I want you to redefine previously held beliefs and concepts about how best to live fully.  In order to treat disease we must first treat the whole person - mind, body and spirit.  I understood that what was going on in my head and my heart was responsible for what happened inside of my gut (or, colon!).

There’s an unequivocal lesson to life that I try to encourage others to learn. My ultimate goal is to make you, the reader, want to jump out of your chair and feel more alive today than ever before.  If you only get one chance to live in this big, beautiful world, wouldn’t you want to spend time exploring how to get more out of your life?  Challenging it? Learning from it? Loving it? Yep, me too.

I hardly know what I’ll be doing tomorrow, because I live for today — the one thing we’re all promised.

Remember that year when your number one goal was to survive? Oh yeah, that’s right now!  They often say that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger? I’m betting on stronger. 

So here’s to making new memories, crossing off unfulfilled wishes, taking calculated risks, brushing aside uncertainty for the future, and skipping down the path less traveled to expand your horizons while daring to discover just how beautiful this thing called life really is.

You have walked tough paths before and will walk this one too while setting an example for others along the way.

Part of mental health is how well your mind processes and understands the information and experiences in your head. Your mind dictates the way you think, behave, and feel.  Your thoughts are powerful and have a direct connection to your health.  Discover how to improve mental wellness and work on your inherent self-worth, practice radical acceptance,  and release the need to control your outcome.  Learn to allow yourself to be vulnerable and live more mindfully.




The book offers a fearless appraisal of what it means to be uncertain about your future - all while juggling the intensity of family life.  There is no convenient age to receive a cancer diagnosis, but young adults, parents in particular, have to juggle a unique set of circumstances.  Life doesn't stop after your cancer diagnosis.  Bills still need to be paid,  kids need help with homework, errands need to be run, meals prepared;  there are never-ending responsibilities that caring for a family entails.  Learn how to best navigate the chaos of parenting while dealing with catastrophic illness and crisis.

Did you know that 1 out of 3 Americans are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime?  That statistic is not only alarming, but infuriating.  I went on a mission to learn everything I could about cancer following my diagnosis.  I discovered that there are seven common practices most cancer survivors use to increase their odds of beating cancer.  These best practices are the same tools that everyone can use in an effort toward prevention and what everyone needs to know for working toward improved health. We'll dive into what steps you can take today if you are sick, or just looking to protect yourself and those you love by learning habits of wellness.
