Inspiration for this book came about when I was convalescing from my battle for life.  Cancer is a formidable opponent. You need information, internal strength and emotional support to be ready when something such as this strikes.  I struggled to gain the knowledge I needed and to sift through the myriad of conflicting opinions from experts.  My intention in sharing my experience and hard work is to help others avoid that heartache when one may be least able to handle it. 

And finally, I have to admit there were some sad and painful days along the way.  However, I chose to turn my suffering into something positive.  It is my greatest wish to help others with their own personal journey and perhaps avoid similar challenges.  I hope reading this book will encourage you to live a healthier and happier life!

As always my inspiration comes from God, family and friends, and readers like you!

"Ann Hamilton Wallace has gathered some of the latest information and research from experts around the world into an informative, easy to read and understand book, "How I Saved My Own Life And You Can Too!"

I highly recommend this book to every woman, young and less young, as an essential primer for continued good health.

An ounce of prevention is far better than a pound of cure, especially when dealing with breast cancer. Ann Hamilton Wallace introduces us to many environmental and nutritional pathways for prevention of this all too common disease process.

Without a doubt, this book is a must read for every health-conscious woman!"
