A Wisconsin woman said she was able to fight off cancer with a healthy diet. That may sound far-fetched, but when heavy weights at Harvard University take note, there has to be some merit to the claim.

That’s the case for 41-year-old mother of two Kathy Bero, who was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer in 2005 and looking at a 21-month survival rate, KTIV-TV reported.

She underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, which all took a toll, but the cancer was aggressive.

"Eleven months after my first diagnosis, I was diagnosed with a high-grade tumor in my head and neck," Bero said. "My kidneys were failing; my liver was failing. I told my oncologist that I'm done with that protocol because one way or another, I'm going to die. And I don't want to go that way."

With no other options left, Bero ditched the chemo and decided to use alternative therapy that included eating anti-angiogenic foods as well as undergoing the energy healing of Reiki, meditation and powerful visualization techniques.

Today she reportedly is cancer free and researchers are interested in the diet she is following.

For years experts have touted certain foods for their cancer fighting properties.

It has been widely theorized that anti-angiogenic foods such as organic berries, leeks, garlic and carrots prevent cancer from spreading by blocking the creation of blood vessels that tumors need to grow in the body.

The concept hit mainstream when Dr. William Li, president and medical director of the Angiogenesis Foundation, delivered a TED talk in which he presented the theory to the world.

Now researchers from Harvard are interested in conducting further studies into Bero’s diet after hearing her story.

And she is not the only one seeing results.

Phil Baugh, a brain cancer patient, has been learning from Bero, and he said his cancer has stopped growing thanks largely to the food he has been eating.

"She's teaching me food is the best form of medicine," he said, according to KTIV-TV.

For Bero, the fact that Harvard researchers plan to study her case was exciting and validating.

"I'm no longer the crazy cancer patient," she said. "There's a real science that is going to be there."

Doctors often recommend a healthy eating plan as complementary treatment when it comes to patients undergoing cancer therapy, however they warn against stopping treatment completely.
