I am a stage 4 rectal cancer survivor (cancer free since June 2011), writer, motivational speaker, healthy food advocate/activist, vegan, practicing Buddhist, ostomate, and well-being coach.
I did a great deal of research to find out why I got cancer and then how to get well while I was recovering from my illness. In a nutshell — I am positive that I got cancer from eating processed foods that are loaded with chemicals and genetically modified ingredients. I chose to get conventional treatment to fight my cancer, but included alternative treatments as well. I stopped eating all processed foods. I became vegan literally overnight. I juiced. I drank green smoothies. I took supplements and drank Noni juice daily. I still do all of the above and I am cancer free and feel great!
So what’s this blog about? It’s about life after cancer, my thoughts about being a practicing Zen Buddhist, living vegan; dipped in occasional political discourse.
Its about my journey back to wellness. I share with you what helped me get back to good health and stay that way.
Its my hope to inspire others to live life to their fullest. A Stage 4 diagnosis is only a number and not a death sentence. I am living proof.
