How exciting!!! I am invited to give a conference to breast cancer survivors this weekend in Morristown, NJ. I will presenting my book Super Body, Super Brain and will sign books after.  This is my fourth conference to Breast Cancer survivors and everytime I speak to them i feel so inspired and touched. I have a personal story with Breast Cancer .My Godfather Dr Sanchez he is one of the top Pathologists in the country treating women with breast cancer. We have had tons of conversations about the condition and the implications for the patient’s well being. What if we could develop a highly individualized fitness program for Breast cancer patients?

So I have been working really hard in developing an individualized Super Body, Super Brain fitness program for Breast Cancer Patients. I am almost done and I will present it to Englewood Hospital for a really soon take off. 7 Months ago my program got awarded a prestigious grant for Parkinson Disease and now i want to reach patients with Breast Cancer. That is why my conference tomorrow is so exciting and with a lot of announcements.


Breast cancer is one of the most feared common cancer among American women. The chance of developing breast cancer at some time in a woman’s life is beyond the staggering number of 10%.
