Fight Cancer With Chocolate Mousse | NBC Dallas-Fort Worth:
Free cooking classes promote nutrition to prevent and fight cancer
At 27 years old, Katherine Lawrence was an Iraq war veteran, but it was the battle she was facing at home that would prove to be the toughest.
"I started to have really bad pain in my abdomen, and I found out I had severe endometriosis and uterine cysts and ovarian cysts," said Lawrence.
"My doctor wanted to put me into early menopause, and then schedule me for a hysterectomy," said Lawrence.
Desperate to avoid that, she started eating a low-fat, vegan diet and in just five weeks her health problems were virtually gone.
"My doctor was amazed," said Lawrence.
Now, she teaches cooking classes to help prevent and battle cancer in conjunction with a non-profit group called The Food for Life Alliance working with the charity The Cancer Project that was set up by PCRM.
Late 2010 Katherine came over to the UK to teach 14 students and train them to deliver Cancer and Diabetes fighting Cookery workshops.
