demanded massive meat eating lest the population starve during the winter. Dang. But I'm a regular person whom anyone reading this post has been carefully taught not only not to trust but not to RESEARCH THE TRUTH FOR THEMSELVES. Cause the 'truth'? That comes from Somebody else who puts every doctor to shame if that doctor spends his career killing people when they can be cured.

    Excellent for the beginner researcher, 'Cancer – The Forbidden Cures'. Also research the PROVEN DEADLINESS OF MAMMOGRAMS. How stupid is that to saturate soft breast tissue with regular r-a-d-i-a-t-i-o-n!!! Radiation bio-acumulates in soft tissue and it has been determined by the top nuclear physicists (but the rich ones don't publicize their findings) that even one x-ray is enough to cause Cancer at some time. So here they have women going back year after YEAR!

    Good Lord. The genocide they've caused.

  4. JOHN BURNS' POST IS ON THE MONEY!!! Can't leave a reply to his comment but don't MISS IT! MWAH!!!!!

  5. My deeeepest sympathy and EMPATHY for your loss of your mother. I, say that because I, too, lost my Beloved father. If only I'd known then what I've learned NOW?

    He'd most likely still be alive.

    And no. Having the 'gene' does NOT cause Cancer. Eating like a Caveman and using a slew of products full of over 800 UNTESTED toxins that interact in ways nobody knows – THAT'S WHAT CAUSES CANCER. Please, Beautiful Black Kamara, don't lop your breast off like that white girl Angelina. Don't ever let the Devil cut you open…

  6. My understanding of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and the health insurance marketplace is there are a few insurance plans offered called a platinum, gold, silver, bronze, and catastrophic. All health insurance plans offered on the marketplace must offer as a minimum the same set of services called the “essential health benefits”. The silver plans are the plans which offer any cost-sharing reductions for which the person may qualify. The plan level guidelines are platinum is for someone in poor health, gold is for fair health, silver for good health, bronze for excellent, and catastrophic for persons 30 years of age or younger.
    Platinum is lowest deductible and highest premium, bronze lowest premium and highest deductible. Several private insurance companies will offer the various plans to the individual. Inquiries about specific plan coverage or premiums to be paid are made directly to the private insurance company. The person should select a plan based on their needs, and the network of doctors, services, and hospitals offered and not the lowest premium. Based on household income and family size, many people are expected to qualify for tax credits and/or cost-sharing reductions. Tax credits can be used to help pay the monthly insurance premium. If a person qualifies for a government sponsored plan like Medicaid or Chips, those will also be offered to the individual as an insurance plan option.
    The “essential health benefits” offered by the Affordable Care Act includes prescription drugs, lab work and blood tests, preventive services like counseling, screenings, and vaccines, doctor and clinic visits, emergency services, overnight stays in the hospital, prenatal, maternity and pediatric services (including kids dental and vision), habilitative and rehabilitative services for persons with disabilities and chronic conditions, and mental health and substance use disorder services.
    Persons offered insurance coverage through their employer can shop the health insurance marketplace in search of a plan which might be deemed as a more “affordable” plan. Open enrollment dates are October 1, 2013 through March 31, 2014. “Exemptions” from health insurance coverage are available for those that qualify. All of this information is available on the healthcare.gov website.
