Join cancer survivor and healthy food expert Meg Wolff at Pen Bay’s Picker Family Resource Center as she shares the story of her journey back to health.

Learning to trust her instincts, Wolff began a journey to heal her body using conventional and naturopathic medicine. She switched to a plant-based way of eating to increase her chances of cancer-free, long-term survival from advanced breast cancer. The all-important connection between the food choices one makes and one’s health and well-being has been endorsed by some of the nation’s most influential researchers, including T. Colin Campbell, PhD, the leading expert on the link between diet and health, who wrote the foreword for Wolff’s latest book, “A Life in Balance.”

This talk is free and will take place Thursday, Aug. 25 at 6 p.m. at the Picker Family Resource Center, located in the Women’s Health building, 3 Glen Cove Drive, Suite 2, on the Pen Bay Medical Center campus in Rockport.

Wolff wants to raise awareness that there are costs for putting overly processed and chemically-treated food into one’s body. She firmly believes that changing her diet dramatically changed – and ultimately saved – her life. Wolff, now 49, lives in Cape Elizabeth with her husband Tom and two children. Copies of Wolff’s book will be available for purchase and signing.

Space is limited for this event. Please call by Monday, Aug. 22, to register (and for directions, if needed) at 596-8950.
