Great picture of your market bags! You must be so proud! Congratulations!

About your Grandmother - My Dad was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer when he was 84. His prognosis was 6 months, but we decided to fight it.

A friend gave me two books - The Macro-Biotic Cookbook by Aveline Kushi and The Cancer Prevention Diet by her husband, Michio Kushi. (They have these used on

The Cancer Prevention Diet adjusts the basic Macro-biotic diet according to the type of cancer the person has. Some cancers thrive in an acid environment and some in an alkaline one. The adjustment to the diet brings the body back into balance so it can fight off disease.

I put my Dad on the adjusted macro-biotic diet and he did very well. He lived 6 1/2 years more, symptom-free, and was nearly 91 when he died.

I've referred others to these books over the years and have heard back some wonderful results. I hope it might help you and your family now.

Best of luck,
