Movember – grow your mo guys! Let’s spread the word about cancer.
Cancer has taken so many lives and my loved ones have been affected. It is a terrible disease without justice. It is important that we support cancer research, statistics show that one in two people will have cancer already in 2020. That’s only four years from now.
The environment we live in plays a big role for this disease. Also does heredity. I think a big aspect is the food we eat. Most of all – sugar. My mother had cervical cancer a few years ago, and she went through a tough journey during treatments. Now she has made it through another journey. We started to read about nutrition and realized that a big problem is all the sugar that is hiding in all the food we eat. When she began to think that sweets and sugar fattens cancer, it was not that hard to stop eating it. She now has lost 10 kg in two months, which she thought was impossible at the beginning of the journey. But she could do it – with a good diet, plenty of exercise and a healthy mindset about food. I’m so proud of her, she is such a strong mother.
My whole family has changed our eating habits quite drastically. It feels great. I want myself and my family to live a healthy and long life.

I would like to proudly present a collaboration that I have started together with Pura Vida Bracelets. If you buy any of their charity bracelets, $1 will be donated to several different cancer foundations. Beside of that, every bracelet that you buy helps provide full-time jobs for local artisans at Costa Rica, a country that is close to my heart.
The story about Pura Vida is about two students from South California that went on a collage graduation trip to Costa Rica. They crossed paths with two bracelet peddlers which were living in poverty. The students got to experience a part of their life, and asked for some bracelets that they could sell back in the states. It became popular, and today it’s a successful partnership. The significance of the bracelets was more than just an ordinary friendship bracelet. It was symbolizing the simple things in life.
We got to experience the Pura Vida (pure life in spanish) – lifestyle while in Costa Rica. You can read about it here. I’ts a philosophy that encourages the appreciation of life’s simple treasures. It is a synonym of ”hakuna matata.” Life is wonderful; enjoy it.
