Holistic Cancer Coach
"Retired. Soon to be 69 years old. I currently spend most of my time in Costa Rica. I am a certified nutritionist who has lived a plant based lifestyle since 1974. I have shut down my website, healthandsuccess.org. I do not have any published works, and all of my blogs were on my old website.
I am not coaching to earn a living, and all my consultations are free. I am only coaching to pass along my years of experience of my personal cancer journey. I continue to renew my membership primarily to support your cause.
Here is a brief synopsis of my journey. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Mantle Cell Lymphoma in December 2016. I was given a terminal diagnosis, of less than 6 weeks to live, in December 2017. In April 2019, I was declared in remission. Then, in August of 2020, I was diagnosed with treatment related, stage 4, AML(Acute Myeloid Leukemia), and again given a terminal diagnosis of a couple of months to live. In February 2021, I was again declared to be in remission.
Due to the severity of my diagnoses, I have chosen to take an integrative approach to my cancer journey. Taking the best of what the medical world could offer, while staying on my primarily holistic lifestyle path. The positive approach to my journey, along with proper exercise and diet is primarily why I am still here today to tell my story.
I was interviewed by BeatCancer.org in 2019, and the hour long video can still be viewed on the website. "
