Dear Friends and Loved Ones,

Today it is with a grieving heart I share that my dear sister Emberly past away unexpectedly on Sabbath evening August 11 @ 5:55 pm. We don't know why. But were told she had unexplained and sudden swelling to her brain.

Memorial for Emberly Elisabeth Benton Blake will be held at the Lakeport Seventh Day Adventist Church on September 22 at 3:00 pm

The picture below was taken just a few weeks ago at Leone Meadows Family Camp, where she enjoyed a wonderful week of vacation with her husband and children and Sister Audrey and her family. They all had a very enjoyable time together. She was doing so well.

The week following family camp brought to Lake County the largest fire in the history of California. Three days fire threatened our homes before it moved on. We are still smothering in smoke.

Then Wednesday night August 8th Emberly started having very bad head aches. Do to the fires the Lakeport Hospital was closed. Thinking highway 20 to Ukiah was closed also we rushed Emberly to the Clearlake Adventist Health Hospital were they did and MRI and could not see anything amiss. They kept her over night to hydrate her with IV's and sent her home the next morning. Her head aches were relieved.

But again Thursday night August 9 her head aches returned and she went unconscious. This time we rushed her to the Ukiah Adventist Health Hospital. They quickly put her on life support and did an MRI. We were told she was in a coma. said it looked very grim. Not having a Nero Surgeon on staff they could not tell us what her condition was or advice us on what to do for her other than suggesting she be sent to another hospital asap. She was Air lifted to UCFS where they pronounced her brain dead.

Sabbath morning 18 family members gathered in her room for a season of prayer, hymns and tears to say our last goodbyes as we committed Emberly into our Loving Heavenly Fathers arms.

This has been a very emotional time for all of us, especially for her loving husband Jason, and oldest son Jeremiah age 17, son Josiah, age 14, and only daughter age 12.

If you wish to send your condolences to Emberly's children and husband, you may do so at P.O.Box 483, Lakeport, CA, 95453

UPDATE: Emberly DID NOT lose the battle with Cancer. She was 14 months cancer free and no brain tumor. Autopsy revealed inflammation of cerebral tissue leading to spontaneous brain swelling.

You raised an interesting point. I've noticed the same thing pretty much everywhere.

It didn't happen. Mom ended up getting a buyer for her place. She had moved in with us two years ago. We spent all fall and winter so far sorting stuff from her two houses and cleaning. We have the house ready but the trailer/house and 4 other buildings are not completed. The closing on the house is Monday January 15. The buyers are my husband's cousin and her husband so we have time to do the rest of the stuff later on. It will be a vacation home for them so they are in no hurry about emptying the other buildings.

We are still plan to do this though! We have been studying and making plans and most of all praying for the right timing.

Thanks for asking about it!

The video covers things from patient testimonials, statistical information on the success rates and after-effects in comparision to the the traditional chemo therapy success rates and after effects, to the legal battles, etc.

I was glued to the video from start to finish.

I suggest you look at the whole picture by watching the video rather than only reading those other links.

The criticism is different than what I would have expected. is one such site.

Wayne and Lisa's story on also caught my attention.
  • Still using chemo.
  • High cost.
  • Side effects.
Did the video indicate that any of these three issues doesn't really exist?

There are always those who make such claims against those type of things, but then what about all the claims against using chemo-radiation treatments?

Watch the whole video, as I did, and then tell me/us again what you think.

Did they see the following video?:

I did a little searching online, and I would have some definite questions before trying that route. There are those who claim it isn't what it claims to be.

How did things go last Fall?
I often think of this quotation. I don't want to be one of those who is asked this question! We have 31 families on our road (about 3 miles)  and some other friends not far away. Most are Baptists or were raised Baptist and are not church-goers right now. We hope to send out an invitation to every one of them and invite them to a prophecy seminar this fall at our home. We would appreciate prayers!

But to answer your question, I don't think we can generalize, some Adventists are giving the warning, some are giving a muddled message. We need to ask ourselves, "What am I doing to warn those in my circle of influence?"
