If you have ever known someone with cancer or another serious illness, then you’ve probably offered up the words, “Let me know if I can do anything to help!” It’s well meaning and generous, but it often doesn’t happen. Here’s why.
People going through hard times usually WON’T follow up for help.
Your loved one with cancer is overwhelmed. They are hearing way too much information and are busy with more doctor visits than ever. Add to that: having to make some very serious decisions regarding their treatment.
If they are of the people pleasing kind (like myself,) then they also may not want to inconvenience anyone. They might think that someone is only offering to be polite (or just don’t know what else to say!)
If they are choosing a more holistic, natural, or integrative route, then they are busy independently researching, drastically changing their diet and lifestyle, and might even be traveling out of the country for the best care.
They may believe that their choice is too different or that people won’t know the unique tasks, food preparation, etc. that comes with a more unconventional treatment plan. OR worst yet- concerned visitors may bring some negative energy or disagree with their treatment options.
This is why you JUST HELP and with absolutely no agenda.
My friend and fellow holistic cancer survivor, Chris Wark has created what I wish I would have had after my diagnosis, a FREE guide giving you the MOST IMPORTANT questions to ask your oncologist:
It’s unsettling to know that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will get a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. That’s CRAZY when you think about it. For me I think about my two sisters and me. ONE of the three of us got cancer. I’m so grateful that me getting cancer (and healing it naturally) prompted them to drastically change their diet and lifestyle.
I don’t do very much sale-sy stuff here on the blog much AT ALL, but I know about some REALLY great Black Friday discounts and promo codes and had to share! It’s definitely the time of year to stock up on these things or make that Vitamix purchase you’ve been putting off!

Each fall I make a big purchase of all of the natural remedies I use to keep my family healthy through the colder winter months here in Georgia.
These are seriously my secret sauce for avoiding infection and therefore avoiding the doctor. As with any natural remedy, they need other action steps such as sufficient rest and sleep, excellent nutrition, and consistency with use. 🙂
If you’re wanting to get these in one awesome shipment and for the cheapest price (even beating Amazon in many cases!) I recommend Vitacost.com, but just so you can compare, I’ve included links to both for each item. 🙂

Happy shopping and healing!
So you decided NOT to run or race for a cure this year because you don’t agree with where the money is going? Still wanting to make a difference to support non-toxic cancer research and awareness? Well you’re in the perfect place!
Every year MILLIONS of Americans will give their hard earned money to a conventional cancer charity in memory of a precious loved one impacted by cancer. From this, BILLIONS of dollars will be used to fund more research on harmful, carcinogenic, patentable chemicals and procedures “experts” say will be the next big cure for cancer. They have no idea that holistic and alternative cancer treatment works to kill cancer while restoring your body and immune system.
Chris Wark gave a great explanation of why not to donate to some of the most popular cancer charities and how very little of your donations actually go towards helping cancer patients. It is SO worth a watch. Check it out HERE.
Also, read the financial details of both Komen and American Cancer Society and decide for yourself where you’d like your money to go. Neither organization supports research on non-toxic alternatives to chemotherapy and radiation.
But the below organizations do!
These 5 non-profits and charities are devoted COMPLETELY to making educated, holistic decisions regarding cancer treatment. I love that they are all unique in their purpose and how they are supporting people going through cancer. You can make a donation today by clicking on the red donation links below each organization. 🙂
I am just getting back from the doctor and typing with two fingers because of THIS…..all thanks to slamming my hand in the door of a Mini Cooper. Don’t let “mini” deceive you….the doors are solid!!! Total mom-brain move.
Makes typing a bit more creative and single handed. 🙂
But I didn’t want to miss telling you all about The Truth About Cancer Symposium streaming LIVE!I will actually be there in person representing our natural community group non-profit, HealingStrong, but now everyone can tune in and take part in their own homes!!!!
Hi Everyone! Lots to update you on and not enough time to blog about it, so until there’s more time I’m giving you this really delicious and versatile salad you can make in all different sizes by adjusting the recipe. It’s a healthy but not too-far-out-there statement for the next football tailgate or a healthy dish to bring to your next family gathering. It’s also anti-cancer legit enough to add to your recipe rotation if you’re healing from cancer naturally.
I hope you love it!
I hear from people often who feel they are in a salad rut or a smoothie rut with their anti-cancer diet. They want to try new things, but it’s just hard to get their minds wrapped around what exactly they should buy. Here is a fantastic resource for those of you who can identify with this. Check out my Free Anti-Cancer Printable Grocery List!
This week has been a busy one with a teething baby and revising the HealingStrong Group Leader’s Guide, but we did manage to knock out our family’s monthly grocery trip to Atlanta’s Your Dekalb Farmer’s Market. I thought my fridge looked worth sharing with you, thinking I would loved to have seen what other cancer thrivers were eating when I was newly diagnosed! So here it is in all of its overstuffed glory and a glimpse into our grocery routine as a family of 5.
Anyone who is living an anti-cancer lifestyle knows that the amount of food preparation can be daunting and our food choices can be confusing, especially when you’re a newbie. This cancer fighting salad is super easy, includes a colorful array of nutrition and can be put together in under six minutes!
