Friends have asked me to post this on their behalf

PJ here. We've had several friends, who continue to surround us with their love, ask to post the following on Dina's blog, so here it goes:

Let’s Make a Difference!

Dina Mountcastle has been battling breast cancer for over 3 ½ years now. Dina is a wife and mother to two small girls (Madeline and Ginger), an active member of the Prescott community, local theater, MOPs (Mothers of Preschoolers), and American Lutheran Church.

Recently, due to the advanced disease in her liver, the oncology community has recommended ceasing cancer treatment. Hospice services have begun. It goes without saying; this has been devastating news for her, her sweet family, loved ones, and everyone that she has touched.

How can we help? Being in cancer treatment for over 3 ½ years can take a toll on a family’s savings. The medical bills have been significant and burdensome. As you can imagine, Christmas gifts are low on the priority list.

Dina has hesitantly allowed a group of friends to create a way for all of us to make a difference!

If you are able, please consider making a donation to “Dina Mountcastle’s Game On Fund” to make this an extra special Christmas for her family and help with the mounting medical bills. An account has been opened in Dina’s name through PayPal for medical expenses and Christmas for her family. See the “Donate” tab to the right on how to make a donation through PayPal.

As a community, we can make a difference and help this family.

With sincere thanks,

Friends of Dina -


  1. Thanks for doing this, PJ. I hope you get lots of donations; I've made mine!

    Merry Christmas to you, Dina and your girls.


  2. Dina,
    I'm not sure if you remember me, but I'm Joe's step mom Jenn. I have read your story and want you to know that you and your family are in my prayers. In reading your "About me" I was touched by your statement " To be able to look at people, know what is hurting them and heal it." Dina I feel the exact same way which is why I feel a tugging on my heart to share with you the Dietary Supplement called Protandim.

    Protandim consist of phytochemicals derived from five widely studied medicinal plants including silymarin from milk thistle, curcumin from turmeric, bacopa extract, ashwagandha, and green tea extract. The five phytochemical components of Protandim have a synergistic effect to induce phase II antioxidant enzymes and protect cells from oxidative stress through activation of the transcription factor NF-E2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) [15, 16]. Protandim is scientifically proven in a published peer-reviewed study to increase the body’s productions of glutathione levels by 300%. There is no other means by which our body can increase our production of Glutathione naturally at this scale! Glutathione is the MASTER ANTIOXIDANT and the MOST IMPORTANT ANTIOXIDANT in your body!
    What is Glutathione?
    It is the mother of all antioxidants…the master detoxifier and the maestro of your immune system. Your body produces its own Glutathione, however our poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections, and radiation all deplete our bodies naturally acquired Glutathione levels.
    This leaves you susceptible to unrestrained cell disintegration from oxidated stress and free radicals to infections and cancers.
    Your liver gets damaged, not allowing it to do its job which is to detoxify your body.
    Dr. Mark Hyman says that his very ill patients always have one thing in common.....Glutathione deficiencies…. For example: people who have heart disease, cancer, chronic infections, autoimmune disease, diabetes, autism, alzheimer’s, Parkinson disease, arthritis, asthma, kidney problems, liver disease, you name it, are likely to have a Glutathione deficiency.

    Studies on Protandim can also be found on PUBMED.GOV type in "Protandim and Cancer"

    I believe with all my heart that you can benefit from Protandim. There are NO SIDE EFFECTS, and it's all Natural. If you have any questions please feel free to call me. 602-486-3363

    God Bless you and your family.

  3. Dina, you have inspired me and helped me chart my own cancer journey. I'm no longer letting it happen to me, I'm now God's co-pilot and will follow His plans for this journey. :0)
