On July 28, 2012 my soulmate Kahuna drove me to the ER after 3 days of abdominal pain, crushing fatigue, and nausea. I thought it was appendicitis. By the end of the day, we knew differently. Cancer. Stage IV melanoma that had spread to my lymph nodes and brain.
Doctors said I had only months to live.
This could have been a crushing diagnosis. Doctors offered little in the way of medical cures. For advanced melanoma, there just aren’t effective treatments. At best I could expect a few more months of life. But at what cost? Pain, crushing side effects, and then death? No. It was time to take my life into my own hands. This is my opportunity to radically change my life for the better — and become healthier and happier than ever. As soon as I got out of the hospital, life changed. Out went salt, sugar, wine, and processed foods. In came truckloads of fresh organic vegetables and fruits. Our war on cancer had started.
