Skin Cancer critical? Enjoy life? Gary does too!
Gary, the publisher, grew up during the 40’s and 50’s in
Massachusetts. Most people didn’t get any type of cancer until they were older.
There really wasn’t any focus on good health, prevention and being on an
exercise program. Like many, he enjoyed a more active lifestyle.
He spent lots of time in the sun and ate the mainstream American diet. In his 30’s, he began working out at the gym and taking a lot of vitamin supplements.
At age 47, he was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma cancer, head and neck cancer or throat cancer.
This type of skin cancer can grow inside your body, although it originally appeared on his skin.
He was shocked, filled with fears, emotions and questions. “Will I survive?”..He determined YES!
He chose an alternative medicine approach focused on healthy eating/lifestyle with the guidance of several counselors.
However his cancer continued inside his throat and he feared that if it doesn’t stop soon, he may not survive.
At that critical and frightening point, he began to consent with all the conventional treatments the medical doctors were advising; chemotherapy, major surgery, followed by radiation.
The treatments almost killed him and to this day (since 1990) he deals with life-changing side effects.
Given 5 years to survive, later told 10, he’s been surviving since 1990.
He wants to awaken you to skin cancer and how serious any cancer can be. This site is his passion to share his experiences and the experiences of others who wish to share their stories.
You can find support, encouragement and help making decisions through him and others as well.
He believes a healthy diet and lifestyle are essential to all healing and prevention.
Gary believes that this should be the first choice when facing disease and conventional medicine as the alternative.
He strongly recommends seeing counselors (alternative and conventional) before deciding on your own.

"MELANOMA : “NO BIG DEAL ” IT'S JUST SKIN CANCER!
My name is Nick and I’m 56 yrs. old and this is part of my story. Let
me tell you, I was like a lot of people out there and I had no idea that
skin cancer was anything bad. I had Basal cell back in 2007, but that
was no big deal and it was removed and that was the end of that. No one
told me that it was a type of skin cancer (I looked it up on my
computer). But still no big deal, it would not kill me.
But I did know the word "Melanoma"....." --by Nick
