Hi I’m Robin from Canada
I’ve seen both of Joe’s movies and began juicing in earnest in the last 3 or 4 months. I’m scared to even type this but I’ve decided to take the plunge. I’m a wife, a mom of three, a lawyer and a Stage IV cancer patient. I’m 49 and this is my second go-around with triple negative breast cancer. I got into the van, after getting the news and said to my husband - that’s it. I’m done. No processed food, a predominantly seed-based diet, amd I’m juicing. I’m asymtomatic which is the weird part. It was found as a fluke. Now I’m doing chemo amd working to keep my liver functioning,(lots of green leafy vegetables and green juice) so I can keep doing the treatment and get this disease under control.
Cancer is only one facet of my life, I’m busy with my kids, love to cook, read, work out, and spend time with my husband. Since juicing started - I’ve lost probably 20lbs. I’m a lean, mean fighting machine. But I have to be. We are eating the healthiest we’ve ever had.
I just watched Joe’s second movie and reqalized I don’t really have a “community” so that is why I’m writing in.
I do not “look like my cancer”as my doctor says because I’m strong, healthy and she figures I can live with this as a chronic disease going from treatment to treatment as advances are made. I’m not sure I like that idea but it’s better than not living at all..I have to be here for my kid and my husband. They are only 14, 11 and 11- yes twins! So my focus is on being the healthiest Stage IV cancer patient they’ve seen.
That is me. I’m not sure how this works but I’m willing to hear people out, be supportive and share.
