Tyler Hook was diagnosed with Stage 4 Medulloblastoma (brain cancer) at 3 years old. After six weeks of radiation and five months of chemotherapy treatments at St. Jude failed to cure him, he was given 3 weeks to live and sent home on hospice to die. He is now 6-years-old and cancer free after no further conventional treatment.
Please enjoy this touching interview with Tyler’s mom Sunshine, who saw hospice as an “open door” to use nutrition and natural therapies to help her son heal.
