A multi-level marketing seller has died after she turned to holistic remedies to try to cure her colon cancer and rejected chemotherapy.
Jessie Lee Ward, who also went as Boss Lee, was diagnosed with stage-four colon cancer back in March after she completed routine bloodwork testing.
Her oncologist immediately recommended intense chemotherapy treatment as her best shot, but Ward thought otherwise.
Though her doctor told her she would be ‘dead by Christmas‘, she pursued natural remedies.
She dabbled in alternative treatments such as a hyperbaric oxygen chamber, ‘magnetic’ treatments, ‘ozone’ treatments and ‘red- light therapy’.
In an Instagram video, Ward reacted to her doctor’s medical advice and said: ‘My surgeon and the oncologist are one hundred percent pimps.
‘Not of women, of chemo. They love that h*e. I have never in my life seen such a strong and compelling sales pitch. They really should go into sales.’
