Frequently Asked Questions


I have just been diagnosed with _____ cancer. I am considering many conventional and alternative treatments, including ______. I am seeking your opinion on my choice of treatments. What do you think I should do?

Thank you for writing and sharing a bit of your own cancer story. I commend you for seeking all options for treating your cancer and taking charge of your health. You are participating in what I like to call "active hope." I cannot offer any professional individualized advice on your treatment choices. They are very personal and specific to you. Do as much research as you can asking many questions regarding outcomes (pro and con, good and bad etc.) for both the conventional and alternative treatments. Weigh all the information in both your head and heart, and when you reach your choices, believe in them with 1000% conviction.

You will find much helpful information in my book and also on my web site's page of Q&As and links regarding your cancer. Your goal is to make your decision based on information, not just an emotional decision.

My best wishes to you for health, healing, and hope!
