A recent participant said, "A heartfelt thank you for providing me the tools to approach this unfortunate disease. In a way it has strengthened me already - I feel certain the "sacrifices" I have to make of eating consciously...and moving my body on purpose, are hardly a giving something up! Again, I thank you for being the gentle intelligent person you are."
