Our Food Matters

Want to help someone with illness and especially cancer?  Ask yourself why won’t I change? Why don’t I want to believe?  If there is even a chance that this information is true don’t I owe it to them and myself to find out?  Maybe you lost someone to cancer in the past and if this is true than maybe it could have been avoided. If that’s the case, then you may have to deal with regret or guilt.  That’s tough, however, right now you have a get out of jail free card. You can’t be blamed for the information you didn’t have. For a long time, it wasn’t available. We’re getting past that point now.  People’s lives are on the line and we keep acting like we have no control. I can’t keep pretending. My life ended up on the line. I don’t want yours to. … More Our Food Matters

Blip or Blimp?

Sometimes I forget that cancer is just a blip on my journey.  I actually typed, blimp, first and maybe that’s a bit more accurate.  It’s larger than a blip, but still only a fraction of my story. I was recently reminded that cancer is just a catalyst in my life.  It comes around to get … More Blip or Blimp?

The Golden Goddess Story – Chapter Four – Finding Faith

How exactly one does this I’m not sure.  In fact, the thought made me laugh. Nevertheless, I am now on a spiritual quest and I have faith that the universe is going to help me along the path.  Do you hear that universe?” … More The Golden Goddess Story – Chapter Four – Finding Faith

The woman that went through chemo is quite foreign to me.  I have … More The Golden Goddess Story – Chapter Three – Chemo Lessons

Cancer Stories

There are a lot of books about cancer.  It can be hard to know which books you should read.  For every book I write a review on, five more are discarded.  This isn’t to say that they were not important, only that other books provide more complete info, are better organized, or contain a clearer … More Cancer Stories

A Book Review: Love, Medicine, & Miracles by Bernie S. Siegel M.D.

Doctor Bernie shares a lot of life changing, lifesaving information in his book Love, Medicine, & Miracles.  The title is very fitting for the contents you’ll find inside the cover.  The book was first published in 1986.  You might think that the information would be dated, but it isn’t.  Instead it reaffirms my belief that … More A Book Review: Love, Medicine, & Miracles by Bernie S.
