The Dr Oz show I was in will air this thursday at 4pm on channel 5 est. I am on in the beginning of the show to introduce the segment. There are 4 of us shown.
I felt that the segment was very well done.
Tune in if you get the chance.
Happy New Year!

My Mom watched and we both realized she had been eating many of the foods they recommended to reduce the risks. Yet, even an orange a day for a lifetime didn't help her.

Having gone through all we have endured, I think all survivors and caregivers should be movie stars. All I got was this stupid T-shirt from Oncology: "Dr. Fisher is My Hero" LOL.......

Mel, you were great on the intro! I just saw clips of it from the website. Like BruceF, my mom had also been eating the foods they say to reduce risks. I also noticed that in one part they said to avoid fermented foods, and then there was another clip about colon cancer and how fermented cabbage reduced risks of colon cancer...so somethings things can be conflicting. Either way, it's great to see more stomach cancer awareness.

Mel.... the show was very interesting! It was great to see you on the there...you looked so calm and relaxed!!! Like muigi84 I was confused about the fermented foods. One part of the show they said to avoid them then in another part they encouraged them to reduce the risk of colon cancer. All in all it was a fantastic and very informative show. Dr Oz is awesome!!!
Love and hugs

We were confused as well... but I am thinking maybe the difference is between naturally fermented and forced formented? Naturally occuring vs those that use chemical additives?
Our local paper is doing a story on me that will be published soon. I will post that as soon as I can.
Thanx all and here is to a Happy and Healthy New Year!
