Reducing The Risk Of Disease Through Plant-Based Eating
I can’t thank Alison enough for her support and expert knowledge she has shown me over the past few months! In March 2022 I had a devastating diagnosis of advanced cancer.

After surviving my cancer diagnosis at the age of 18 and over a decade of committing to my health with consistent exercise and “cleaning up”the kitchen, I was at a cross roads of long term remission with this fear of a new diagnosis post chemotherapy/radiation and what else can I do?
