PRLog - March 2, 2014 - WHISTLER, British Columbia -- Kris Carr is a cancer survivor, author and health expert and is an incredible inspiration to many people, whether they have a connection to cancer or not. When she found out she had an incurable cancer she decided to document her story and made her film, Crazy Sexy Cancer. The film aired on TLC and OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. Carr has since become a wellness and nutrition expert and has sparked a ‘wellness revolution’. She is the author of several books, including Crazy Sexy Cancer, Crazy Sexy Diet and Crazy Sexy Kitchen. She’s an upbeat, sassy, caring wellness guru and Earthsave Whistler wanted to introduce the Whistler community to her via her documentary, Crazy Sexy Cancer.
Earthsave Whistler is excited to welcome Nicolette Richer, owner of The Green Moustache, as speaker after the movie. Nicolette is a certified Gerson Trainer and Health Consultant and teaches people with cancer and chronic disease how to heal themselves. Nicolette is a great speaker and is always very inspiring.
In 2003, when I was a 31-year-old actress/photographer, I was diagnosed with a rare and incurable cancer. Weeks later I began filming my story. Taking a seemingly tragic situation and turning it into a creative expression, I share my cancer documentary of survival with courage, strength and lots of humor.
With experimental treatment as my only option, I became determined to find answers where there were none. Traveling throughout the country interviewing experts in alternative medicine, I dove head first into a fascinating and often hilarious holistic world. Along the way, I met other vivacious young women determined to become survivors and included them in my cancer documentary. Their stories are as poignant and exciting as the women who tell them. As my journey progressed, I realized that healing is about truly living rather than fighting.
Crazy Sexy Cancer is more than a thought provoking documentary, it’s an attitude! It’s about rising to the challenge of life and turning lemons into champagne.
