& Sharon Van Straaten
Sharon Van Straaten is a survivor of stage 2 Throat and stage 4 Lymph Cancer after being diagnosed in 2009. Following intensive chemo and radiation therapy treatment, Sharon, against all medical expectations... is still in remission...
By hosting motivational talks on cancer survival in 2011, Sharon soon realized that she needed to do more than just “talk” about survival... with more information about the right NUTRITION, TREATMENT and ATTITUDE... SURVIVAL is a reality!
