In December of 2014 I was diagnosed with stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma cancer. This is a pediatric cancer of the muscles and bones. At that moment my life changed forever. In 2015 I went through one year of radical chemotherapy and 5 weeks of radiation, on my face, neck and spine. At 33 years old I went into complete remission, and have been for over 4 years.
During my journey I used integrative medicine. I combined the current and modern technology of chemotherapy and radiation, along with alternative and holistic approaches to rebuild my immune system, and heal my body, mind and spirit.
Some modalities I utilized were a anti-immflammatory diet, wellness + life coaching, naturopathic treatments, kangan alkaline water, CBD, yoga, massage, acupuncture, meditation, breath work, creative writing, enjoying life, laughing, traveling a ton, herbal and nutritional supplements, juicing, and a close connection with God and nature.
I believe God kept me here for a reason, as I was given a cancer death sentence. Today I share my experience, strength and hope, in hopes to inspire others.
