After getting the news of my breast cancer, I started to wonder, how did I get it, was it from my diet, stress and the environment. I did so much along with one of my brothers who stayed with me to help me get through this.
We researched about how food can contribute to me getting cancer. So I completely changed my diet. I actually started after getting the news of my cancer but it took a lot to be able to do it. I started to eat healthier.
I cut out fast foods, sugar and buying organic and eating more cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, Kale, cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts and relieving stress by doing things to help me relax. In the meantime, I haven’t started any treatment.
I was not happy with either doctor so I went ahead and made an appointment with Dr. Reza to get a third opinion. This Doctor concurred with the other Doctors diagnoses and there was no other treatment but to have Chemotherapy first or face having the tumor spread to my organs. It was already suggesting that it is on my spine based on the scans done. The Doctor wanted to start the chemotherapy to shrink the tumor on the breast and lymph nodes and get the suspicious lesion on my spine.
