D. Anthony Evans

Plant-based Inspirational Cancer Thriver, Speaker, Life Coach

D. Anthony Evans’ outward appearance does not suggest that he suffered from aggressive cancer. At age 6, D was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis, a rare inherited condition where tumors grow on nerve tissue. He’s had 11 surgeries, 9 were 9 hour-long operations and 385 tumors removed to date. Evans said, “Without his plant-based lifestyle, intense fitness regimen and positive mindset, he would not have survived.” D serves as an Ambassador Constituent Team Leader for the American Cancer Society, inspirational speaker, a cancer thriver and awareness advocate, an author, a coach, and an at-risk youth mentor.

His sport? Training to live. A powerlifter prior to a 2012 terminal cancer diagnosis, D. defied a six-month life expectancy with a positive mindset, plant-based eating and extreme fitness. Today he teaches athletes and cancer patients how to manage, reverse or prevent disease through a plant-based lifestyle.

He inspires others with his remarkable story of survival, healthy living, and discipline.
