Active Surveillance P L U S — Donna’s Vision

“Active surveillance” of a potential cancerous condition through periodic medical imaging in itself can be extremely stressful — and the anxiety, worry and fear of cancer developing or progressing may not go away as time goes on.   balance

Active Surveillance P L U S is my vision. It is a holistic approach to cancer prevention, risk reduction and optimal wellness — and this strategy should not be considered “alternative.”

P L U S stands for Proactive – Lifestyle – Understanding – Support

P R O A C T I V E

Action and result-oriented strategies which can help reduce cancer risk and keep us feeling empowered, supported, centered, optimistic, and healthy (body, mind & spirit). See “Proactive Breast Health Club.”

Holistic wellness is not a diet or exercise plan. It is a combination of influential factors — a way of living, thinking and being — supported by scientific evidence to be protective against cancer. See Anticancer Living: The Mix of Six

Knowledge is power. Investigate until you have a deep understanding of both your individual medical condition and how the body heals through a combination of holistic mind-body-spirit strategies.

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. Glenn & I live in San Diego with our two boys: Skyler, the yogi and Cody, the buddha! I enjoy running, yoga and working on projects that bring more peace, health and light to our world.

    I’ve been living a cancer resistant lifestyle since my DCIS diagnosis in 2012 and haven’t had the standard of care treatment though I did submit to two MRIs and a second biopsy in 2015. My friend Tim is now faced with a cancer diagnosis of a lesion on his vocal chord and is told it is: keratinizing well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma.
    Do you happen to know of any online support groups for a different but also common cancer diagnosis?
