Encore: Betsy Heilman's remarkable recovery from ovarian cancer
January 21, 2019
Hosted by Howard Straus
Artist Betsy Heilman was diagnosed with end-stage ovarian cancer by the Mayo Clinic, and sent to hospice after unsuccessful chemotherapy treatment. She did not accept that verdict, instead opting for the Gerson Therapy. This was a hard task, since she lived in remote Alaska, near Denali, over 100 miles north of Anchorage. But Betsy is a tough lady, and 11 years later, she is full of life and energy, living in Hawaii, and active in both her artistic life and in civic causes, centering on sustainable living and environmental causes. She is working on her own Gerson-oriented cookbook, and travels far and wide to share her message with laymen and medical personnel alike. Hear her remarkable story on The Power of Natural Healing.
