How Fiona healed leukemia, sarcoma and stage 4 cervical cancer!

In 1976, Fiona Shakeela Burns was diagnosed with leukemia and sarcoma at 11 years old, and was cured with Gerson Therapy.

31 years later, in 2007, she was diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer that had metastasized to her ovaries and brain. She refused conventional treatment and healed that too.

I broke our interview up for you into two sections to make them easier to watch and share:
her childhood cancer story (7 min) and her adult cancer story (36 min).

Scroll down for the full version with show notes.


Part 1: Curing leukemia and sarcoma with Gerson therapy at age 11 (7 min)
