In Memory of Dr. Richard Linchitz
March 29, 1947 ~ May 13, 2013
As I write this today, I am filled with incredible sadness that this great physician no longer walks among us. I met Dr. Linchitz – Rick – at the very first IPT conference I produced in 2006. He trained in Insulin Potentiation Therapy in 2005. He came to IPT already knowing the value of diet, supplements, and exercise. He was so gracious, and he asked great questions. I thought he was just great and he kept proving me right.
The more I dealt with him, the more I came to admire him. He joined the Medical Advisory Board first in 2007, and then the Board of Directors for the Foundation. His commitment, support never wavered. His commitment to patients was equally as strong. In his medical practice, he hated to turn anyone away, so he treated a number of his patients pro bono.
I believe this life is about so much more than just our body. I do not understand, of course, why God wanted to take such a decent man so soon, but there must be reasons we do not see at this time. One of the last times I talked with him, he said, “I have probably done thousands of chemosensitivity tests and mine was the only one I have ever seen that said there is nothing the cancer was sensitive to.”
We are never ready to lose a loved one. God, please take great care of Rick.
The Best Answer for Cancer Foundation
“supporting integrative cancer care”
Best Answer for Cancer Foundation (BAFC) is at the forefront of an emerging health care paradigm, the patient-centered approach. Where the patient is in the center of the process of surviving cancer today and creating a stronger, healthier you for the future. We use a tool called The Whole-Being Healing Platform that focuses on the uniqueness of each patient with the aim to enhance the patient’s overall quality of health and strengthen the patient while treating cancer.
OUR MISSION: To provide prevention education, awareness, options and support to patients and physicians dealing with cancer.
OUR VISION: Empowering patients to be involved in determining their personal “best answer for cancer” and promoting physician/patient awareness of kinder, gentler, yet profoundly effective, cancer treatment options that results in you “thriving while surviving” during treatment and recovery.
Welcome to the Foundation’s site. Come, be part of the changing paradigm for cancer care!
