Hodgkin’s lymphoma healed: 14-year follow up with Cortney Campbell


Today is the 12-year anniversary of the Chris Beat Cancer Blog! And today’s interview is a follow-up with the first natural cancer survivor I interviewed, way back in 2011, Cortney Campbell.

Cortney was diagnosed with Stage II Nodular Lymphocyte Predominant Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in October of 2008. This is a rare type of lymphoma and at that time she was told there were no conclusive studies on what type of conventional treatment would work. The chemotherapy suggested to her had many concerning side effects, one of which was infertility.

While touring the cancer clinic, Kevin heard, “This is not for you.” And that prompted them to look for another way to heal.

Kevin and Cortney found information and inspiration from holistic survivors like Kris Carr (whom I’ve also interviewed) and they took a leap of faith together and focused on healing naturally with plant-based nutrition and natural therapies. And she got well!

Cortney and her husband Kevin have become dear friends over the years and today, nearly fourteen years after her diagnosis, Cortney is still cancer-free and a mom to five beautiful kids.

Cortney runs a blog called Anticancer Mom and has been instrumental in the growth of the Healing Strong holistic cancer support group community. She and Kevin also contributed entries to my book Beat Cancer Daily: 365 Days of Inspiration, Encouragement, and Action Steps to Survive and Thrive.

You’re going to love this interview with Cortney and Kevin Campbell!
