Kathy Mydlach-Bero Shares Her Battle with Cancer in New Book

Kathy Mydlach-Bero

Released in February, the book E.A.T.: An Unconventional Decade in the Life of a Cancer Patient, written by organic food advocate Kathy Mydlach-Bero, covers her battle with two aggressive cancers and her struggle to recover from debilitating treatments. The book is based on the 18 journals that she wrote during the time, and chronicles her courage to self-advocate, evolve as a person and eventually transform her life from merely surviving to thriving. Respectful of medical practitioners but also recognizing their limitations, Mydlach-Bero rejected the notion that cancer or doctors had any role in deciding her fate, which inevitably left her at a fork in the road.

“My story provides information, motivation and inspiration to anyone looking to prevent chronic disease, improve their diagnosis outcome or prevent recurrence,” says Mydlach-Bero. Although she took advantage of everything her hospital had offered, Mydlach-Bero began to question conventional wisdom and eventually replaced medication with meditation, energy healing and food as medicine in order to continue her battle and heal her body.

E.A.T.: An Unconventional Decade in the Life of a Cancer Patient can be purchased online at, through Amazon or ordered through local bookstores. For bulk orders, contact either Johanna Maaghul at or 415-328-5303, or Waterside Productions at 760-632-9190.
