Nancy Salzman reportedly ‘sickly thin’; announced plans to treat breast cancer with Raniere tools, no medical treatment

Nancy Salzman and her daughter Michelle.

Several media and film teams were in Clifton Park this weekend to film and gather information on the increasingly important story about what some in the media are calling Keith Raniere’s sex and slavery cult.

During Vanguard Week in August this year, sources told me that Nancy Salzman admitted to some people that she had breast cancer.

A few weeks later, many NXIVM members were told that Nancy was going to use only the tools of ESP as devised by Keith Raniere to cure her breast cancer.  She would take no professional medical help,  but use Keith’s tech to cure her cancer.

Nancy Salzman was spotted walking in Knox Woods with India Oxenberg this weekend.

A correspondent for Frank Report gave the following verbatim report.

Correspondent: Nancy is very thin.

Frank Report: How thin? She is normally thin.

Correspondent: I hadn’t seen her since summer.  She is ‘sickly thin’, as you would expect from cancer. And remember, she was thin to begin with. India Oxenberg looks huge compared to her.

Frank Report: Do you know it has been given out to the members that she is only going to use the tools of ESP. Rational Inquiry, Exploration of Meaning.

Correspondent: If she is not being treated, I give her 6 to 12 months

Frank Report: That  is what multiple people still in NXIVM have said.

Correspondent: Well, she is a dead woman walking then. Of course, it is her right not to seek repeat treatment. Chemo is horrible.

Frank Report: So, just to get it straight. Nancy is more than usually thin.

Correspondent: Shockingly thin. She has lost a lot of weight since this summer.


As an aside: Slender women have a higher risk of developing breast cancer, a study warns.

Scientists evaluated fat tissue from the breast and blood samples of 72 women with normal body-mass indices – less than 25.

They found that 40 percent of them had ominous inflammation in their breast fat tissue.

The reason, they believe, is because many women with healthy BMIs have larger fat cells in their breast tissue, rather than in their lower body. As they grow, these cells can become sick or die, and trigger an inflammatory response.

Nancy Salzman was always thin. But now a correspondent says she is much thinner than ever. Is it weight loss associated with cancer?

  • I hope Suzanne Kemp along with the 2 oman who “committed suicide” are there when God turn Nancy Salman away from the gates of heaven.
    I hope my mom and the parents of the other victims also. She needs to be judges by her victims family and peers before God before he sends her to HELL.
    Karma Salman, or you can heal your breach against humanity.

  • I don’t think Nancy Salzman has enough moral character to do the right thing even as she approaches death. This is a woman who gave away her two daughters to a disgusting, sexually abusive and sociopathic asshole. And she used to preach that “breast cancer is caused by low self-esteem”. She’s rotten to the core and deserves the fate that now awaits her.

  • Barbara Jeske, Pam Cafritz and now Nancy Salzman not so far behind them from the sounds of it.

    Jeske and Cafritz used their Vanguards cancer treatment and we all know how that worked out. Looks as if Salzman is not too far behind them. Must be the stress of all that lying and beating people up that takes a toll on ones health. At least the state and federal government won’t be coming after her for all those back taxes she hasn’t paid.

    Maybe she can still make it to heaven if she turns states or federal evidence before heading on to the other side. I don’t think God is going to be very forgiving of her behavior if she doesn’t heal her breach with him.

    Nancy it’s not to late to work that last big one with the real higher power.

  • Life with a psychopath is a living hell. Nancy’s daughter’s been branded and featured on the front page of the New York Times as an evil manipulating pimp. Nancy would rather die a pretend martyr to her cause than take responsibility for what she’s done and continues to do.

    Think how happy Keith will be when she’s dead. Driving people to destruction or death is his greatest thrill. Once Nancy’s gone he’s not accountable to anyone or anything. Nancy will continue lying and pimping for Keith to her last breath anyway. That’s what’s happening here folks. It’s is a den of evil. Walking with India Oxenberg? So wrong.
