A Note From Jan — by Jan Adrian, MSW

Dear Friends,

The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen workshop on May 5 in Los Gatos was awesome! As Rebecca Katz was doing her cooking demonstration, Jeanne Wallace was commenting on the scientific reasons Rebecca was using specific ingredients. Turns out some of the same things that produce "yum" also help our immune systems and "talk" to our genes.

I again took home some new "tools" that I can translate into improved health of my body. I'm so glad we video recorded this workshop and will have DVDs available soon. I want everyone to have access to this empowering information. Our goal is to have the DVDs in our webstore by mid-June.

Creating two free Cancer as a Turning Point™ conferences is keeping me super busy this year. We have exceptional programs planned both in Spartanburg, SC, and Sacramento, CA. Since our space is limited, I think it's possible they could both fill up. They are both open for registration and I recommend registering early if you want to be sure to go.

In the spirit of healing,

by Nancy McKay

    The needle dented and then penetrated my skin high up on the underside of my right arm. The doctor himself administered the first vaccine injection. Being an oncological surgeon as well as a cancer researcher, he knew the high density lymph node neighborhood.

    I held onto the promised possibility: we might beat the odds, I might live beyond the prognoses, I might hold grandchildren, I might become an old woman. That's why I had swallowed all those damnable cytoxyn pills.
