YA GOTTA BELIEVE
Since I was struck down from 2 full-time jobs from Glioblastoma Multiform brain cancer, I have come to realize how important it is to eat lots of clean (organic) fruits and vegetables everyday, along with staying away from sugar, preservatives and processed foods. The Tug McGraw Brain Food Garden gives me the chance to raise my own clean, healthy vegetables, so that I can live a clean, healthy life.
