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
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
it reassuring and helpful.
