No one wants to be told that he or she has a major, life-threatening disease. And cancer is definitely one we don’t want to have. Sadly, we’ve seen the incidence of cancer rise quite a bit in the past several years. If you were diagnosed with cancer, what would you do? Would you try to learn as much as you could about your illness and play an active role in your treatment? Diane Brandon is joined this week by Kathleen O’Keefe Kanavos, a two-time cancer survivor. Ms. Kanavos had an aggressive form of breast cancer – twice – and struggled to save her own life. She not only underwent conventional treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation treatment, but also pursued some natural and alternative modalities. She shares with us what she did and the effect she feels it all had on her and on her health. Hers is an illustrative story.
