I adored Kris Carr before I saw her documentary Crazy Sexy Cancer, and after seeing it, I respect her tenacity and strength tenfold. Kris was diagnosed with a form of cancer so rare that all of the treatment is experimental. In spite of the people who said she had 100 percent fatality, she chose vegetables, herbs, and yoga over traditional chemotherapy and radiation.
Why We Love It: What an inspiration! Kris is one of a kind. She is an exemplary role model for those who want to explore alternative healing processes and take care of their disease instead of the symptoms.
