When I was 14 years old I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Stage I. The doctors treated me with cobalt, a form of radiation therapy to kill cancer cells.
The therapy destroyed my thyroid.
My maternal grandmother, Grace Roller, saw that this therapy was not supporting me. And so when I left the hospital she took on the responsibility of my healing.
Fasting, juicing, herbal teas, sunshine, exercise, clean water, yoga, meditation – and simple raw foods. These were the tool of my grandmother’s healing arsenal. The cobalt treatment drained my body of its life force. My grandmother’s treatment renewed my body, my mind and my spirit. Gradually, my health and strength returned. I now run Wellness Ranch in southeast Texas, a premiere therapeutic facility with 14 horses. I lead workshops, treat Olympic level horses, and consult with people throughout the country. I am 53 years old and I am cancer-free.
