Editor's Note: We are sad to report that this person has passed away as of 2019. However, at the Radical Remission Project we aim to leave all profiles visible, even after a death, so that we may all learn from others' healing journeys.
Condition is stable or shrinking
I tried conventional medical treatment, but it did not heal my condition, so then I used only non-conventional treatments, at which point I healed.

Radical Remission was key in my healing story. My cancer has a 20% survival rate (according to Google) and I was determined to do everything in control to be part of that group. I didn't know if I was meant to live, but I know I had to do everything in my power to try. I attacked the 9 steps of Radical Remission like a to-do list.
Chapter 1 - Radically Changing Your Diet.
I hired a nutritionist who increased plant-based foods and eliminated sugar & gluten, but I got worse.
I hired a second nutritionist who put me on a vegan diet, but I got worse.
I finally worked with Optimal Terrain (Nasha Winters) and Remission Nutrition who put me on a ketogenic diet to stop feeding the cancer and heal what we identified as my leaky gut. I continue on a paleo/keto type diet today (sugar-free, gluten-free, alcohol-free, soy-free, lecithin-free, dairy-free).
Chapter 2 - Taking Control of Your Health
I had very frank conversations with my oncologist and questioned every treatment recommendation. I become a partner with him.
I read every cancer and healing book and DVD I was drawn to.
I took opiod painkillers because I couldn't heal with the severe pain, but worked diligently to reduce as fast as I could. I'm drug-free today.
I started working from home to use the needed energy for healing rather than commuting.
I tried some non-conventional methods: CBD Oil, Essential Oils topically (frankincense, mirth), Infrared Sauna to detox, Coffee enemas to detox, Salt Cave
Chapter 3 - Following Your Intuition
I followed non-traditional treatments that I was drawn to: Acupuncture, Exercise and personal trainers, Geomancy shaman to adjust the energy of my home
Chapter 4 - Using Herbs & Supplements
At one point I was taking over 50 pills a day (unequicably the hardest thing for me).
I'm reduced to a handful now. Highlights: curcumin; selenium; vitamins D, K, B6, B12, A; berbadin, NAC, fish oil
Chapter 5 - Releasing Suppressed Emotions
This was essential to my recovery. I got a fantastic therapist.
I started writing and journaling. I found Caringbridge.org a great resource to express emotions through treatment.
Chapter 6 - Increasing Positive Emotions
I started watching funny YouTube videos curated by my son (10 y.o.) minimum 10 minutes laugh a day
Disney movies became a staple
Listen to 528 Hz music for healing frequency
Chapter 7 - Embracing Social Support
Embrace fundraisers on my behalf: GoFundMe started by work, my son's school
Embrace meal train from moms from my son's school
Chapter 8 - Deepening Your Spiritual Connection
I jumped into this two feet first. It was the newest to me and what I found most fulfilling.
Chakra readings, Crystals, Explore working with angels, Getting confirmed at my Episcopal Church, Goddess ceremonies, Have my Akaski record read, John of God Retreat (Omega Institute), Kripalu R&R, Meditation and get trained in Transcendental Meditation, New & full moon ceremonies, Reiki, Visiting mediums, Work with an astrologer
Chapter 9 - Having Strong Reasons for Living
This was the easiest, I wanted to see my then 8 year old son graduate high school & college, get married and become a grandmother.
I rededicated my life to helping cancer patients find hope and stressed-out, workaholic parents take steps to not end up sick like me
There is no one reason I got cancer. It was a collection of environmental, emotional and medical factors.
Environmental: I was raised on an Air Force base by a mechanic father next to a limestone quarry. I used nonstick appliances, microwaves, toxic cleaning chemicals.
Emotional: I repressed emotions by never properly dealing with a sexual assault or the death of my parents.
Medical: I have HPV and a bad GI system
