Survivor Stories

James Templeton 30-Year Stage IV Melanoma Survivor

James Templeton was diagnosed with melanoma that eventually progressed to Stage IV back in the mid-1980s. After conventional treatment failed him, James took a holistic approach to healing, radically changed his diet and his lifestyle and healed his cancer. He is now a 30-year stage IV melanoma survivor!

James is also the author of the new book I Used to Have Cancer: How I found my way back to health.

I know you’ll get a ton of wisdom, encouragement, and inspiration from James. Enjoy!
