“My Doctor Told Me I Was Fine”

I was at a recent networking event signing copies of my new book, “Own Your Journey…..to Optimal Hormone Balance,” and a gal came up to me and said, “Oh, I don’t need hormones.” I asked her how she knew this.

They cause cancer.” I had to laugh! It struck me as funny that she would think I was sitting there promoting cancer; as if I was handing it out. “Step right up and get your cancer.”
