I was shocked into re-assessing what I thought was a healthy lifestyle - by my diagnosis of a very rare cancer that has no cure. With a shrug of the shoulders and devoid of any emotion or empathy, I was advised by an oncologist that I may not even see the other side of Christmas. Christmas was only six weeks away!

With nothing to lose and much to gain I started researching alternative options and began to feel more hopeful that 1 year was an achievable target. After graduating as a Nutritional Therapist Practitioner, I thought I could aim for 5 years more. After becoming a Nutritional Therapist, I immediately enrolled in Cancer Peace University for my own health goals with a diagnosis and with the ambition of helping others who would be in my position of having no hope and feeling like there are no options. After the Cancer Peace University training with Megan Van Zyl, I am confidently aiming for 20 plus years!

Knowledge is power and I feel empowered to help myself and those that seek help from me with a diagnosis. As I learned from Cancer Peace University, cancer is our body’s last ditch attempt to save itself after years of trying to get our attention. This is the LAST chance to turn your life around, don’t give up on yourself! I urge Practitioners to consider Cancer Peace University- as we only fear what we do not understand.
