Sallie Felton Interview & 'Breast Cancer Exposed'

Posted Sep 03 2009 10:01am

Bce200pixels At noon today (EST), I'll be on the air with life coach and international talk radio host Sallie Felton. Tune in live or anytime to Sallie's "A Fresh Start" program. Sallie will be interviewing me about my photography book, Breast Cancer Exposed: The Connection Between Food And Survival.

My second book shows, through Joyce Tenneson's poignant and sensitive photos, the results of my mastectomy. It also describes, in my words, the all-important connection between the food choices we make and our health and well being.

I want to raise awareness that there are costs for putting overly processed and chemically treated food into our bodies — and often we pay with our health or our lives. I firmly believe that changing my diet dramatically changed, and ultimately saved, my life.

The inspiration for this book came to me one night in April 2003 when I was just starting to write Becoming Whole, The Story Of My Complete Recovery From Breast Cancer. Asking for guidance led to this realization: For people to truly understand my message, I had to be willing to expose my body and show what I had experienced.

It was terrifying to consider having these photos taken. But I trusted my instincts and my friend and photography mentor, Joyce Tenneson... and took a leap of faith. I hope you’ll order a copy (scroll down) for yourself, a relative or friend facing a mastectomy, or for anyone facing a serious illness or other obstacles. And I hope you’ll find it reassuring and helpful.

*Note: A portion of the proceeds of this book will be donated to the Maine Media Workshops and to (PCRM) Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine.
