Jessica Bowen, Breast Cancer Recovery
In April 2011, at age 29, Jessica was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Her doctor told her, in response to her questions about possibly changing her diet, that there was no evidence it made any difference. Her doctor said “If you want a donut, eat a damn donut.” In Nov. 2011 she saw the movie Forks Over Knives, and soon after attended a 10-day McDougall live-in session.

- Lost 92 pounds
- Went from size 22 to size 8
- Runs in 5K events
- Scans and blood work show she is cancer free
