About

Michele Orrson lives in Northeast Pennsylvania with her husband and son.  By day, Michele works as a Director of User Acceptance Testing and Information Security at a major financial organization.  By night, she’s an amateur blogger, chronicling her journey with breast cancer as well as her evolution to a whole-food, plants-based diet.  In addition to providing updates on her battle with breast cancer, Michele features many books, recipes, and other resources for a healthier lifestyle.

Her experience with cancer includes acting as caretaker for her first husband during his 3-year battle with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.  Additionally, she was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma in 2008 which resulted in a partial nephrectomy.   Because the kidney cancer was caught very early, was fully encapsulated, and was in an ideal location, less than 10% of her kidney was removed.  Her diagnosis of breast cancer (Stage IIIa Invasive Lobular Carcinoma, ER+, PR+) was in August 2012.

This blog covers her journey from diagnosis to the present and includes her double mastectomy, chemotherapy, and radiation.  It further covers her journey to a plants-based diet, as well as other healthy lifestyle changes such as juicing, yoga, and naturopathy.  As a two-time cancer survivor, Michele wants to try everything to ensure there isn’t a third time.  It’s time for ACTION!
