A Transformative Journey Toward Abounding Health & Joyful Living

Grace Hillary Jean

Owner/Founder

My dance with cancer started in 2009 when I was a young 33 years of age. At that time my dance partner was fear, he was the leader and I followed nervously trying to keep in step. Our dance routine looked much like one would expect – surgery, reconstruction, PET scans, and chemotherapy. This routine left me skinny, lifeless, and bald. Characteristics you would not want to see in dancers as they glide effortlessly across the dance floor. Although I fumbled through the dance, crying at times as I tried to keep up with my leader, I am happy to say I did complete the dance and was pronounced “cancer free” when the music ended.

Sadly, after the dance was over, it took my body, which was strong and beautiful before the start of the dance, much like that of most professional dancers, many years to recover; to fully reclaim its strength and beauty.

What did I learn from that dance? I learned that I could not be in a partnership again with fear. I would not willingly follow as my emotions lead the way. I could not let cancer bring me to my knees because of the sheer terror I felt having heard those words “you have cancer.” I owned my decision by telling my husband that if my cancer ever returned, I would never ever go through chemotherapy again; I would never go back to the studio of western medicine to find my cancer dance partner. Ever!

Embrace Life & Love Your Body Well

“Hillary has helped me immensely by reminding me of what is important in life and how to achieve my goals by surrounding myself with positivity and healthy choices. I thought I was on the right path by myself until Hillary and I started talking, then I realized, having someone help me down this road and on this journey to living my best life was exactly what I needed. Hillary, was exactly who I needed. My life has changed because of her help and I would recommend anyone to work with her if they are ready to change their own lives for the better.”

“About 3 years ago, I was struggling with feeling good about myself and feeling down in the dumps. I knew I needed to do something to make a change, I just didn’t know what to do. Hillary encouraged me to try an entirely plant-based diet for 21 days. After her cancer diagnosis, I watched Hillary change her life and her eating habits..I always thought I could “never do that”. She convinced me to give it a try…after all it was only 21 days. I was a bit nervous and afraid and not sure if I was going to like it – and thought I just have to get through the 21 days and then I will go back to the way I was living before. Well let me tell you – it changed my life! I finally could feel what Hillary talked about and I became a believer! She was and continues to be my support system and is always there for me….answering my questions and offering guidance along the way. She opened my eyes to an entirely new world…focused on food as medicine, meditation, and living a healthier lifestyle. She helped to change my life and I am eternally grateful!”
