Cancer Journey: Life is a Ride
29:17In this episode of The Moss Report, Dr. Ralph Moss and co-host Rachael Moss interview Chris Joseph about his journey with cancer. In October 2016, at age 59, Chris Joseph learned he had third-stage pancreatic cancer. In the midst of the panic and tremendous fear that immediately ensued, he followed the doctor's orders without hesitation and underwent chemotherapy. Months of chemotherapy poisoned his body and nearly destroyed his spirit. With no immediate plan in mind, he fired his oncologist and embarked on an alternative path of recovery, including both natural and Western medicine immunotherapy--one that, against all odds, opened his eyes and healed him, both physically and spiritually. Over the last 33 years, Chris Joseph has started and managed three environmental consulting businesses, launched two fan-funded music record companies, and founded a non-profit charitable foundation. He has also dabbled in philanthropy, songwriting, magazine writing, and he is currently studying for his real estate license. He also adds 'author' to his list of accomplishments with his book, Life is a Ride, a tale of a man that turned a potential death sentence into a life embrace. A native of Los Angeles, Chris has lived in Southern California all of his life. He has two teenage boys, a wonderful girlfriend, and enjoys traveling, hiking, sports, music, and connecting with other people. His book “Life is a Ride” is available on Amazon.
