In 2008, Jimmy was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer and underwent emergency surgery to address the tumor that was completely blocking his colon. After that life-saving surgery, he made the personal decision not to take the recommended chemo or radiation, but instead changed to a plant-based diet and adopted the other 9 key radical remission healing factors. Today, 15 years later, he is healthy and cancer-free.
Here is his story in his own words:
In 2008, I had a tumor that grew inside my body and totally blocked the passage of my colon. My body quickly became toxic and backed up; I was in misery. I was trying to figure out what was causing my condition and ended up in the emergency room at Los Angeles County Hospital.
The following morning after going to the emergency room, I had diverse colostomy surgery and I was in the hospital for a little over a week and was then released to go home. The doctor from USC called me 10 days later and told me that he was “sorry” and that I had cancer.
When I got home from the hospital, I took my clothes off and looked into a wall mirror, and all my muscle mass was gone. My kneecaps were the biggest part of my legs and I had a bag attached to my stomach, it felt like my life was over. I did tons of research and ended up eating only raw organic vegetables for 5 straight years.
I’m grateful for my doctors. I had a total of 3 surgeries with the 3rd and final being a takedown of my colostomy. My doctors told me that I had 5 years to live and this summer it will be 15 years. I’m 65 years young and I work out with weights and play Ping-Pong and walk 6 miles 3 days a week at the beach.
To win my battle with cancer, I chose food for medicine to create an alkaline environment and I eliminated all chemicals and fragrances that I put in or on my body. I also attempted to get sodium bicarbonate to my tumor because my research told me that cancer can’t live in an alkaline environment. I also would rub Frankincense essential oil on my feet at bedtime.
I take a lot of supplements. I tell people all the time broccoli seeds turn to sprouts, healed my body, now cancer is out. I wouldn’t underestimate the power of sulforaphane in broccoli sprouts for cancer.

I’m glad people are surviving cancer in any way they can. It’s my philosophy that it’s your body’s job to heal your cancer and your job to heal your body.
EDITOR’S NOTE: As of June 2023, Jimmy is still cancer-free.
