RandyW Posted April 3, 2010 Share Posted April 3, 2010 HUTCHINSON ISLAND, FL -- You won't find any bitterness inside her kitchen. In fact Leisa Dargis won't let the past haunt her despite it being dreadful. "It was unreal, it was like this can't be happening to me, this only happens to other people," says Dargis. The 46 year old mother of three was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer last August. It spread to her spine and brain. Her death sentence was set. Her days were numbered and her life according to a hospital chart was almost over. "I never believed them, I never accepted the fact that I was dying," says Dargis. For Leisa the tranquility of the Treasure Coast is her life and now she was faced with the biggest life-changing decision. Would she go with chemo or radiation? Instead she took a totally different approach. "I changed my diet completely; I went all organics, no sugars, no starches, no preservatives." She went with a holistic treatment. All organic foods, exercise, Pilates, and meditation. Fear of paralysis forced her to have one surgery under cyber knife and she takes only one drug. "I was cancer free as of February 19th," says Dargis. If there's truth to where there's a will there's a way, Leisa Dargis just proved it. A mom who saw the fragile nature of her own life and what it took in her own hands to win it back. This is what I want other people to know, there is hope out there encourage other people that they have a choice to live," says Dargis. Dargis outlines her complete recovery and treatment on her new website: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
