Well, how are you, George? It’s been a while since last we spoke, so I hope you and Rhonda are doing well and enjoying the end of your summer season.

I wanted to share a wonderful story with you. Three weeks ago, I had to travel to Oklahoma to be with my 63-year old mother during breast cancer surgery. I arrived at my mother’s house two days before her surgery, and the first thing I did was buy her a juicer. The second thing I did was go through her kitchen and throw away everything that wasn’t on The Hallelujah Diet. Oh, no, she was not happy with me. I started juicing for her and feeding her fresh green salads, fruits, and whole grains. She was pretty angry! She hated the juice and all the healthy food, but I was like a prison warden and she was my prisoner. I just told her, ‘When I was little you made me eat a lot of yucky stuff because you said it was good for me. I’m just returning the favor.’ Now keep in mind that my mother is about 100 lbs. overweight, sits all day at her job, comes home from work after stopping at a fast food restaurant, lived pretty much on nachos, tacos, and soft drinks, and sat in a recliner and watched TV the rest of her evening. 

I told her, ‘It’s no wonder you have cancer. I’m surprised it took this long for you to get it.’ Following the surgery, the doctor said they got all the cancer. For the last year before her cancer diagnosis, mom suffered with ear infections, contact dermatitis on her scalp, acid reflux, and the worst case of gout on her feet that you can imagine. Her feet were so red and swollen, she could barely walk on them. And she couldn’t even have a bed sheet touch them because it hurt too much. Let me tell you something. Even before her surgery, within two days of starting the juicing and her eating well, her gout was completely gone, and she even stopped her prescription medication for it. 

Her contact dermatitis disappeared within the first week, and she had stopped taking a prescription med for that also her acid reflux disappeared, and she stopped taking her prescription med for that, and within the first week she had lost 6.5 pounds. I knew in my heart that if my mother made a lifestyle change, then she would never get cancer again. 

After that first week, my mother was a true believer!! My brother and I bought her a membership at a special gym for older women, using trainers and range-of-motion machines, especially for women who have had surgeries or health problems. I left mom to return home this past Sunday and she’s called me almost every day to tell me what she’s been eating (The Hallelujah Diet), and that she’s been walking almost every day. She tells me every day how great she feels and that she’s so excited about her new life. Our goal together is for her to lose 100 lbs., by the first anniversary of her mastectomy surgery. And we both believe she can do it. God really came through for my mom in so many ways this past month. I’m so grateful! 

So I want to thank you, and Peter and Stowe Shockey, who also worked with me on your book, for really, saving my mom’s life. If I hadn’t worked on your book I wouldn’t have known what to do with her. Because of The Hallelujah Diet I think she’ll live a very long time now, cancer and medication free.
