Cancer Journey: Doug and Rochelle Burnett’s Battle with Gastroesophageal Junction Cancer
Play • 42 min

In this episode of The Moss Report Podcast, Doug and Rochelle Burnett of Des Moines, Iowa share their journey through a cancer diagnosis.

 

Doug was diagnosed with Stage III cancer of the GE Junction in March of 2019. Based in Iowa, they were given the treatment plan of radiation, chemo, and eventually surgery. Pursuing other options, he and Rochelle did research on what else was out there. They ended up at MD Anderson in Houston, Texas where Doug was given a grim prognosis. Stage IV and without much hope, the doctors didn’t have much to say to him in terms of working towards health. 

 

With some help from Dr. Moss, they found Dr. Robert Nagourney of the Nagourney Institute. Dr. Nagourney prescribed a custom chemo cocktail, which, when combined, saw Doug’s chances of survival greatly improved. Add to this some diet and lifestyle changes and a healthy helping of love, support, optimism, and determination, Doug Burnett is surviving, and thriving, well beyond any previous prognosis.
