“In 1999, my doctors told me I had breast cancer that had spread to my lymph nodes. I decided to learn about my cancer and was open to investigating all types of therapies.
I am doing well today and I consider even the unconventional treatments I took to be my “medicine.” I understand the confusion and anxiety involved in making treatment decisions, and the courage it takes to travel off the beaten path of conventional medicine.”
