Any suggestions?  Someone mentioned a favorite book of their's in the war against Melanoma in the past month or two.  I forgot to write down the title.  I already have some books and basically know how I should eat and live, but I'm always looking for more information/recipes, etc. 

What are your favorites?

Hoping for a cure! 


Hey Terrie,

One book I read that gave me the motivation to start making changes in my eating habits was "Anti-Cancer, A New Way of Life."  It's not a recipe book but a good book for why you should really watch what you are putting in your body.  It's just an all around good book for a positive outlook in this battle against cancer.  The other thing I watched which was another big motivation for me was the Documentary "Forks over Knifes."  It's real hard to watch that documentary and not think that a diet based more from plants is the way to go.


"Eating well through Cancer"    Holly Clegg & Gerald Miletollo, MD     Ccomplements of Merck Oncology

I'm me, not a statistic. Praying to not be one for years yet.

Hi Terrie,

I am a huge advocate of a good diet and exercise!  I've practiced what I've preached my whole life and STILL developed melanoma.  Despite continued adherence to such methods, I progressed to Stage IV.  I still utilize a healthy diet of mostly fruits and vegetables and run several miles most days.  But...like Jerry alluded to in another post, curcumin is the only thing data supports that by EATING actually changes melanoma.  Here's the data:


And....here's a rant I had on my blog about folks pushing certain diets as a "cure" for cancer.  Would that it were so easy.  Funny and reassuring, how so many have dropped off the richter scale!  But, if you're interested:


Wishing you my best, Celeste


Thank you Brian, Jerry, and Celeste!
