Disbro turns to diet in battling cancer
Placeholder Image

Hannah Disbro is not letting a diagnosis of cancer stop her from fighting for her life. Hannah was diagnosed with spindle and round cell sarcoma June 24.
Hannah, 18, underwent chemotherapy treatments at Vanderbilt, but was told she would no longer be a candidate for chemotherapy as a curative treatment.
Hannah has decided to tackle the cancer with a diet of fruits and vegetables.
“Cancer cannot live in alkaline. I am trying to put my body in an alkaline state by taking the acids out,” said Hannah.
She eats only raw fruits and vegetables, including five pounds of carrots and three pounds of apples a day. She eats no meat, no dairy, no pepper, no salt. She does eat one egg a day.
“I am juicing and eating raw fruits and vegetables. I use lots of spinach in my juices. I also take 40 vitamin supplements a day,” said Hannah.
According to the I Love Fruit website:
“Our body is designed to be alkaline – our blood has a pH of 7.365, which is slightly alkaline and it will do whatever it can to regulate our pH levels. The Standard American Diet, consumed by a large portion of the population, is the main culprit causing our body to be in a constant state of acidity.
Eight alkaline foods recommended by the website to be consumed every day include: kale, lemons, broccoli, celery, avocado, red pepper, cucumber and spinach.
Hundreds of people showed up Saturday at Village Car Wash to show their support for Hannah in a fundraiser dubbed Healing for Hannah.
People want to meet Hannah and are telling her to not give up,” said her mom. “We have been blessed. We just ask everybody to continue praying for her and keep believing.”
