In our new Option Institute program on navigating serious health challenges,
5 Days to Live: Defying A Terminal Cancer Prognosis, Bears & Samahria with the assistance of our staff will share how to adopt principles and perspectives so you can make specific choices for your care, and ultimately live an inspired life, even in the face of extreme health challenges.
I was told I had 5 days to 5 weeks to live.
“Stage 4 metastatic cancer throughout my body, kidney failure, heart irregularities and possible strokes. I didn’t want to die in the hospital, so I came home to end my days in hospice care. Samahria and I decided to embrace my imminent death by making friends with every aspect of my dying.
“But what if? Instead of preparing to die,
I prepared to LIVE – DESPITE MY PROGNOSIS?
“We began creating a new vision to live, instead of dying. I sought to regain strength, despite intense pain throughout my body. I was told chemotherapy and other medical interventions were essential to keeping me alive. However, Samahria and I reimagined and recreated our own treatment plan on multiple levels and declined all the traditional treatments. Instead of being sick and dying, in a matter of weeks, I began regaining my health, slowly but surely.
“13 months later, I am robustly alive!
“We have learned so much and feel deeply grateful for all the opportunities and challenges in our journeys, and so want to share this with others facing similar health situations. It has been over a year, and I am living a wondrous life! (And even if I die tomorrow, I have had the best time.)
“I am teaching programs and working with individuals and families again. Scans show the cancer cells and lesions disappearing continually and the metastases in my liver have completely healed. Doctors have no explanations for what has happened, and I have been called “the strangest case they have ever seen” at Mass General Hospital. One key physician called me the hospital’s “The Miracle Man”. I am not the miracle man… just a person daring to go his own way with comfort, clarity and confidence.
“I am not my prognosis… Sincerely, (Barry Neil Kaufman),
YOU ARE NOT YOUR PROGNOSIS.
We are all so much more!!!”

*The Option Institute and its teachers have had the honor to present programs (during the last four decades) that explore the attitudes and beliefs we have (and may want to change) and to help program participants find their own answers to questions about relationships, careers, family challenges and health issues. Our new program, 5 Days to Live, Defying a Terminal Cancer Prognosis , focuses on navigating significant health challenges and decision-making with greater ease, clarity, and clear purpose. We are not a medical facility and we do not dispense any medical advice. We have and would always guide our program participants, to consult with their doctors, healthcare providers, and family members in making medical decisions for themselves and those they love.
