As a caregiver to Leanne for over 25 years, I've seen the worst that cancer treatments can do. I've supported and encouraged our healthy eating habits and ended up getting my Nutritional Consultant Certification. I saw my mom wither away and finally succumb to cancer when I was in my late 20's. My dad passed away from heart failure when I was 18. I do not want to follow in their footsteps. When I was younger, I was in a modern dance troop, I studied martial arts and was an avid windsurfer. As I grew older, although my diet was good, I found myself slowing down and began slipping into a sedentary lifestyle and gaining weight. Then, 4 yrs ago, we were introduced to hula hooping by friends and I became addicted. I feel better, I eat better and I lost weight.
