"Life is good."
I was diagnosed with stage IV MBC to my bones April 2018. On diagnosis I was shocked. First breast cancer, then cancer on my bones everywhere. My doctor said no cure. I immediately became pro active researching nutrition and ways to help myself. I am now 11 months out BC in remission and Mets healing. Life is good. I feel better and better each day and will continue to follow my book, “Cancer... My NEW Normal!” It works for me and I am hopeful it works for everyone.
We are living in exciting times for cancer research. My book highlights that and embraces it. It also embraces eating healthy, exercising, and staying positive and focused for a cure. I am living my New Normal because I don’t want cancer back.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 38 after I had my daughter. My breast wasn’t producing milk even though she was biting it. I asked my doctor about it after I had her in 2006 and my doctor ignored me. I pushed and finally in 2008 I was told I had had METS from the get-go and that is had now spread to my lymph nodes and my liver.
“Mr. Marcus, you have kidney, lung, and brain cancer. Stage 4. We are going to monitor you for the next 24 hours but there is not much we can do for you here. You need to go home and start making arrangements. At most, you have two years to live.”
I had a red circle on the right side of my breast, and I had lost twenty pounds despite the fact that I was not on a diet. When I went to the doctor their tests couldn’t find anything wrong, so I told them to check out this red spot.
My husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC). He had a total left nephrectomy on our 35th wedding Anniversary on Sept. 10, 2012. At that time there was no treatment that was available.
