Please summarize your healing story in 100 words or less “you have terminal, secondary breast cancer, metastasised in your lungs, a life expectancy of 12 months, zero percent chance of 18months +, go home and put your affairs in order” Seriously my life contract is not with this funny little oncology man, sitting in front of me. I’m sure he means well, but my life is not in the hands of a man dressed in long socks, sandals and walking shorts. I couldn't really hear him talking however I could hear was the whisper of my own heart. So I listened..........Be Happy, Go Natural, Be Grateful. I went home + did that - HAPPY, NATURAL & GRATEFUL. This was my second diagnosis of cancer, the first time I did the medical treatment - that treatment didn't seem like an option now that my second diagnosis was considered terminal.

Please tell us your healing story in as much detail as you would like:

As mentioned above: I withdrew myself from the medical system and just undertook natural therapies.

acupuncture, chiro, diet, herbs, supplements (vit c + apricot kernels), energy healing. I did what felt right for as long as it felt right.

I meditated, I trained in karate (non contact), I walked my dog. I was totally focussed on wellness.

I acknowledged my cancer + asked what it was here to teach me? I asked my cancer for a little more space to breath. I didn't hate it, banish it or wish it was gone. I did not FLIGHT. It was part of me, I had created it. My body could un-create it, work with it, learn. I lived very presently. I didn't expect to heal, I just asked for a little more time + better quality of life. I loved. I laughed. I surrender. I let go of any EXPECTED OUTCOME. I realised that in any given moment this was as good as life got, and then again now + now + now.

I lived with cancer, with cancer came GRACE.

We lived together happily gratefully + then I healed.

I felt very well so well we decided to have a baby (with out medical tests to see if I was "fine") I felt fine so we got pregnant. We only had 6 weeks to conceive - I was having children after 40 🙂

My husband was like "WHAT! we have been through 3,000 earthquakes (we live in Christchurch NZ), we can't get to our house (EQ damaged), we have relocated both of our businesses (+ one had to be relocated again), we are staying at your sisters - there is no action happening." It's okay I booked two nights away! Thankfully my husband performs very well under pressure + 4 weeks before my 40th Birthday our one and one child was born.

EDITOR’S NOTE: As of October 2020, Diane is thriving post-diagnosis. Her update:

I have since had DNA testing and follow the recommendations given by those results. In response to the current global crisis: The unsettling times that are affecting the world, that we are now living in – for many of us in lockdown, remind me of 10 years ago when I was unwell and some of the thoughts that helped me get through. It’s okay to be sad, to surrender to what’s happening in the here and now, and knowing with every cell in my body that this too shall pass. Surrendering to this moment, breathing in the light and breathing out anything that I can let go of. 

Do you have any thoughts about what may have caused your health challenge in particular, or what causes it in general?

I am IgA deficiency and as a child in the 80's was given A LOT of broad spectrum antibiotics for re-occuring chest infections.

This lead to autoimmune diseases through my teens + 20's.

And cancer at 31yrs old.

I was severely compromises after taking the antibiotics that the medical profession had recommended in my teens.
