My goal is to create a wellness business that provides individuals with the tools and support they need and desire during these difficult times. I offer individually tailored strategies along with recipes and programs that men and women with cancer could eagerly connect to, including incorporating elements of compassion and caring.
The whole body approach is designed to help strengthen the mind, body and spirit of individuals who are living with cancer, a chronic illness or other day to day challenges.
With goals that are attainable and a mindset that is flexible and open, wellness follows.
I am dedicated to helping individuals who are battling cancer by serving those in need of support and help reduce their suffering so that they can live their lives with hope, dignity and empowerment.

About Michelle Thibodeau
Thank you for stopping by!
I’ve dedicated my life to helping men and women who are faced with a cancer diagnosis, or post treatment to improve their self-care, through directed nutrition and lifestyle support.
In 2004 when my husband, a firefighter, became ill with aggressive brain cancer, I saw for myself the harmful side effects that surgery, chemo and radiation have on the body. I became determined to help support his treatments with alternative and complementary medicine, supplements and nutritional corrections.
Unfortunately, my husband passed away in 2006 but going through that journey with him along with the research I conducted to find ways to support him really piqued my interest in the power of nutrition and later helped propel me to pursue studies to become a Holistic Nutritionist.
Shortly after graduating as a Nutritionist I inadvertently discovered the cancer coaching program and immediately thought; this is what I was meant to do and enrolled in the program.
Little did I know that just a few short months later, in 2011, after becoming certified as a Professional Cancer coach my 27 year old son would be diagnosed with malignant melanoma and the journey began again.
He was a stage 3 out of 4 and level 4 out of 5 which was not very good at all since it had already reached several lymph nodes in his neck.
I’m very happy to say that nearly four years later with my knowledge and guidance and his hard work and determination he is still cancer free despite the odds.
