Hearing the 3 words, "You have cancer" changes one forever. After coming through a Stage-4 Appendix cancer diagnosis in May of 2013, I dedicate my life to helping people on their cancer journey find integrated body, mind, and spirit solutions. I believe in a whole-body, holistic approach to wellness. I am a trained Shaman and Energy Healer, and a Radical Remission certified teacher and coach. Personally, I blended the very best in Western medicine with many (CAM), complimentary alternative healing modalities.
At every chemo treatment I wore my shaman's hat from Peru!
In May of 2013, at the age of 54, I was diagnosed with Stage-4 Appendix cancer and in total shock! Everything happened so quickly. I followed the doctors' recommended treatment plans, which included a hysterectomy and initial tumor debulking, four rounds of chemotherapy, while preparing for HIPEC surgery in September of 2013. HIPEC surgery is considered "cutting edge" medicine, where after tumor debulking 'hot chemo' is put inside your belly to get anything microscopic. September 9, 2013 is the day I was told there was NED-No Evidence of Disease for the first time! Mine was a long healing process and probably took a good 4 years before I began feeling like myself again. I am forever grateful for my team at Loyola University Medical Center and Dr. Gerard Abood.

I combined the very best modern medicine had to offer with many complimentary alternative energy healing modalities. My sister, Eileen, was my caregiver for a year and a half. Her family lovingly took me in their home and allowed my care to take precedence over everything else. I hit the jackpot in caregivers! Eileen is a wellness consultant with a PhD in Holistic Health.

THIS IS WHAT I DID TO INCREASE MY CHANCES IN HEALING:
Food was my medicine! Lots of juicing!
Eliminated dairy, sugar, processed foods
Color Light Therapy/Lumalight by Spectrahue
BioMat Heat Therapy
Medicinal Accupuncture at Harvard Medical School
Vibrational Therapy with VibroAcoustics
Faith healing with Mark Earlix, John of God and the Chimayo Sanctuary in NM
Prayer of friends, family, prayer groups, and church
I incorporated all of the 9 healing factors in Radical Remission in my life without even realizing it.
Bottomline, I am here to remind you, "You are not you diagnosis! Your body is amazing and holds miraculous healing capabilities!" I am so blessed to be alive and cannot wait to empower those currently on their own personal cancer journey.
