Cindy Felan’s Journey to Wellness: Scholarship Recipient Finds Hope in Radical Remission

Living with cancer is not for the faint of heart.  Cindy Felan was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer in 2014, and it had metastasized to other parts of her body.  After six years, she had exhausted all conventional treatment options.

“A friend sent me a link to the OHI website which outlined the 3-week program,” said Cindy.  “I instantly knew I needed this drastic diet change in order to move to healing, but how would I pay for a 3-week stay?  I feel very blessed to have received a scholarship, and I thank OHI for making this amazing program available to people like me.”

Why was Cindy so determined to come to OHI?  Six years of cancer treatments had left her physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted.  “I honestly did not believe I would be on this earth much longer,” said Cindy.  “But now that I’ve gone through OHI’s program, I feel like I finally have a roadmap to follow.  I know how to navigate food.  I know how to work around nagging doubt.  I know how to be inspired by people who have gone through the same healing opportunity as me, and have come out the other side.  By the middle of my stay, I had a spring in my step, and more energy than I had had in years.  By the end of my stay I even learned to love this cancer inside me.  To see these cells as a sick child that needs my help to get better was transformative.  Quite simply, my big takeaway from the OHI program has been HOPE.”

For Cindy, hope and courage came to her in the most unexpected way.  “During my OHI stay, I was given a book by a lovely lady who intuitively knew that I need to hear a specific message.  The book was Radical Remission, and reading it has given me the courage to face my healing opportunity with an open heart.”

Now that she is home, Cindy is determined to stay on track with the OHI program.  “The OHI program is very simple, but it is not easy.  You have to take command of your thoughts, emotions, and deeds.  If I could give anyone advice, it would be to set fear aside, and be what you are supposed to be.  Each of us has an internal compass to guide us through life.  All you have to do is pay attention.”
