I was 8 years old when the movie Terms of Endearment was released.  As most of you know, Debra Winger’s character battles cancer in the film and the movie had a powerful and lasting impact on me.

It was the first time I really thought about what would happen if my mom died.  I not only understood the point-of-view of the children in the film, but on a deep and intuitive level, I felt how painful it would be for my mom to have to say goodbye to her children. This tore me up inside as a child and still affects me today. In fact, it’s the movie I pull out whenever I want to cry (I know you know what I’m talkin’ about!)Now, as a mom myself, my brain goes to that ‘what if’ place more often than I’d like to admit.

What if that happened to me? What would happen to my little guy? What if it ruined his life? …what if?…what if?

I know we all have those moments where our brains go there and usually we can blow it off. But once my dear friend Padma, passed away a few years ago from cancer before her 40th birthday, the gremlins in my brain took over.  I was destroyed by Padma’s death.  I still overflow with emotion about it from time to time.  I miss her and I’m angry she is gone.  And, I am afraid of cancer.

This is a bit more of a “personal” email than you’re used to getting from me…

but I really feel the need to share as it could save your life (or someone you love).

And not wanting to live out Terms of Endearment myself, I am even more committed to being and staying healthy.

This is why The Truth About Cancer stood out.  It addresses those questions and fears that run around our minds when it comes to cancer; covering cancer treatments and preventions.

This dramatic docu-series follows one man’s “quest for the cures”, as he travels the country interviewing the topmost doctors and scientists and the patients they treat.

It’s going to be an amazing multi-part, investigative report mini-series that will broadcast to the world (for free) next week, October 13th – 22nd.

I wanted to tell you about it because according to the World Health Organization, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.

And while it may not be you that gets the unfortunate diagnoses, it’s almost certain that it will affect someone in your life that you love.

Just like it has mine.

The Truth About Cancer will teach proven protocols to treat cancer but also what you and your family can do to ensure that you prevent cancer from ever occurring.

Here’s a sneak peak at what you’ll find out:

  • The true history of Chemotherapy
  • How to separate the myths from the facts about cancer & hormones
  • How emotions affect cancer
  • Advanced treatment methods from healing vaccines, to sound and electricity
  • Treating cancer with epigenetic switches, peptides, and more
  • Real stories from cancer conquerors
  • Advanced breakthroughs, treatment options, and prevention methods from over 90 experts

Go here to watch all the episodes for free. I will be.
