He was given four months to live, but Jimmy Blanco refused to die.
It didn’t matter that doctors diagnosed him with an ultra-aggressive and fast-growing form of brain cancer known as glioblastoma multiforme. All that mattered was that he was a young father who wanted to be there for his children. So he set out to fight the tumor on his terms.
It was a battle fought with comprehensive nutrition research, dramatic changes to his diet and lifestyle, and unwavering faith. The fight lasted not for the four months that doctors had predicted, but for nearly 10 years.
He began writing about what he learned and chronicled his successes to share with others so that they too could find hope in their darkest hour. Years after his passing, his daughter, Jamie Blanco, finished the book her father started. She delved deeper into the nutrition research which has become more abundant than what was available to her father.
