True Activist – by Amanda Froelich
Though stigma still surrounds the cultivation and use of cannabis, more and more people are realizing that the crop isn’t only beneficial for the environment, it may seriously help individuals who suffer from afflictions such as cancer.
In the past, True Activist has shared powerful stories of individuals healing themselves from debilitating conditions with cannabis oil. Now, a story has surfaced of a Hollywood stuntman curing his stage 4 cancer with the aid of the plant. He’s now on a mission to reduce the stigma associated with using hemp, and hopes that in the future, medical marijuana is legally available to everyone.
High Times reports that American stuntman Mark Chavarria was the type of individual who never slowed down. He’s been working in the Hollywood industry for twenty years, and has been featured as a stunt double in movies such as Inception and Iron Man.
Even when he noticed health issues that should have been a red flag for him to visit his doctor, he kept his attention on his career. He started feeling overly tired in the evenings and even began noticing some blood in his stool. It wasn’t until one of his “stunt buddies,” who had been experiencing similar symptoms, was diagnosed with colon cancer that Mark and his wife, Alyssa, decided to take the signs seriously.
It took a long time for Chavarria to ever visit his doctor, but when he did, it was confirmed that he was suffering from stage 4 colon cancer. At this point, he had already given up coffee and red meat, but knew more serious changes were required.
“That was the start of it all. Literally, when I woke up from the procedure, my wife was in there crying. She’s like, ‘you’ve got cancer,’ and I was like ‘no, I don’t.’”
Denial was the first challenge he had to overcome. Eventually, he told his wife: “I will beat this. You watch me.” The battle wouldn’t be an easy one, however. Nearly 70% of his colon was taken over by tumors, as was his liver.
He began consulting with several doctors, all of whom offered a number of different opinions on his best chances for beating the beast known as cancer. One doctor told him the only solution was to surgically reroute his plumbing, which involved removing a portion of his colon and then fitting him for a colostomy bag that he would have to wear for the rest of his life. Mortified by the idea, Mark sought a less-drastic way out and found another opinion.
The next doctor suggested that while it may be possible for him to skip the colon-clipping surgery – at least for the time being – it was necessary for him to begin radiation and chemotherapy.
“I asked those guys if there was anyway I could avoid surgery, and [if] the chemo and radiation would get rid of the tumors 100 percent,” Chavarria explained. “They said, ‘nope, won’t happen.’”
With no other option, Mark began treatments immediately. The dreaded effects of the chemotherapy and radiation were almost intolerable. Reportedly, he had to start taking Oxycontin and Hydrocodone just to go to the restroom, as the radiation burned when he urinated.
“I’ve been doing stunts for over 20 years, so I know what pain is. I’ve been lit on fire, I’ve flipped cars, I’ve gone out windows, I’ve fought a lot of people, but this was the extreme of extreme pain,” he said.
It was when an old friend from high school suggested to Alyssa that Mark try medical marijuana that his situation changed. His wife was eager for Mark to try it, but he was apprehensive became of the stigma associated with cannabis.
“I was raised that way,” he said. “Drugs are bad.”
After he learned that it is possible to supplement with cannabis oil and not get high (if it doesn’t contain THC), he decided to give it a try. Mark noticed remarkable changes almost instantly.
“Once I got on this oil, I was able to get rid of everything – all the Hydrocodine, the Oxycontin, everything,” he said.
His demeanor also changed. When he was on the pharmaceutical drugs, he was an “angry, mean person” and his wife didn’t like it. On cannabis, he was calm, cool, and collected.
When Mark informed his doctors of his experiment, they said they weren’t for it… but weren’t against it. They still pushed the prescriptions for both Oxycontin and Hydrocodone, but Mark later learned the is because his primary oncologist owned the pharmacy.
Because cannabis oil was working, he continued with the treatment of oil and an occasional toke. The herb helped relieve excruciating pain associated with his cancer treatment. For example, five minutes after smoking cannabis, he would feel good enough to go out to dinner with his wife.
“It was just that much of a difference,” he said. “It was insane.”
When Mark began on chemo, he lost a staggering amount of weight – around 40 pounds in less than a year. When he started the natural treatment, a renewed appetite helped him regain some pounds and keep a decent weight.
Finally, something remarkable happened. In June 2014, Mark woke up with the strange feeling that his cancer was gone. So, he scheduled a session with his physician. Amazingly, a colonoscopy and a CAT scan revealed that only scar tissue from the radiation remained.
Even his liver was 95% free of tumors. He was cancer-free!
He shares that while using cannabis oil, he intuitively felt that the herb was killing the cancer.
“It’s kind of gross, but I literally felt like I was pooping the thing out every time I went to the restroom,” he explained. “What I believe happens with the oil is it makes like a shellac on the tumors, and it doesn’t let it grow; doesn’t let it breathe; doesn’t let it eat… nothing. I think it was slowly, but surely, peeling away at the tumors like an onion.”
While physicians chalked his recovery up to chemo and radiation, Mark is calling ‘bullshit’. Three of his friends, all roughly around the same age, were also diagnosed with stage four colorectal cancer around the same time. Despite pleading from Mark and Alyssa for them to try cannabis oil, they chose chemotherapy and radiation and all eventually perished.
Mark is alive, he says, because of medical marijuana.
“People wait too late. As soon as we found out that I had cancer, we were on the oil within a month. We jumped on it right way, and I think that is key, and that is what a lot of people don’t get.”
Mark now takes weekly “maintenance” oil to prevent the cancer from coming back. So far there has been no sign the disease returning.
Because the ordeal with cancer changed his perception about the herb substantially, he is raising money to produce a documentary about the healing powers of cannabis oil. His ultimate goal is to break the stigma associated with medical marijuana so that all individuals have easy, affordable access to the medicine. You can learn more about his plight here.

I will begin the regimen next week I chose the vapor method which is fairly new but just as effective. I will let you know my progress. The size of the tumor is the same size of as an avacado pit and has not metastasized. I have chosen to forego any surgery, chemo and or x-ray treatments. This particular treatment is Cannabidiol CBD which has been shown to be very effective. It comes in various forms of personal choice. Here is a link to look at https://healthyhempoil.com/cannabidiol/?hvid=3ITmNj if nterested.
During my quest feel free to ask any questions my email address is;
I wish the best for you, Grin….I was diagnosed and ‘treated’ for breast cancer in 1999-2000….if only I had known about the cannabis oil back then …….thanks for the most excellent link……here is one that shows how to make your own oil http://phoenixtears.ca/…………..remember also that cancer is NOT a disease rather a SYMPTOM of a mal functioning immune system brought on by an endless number of factors……it is important for everyone to understand how our immune system is supposed to work and take steps in rebuilding it…….I applaud you for declining the traditional attack as there is virtually no cure in that poison……my love to you, Grin
Thank you Mary, I unlike many have no fear or stress over this. I have a wild sense of humor which keeps me going. The brain is a powerful tool unfortunately, many have no clue of how to use it to its best advantage.
…and I love to laugh! I will be laughing with you Grin!
Best wishes sweetie! You will beat it! I’ll pray for you 🙂
Susan, B17 cured my lung cancer, my friend John’s skin cancer, and Mark Schumacher’s cancer.
It works on ALL cancers. Guaranteed.
how does one get it?
This is where I’ve always gotten mine from, and they’re dirt cheap… compared to any of the so-called ‘medical’ establishment’s ‘solutions’. My first comment on the article (reply to Angel) explains how I take them.
I had total success with the kernels alone, but B17 is also available in capsules (2nd link) if you prefer (and can afford it… they’re kind of pricey compared to the seeds, but more convenient to take).
Hope this helps, Susan. That was the best thing I’ve ever written, insofar as life-saving information. I don’t think it would have happened had I not found FTT.
THANKS, HENRY!!!!! 😀
Thanks ordered seeds and caps. My best friend of 39 years went through surgery, chemo and radiation and believe me though she make it cancer free she is not the same at all. She now has nerve damage to her legs he memory and thinking time is off and she looks older. She stands by the pharma industry and got the shingles vaccine. I get so discouraged listening to her. You should see the look I got when i told her I was not going that route. I would rather die than go there.
Thanks again tis amazing what happens when you make the right choices You get better help.
Most welcome, Susan. It was after discovering this information (and the fact that my mom & sister didn’t have to die from cancer) I swore to myself that I would research & expose everything I possibly could about the NWO’s evil agenda. I would never have been able to reach so many without FTT.
I HATE having been lied to my entire life about SO MANY THINGS!!!!! 😡
What a remarkable story. One that’s not suppose to gain traction due to its ability to cure cancer. Eff off big pharma and your willingness to kill off as many as you can while collecting as much money/shekels.
I just read an article recently that stated that cancer was man made. Duh. We know that. Vaccines induce it as well. The people that are trying to make our lives a living hell never rest. They try to outlaw anything that can counter their genocidal plans. We the people will find a way, and we don’t need permission. God helps those who help themselves.
“I was raised that way,” he said. “Drugs are bad.”
Ya shall not experience any happiness unless imaginary from the bible or in the form of exhaustion from working as a slave…
How to turn the pursuit of happiness into the opposite by making people free to believe anything and telling them anything but the truth.
Of course medical marijuana should be legal. ALL drugs should be legal for adult use. Which mortal man has the right to tell another human being what substances he can ingest, or to otherwise dictate how another must manage his own health? Anyone who thinks he has such a right to control others needs to go straight to hell.
That said, I don’t believe marijuana cured this guy’s cancer — at least not directly. But I suspect it helped him to eat well, sleep well, and keep his spirits up. All of these things are important to keeping one’s immune system functioning well, possibly allowing it kill off any cancer cells that remained after the harsh standard treatments.
