Hi, I'm Mason Bridegan and here's my story, and how cold press juicing at Inheritance Juicery is helping me defeat my stage 4 cancer diagnosis:
I am from Broken Arrow and graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2019 with a bachelor's of science in supply chain management, where I was also a member of the university's men's tennis team. Following my graduation, I relocated to Naples, Florida, and worked in the supply chain department for an aerospace manufacturer. I had been in Naples for a little over a year when, in August of 2020, I received news that rocked my world - a stage 4 cancer diagnosis. Cholangiocarcinoma (a tongue twister) is the name of my rare disease. Fewer than 20,000 people are diagnosed each year, with the vast majority of them being over the age of 70. Consequently, not much is known about this disease and therefore the prognosis is generally poor. Many people are given six to twelve months to live after discovery. After some deliberation with my loved ones, we decided it was best for me to move back home and seek treatment.
After a grueling year filled with many trials and tribulations, through my own research, I found that I can set my body up for success with nutrition. Many resources such as Radical Remission authored by Dr. Kelley Turner and Chris Beat Cancer by Chris Wark have drastically changed my mindset when it comes to healing my cancer. More specifically, I discovered cold press juicing, and the numerous health benefits it provides. Juicing offers health benefits such as a greater concentration of nutrients, increased consumption of fruits and vegetables, and an enhanced absorption of vital nutrients. I firmly believe that food is medicine and as the saying goes - you are what you eat!
With my newly found love for nutrition I soon discovered Inheritance Juicery, Tulsa’s only all organic, cold pressed juice bar. Not only does Inheritance offer a variety of healthy cold pressed beverages, they also allow individuals to create their own custom juices. Through this I was able to create a juice that best fits my needs and continues to aid me in my battle with cancer.
My juice consists of celery, carrot, green apple, orange, lemon, and turmeric. This juice formula is packed with nutrients. Carrots are high in vitamin A, alpha carotene, and beta carotene. Furthermore, celery contains calcium, potassium, and magnesium along with vitamins A, C, and K. That's just to name a few of the vitamins and minerals this juice provides! So when you purchase this juice not only will your body thank you, but so will thousands of cancer patients, because with every purchase of this juice, 50% of proceeds will be donated to The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation, which is a global 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission to find a cure and improve the quality of life for those affected by cholangiocarcinoma.
Inheritance Juicery and I have come together to spread the word on the numerous health benefits cold press juicing has to offer, as well as, donate and help fund the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation. We have set the lofty goal of raising $30,000, bearing in mind the extreme expense of researching for a cure.
On behalf of Inheritance Juicery, the team, and I, we thank you in advance for taking the time to read this developing story. Not only do we greatly appreciate any and all donations, but we would love for you to help us share this story, because we strongly believe this cause can change lives.
