Tuesday, December 10: George and Judi Moore have a unique story centered around their health crisis that began 12 years ago when George was diagnosed with a rare, one in a million cancer that required an 18-hour surgery resulting in the loss of 5 major organs. This led them on difficult journey of treatment and recovery for George to regain his health. In this effort, Judi knew that they could not rely only on the traditional forms of treatment such as surgery and chemo but also a willingness to consider alternative forms of treatment along with making healthy lifestyle changes. In this process Judi found her passion for helping others who may be facing a health crisis or simply desiring to live a healthier lifestyle. As result she has become a certified health coach and formed her own business known a Moore Healthy Living.
