Here is a Question from One of Our Customers:
My stepdad has just been diagnosed with stage IV kidney cancer and it has metastasized in his bones. He will be undergoing surgery to have the affected kidney removed and then he will be undergoing IL-2 immunotherapy. I would like to get him some healing crystals to help him stay strong and positive, and help his body to fight the cancer. I was wondering if fluorite, selenite, turquoise, and topaz would be good choices? Or if there were any specific healing crystals that you would recommend? Also, are there any healing crystals that you could recommend for caregivers of cancer patients?
