My dad was all the things listed above and much more!
Unfortunately, my father made his transition at the very young age of 54. He got to hold his first grandson but never got to meet my son who was born 5 months after his passing.
My father had a rare form of lung cancer but was a non-smoker. He chose to follow the conventional route of treatment. Remember this was 31 years ago. Six months before his diagnosis he was a vibrant, healthy, active man. In fact, he had just been to the doctor for a physical and his doctor told him he had the body of a 30-year-old. My dad's parents lived healthy lives until well into their 80's as did his three brothers.
His surviving sister is 90 years old and going strong.
As I watched what the chemotherapy and radiation did to him, I knew that there had to be a better way. He was gone within six months of starting treatment. As awful as that was, what is equally awful is that he was robbed of any quality of life during those six months of treatment.
My dad's passing spurred me into my holistic studies and into the work I am doing today.
If we had known then what we know now, the outcome may have been very different.
We now know that there are so many things we can do from a dietary and lifestyle standpoint.
We have so much information at our fingertips and with all of the wonderful summits like
The Anti Cancer Revolution (see below to register)
starting June 17 through June 23rd,
we are truly empowered.
My colleagues at the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education
say on the front of their brochure
"We believe 90% of all cancers can be eliminated through environment and
lifestyle choices alone
and science agrees."
