About the Book

It started with the discovery of a little bump on the side of her neck at a birthday luncheon. It turned into two years of back-to-back cancers, the harshest chemo, a stem cell transplant, a mastectomy and reconstruction. In this book, Laren Rusch Watson, a Board Certified Holistic Health and Nutrition Coach shares the emotional rollercoaster that she went through first with the shock of her diagnosis and then with reconciling the necessary chemical cocktail with her organic, all natural belief system; she shares it all in her typical casual style as if you were having coffee. The second part of the book she aims to help cancer patients through the difficult time just after diagnosis and through treatment by organizing all that she learned into seven sections, from food and health information to life altering lessons, to trippy spiritual experiences. This book will support the newly diagnosed cancer patient in finding strength and optimism through the hardest time of their life.

About the Author

Laren Rusch Watson became passionate about organic food and nutrition when her kids were born, wanting to feed them in the most nutritious way possible. It soon became an obsession and then a career. After 25 years as a graphic designer, in 2010 she decided to go back to school to become a Holistic Health and Nutrition Coach. Little did she know that her hardest work lay ahead when just three years later she was diagnosed with not one, but two aggressive and hard to treat cancers at essentially the same time. Through combining eastern and western approaches, she managed to beat the odds and learn some big lessons about the body, mind and spirit along the way. She lives with her husband of 18 years, her two teenage kids and her loyal dog just outside of Seattle, Washington.
