Ann Fonfa: Natural Breast Cancer Survivor Since ’93

Ann E. Fonfa, Jan 1993 breast cancer, age 44

Describe your experience with conventional doctors and treatments:
Was suffering from multiple chemical sensitivity and ill often from exposures – usually had to stay in bed for days at a time.

Had an amazingly (I thought) unsympathetic oncologist who suggested chemo and told me it didn’t matter when I explained my problems with reactions to smells, and chemicals.

I walked out and did not return. Refused radiation, then hormonal treatment. But I consented to lots of small surgeries as I had five years of local recurrence (even after mastectomy)…

Audree: Beat Breast Cancer Naturally in 1980!

My father died 2-1/2 years before her.

Stacy Jett: Late Stage Melanoma Survivor Since 2003

On April 1, 2003 I was diagnosed w/ a late stage 3b, malignant melanoma that had ulcerated and after a sentinal node biopsy they discovered that the cancer was in my lymph nodes. I learned to follow my intuition, I learned that fear had no place (except to motivate) in cancer recovery. Too many patients put their life into the hands who have no true interest in your survival. Why do we do this? “Bad” patients i think have higher survivor rates because they are willing to actually think outside the box and don’t fold under “an authority figure”…

Angie: Breast Cancer Survivor Since 1998

Hi Chris,
Just found your website through Bill Henderson’s monthly newsletter.
Excellent website! Good for you!
I beat breast cancer. I was diagnosed in 1998.
My doctor wanted me to have a mastectomy, do chemo & radiation.
I opted (against her advice) for a lumpectomy with NO chemo or radiation.
I followed the raw diet, juicing, fasting, vitamins, coffee enemas for 2 years.
I have been cancer-free for 13 years!
I went back to eating a SAD (Standard American Diet), but your website has given me inspiration to get back on the raw, organic foods diet. I had much more energy then…

Green Smoothies, Budwig, and Essiac: Cortney’s Lymphoma Survival Story

In early January I received a message through the blog from a young woman diagnosed with cancer at 26, just like me.
She shared a little bit about her survival story and alternative therapy strategy.
I thought it was so great that I asked her if she would do an interview. And she said yes!
Instead of chemotherapy she decided to make hardcore diet and lifestyle changes along with alternative therapies,
and had a huge surprise along the way.

I really enjoyed this interview and I know you will too.
Very powerful stuff.
