  • In their third year, Mark Robinson, D.C., and Leesa Robinson N.H.P., are spreading the word of a different form of breast cancer detection at Wholistic Pathways Family Center, near Kellogg Lake on Hwy 96. Mark, Leesa and their staff at the center are gearing up for a two-day screening event with the help of Dr. Linda Bamber.
    Bamber travels for Breast Research Awareness and Support (BRAS) with equipment to perform thermograms, which is digital infrared thermal imaging (DITI). Leesa said the amazing discoveries in the field have led people to catch the warning signs of cancer as early as eight to 10 years, but still the stigma of breast cancer remains as a permanent curse.
    “It bothers me to hear things like 'you're never cured,' because that plants a seed – those are powerful words,” Leesa said. “People have been healed, and we see that. I've heard an ovarian cancer survivor testify she had conquered cancer. She said 'it's gone, it's not in remission, it's gone.' We often believe what we see the most of, and we do see many patients lose the fight against cancer, so we draw the conclusion that it's always the case. Everyday, we all battle cancer cells in our body. And that's a message of hope … that's what it should be – that's what it's all about.”
    The first day of screening is set for Monday, Feb. 27, and a Health and Healing with Far Infrared Rays seminar will be presented by Bamber from 6:30-8 p.m. The seminar will be part demonstrative, as Bamber shares information on a tool used in combating all kinds of cancer called a bio-mat and other ways of early detection. Leesa said she hopes the community will take this opportunity to ask questions as well.
    “This is wonderful for our community because the next closest place to receive this kind of service would be Springfield or Kansas City,” Leesa said. “We always have a good turnout. Linda is completely booked for two days, depending on the person, each scan takes 15-30 minutes. It's very comfortable, like you're getting your picture taken. I can say from experience, I felt well cared for.”
    Think beyond pink
    Leesa said to “think beyond pink,” is taking basic, healthy living standards – such as eating right, drinking water, exercising – to the next level.
    “In depth information, specific information on diets and chemicals in the environment, detox methods and learning immune system boosters are all ways to think beyond pink,” Leesa said. “It's a new way to tackle this (battle against cancer).”
