I am a cancer patient in remission since 2017. I made major changes in my life after a second cancer diagnosis in 2016. Diet, exercise, nutrition, mindfulness, supplements, water, and more. I am interested in becoming a cancer coach and retirement from education. Are there any programs you would
recommend? I live in Michigan.
