About the Book
TEOSINTE is for anyone who is or has been impacted by cancer in some way, be it friend, family member, self, or physician…anyone interested in setting an intention for a cure.
When I received a diagnosis of breast cancer in 2010, it was as if the elevator dropped. I knew I was about to enter a system that wouldn’t quite fit my spirit and that I was going to have chemotherapy. I learned much through this journey, but felt quite alone, as my beliefs and holistic approach to life and wellness did not align with the militancy of pink ribbons and racing for the cure. Having always embraced holistic health care, I found myself in a system that was confusing and difficult to navigate, as well as dealing with the emotions brought on by a cancer diagnosis while continuing to teach students with autism.
TEOSINTE was written as a primary source. Those of us who have entered this realm are pioneers of this era. We navigate a medical trail fraught with peril and pats on the head, pleasantries, and uncertainties, while carrying with us the hope and the intention that someday what took months, or for some years to traverse, will one day be nothing more than a blip in our personal and our collective history.

As life would have it, much has changed since the publication of TEOSINTE in 2013. Beginnings and endings have occurred on many levels, both personal and professional.
