Rob Mooberry and his future wife, Amanda, met while working at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas.
Amanda was employed as a cocktail waitress and Rob as a bartender. From the very first time they met, there was love in the air.
Not long after the couple start dating, however, their relationship was put to the ultimate test.
Rob began to inexplicably struggle; he often felt under the weather and complained about his stomach. Just one year after he and Amanda had met, he’d lost 60 pounds (30 kg).
The couple visited many doctors, but none could tell them exactly what was wrong.
Finally, one surgeon decided to investigate via surgery, because “no healthy man loses 60 pounds kilos in one year.”
Following the surgery, the couple was dealt with devastating news.
The doctors were forced to give the couple the worst: Rob had colon cancer of a most serious kind. During the surgery, a doctor had removed a tumor as big as a fist.
Unfortunately, the worst was yet to come. The cancer had already spread to his bowels, lymph nodes and bladder.
Doctors estimated that Rob only had a few weeks to live. That night, as the couple was digesting the news, Rob realized he was on timer.
Amanda explained, “One night as I laid in the hospital bed next to Rob, he turned to me and whispered, ‘I want to get married.’”
“I immediately cried out, “So do I!”‘
Rob and Amanda tied the knot just two days before he was due to start radiation therapy.
Following the ceremony, Rob’s treatment began. However, after the first round, he showed no signs of improving.
Instead of continuing radiation and chemotherapy, Rob decided to take a break from conventional cancer treatments and let Rob’s body rid itself of some of the toxins.
In pure desperation, the pair turned to alternative medicines.
“We both changed our diets to strictly vegan, experimented with different herbs and even did coffee enemas,” Amanda said.
The doctors questioned the logic — as of yet, there is no scientific evidence of alternative methods of curing cancer.
But, miraculously, after just three weeks, Rob returned for more scans, which showed that 80 percent of the cancer was gone from his body.
By December 2014, all traces of the disease were gone from Rob’s body.
Rob’s story quickly went viral, with many people believing that the vegan died had cured him.
Rob, though, is keen to stress that he doesn’t want to spread the rumor that going vegan will definitely defeat cancer.
However, he does hope that he can inspire others to choose a healthier lifestyle.
After Rob’s health began to improve, the couple decided to start a family together. Because of the radiotherapy, it was impossible for them to conceive naturally. Instead, they turned to IVF.
After one heartbreaking miscarriage, Amanda got pregnant with twins. The new parents welcomed their children into the world in 2016.
“It’s crazy to think that a few years ago we had all the odds stacked against us. But It just goes to show you that love can create miracles,” Amanda said.
Irrespective of exactly what got rid of Rob’s cancer, I’m convinced of one thing: Love is the most powerful force we have.
