HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - She showed up on the Sunrise set with a big smile and lots of energy. A good sign for someone battling cancer.
In May of 2015, Christa Wittmier was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer and given less than a year to live. Nearly 16 months later, she's feeling good and still fighting. Wittmier is a well-known DJ, a columnist for the Star Advertiser and a Senior Marketing director for liquor distributor Young's Market. She is also sharing her journey with others so they can learn from her experience.
While she has received chemotherapy and radiation, Wittmier attributes some of her healing to holistic methods. She has followed a strict organic diet. She has also been trying a multitude of homeopathic remedies. Currently, she is on a weekly high dose of vitamin C that is administered intravenously. She says that it kills cancer cells in her body like hydrogen peroxide kills germs in wounds. She believes that it also helped with the side effects that cancer patients often suffer through.
All the treatments are also expensive. If you want to help Wittmier, you can attend her yoga fundraiser at the The Republik on September 13th, 2016. Doors open at 6pm, the yoga starts at 7:15pm. Join in the class for $20 or more. All the proceeds will help with her medical expenses. You can also purchase one of her yoga covers at alohatowels.com to help with her fight.
