She teaches how gratitude and gaining a new perspective on what life really is all about became more evident to her in spite of her cancer diagnosis she learned how changing her attitude set her on a much more purposeful course in lfe. She has deep empathy and compassion for all who are facing a cancer diagnosis. She relates to the monumental decisions that revolve around choosing treatment and how difficult it is deciding how to save your own life.

Shannon Knight is a two-time breast cancer survivor who refused chemotherapy both times. When she was stage 3 in 2006, she had a bilateral mastectomy, and in 2010 when Shannon faced a stage 4 recurrence, she chose advance alternative cancer treatment in Mexico. First, she underwent 22 sessions of unsuccessful radiation on her sternum.
Shannon trusted her intuition and chose CMN Hospital’s Alternative Cancer Treatment February 2011 after her UCLA doctor gave her only 3-12 months to live. It was because of her choice to refuse chemo and choose a healthier alternative that she is now cancer free. Shannon is alive and well today. Today she is a cancer advocate, a speaker, author and life coach with an emphasis on “The Emotional Healing Connection to Healing Cancer”. She encourages people who contact her about her success to learn how to trust their intuition just as she did.
