About Us

Diane Leone

The Doctor’s were not happy with his decision and we would soon find out just what the costs are when you treat cancer naturally/holistically. No insurance covers the expenses and having gone through five Doctors, we are beginning to think we are just truly out here on our own.

It’s okay. We learn more and more every day. Tom does everything he’s supposed to do and tests are showing no cancer! We are both believers in food as medicine. We both eat a 100% organic diet of whole foods, no sugar, plant-based, and no processed foods. It changes your social life. Going out to eat – what do you eat? It’s worth it, it’s his life. He’s not been sick or felt bad and people are puzzled when they see him because he doesn’t look sick.

We want to share with the world our experience. I’ve been keeping a journal since the beginning and I’ll begin writing posts from those journals to catch up to where we are today. It’s created a passion, a calling in me, to share this experience and let people know what we’ve been through, what we’ve accomplished, and what we’ve learned. I hope you’ll follow too and share with others that might be interested. There are options for your healthcare and you, as the patient, get to participate in the decisions. We only have one life, don’t hand it over without questions.

2018 was a tough year. Oh, it started out good. In February we had a gift of a trip to Paris and while there, we renewed our wedding vows. After returning home, we knew something was wrong. 

In July, Tom got the diagnosis, Bladder Cancer. The world stopped turning. Scared, frantic, and trying to make good decisions we started on the journey of his treatment.

Help Tom With His Treatment Costs

Building A Better Boat

Many people think if you are treating your cancer naturally, it’s not expensive. It’s the exact opposite. Insurance won’t pay for it and it’s expensive. Our story includes Tom’s diagnosis in July of 2018, that week I lost my major client, and with 2 weeks Tom lost his dad. It was quite a month.

With the stress of the world standing still with a cancer diagnosis and trying to make the right decisions, more money going out and less coming in, we needed (and still need) help.

Our dear friend Judy Hicks set up a GoFundMe page and family and friends have helped us in so many ways. We can never repay them or really share how much we appreciate them.

If you are in the holistic nutrition world or are interested in or, even if you know someone who is, I hope you’ll follow Tom’s progress and our story because this changed our lives forever.

Tom’s treatment is ongoing and very expensive. If you can help us, we thank you. Here is a link to the GoFundMe page: https://bit.ly/2GoFundMeHelpTomBeatCancer
