In this issue, we take a look at living with cancer. It seems that everyone knows at least one person affected by this prevalent disease. My moment of realization came upon walking into a local oncologist’s office only to find it more crowded than Clark’s Nutrition. It truly made my heart sink.
In researching our feature story, I had the pleasure of meeting some amazing doctors, practitioners, and patients. They are Desert people from all walks of life, sharing a strong bond, similar experiences and the same concerns. I am grateful that each shared their knowledge and stories in an attempt to help others.
Fortunately in many cases cancer is making its way from ‘terminal illness’ to ‘chronic disease management’ and integrative medicine is playing an important role in that progression.
It is my hope that this special issue brings inspiration, information and resources to you or someone you know. Thank you for joining us.
