Our Board

The story of our original beneficiary, Sharon, inspired the formation of HealThy Life. Sharon was diagnosed with Stage IV incurable cancer in July 2016 at the age of 36. She was prescribed high-dose chemotherapy as her only treatment option, which was, as admitted by her oncologists, merely a time-buyer. It was then that she deciding to wage her personal battle against cancer holistically in search of a permanent cure. The expense of treatment was significant compared to conventional options.

This group of neighbors and friends rallied around her cause and the result was our first fundraising event, The HealThy Life Track Meet and Health Expo. Watching Sharon undergo her non-toxic, side-effect-free treatments with success inspired the group to form HealThy Life with the mission of assisting others on the same journey and educating the general public about the benefits of more integrative methods of fighting cancer.
