CANCER PLAN OF ATTACK:A quick guide for those newly diagnosed with cancer
Although Christa achieved a miracle in going from stage iv to clear scans in just four months, she is still facing two more years of treatment: 6 months active – chemo, blood tests, and surgery; and 1 1/2 years passive to keep her strong and healthy enough to fight the effects of the chemo and cancer – supplements, acupuncture, hyperbaric oxygen, high dose vitamin C IVs, organic diet and juicing.
She is tremendously grateful for all of the fantastic fundraising efforts on her behalf already, but this is THE BIG ONE dedicated entirely to her, and featuring all of her favorite things and things that will change your life!
