Savannah Aulger will never have snapshots with her father on her first birthday, on Christmas or at a school event.

Pulmonary Fibrosis is an Idiopathic disease. NO known cause NO known cure. It is rare even though about 200.000 people in the US have been diagnosed. More people die from PF than from breast cancer, but there is very little money for research.

Watched the video. Fellow leaves behind an amazing wife and family.....makes one mindful of the ‘it’s not what you take with you, it’s what you leave behind.’
This doctor developed a cancer cure on his own. The ONLY reason they have not approved it is because the FDA is on record as saying they will NEVER approve a therapy not owned by a member of the government/corporate medical complex.
They have prosecuted the guy MULTIPLE times, and he has won every single time. While he was on remand awaiting trial one time, the FDA obtained patents on compounds HE HAD ALREADY PATENTED.

His patients love him.
This documentary is well-worth watching.
