But this is today"
A few years ago my brother in law Jim called us with a terrible announcement. Jack, the Doctor just gave me a death sentence, I have Esophageal Cancer. I need prayer and any help. I am planning to beat this.
You could have pushed me over with a feather. Jim was a successful engineer. Healthy as a horse, no medications and blood work was that of a sixteen year old. The whole family expected Jim to bury us all. On top of his successes, he was a great guy. He helped take care of my mama until she died.
The % of survivors of esophageal cancer was in the teens %. I loved Jim like a brother. He and Shirl had a great marriage. Jim’s love was collecting Studebakers. Actually Jim collected EVERYTHNG! Antique toys, Avon, cars, hubcaps and at times Junk.
After we hung up from the call I went to the net. His chances were slim. BUT I ran across something. An $89.00 money back cancer cure. WHAT? Yep from Canada. There was a sure fire, money back guarantee. It had breath taking testimonies.
I despise people who prey on someone with no hope. I wondered how many people said, what the heck it is just $80. Why not. Of course I found other sites saying this was a FRAUD.
But since then I have seen:
Take this and never forget a thing! Sure and it doesn’t snow in Wisconsin.
Look 20 years younger in 20 minutes!.. Right on, no problem.
Lose 150 lbs of ugly fat in just two months. (that must mean shoot your hubby)
Regrow you hair in 20 days, We know it is hard to believe.
(don’t be suckered into that, I didn’t get a sprig!)
Regain your youthful beauty in 20 days? (what if you wuz ugly?)
Dr. Blaylock: The Root Cause of Aging (and How You Can Stop It!)
(Everybody knows, that you can stop aging by shooting yourself!)
The list goes on and on. We lost Jim. His chances weren’t good from the beginning. We miss him. Shirl especially, she expected them to grow old together.
Con artists are just that. In person or in print, they gain your confidence, then get your money. They laugh all the way to the bank at your (our) gullibility.
A person dying may grasp at the smallest possibility, saying what have I got to lose. What is $89 when you are dying?
It is a sick,mean person, who preys on desperate folk.
