You Did What? Saying “NO” to Conventional Cancer Treatment

I just finished reading this fascinating book….it is a story about Hollie Quinn, a 27 year old woman who was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer in 2002 while she was 38 weeks pregnant. Hollie and her husband Patrick share how they came to a decision to reject conventional treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy, and instead, chose an intense lifestyle change and an “alternative” treatment path that would lead to health and healing.  I highly recommend this book. Check out their facebook page:

Thanks to Kay Ashley for recommending this book and also “Herbal Medicine, Healing and Cancer” by Donald Yance.  This is the book that was instrumental in Hollie’s decision to seek treatment at the Centre for for Natural Healing in Oregon.

About Donna Pinto

I was born and raised in New Jersey and moved to the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles when I was 12. I graduated with a BA in Journalism/Advertising from San Diego State University. After a short stint in magazine ad sales in LA, I was offered my dream job working for Club Med. I spent two years working at resorts in Mexico, The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic and Colorado. My husband Glenn & I met while working at Club Med in Ixtapa, Mexico. We returned to "real life/jobs" for three years before we embarked on a two year honeymoon around the world. Together we wrote a book called "When The Travel Bug Bites: Creative Ways to Earn, Save and Stay Abroad." I am also the author of "Cheatnotes on Life: Lessons From The Classroom of Life," a quote book for new graduates. Becoming a mom changed my life and I was fortunate to work part-time from home with many amazing nonprofits. In 2010, a DCIS diagnosis inspired me to an investigation that culminated in creating DCIS 411 and Give Wellness.
