Pamela Carrillo was diagnosed with breast cancer — “we were in shock,” she admits — but that was not the end of the story. In fact, it was the beginning of a journey that prompted her husband, Robert, to challenge everything they had been told about orthodox medicine.

He began to research conventional methods as well as natural treatments, including supplements for the cancer protocol. Ultimately, the Carrillos decided to choose a natural, integrative course of treatment, and today they are an example of how people should engage — and win — their battle against cancer.

Robert became more than a husband to Pamela; he was her caregiver, and their relationship deepened throughout the course of her cancer treatment. The Carrillos refused to accept cancer as a death sentence. Their story is one of research, understanding, and love.
