RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Mum's Not Having Chemo is a blog about a woman's experience with cancer. In 2011, she was diagnosed with ovarian and uterine cancer.[1] Because of her belief in alternative medicine's effectiveness for cancer, she chose to use alternative treatments instead of chemotherapy. She did have a hysterectomy,[2] so she is merely taking a 36% increased chance of relapse and death.[3]

The blog is largely written by her daughter (as one might expect from the name), who writes blog posts on various topics, usually supportive of alternative medicine such as homeopathy,[4] pee therapy,[5] black salve, and medical astrology.[6]

The blog is updated weekly, and started from the cancer diagnosis.
