Dr. Sherry Fong’s interest in holistic medicine came about after a heartbreaking diagnosis: her 94-year-old grandmother had cancer. The news came in 1994, before the Internet age, so Sherry spent countless hours poring over medical and nutrition books to study every possible way to care for the woman who had raised her.
