EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016
I am raising money to help educate people about the natural/holistic options available to assist with the treatment and/or prevention of cancer and reproductive conditions. In 2011, my mother-in-law was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer and was given 6 months to live. When she initially began chemotherapy, it caused the cancer to become more aggressive. It had metastasized to 3 different places in her body, so she began to incorporate natural/holistic treatment into her lifestyle (along with her Chemotherapy) and immediately began to see improvement. She was able to live another 4 years before passing in November 2015. In January 2015, my dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He did not include natural/holistic treatments into his lifestyle and he passed in April 2015, 4 months later. Although I am certain that the difference in the types of cancer played a role in the outcome, I am just as certain that natural treatment could have helped. There is a severe lack of awareness when it comes to natural/holistic health, especially for people who reside in urban areas. That is why this cause is VERY IMPORTANT and worth supporting.
Sister Speak Atlanta is a holistic health fair serving the Southside of Atlanta. Its primary objective is to increase the success rate of medical treatments and ease the stress of lifestyle changes that come with chronic conditions. It will also lessen the number of occurences by teaching prevention through healthy lifestyle choices and natural health options that are available to assist with treatment.
