    and feeling better each day, and found alternative treatments that work for you.  I agree that being informed is truly important.

    I have an uncle who had colon cancer and beat it.  I remember that he wore a sort of necklace around his neck that was a drip system, feeding in chemo (?) at a constant low rate to fight his cancer.  He also had a doctor that advised drastic dietary changes.  He was on an organic diet, I know he got a juicer and had carrot juice daily.  He also has a loving wife and family who were there throughout his ordeal to make his life as easy and comfortable as possible.

    My mother has a lump in one breast that just got biopsied.  We will find out the results next week, and are all holding our breath and thinking positive thoughts.

    Thank you for sharing your own story.  I hesitate to say you were one of the lucky ones, considering the procedures you had to endure.  But I'm glad you were able to endure and come out stronger on the other side :)

      No one ever talked to me about diet. Never. The only time I was supposed to not eat something was when my white blood count was low after chemo and I could not eat fruits and vegs. No one ever, not all the doctors I saw talked to me about what I ate. That in it's self was amazing.
