Dear Dr. Joey,
I would like to thank you again for the support your staff gave me after being one of the Skinnychew winners from the contest you held in March. I started your program and taped every show you did on Cityline. Whenever I needed some reminders, I just re-played the shows.
April and May went well and I was losing weight and feeling great. Here is the hard part to write. As a result of the weight loss around my chest (almost 3 inches), I felt a lump in my chest and spent June being tested and learned I had breast cancer. I had a mastectomy on July 16th and am in recovery. I do not know where the next few months will lead me, but am thankful for winning the contest as the weight loss may have saved my life. I went into the surgery feeling the best I have ever felt. I have learned what it means to eat healthy, and I am sure it will help in my recovery from cancer. I did reach my goal weight of 138 in June, and as of today - I am at 132 pounds. I would like to thank you again for all the support and guidance I received.
All the best,
Margaret HendershotThank you Margaret...your story inspires us all. God bless.
