http://youtu.be/luyVByCt5fQ http://www.sanoviv.com From the Sanoviv Blog: Hi, I'm Stephanie Wilder Deasy, USANA associate for 5 years, mother of two boys, personal trainer and group fitness director for 20 years, and I was diagnosed with a rare form of stage 4 lung cancer in July 2010. When I received the devastating diagnosis, the USA doctors told me neither surgery nor radiation were options for this kind of lung cancer and that I needed to start an 18 week chemo treatment right away. However, they warned us that I may not survive the chemo. Not surviving was not an option. This was on a Thursday and by Sunday I was on the airplane from Virginia, with portable oxygen and my dear friend, Marcy Jones, to Sanoviv Medical Institute for the 4 week Holistic Oncology program. While at Sanoviv, I received so much love and support and the best medical treatment in the world. At what other facility are you treated by a team of specialists, including your own nutritionist, that are all working toward the same goal...YOU? And in this case, ME!...

My name is stephanie Deasy. I am from Lynchburg Virginia. I'm 42 years old and... 41 actually, I'll be 42 years old. I'm a mother of two. And um... I was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer uh... exactly one year ago. It's um... It was July 2010. And um... I always been in fitness; for about the last 20 years. I've been running group fitness programs and teaching people about nutrition and group fitness. I've been a personal trainer. I'm a presenter for one of the national organizations. So.. always been into health. I um... didn't feel well for just a couple of weeks. I had been a little short of breath. I had a cough but, just thought it was allergy related and... Anyway, went to the doctor and they said I had pneumonia; so... a walking pneumonia. So I figured that's all I had and this was the weekend of July 4th. I think it was about july 9th by the time they... I uh... They put me through a couple of tests and figured out it was pneumonia; put me on an antibiotic and ten days later it wasn't gone. Put me through more blood tests and anyway... kept putting me through all these tests and I was wondering why for pneumonia? But it wasn't going away and they obviously thought it was something more. Went back to my regular doctor after ten days. uh... he continued doing tests and sent me on to a lung specialist at this point, because we tried... I said just try a different antibiotic. I'm sure it's, you know... pneumonia. We'll take care of it; we'll get rid of it. He sent me to a lung um... a specialists. And they put me through a series of tests. And... last test he brought me into his office and told me I had stage 4 lung cancer. What do you do with that? I jumped out of my body basically and uh... He was continuing to talk and... tell me it wasn't good. um... I had a very rare kind of lung cancer. I... It's a kind that attacks women who don't smoke, in their 40's; I had just turned 40. I've never smoked. And all he could stay is in his 30 years of practicing he'd only seen maybe 3 or 4 cases. And he was very sorry. OK. That's all you can give me...
