The terms "cure" and "cancer" generally do not appear in the same sentence, except to describe what we all hope for the future. 

Yet Glenn Sabin swears his health regimen allowed him to recover from leukemia.  And he's gotten the attention and support of medical professionals, including Rogue Valley oncologist Dawn Lemanne

She helped Sabin write a book describing his medical odyssey, "n of 1".  The name refers to the number of patients in a medical study... and in Sabin's case, he's the ONE who took part in his therapies.  Dawn Lemanne is our guest.
