Living Proof Cancer is NOT a Death Sentence.

I created the Templeton Wellness Foundation to help you fight and win your battle against cancer. After staring death in the face over thirty years ago and beating cancer using a natural, radical approach to healing, I’m living my best life now. It is my personal mission to inspire HOPE and to provide the latest resources and information for anyone facing a similar battle or seeking cancer prevention. If you are ready to roll up your sleeves and fight to turn your life around… if you are determined NOT to become just another sad statistic… then you’ve come to the right place.

I have had the distinct privilege of knowing James for many years. His fight was unprecedented so many years ago, yet he rolled up his sleeves and went to work. Armed with “change” and “courage,” James set out to defeat his cancer. This site represents his incredible victory

I am Living Proof – Surviving Cancer Against All Odds

James Templeton, Surviving Cancer Against All Odds

I had life by the tail… or so I thought

I was 32 years old and at the prime of my life when everything changed in an instant. Married with a 2-year-old daughter, living on a small farm in Texas, I owned a few businesses and was well on my way to becoming a millionaire. I worked out at the gym, ran every morning, and thought I was doing all the right things to take care of my health. It felt like a punch in the gut when I was handed the diagnosis of stage IV melanoma cancer.

I crawled out of the hospital at 2 AM and never looked back

After a painful and extensive surgery to remove lymph nodes from my groin, the plan was 80 rounds of chemotherapy, plus the possibility of more surgeries and radiation therapy. It was all experimental. Chemotherapy treatments were 8-10 hours long, with 5 days in the hospital afterward. They did hyperthermia, getting my body temperature dangerously high, then they injected typhoid serum, and followed that up with the chemo immediately afterward. I was scheduled for a series of 5 treatments like this every 2 months. It took me almost 2 months to get over each series because of how sick and weak it made me feel. All this misery and a whole lot of expense for only a 20% chance of surviving. After enduring 2 series of these chemo treatments, I asked the oncologist what my chances were. He admitted the treatments weren’t working and said, “Well, we’re all going to die someday.” I was not about to give in without a fight. I knew in my heart there had to be a better way, and at 2 o’clock in the morning, I literally crawled out of that hospital and found it.

Along the way, I discovered it was just as much about what you ate, as well as what you avoided. It was and still is, important to keep cancer-fighting superfoods in my diet.

Getting back my fighting spirit

I’m a 5th generation Texan and no doubt one of the last of the living cowboys. My ancestors fought and won the Battle of San Jacinto, the pivotal event in the Battle of the Alamo which helped to shape the fabric of our country. It was probably from my ancestors that I inherited my fighting spirit. It took everything I had to win my war with cancer… but I did.

What I learned transformed my life

After defeating cancer on my own terms, I wasn’t content to go back to my old way of life. I had come too far and learned too much. There was no way I could hold back from letting others in on what I had learned from the healers and educators I had met on my crazy journey.

I founded Uni Key Health Systems in 1992 and now the Templeton Wellness Foundation as my way of giving back and helping others achieve the health and wellness they are seeking. Now, I’m passing on the secrets to beating the odds against a formidable foe that I didn’t see coming – cancer. Roll up your sleeves. Let’s go to work. I’ll show you how to get started.

Read James’ Full Story

Get inspired with this intimate look at James’ harrowing journey from “terminal” cancer patient to empowered survivor. Thirty+ years later he shares the lessons he’s learned for beating the odds of surviving cancer… and the keys to lasting health.

James Templeton, whom I know personally, is a determined and courageous man who overcame Stage 4 Melanoma Cancer more than 30 years ago using predominantly natural means. His story and other cancer survivor stories on his website will give hope to those with cancer who have been told by conventional doctors that there is no hope. I urge the readers of his website who have cancer to follow the examples of these cancer survivors and to become not only a survivor, but a thriver like James.
