Mari Lewis, the YouTuber who boasted that her vegan diet based on juicing and raw vegetables could cure her cancer and lesbianism, passed away in December, her niece informed. Liz Johnson, Lewis’ niece, and the YouTube’s channel co-owner declared that shortly before dying, the vegan vlogger gave up juicing for radiation and chemotherapy, despite her advising against them.
Vegan Vlogger Diagnosed with Aggressive Form of Blood Cancer
Liz Johnson reveals that Lewis was battling with a rare form of highly aggressive blood cancer. Although the disease went into total remission, last year, the doctors told the vegan vlogger that her cancer is back and advised her at commencing treatment as soon as possible.
Lewis, who lived with her mother, believed that her cancer returning is the inevitable result of her mother’s microwaved-cooked dinners. Thus, with the help of her niece, the woman turned towards vlogging and piece together her own health and wellness YouTube channel.
Throughout the videos posted on her channel, the vegan vlogger claimed that she would win the battle against cancer with juicing and a raw diet. Furthermore, Lewis also claimed that the ingredients she used for her all-natural juices were revealed by God, who was guiding her hand when she went shopping.
Lewis’ miracle cures were not limited to cancer, but to lesbianism, as well. Towards the end of her life, the woman seems to have renounced her spirituality and natural diet and would have agreed to seek more conventional means of treatment such as radiation and chemotherapy.
Unfortunately, the vegan vlogger passed away back in December, after cancer spread to her lungs and liver. Johnson, who’s now in charge of keeping Lewis’ dream alive, continues vlogging about healthy choices and how to live on a dime.
