Secrets of Success

Research And The Power Of Information



Whatever your condition, whatever the prognosis, empower yourself with information and research. As a cancer patient given 60/40 odds against 5 year survival 14 years ago I know that by taking control and doing my own research made a huge difference in the fact that I am still here.

More Information:

At the time of diagnosis of 2nd stage breast cancer I requested and received all files and test results and proceeded to investigate and understand my disease. I am proud to say that although I have had 2 recurrences and developed a new cancer, I am still here and reasonably healthy otherwise.
