About Kendall and Annette:

After their cancer diagnoses, both as young adults (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).

Annette first faced breast cancer at age 36 and discovered she carried the BRCA1 genetic mutation. She received an ovarian cancer diagnosis only two years later, followed by a recurrence with metastatic disease. Annette passed away in November 2013. Kendall, a 6-year Hodgkin’s lymphoma survivor diagnosed at age 27, resides in Maine with her husband, and two young boys, ages 4 and 1.
