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 am originally from New Jersey and moved to Los Angeles with my family at age 12. After graduating from San Diego State University with a BA in Journalism, I had a short-stint in magazine advertising sales before landing my "dream job" with Club Med. For two years I worked at resorts in Mexico, The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic and Colorado. My husband Glenn & I met in Ixtapa, Mexico and we embarked on a two year honeymoon around the world. This was also a research project for a book we wrote called "When The Travel Bug Bites: Creative Ways to Earn, Save and Stay Abroad." I am also the author of a quote book for new graduates -- "Cheatnotes on Life: Lessons From The Classroom of Life." In 1997, we settled in San Diego and I was blessed to work part-time from home for non-profit organizations while raising our two boys. In 2010, a DCIS diagnosis changed my life. DCIS 411 is the culmination of my on-going journey and discoveries.
