About Kendall and Annette: Kendall and Annette are two young cancer survivors who not only survived but learned to thrive with cancer – from diagnosis through intense treatment and beyond. They know what it’s like to be stopped in your tracks by what seems to be a death sentence. And they know what it’s like to wake up from the scared-shitless, post-diagnosis stupor and wonder: “What the heck do I do now?!” However, they didn’t want to just slog their way through cancer; Kendall and Annette also wanted to feel as good as possible while doing it.
After their cancer diagnoses (and before they had even met!), Annette and Kendall decided to become their own health advocates and do all they could, alongside their doctors to heal from cancer. They adopted a “food as medicine” philosophy and began making small changes in their diets and busy lives to help in healing from the disease. Their new outlook on food and life motivated them to attend the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (where they met) to attain certification in health coaching and board certification through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP).
Kendall, a Hodgkin’s Lymphoma survivor diagnosed at age 27, resides in Maine with her husband and baby boy. Annette survives breast and ovarian cancer, with her first diagnosis at 36, and lives in the Philadelphia area with her husband and 13-year-old daughter.
