Diana Warren was diagnosed with breast cancer that had already begun to spread. She was urged to do chemotherapy immediately. Her daughter drove her to her first appointment. However, after walking into the clinic,she didn't stay. Instead, she returned to her car and vowed to never set foot in that place again.
Although she did go back a few times, she never felt comfortable enough to allow herself to be treated. Each time, she made a quick exit.
Instead, she went online and read everything she could about her condition. She became determined to find another solution that didn't involve radiation, or the standard chemotherapy protocol.
Diana and her daughter, Jamie Beardsley, have recounted her frightful tale, which has a happy ending, in their book, Say No to Radiation and Conventional Chemotherapy: Winning my Battle Against Stage II Breast Cancer.
