Nancy Salzman said to have breast cancer

Nancy Salzman, known also as Prefect, has told followers she has breast cancer, several sources told Frank Report. She admitted it to friends and followers at V-Week.

This is Ms. Salzman’s second bout with cancer.  She had a malignant tumor in her breast and was successfully treated, she said. She credited her cure to Rational Inquiry, EMs and the aid of the Dalai Lama’s former personal physician, Yeshi Dhonden.

At the time of her previous bout, sources say, Sara Bronfman brought the Venerable Lama Tenzin Dhonden, a special emissary of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Albany. The title venerable is given to Buddhist monks who take a vow of celibacy and poverty.

Miss Bronfman told Lama Tenzin that the Dalai Lama might find NXIVM’s tools useful.  Lama Tenzin visited Albany and met NXIVM members.

Despite allegations that NXIVM was a cult, Lama Tenzin declared, “I have my own intellectual resource, capacity, to know persons, to feel persons. I can pick up like that, very easily.”

Lama Tenzin said publicly, “With the ethical tools developed by Keith Raniere, and the presence, wisdom and guidance of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, we have the essential ingredients to transform our society.”

Both Keith Raniere and Ms. Salzman realized that Lama Tenzin could help transform NXIVM’s image. They encouraged Miss Bronfman to seduce Lama Tenzin.

She provided him with luxurious accommodations. She lavished him with attention. She stayed on hand into the evening to ensure his comfort. The two were surprised when a friend stopped over unannounced and caught them canoodling in the hot tub.

Lama Tenzin was soon transformed by Mr. Raniere’s ethical tools.

According to eyewitnesses, Sara and Lama Tenzin shared the same bedroom. This may have pleased Mr. Raniere for it appeared that Lama Tenzin would bring about an endorsement of the Dalai Lama.

[Much like Emiliano Salinas and Alex Betancourt’s homosexual relationship was known only to the inner circle of NXIVM, so the affair of Sara and Lama Tenzin was known to the inner circle but hidden from students and the world at large.]

When Prefect found she had cancer, Lama Tenzin helped arrange for her treatments with Dr. Dhonden, a Buddhist monk and Tibetan medicine practitioner who used herbal medicines and diet for curing cancer. Ms. Salzman followed his regime and went into remission.

Shortly afterward, the Saratoga in Decline blog revealed that Lama Tenzin was having a very un-monk-like affair with Miss Bronfman. The Dalai Lama said “Either give up the woman or give up the robes of the monk.”

Lama Tenzin broke up with Miss Bronfman.  Ms. Salzman was cured.  Miss Bronfman was crushed. But she soon met Basit Igtet and married him on the rebound.

In 2012, Ms. Salzman told students that Mr. Raniere’s technology was so powerful it cured her breast cancer. She pointed especially to EM tech.

It is not known if Ms. Salzman will utilize only Mr. Raniere’s tech to aid her in her latest cancer treatment.

In the last few years, Pam Cafritz and Barbara Jeske, two of four women who have been consistently closest to Mr. Raniere for the longest period, succumbed to cancer. Both relied on Mr. Raniere’s judgment and his “technology” for their cures.

Karen Unterreiner also had cancer but went into remission making it four-for-four for cancer among his longest serving top inner circle.

Most women of the inner circle suffer from sleep and food deprivation.  Raniere teaches that lack of spiritual understanding makes people sleep and eat so much.  He also teaches that once a woman gets rid of her “disintegrations” and becomes “fully integrated”, she needs 500 calories per day and very little sleep.

Ms. Salzman has been on low calorie and low sleep regimes for nearly 20 years.

Mr. Raniere is on neither a low cal diet or low sleep. He eats as much as he likes and sleeps long hours in the afternoon while the women are working for his causes.

Mr. Raniere teaches that breast cancer is caused by low self esteem.  It is hoped that Ms. Salzman gets the self confidence to not gamble with her own health – and seeks the best medical attention available.


One thing is unchangeable: All students owe P [l] and V [r] their ardent devotion and worship for what they do for each and everyone.
V Week 2016  had an estimated 400 attendees. V-Week 2017 had 125. Seated next to Mr. Raniere is Prefect, Nancy Salzman, and the late Pamela Cafritz. She died of cancer a few months after V-Week.

  • I’m sorry…but the “I-want-retribution-me” has won the battle with the “Have-compassion-for-my-enemies-me”. So, now my hope is that I’ll get to visit Nurse Nancy on her deathbed – and my “goodbyes” face-to-face. And if I’m really lucky, that will happen before the snow falls.

  • Nancy, you are of Jewish descent yes? If you are of Ashkenazi Jewish descent you more than likely have a genetic predisposition for breast cancer. And your cancer is from a good old genetic mutation. And genetics has nothing to do with low self esteem or any ethical breach. Its science Nancy. Oh that’s right Keith claims to be a
    Scientist but he obviously knows jack shit and is nothing but a two-bit conman and a lazy motherfucker at that.. Maybe you already know this and have stuffed it deep down inside you because Keith told you that he could cure you. He probably cant even burp his own kid or change a diaper something you obviously did and could. So why would you take any advise from him? Don’t be a Pam or a Barb be a Nancy and stand up to the short little dicked man. Tell him to go take a flying fuck off the Crescent Bridge. Do the smart thing and get yourself a consult with NYOH. Because if you follow Keith like a lemming off the cliff you are going to die and will not live long enough to see your daughters have any possible chance at a normal life or grandchildren.

  • I heard Uncle Keith, like Lama Tenzin, was a “monk” too at once.


    A monk with a harem. Now that’s a first!

  • This cult is fucking joke. It teaches people to lie and deceive others in the name of ethics, even using things like love to manipulate people. It’s a fucking embarrassment to existence.

  • [Roll eyes].

    It’s compassionate to show sympathy for her condition. But give me a fucking break. How can you say she’s been “duped”? She’s been a willing participant for almost two decades.

  • Karma, as they say, is a bitch. But, then again, Nancy is also a bitch – and an evil one at that. It’s impossible for me to feel any sympathy for a woman who willingly gave her two daughters as “tribute” to Raniere. The most I can offer is that I hope the cancer is no more painful than all the pain she’s inflicted on others over the past 15 years.

  • I am so sorry to hear this. As much as I don’t like what’s been going on in the upper and inner circles of this company, I truly love and respect Nancy and wish her a speedy recovery back to health. She’s been duped, like all of us.

    • You’ve been double duped. Once by Nexium/Keith and secondly to believe Nancy played no role or had no knowledge of the offenses.
