Hi there, and welcome to Living Organic For Life! I hope you will enjoy sharing this journey with me as I work my way through living healthy and clean.
2011 was a life changing year. I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma at the end of January, and started chemotherapy treatments in February. Our family was floored a second time when my daughter, Saoirse, at just 11 months old, was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in May. We battled together for 4 months, and in July I finished my treatments. September gave me the all clear, and my tests showed that I was in full remission. Saoirse Was declared NED by her primary team, but relapsed less than two weeks later while we were trying to change hospitals for her continued treatment. She battled hard, but she lost her fight on December 13.
Our grief of loosing our daughter has been overwhelming, but we are determined to work to make ourselves and our future children as healthy as possible through clean, organic living. Through reading and research, we have discovered a lot of information about health and wellness, and about how exposures to chemicals can alter our bodies leading to many ailments, including cancer and other chronic conditions. Join me as I share our research and ideas as well as recipes, gardening tips, cleaning solutions and much more.
