"Cancer numbers starting to decline." Walleye Dan's Story

Updated: Apr 19, 2023

I'm just so excited to share how Just Juice impacts lives in the Brainerd Lakes Community! Just Juice is more than a brand, a company or a bottle on a shelf. To me-it is about the people who are consuming it and how it betters their lives. I have asked some friends whose paths I have crossed on this journey if they would like to share their story and the impact it has had on their lives. I am forever grateful for their openness and willingness they all have to share their story.

When I asked Dan to share his story about how Just Juice impacted his life, he shared: "I was introduced to Just Juice by John Poston (former State Representative), who was so kind to buy me a jug every week as I was coming out of my stem cell transplant down at Mayo Clinic."

Each week I would bring growlers of fresh juice to the Kids Against Hunger building, (now called the Outreach Program). I would leave them outside and a friend or family member would come grab them and deliver to Dan. When I asked Dan about his cancer journey, he shared: "I had been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma back in July of 2019, after my unsuccessful stem cell transplant, I began drinking Just Juice and it seemed to help my cancer numbers start to decline. I did this for approximately a year, also taking my immunotherapy drugs and the combination seemed to do the trick." When I asked Dan how things are for him now-"These days my cancer numbers are pretty much in check and I will now grab a bottle of Just Juice from time to time at Schaefer's Foods in Nisswa." I wondered if he had a favorite juice! When I asked him he went on to say- "I don’t have any particular flavor that I “go to”, it just depends on the day."I asked Dan what he would tell someone who has never tried juicing or a Just Juice product- "I certainly would recommend you give Just Juice a whirl. It may be just what the Dr. ordered!"

Thank you Dan for sharing your story and for allowing Just Juice to be a part of your healing journey!

I wish drinking Just Juice was the answer for cancer and that it was that simple. Unfortunately, it is a bit more complex than that. The body goes through such a journey and needs the extra vitamins and nutrients that juicing can provide. Especially to someone who may not have an appetite or the ability to chew hard foods. I lost my mom to cancer in April of 2013, and I can't help but wonder if I knew then what I know now, perhaps I would have been able to help her. All I know now is that it is my mission to help anyone I can to live a healthier lifestyle by adding these nutrient dense beverages into our bodies.

A video series I came across since then, has been very helpful to understand the impact of juicing and cancer. The link below will bring you to that site. Explore it for yourself! I wish you all a healthy, joy filled, long and well lived life! ♥️Jami

Why a lakeside luxury event?

The idea for the Lakeside Luxury Experience came to me this past winter. This was by far the least snowiest winter in Minnesota that I’ve ever experienced! While there wasn’t a lot of snow which was n
