    At 27 years old, Katherine Lawrence was an Iraq war veteran, but it was the battle she was facing at home that would prove to be the toughest.

    "I started to have really bad pain in my abdomen, and I found out I had severe endometriosis and uterine cysts and ovarian cysts," said Lawrence.

    "My doctor wanted to put me into early menopause, and then schedule me for a hysterectomy," said Lawrence.

    Desperate to avoid that, she started eating a low-fat, vegan diet and in just five weeks her health problems were virtually gone.

    "My doctor was amazed," said Lawrence.

    Now, she teaches cooking classes to help prevent and battle cancer in conjunction with a non-profit group called The Cancer Project.

    Students are armed with the information to make better decisions at the grocery store, and with recipes like eggplant parmesean and guiltless chocolate mousse. Your family might never even know the food is good for them.
