ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
The Anti-Cancer Club™ grew out of founder Pat Wetzel’s personal experience with cancer.
From Pat Wetzel:
In June 2009, I was diagnosed with nodal marginal zone lymphoma (MZL). MZL is a rare non-Hodgkins lymphoma.
After an array of treatments, I found myself wondering “what next?” There was no one to turn to; no place to go. My cancer was beaten back, but not beaten. I was cast adrift until my next appointment with my oncologist.
Waiting passively was not in my makeup and I had serious questions. What about nutrition during and after chemo? Was there an alternative to steroids for the joint swelling and extreme pain I experienced from one of my medications? How can I manage this fatigue and get my strength and stamina back?
I needed information because I had to DO SOMETHING. Cancer was turning my life upside down, and I needed answers.
So learning about cancer and health became my new focus. At times it was start and stop. I tried going vegan, but life without cheese, I decided, wasn’t worth living. I learned about glycemic indices, the nutritional content of various foods and about the sources of my food. I consciously filled my circles with caring people who had “good energy”. I started meditating for stress reduction.
And now, 7 years later, my life is dramatically different.
My mission with the Anti-Cancer Club is to give you hope and inspiration. You can take charge of your care, treatment and recovery.
