I would like to share with you a note I received from a client and Cityline viewer about her weight loss experience. Her sentiments and story are testament to the fact that health is indeed the first wealth. Thank you Margaret for sharing. 

Dear Dr. Joey,

I would like to thank you again for the support your staff gave me after being one of the Skinnychew winners from the contest you held in March. I started your program and taped every show you did on Cityline. Whenever I needed some reminders, I just re-played the shows. 

April and May went well and I was losing weight and feeling great. Here is the hard part to write. As a result of the weight loss around my chest (almost 3 inches), I felt a lump in my chest and spent June being tested and learned I had breast cancer. I had a mastectomy on July 16th and am in recovery. I do not know where the next few months will lead me, but am thankful for winning the contest as the weight loss may have saved my life. I went into the surgery feeling the best I have ever felt. I have learned what it means to eat healthy, and I am sure it will help in my recovery from cancer. I did reach my goal weight of 138 in June, and as of today - I am at 132 pounds. I would like to thank you again for all the support and guidance I received. 

All the best,

Margaret Hendershot
