Conquer Cancer on Your Terms

You Have Healthy Alternatives

by Karen Garcia

Conquer Cancer on Your Terms is a resource guide which grew from the passion Karen Garcia felt after her diagnosis of breast cancer and the discoveries she made researching alternative treatments --- those outside of the standard options originally given her. 


Because there is so much information available regarding alternative cancer therapies, it can be overwhelming and difficult to know where to start. This resource guide is Karen Garcia's attempt to help those diagnosed with cancer, along with their families and loved ones, have a place to begin. Books, DVDs, websites, and more … all are included in this guide so you can pick and choose a starting place without having to search in lots of locations or spend hours looking at search engine results. Karen's intent in writing and publishing this guide is to hopefully be a friend to others diagnosed with cancer and help them “take a deep breath” and know there are other options.

About the author

In January 2010, Karen Garcia heard the words from a surgeon no one wants to hear: “You have breast cancer. ” Turning to a friend for comfort, Karen shared with her the treatment options the surgeon had detailed…surgery, chemotherapy, and possibly radiation. At that point, Karen heard words from her friend she hadn’t expected to hear: “Take a deep breath. You need to know those aren’t your only options.” This book is the compilation of what Karen has learned thus far as a result of the journey she took after hearing her friend’s words. That journey has included only alternative cancer therapies, excluding surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. It has certainly been a road less traveled and less understood by the majority of those diagnosed with cancer and their doctors. But it has also been one that’s made all the difference for Karen and how she has chosen to conquer her cancer and live her life. Now a freelance writer, editor/proofreader and transcriptionist, Karen is the mother of three grown children and five grandchildren. She grew up in the western New York area but is now a long-time resident of St. Charles county in Missouri.
