||Hi. Thanks for visiting! Here’s the super-short version
of my story:
Against huge odds, I’m alive and well, enthusiastically living my life.
I overcame bone cancer when I was 33, and had my left leg amputated. The disease
struck again when I was 41 – this time breast cancer.
Even after a mastectomy, chemo and radiation,
doctors gave me virtually no hope.
I wanted to live, and
was willing to try whatever might help. So when I heard
some encouraging reports about how well some women had
done with a macrobiotic diet,
I willingly tried it. That was in 1999, and I’ve
eaten this healthy way – with lots of good whole
grains, beans and vegetables – ever since.
I firmly believe that switching my diet is
the main reason (along with a positive attitude!) that
I recovered and continue to be free of cancer. I want to
share what I've learned about this approach. I’m
doing that through my books,
Becoming Whole and Breast Cancer Exposed the many helpful
resources at this site, and my
blog. I write, teach macrobiotic cooking classes and tell
my hopeful story to a variety of groups, to help people
to understand the all-important link between diet and health.
I’m now 52, and happily living with
my family in Maine. My husband Tom and I have two wonderful
children, Francis, 23, and Cammie, 20. >MORE:
