The diagnosis of cancer can put you or someone you love smack dab in the middle of unfamiliar territory. And, when that happens, as a survivor or caregiver, having immediate access to cancer support and resources saves time, reduces stress and can make your unexpected journey a little smoother. But, what about your job? Should you keep working? What should you say or not say to your coworkers or boss? Our first guest, Monica Bryant, is the Chief Operating Officer for Triage Cancer. A non-profit serving survivors, caregivers, and professionals by providing a comprehensive resource for connecting to information and experts right when you need it the most.

Most importantly, CSC provides a home-like setting for people facing cancer to connect with and learn from each other. At the Cancer Support Community, all programs are free of charge.

This week, I will be discussing natural cancer therapies with three experts in the field. You will find out what the most potent and well-proven strategies for preventing and treating cancer are. You do have alternatives to barbaric procedures like surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. Tune in to find out more!
Ty Bollinger is a CPA, health freedom advocate, cancer researcher, former competitive bodybuilder, and author of the best-selling book Cancer – Step Outside the Box. After losing several family members to cancer (including his mother and father), Ty refused to accept the notion that chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery were the most effective treatments available for cancer patients. He began a quest to learn all he possibly could about alternative cancer treatments and the medical industry. What he uncovered was shocking. There is ample evidence to support the allegation that the “war on cancer” is largely a fraud and that multinational pharmaceutical companies are “running the show.” Most importantly, Ty Bollinger is a committed Christian, a devoted husband, and the father of three wonderful children. His website is www.CancerTruth.net.
