In 2001, Janette Murray-Wakelin was diagnosed with a highly aggressive carcinoma breast cancer and given 6 months to get her affairs in order. Unwilling to accept this sentence, Janette made radical changes to her lifestyle. Within 6 months she was given a clean bill of health and established a RAW Vegan Restaurant and Centre of Optimum Health in Canada. Ten years later she wrote Raw Can Cure Cancer. Janette currently lives in Australia and in 2013, Janette and her partner (both 60+ years) ran around the country, 15,500 km, 366 consecutive marathons in 366 days, to inspire and motivate conscious lifestyle choices.
