Cancer-Kicking!… Explained

Being a Cancer-Kicker doesn’t necessarily mean that you ever had cancer, or that you beat it. It could – of course – but you can certainly be a cancer survivor and not be a Cancer-Kicker. Our definition of Cancer-Kicking! is an ongoing, lifelong activity and mindset instead of an event from the past that defined you. Many Cancer-Kickers! who join our Local Chapters, attend our Cancer-Kicking! Tuesdays workshops or our annual Summit never had cancer before. They are Cancer-Kickers because they all have one goal in common: to live a healthy and happy life and stay away from killer diseases as much as humanly possible.

Dr. Funk’s Orchard of Life touches on 10 different “trees” to create the most perfect anti-disease environment for your life. Some trees are more important than others, and being a Cancer-Kicker doesn’t mean that you are 100% committed to every single thing that is recommended to build the most perfect orchard for your own life. However, it does mean that you understand what you can control, and that you have an active interest in implementing those thoughts and actions that can maximally improve your health. If you have read Dr. Funk’s book, attended our Summit or Tuesdays events, or have browsed the Power Up website and are even remotely interested in taking further action to improve your health – then you have taken the first step to being a Cancer-Kicker. Here it is straight from the Power Up Dictionary of Health:

can·cer kick·ing

/’kansər kikiNG/

The daily decision to purposefully and enthusiastically embrace the thoughts and behaviors that have been scientifically proven to maximize health and happiness, while simultaneously kicking the risk of killer diseases to a curb far, far away.
