Showing commitment to a cause can take many different directions and often shows up in surprising ways that may not be expected by the individual or those around them. Animal activist Keith Mann has explained before some of the reasons behind his commitment to the cause of protecting animals from cruelty and how it has affected his own life. Now, a viral Buzzfeed article tells us Mann is seeking the assistance of the public as he searches for help with an aggressive form of cancer that is affecting him as he refuses the conventional treatments backed by pharmaceutical companies who test their products on animals.
Keith Mann explains that he has always felt strong set of emotions towards animals and has fought to protect them throughout his life. Whilst still at school a series of events took place that eventually led Mann to become a member of the Animal Liberation Front and forced him to break the law as he tried to help animals facing cruelty. Amongst the things Mann has done in his life include making sure a rabbit held without food or water was freed from captivity and that the cause for banning fox hunting was publicized across the UK.
Mann continues to look for new and innovative ways to publicize the animal rights cause and eventually decided to stand for election to the UK Parliament bringing with him a set of policies designed to help animals being ill treated. The work of Keith Mann to protect animals came to a shuddering halt when he was diagnosed with follicular lymphoma and told the best course of treatment was to use the medications created by the major organizations he had spent his life fighting for testing on animals. At this point many people would have taken the cure and forgotten about what they fought for.
Instead, Keith Mann decided to make sure he maintained his principles and dedication to the care of animals by refusing the medications used in traditional treatments. Mann is now looking for assistance with his decision from the public who he hopes will help pay for his Gerson Therapy. This therapy requires Keith Mann to consume organic ingredients and natural products in a bid to detoxify his body and allow the natural ingredients to help fight the cancerous cells.
