Welcome, You have gone through a lot in your young life. I am glad you are here in Spark and still here on God's green Earth!

I have never had Cancer, but in a bone marrow biopsy that I had 2 years ago I too had cancer cells showing up in my marrow.. There were not too many of them so the Doctor said I was to watch and wait... What! I was on a somewhat vegan diet at the time.. but I would have cheat days from time to time.. an occasional milk in my coffee when we were out.. a frozen yogurt on really HOT days when I was feeling down... I would taste some real Mac and cheese sometimes for old times sake.. But once the cells were found boy did I clean up my diet..

No more milk products for me... Cancer loves the protein in cows milk to help it grow... so long story short... I was having some other health issues (I am on disability from autoimmune diseases) My blood work got really goofy so the doc sent me for another bone marrow biopsy and my marrow was absolutely clear of the cancer cells! They are no longer there! Gonzo! I was so pleased!

First of all welcome! I too am a recovered cancer victim . I became vegan as soon as I could after two operations and much treatment . That was 10 years ago now and I have not looked back . I feel very positive and focused and am very well now. I hope you continue to improve and look forward to a carefree life now.
My biggest problem to begin with after treatment was weight gain but I have been able to control it by green smoothies and juicing . I juice every day and grow my own wheatgrass which I believe is what provides me with the best cancer fighting nutrients . I have a daughter living in Newzealand who has been diagnosed with pre cancer cells so I am hoping that I can persuade her to follow my diet . I wish you well, blessed be .

Hello everyone,

I'm not sure if I've introduced myself before, but I've had a long break so why not do it again (or for the first time).
I'm 23 from New Zealand, I'm a student but on a break from study as I've suffered a very intense year. In October 2013 I got diagnosed with a form of uterine cancer. Since then I've been through so much; chemotherapy, multiple infections, 2 major surgeries, drastic weight loss(the unhealthy kind), rapid weight gain and even spent a few weeks in a wheel chair.
I've since gone into remission and gained my strength back. I can do so many things I couldn't before and I'm loving it. However, I've gained so much weight since my last surgery that don't fit my clothes anymore.
So... I'm back to tackle weight loss, toning and improving my health again (hopefully it works this time)
Good luck everyone and don't be too scared to ask questions :)
Much love,
Sushi
