Why we sold everything and moved to a new country…

New Beginnings:  Leaving California Behind
I wanted to start my new blog with a heart-warming post that my husband Dave Ulloa made on his FaceBook page.  As you may know, I’ve been battling ameloblastoma, a rare illness that is considered by science as incurable.  However, we are conquering it and proving to the world that miracles do exist, as we have already beat about 1/3 of the condition and are moving forward fast.  We moved. Yes, we moved.  We sold mostly EVERYTHING WE OWNED.  We moved to a new country where the healing center is.  Packed up 8 suitcases, two dogs, and left a couple of things of emotional value in storage.  Moved to a faraway remote area in the country, rural part of a new country in South America.  So different than the City of Los Angeles!  I wanted to send a special blog as my first one out of my new website, and I couldn’t imagine a better entry, than my beloved’s journal entry of his side of the experienced as we moved from North to South America.  I am sending you all so much love…and here is the wonderful post done by the love of my life,  Dave.

How far would you go to save the person you love?

By Dave Ulloa

Seven Years ago my wife, Yvette was diagnosed with in incurable disease. We heard the words but did not accept his diagnosis. We went on a journey searching for answers and a better solution then what western medicine was giving us. Every Doctor suggested a very invasive 3 part surgery that had many potential side effects and would take a year to recover from. As a former Police officer and government employee we did not have the resources nor the time or connections to search the world for a better solution, a holistic less invasive answer.

Grateful 12 years ago we got out of our comfort zone and stepped into the entrepreneur world. We did not know it at the time but because of that decision it saved my wife’s life (i’ll share that specific story at a later date). As we traveled the world meeting some amazing doctors, homeopaths, holistic practitioners we felt as if we were getting closer and closer. Each getting her mind, body and soul ready to receive the final gift that brought all the pieces to the puzzle together.

A few years ago we found a healing facility in South America that was so far out there, but we decided that surgery was always an option but it was going to be the last option. This facility was the missing piece to the puzzle that all other roads led us to. At first we resisted. We decided that surgery was the only way to go. We requested our prayer warriors to pray for Yvette and scheduled her invasive 12 hour surgery with UCLA medical who had the best doctors for Ameloblastoma.

The Friday before her surgery the doctors dropped the ball. They failed to request a blood test, siting Yvette is healthy and doe not require one. We requested a new scan to see if the tumor had grown. Doctors informed us they were ok with using the one done 6 months ago…. What!!!! Are you kidding me. I immediately got on the phone and let them have it. How could doctors be so uncaring and careless. I realized that God and our prayer warriors were at work. We decided to follow the flow and step into faith. One person one connection later Yvette was in South America. Only way to describe our journey is pure GRACE.

A few months ago we decided that in order for her to completely heal we needed to physically move to South America. We initially would visit every few months and return home. It was like a roller coaster, up and down. She would get better and then worse when we’d leave the facility. We decided to give away and sell everything. We left our Playa Vista, California Luxury apartment home. We gave up our luxury cars and a lifestyle that most would be envious of.

However, none of that matters when the person you love the most is in pain. We feel one of our missions in life is to bring hope and inspire others who may be hurting and in pain, physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually.  We’ve decided to take this pain and make it a gain. We hope you’ll follow our journey as we travel around the world sharing fun, adventurous experiences and the many things we learn along the way. Including updates on her healing progress.

Our outcome is to inspire and bring more light and love to the world. Yes it’s true you can have it all and even if you have a piece of life that is out of balance you can bring it back with our success formula. Desire + Believe + Action = Success.

Lovingly written by my beloved, Dave Ulloa.

    My prayers to you both. I remember the first time I saw you and your husband on stage at Momentum 2014 I believe it was, that was the beginning of my Journey as an entrepreneur, and the 2nd training with WV you guys were very inspirational and fun. I would ask about you because I didn’t see you around. That’s when I learned you were battling a sickness. I enjoyed reading your journey and I know your healing “is” done because God word says, “by his stripes, you are healed”! I will pray for you both, stay encouraged and thank you for the love you both have for each other!
