Oh, yeah, just for a second here.
Can we all honor Frank Cousineau and Lorraine Rosenthal for their 44 years of bringing options and cancer treatment to thousands of cancer patients? They've given their life for this.
And when we realize there's 14 million cancer patients in active treatment in the US today, God knows we need some options beyond what they're doing right now. So, Frank and Lorraine, we honor you.
Patrick, thank you very much. Thank you.
Thank you. OK. And, Harold, I think we are ready to go.
Perfect. Thank you. Ladies, gentlemen.
It is a real honor and a privilege today at the 44th annual Cancer Control Society convention. Labor Day weekend here at Universal Hotel in Los Angeles to have Dr. Patrick Quillin with us again. He's been a frequent presenter over the years. One of the things that I like to tell people about him is, of course, his knowledge and experience is excellent. He used to be the head of nutrition at Cancer Treatment Centers of America. And when I talk to patients when he was there, I think the outcomes were better. But that's that's another story. But one of the things that I particularly appreciate about him and you can look up the technical stuff in the in the biographies is the fact that in his books, his presentations, he provides practical solutions to everyday problems for for patients that they can implement on a fairly easy basis. So, Patrick, very happy to have you here again. Thank you. Thank you, Frank.
Yeah. Pleasure to be here. Thank you very much.

It takes the opportunity when the host defenses are down to infect the host. And so one of the best ways to make yourself relatively bulletproof is nutrition. And so I'm going to spend a great deal of time talking about how the cancer patient can resurrect host defense mechanisms and to dovetail with Doug's talk. My mother, 88 years old, lives in a 100 year old farmhouse in Illinois. Two years ago, she developed pneumonia in the wintertime. She forgot to start taking her vitamin D hospital for a couple of days. A year later, she developed shingles, three months of purgatory, exquisite pain. I went, visited and noticed that there was black mold in the ceiling and one at one of her rooms. We did mold amelioration remediation, got rid of the mold. She's doing much better. She's weeding, gardening, shoveling her own snow. The point
