This past week, Heaven gained an angel as yet another family said an untimely good-bye after a two-year battle with BRCA 2 positive, triple negative breast cancer, metastasized to the lungs. At just 40 years old, she leaves behind a dedicated husband and four kids who loved her through it.  

Hearing those kinds of devastating outcomes is what motivated Christine Horner, MD to change career paths. In the early 1990s, she became alarmed over the increasing number of very young women she saw in her practice diagnosed with breast cancer. 

When her own mother was diagnosed and then died from breast cancer, Dr. Horner began an intensive search of the medical literature to find what -- if anything -- could help prevent breast cancer.  What she found was a tremendous amount of little-known research proving that woman can significantly reduce their risk of breast cancer and of most other chronic diseases.

In June 2002, Dr. Horner left her plastic surgery practice so that she could dedicate herself full time to writing and teaching about her passion: prevention-oriented medicine and how to become and stay healthy naturally. 

Join us this Monday, May 27th, at 7PM EDT for an in-depth look at the current trend in cancer treatment, along with a candid discussion about Angelina Jolie's hailed decision and what it means for other women who carry the BRCA gene or have a family history of cancer. Dr. Horner brings other, often unrecognized, important factors to the table. We’ll plug her extensive knowledge and peruse the pages of her award winning book, Waking The Warrior Goddess.
