Crazy Sexy Cancer Books & Film
The story of a woman who turned the camera on herself and became an example of the American spirit.
Kris Carr’s Crazy Sexy Cancer will turn your world face forward so you can live every day like it’s your last, because one day, you’ll be right.
Kris Carr has done something extraordinary with this book: She has put cancer in its place. She has triumphed, and paved a path by which others can triumph too. She deserves our most heartfelt ‘bravo’.
I read Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips cover to cover on a a flight from LA to NY. I laughed out loud, wept quietly, and most of all, marveled at the magic that is Kris Carr. If Deepak Chopra, What To Expect When You're Expecting, and Sex and the City had a love child, it would look just like Kris' Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips. It is sheer perfection for cancer 'cowgirls' and their loved ones—colorful, soulful and intimate.
If you have the inspiration, desire and intention to be a survivor, the abundant information in this book will coach you in a way that will make you an empowered star performer and winner in the face of adversity.
Carr’s documentary, and her new book, Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips, may be the first girlfriend’s guide to living with cancer—a sign of the times really. More and more people are living with cancer, and Carr’s message is that they can live full lives and don’t have to be “defined” by the c-word.
The experiences of author and filmmaker Kris Carr, who was diagnosed with a rare and incurable cancer, illustrates how successfully one can manage cancer as a chronic disease.
Crazy Sexy Cancer blends humor, daring, and candor in a guide for taking charge of your own well-being, even when the odds are stacked sky-high against you.
Ease your cancer fears. Add to Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips to your library whether you’ve been diagnosed, know someone who has, or simply want to take charge of your health.
[G]ets to the heart of what every cancer patient wants: the chance to live life just like she always did, and maybe better.
A must for anyone touched by the disease and anyone who fears it.
Maybe she’s crazy, maybe she’s sexy, but Kris Carr is most certainly a survivor.
Rebel with her cause. Carr’s story is a girl-finds-self-and-outs-cancer-in-its-place story. Even more, the self she found happened to be the type who pulls on a pair of cowboy boots, blazes a new trail in survivorship, and creates her own feisty brand of kick-cancer whoop-ass.
Engaging … Carr is a bright screen presence.

Stories of Transformation & Heartfelt Thanks
Kris's book, Crazy Sexy Cancer Survivor, was my bible as I cared for my mother during her final year. It was the joy and positive message that empowered ME and allowed me to care for me through that journey. The book was a lifesaver again as I cared for my father during his final year... Kris inspired my father and I to write a book about his journey and though he didn't get a chance to see the book, he knew we had pressed send to the publisher. Thank you, Kris, for carrying me through the loss. Joyously and empowered.
In the middle of trying to change my physical, emotional and career paths, your website, emails and amazing food ideas bring me hope every day.
I started reading your book, Crazy Sexy Diet, the other day, and I have to say that it is fantastic! I love your writing style. I feel like I'm sitting across from you having a conversation. Thank you for sharing your journey with us and helping all of us in the process!
Doctor's appointment confirms I am successfully tackling my adrenal fatigue & hypothryoidism. Guided by the lovely Kris Carr.
Just finished reading your amazing e-book, and just downed my first green smoothie. Yeah, me! Nothing to be fearful about after all.
Reading the eye opening book Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr. A great guide to understanding the real meaning of health foods.
I just wanted to say thank you for writing such an awesome book! I just read Crazy Sexy Diet and loved every minute of it! I will be recommending friends, family and clients to read this book. I'm a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN) with a passion to educate/coach people on how to get back to a whole foods diet and leave the processed junk behind. It is really awesome that you are offering people, not just those with cancer but everyone, hope and inspiration that they can make changes that might just save their lives!
I saw you speak yesterday, and you were so inspirational! I will keep on keeping on with the healthy eating changes I have made. You had me roaring with laughter. Dealing with serious health challenges in a humorous way was again inspiring. Thank you for being you so we can do the same for ourselves. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and courage. I am inspired and so grateful I was able to see your presentation. I will be smiling tomorrow as I juice my kale.
I'm on day 8 of my first juice cleanse. I just bought this book, and it's awesome! Everything you would expect from Kris. It's beautifully laid out, colorful and very inspiring. I'm only on page 10! Can't wait to try some of the recipes.
A little less than three months ago when my Papillary Thyroid Cancer hadn't budged when confronted with surgery and radiation and was starting to toss around words like "aggressive" and "rare", I became voracious for knowledge and decided to read about the effects of a vegan diet on cancer patients until my eyes were sore. Two weeks ago, I went to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston to get a second opinion. After an exhausting day of relentless testing, the message, "Keep doing whatever it is you're doing because it's working. Enjoy getting your life back together", were the results... Thank you for being a strong woman. Thank you for telling the world of your life. Thank you for everything.
I just want to say you have helped me finally get real with all of the struggles of trying to be healthy and vegan. Your wild, crazy, sexy, colorful and forgiving kick-ass approach has brought me over the line into this world I now fully understand. You rock, and I'm just so happy to have found you. Reading Crazy Sexy Diet and following the cleanse I feel like I know you and that you're right there with me giving me love. I'm physically and mentally feeling amazing too!
I just wanted to say a quick mahalo (as we say in Hawaii for thank you)! After reading Crazy Sexy Diet, I became a vegan cold turkey, and my super nasty eczema, which I have been prescribed so many medications for, is GONE! I wish I would have changed my diet sooner! Thanks so much for changing my entire outlook on life!
Love you, Kris. I bought your book, Crazy Sexy Diet, two years ago. I feel so much better eating a healthy diet. My IBS is gone—still waiting to completely eliminate my migraines, but they are getting better.
I know this sounds a bit cheesy, but you have inspired me so much that a week ago I decided to change my life and really start to respect what i was putting into my body. And although I always was into nutrition and health, I was still eating junk food. I bought a juicer a few days ago and a ton of whole foods and have begun to take pilates and yoga classes. I already feel amazing. Thank you for inspiring me to look after the one and only body I'll ever have. I am in London, England, so you're reaching far and wide. :-)
I was diagnosed with breast cancer a week ago, and I bought your book Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips last week after meeting with a surgeon. I don't think I have laughed so much as I have today as I began your incredible book. Thank you is just too simple. So amazing to have you put my feelings into words & I'm getting my 'save my ass team together.' God bless you Kris, love and light.
Hi, Kris! I am a Stage 4 NHL survivor. I found Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips on my own while browsing through a book store after my diagnosis. You rock! You were just what I needed, when I needed it. I was so very fortunate to run across your book. You were inspirational and everyone, every story and all the great advice in your book made me feel so much better about my situation. It was hell going through, it but I survived, and thanks to you, I was able to do it with some dignity and grace! Thanks so much! You're truly a blessing to many people. Thanks for doing all the hard work. I think of you often. Glad to see you doing well! Lots of love!
Feeling thankful for you today :) I read your book, Crazy Sexy Diet, in January of this year and have been dedicated to drinking green juice ever since. It has changed my life, and I vow to never stop! I am a mom of 3 turning 40 in a few days, and I honestly feel better than ever. Thank you so much for your inspiration, Kris!!! xxoo
Kris, your books were given to me by two separate friends when I was diagnosed in October with Stage 2 breast cancer. I just want you to know what a lifeline they have become. Your spirit resonates with mine, and without even knowing it, you've made this journey so much easier. Thank you so much!
Thank you for coming to Las Vegas...[I] fell in love with you within the first 3 minutes of your presentation! Seriously! You are amazing, and so engaged with your audience... [L]ooking forward to seeing you again in the future!
Kris, you inspire me to fulfill my dreams, to write and to live my life committed to helping others find joy, freedom, love and peace, right here, right now. Thanks for being you and for being a light in this world.
Woo hoo! My unicorn vegan cancer kickin' world shines brighter today because of you, sweet sister! Thank you for your continued thoughtful words of wisdom and for sharing yourself with all of us. You were on fire today!
Your book Crazy Sexy Diet was simply awsome to read! Thank you so much for sharing your experiences, your knowledge, your wisdom.
Just finished watching Crazy Sexy Cancer. You are FANTASTIC, Kris. Thanks for the constant inspiration!
I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer on November 9th. I am 32. I was freaking out and decided to go Christmas shopping with my hubby the next day. We were in the bookstore, and I was looking at fitness books, thinking, "How can I stay fit through this", and nestled into a corner in the wrong section was Crazy Sexy Cancer. Kris, this book has saved me. I finished it last week and just got your documentary and basically will be purchasing everything you have written... Most likely, [I] will have to go through 52 weeks of specialized HER2 chemo. I have brought this book to every appointment and have told all of my doctors and young women in the waiting room about you and your book. It should be required waiting room material and/or suggested to young patients. You have made an experience that seemed hopeless a journey for me. You have inspired me, and I will not get down about this. Thank you for writing this book. It was fate, and the universe put your book in front of me when I needed it most. I know that living with cancer, I will never be the same, but your book has made me realize that I can make something great happen out of this. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Your books and your positivity have changed my life! Even my former meat eating and sugar loving husband has now taken on your advice. I am so thankful for you!
I was diagnosed with MS when I was 18 and everything the docs told me was so scary! I saw how strong and optimistic you were on Oprah, and I thought if she can do it than I can do it too! You were the positive and supportive influence I really needed in my life at that time. Now when I meet people at the MS clinic who aren't doing so good, I point them in your direction because you make eating healthy fun and not so scary. Just wanted to say thank you!! You were one of the main forces that woke me up to my own healing powers, and I am so grateful for that!
Kris, I'm so inspired by your story and everything you're doing! I was also diagnosed with a rare carcinoma in 2011. Cancer is such a personal attack on our lives, and I love the way you are fighting back! I've been feeling so lonely inside with this battle but you have made me feel like I'm not alone. Thank you for sharing your voice with so many. I hope I can do the same someday.
I first heard of Kris in 2005 when I had a tumor removed from my thyroid. Years later, when I was about 6 or 7 months pregnant with my first child, the doctor found a new tumor on my remaining thyroid. My husband and I were so scared. At that time is when Kris came out with her book, Crazy Sexy Diet. I ran out and bought it and did everything she advised. I was feeling so much better and life was great. After my next appointment, I was so eager to get the results back that I called almost everyday. The nurse told me "everything was fine". I needed more detail, so I asked to talk to the doctor. The doctor got on the phone, and she said, "Adina, the tumor is gone." I was beyond happy. Kris saved my life, and my son will thank her someday.
I've been through the mill with skin issues that my body lovingly placed on my face, making it impossible for me to ignore the fact that there was a change in order. Finally over the last five months, things have really clicked, and I know what works for me and what doesn't. Very simply put, moderate exercise, like rebounding and yoga, coupled with a high-raw, nearly vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free diet heals and maintains healthy glowing skin for me. Kris Carr and her book, Crazy Sexy Diet, opened my eyes to this new way of living, and it has totally changed my life. With 22 pounds gone and glowing skin, I'm never going back! Thank you, Kris!!! Xoxo!
I'm feeling fabulous and had to share it with you. 3 months ago I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, metastasised throughout my spine. As a healthy, active woman in her 30's, it was a huge shock. My sister-in-law sent me Kris' books, and I was inspired. It took me a few weeks to settle into the new lifestyle completely, but now that I have done it, I look and feel fabulous. Science is backing up what I'm doing as two of my blood markers have dropped by over a third in the last 6 weeks! I am also taking Tamoxifen, so that must share some of the glory, but even my oncologist admits that such a rapid drop is as a result of more than just the meds. My primary tumour has shrunk to such an extent that I may be able to avoid surgery and chemo. This will probably never go away, but thanks to Kris' books my life and family are full of richness and joy. So a huge, sincere thank you. Put me on the list of lives lengthened through your love. Crazysexyliving ROCKS!
I have been through the Crazy Sexy 21-Day Cleanse five times now, and I have been amazed at how each time my body, mind and spirit shift into a different space. I no longer crave my 1-2 cups of coffee; I love my cup of organic green tea. I am hooked on my daily green smoothies and am having fun rotating the greens/fruits. I am now supporting my clients (I am a nutrition consult and personal trainer) through the 21-Day Cleanse (my running friends are feeling great!) and continue to feel inspired from how different my clients are feeling. They are reporting daily bowel movements (yeah!), sleeping like a baby, clear headed, more energy, happier and are glowing with vibrant health. I love going through this with them and feeling like a Plant Strong Superwoman. I can’t thank you enough, Kris Carr, for all you continue to share with us.
I was born with a rare genetic illness called Beta Thalassemia Major. My body can't produce red blood cells on its own, so I get them donated to me by other people. I have been doing this since the age of 3. I'm now 35. Before learning about you, I was receiving transfusions every other week for survival. After juicing for several months and changing my diet to a vegan (mostly raw) diet, the amount of time spent in the hospital has decreased dramatically. I managed to go 4 weeks on one occasion and now regularly go every three weeks! My heart bursts with fireworks for you every time I step into my doctor's office. You've changed my life. There isn't a patient I meet who I don't tell to go buy your books and watch your movie. I've been buying copies of CSD and handing them out to family members. Thank you for being a catalyst of grand proportions in my life!
Hi Kris, Just wanted to say you inspired me to start juicing after I read your article in Veg News. My husband and I have our green juice (Green Monster) everyday, since Dec. 2011, we both feel great! I am 63 and he is 65. Thanks to you we have so much energy and love to ride bikes. We ride 80 to 100 miles a week. Thanks again for your website and Veg News article.
After reading your book, Crazy Sexy Diet, we saved up to buy a good juicer and have been juicing regularly for the past few weeks. The energy it gives us is phenomenal, and it even cleared up my rosacea, which no amount of giving up wheat, sugar, dairy, (I am already a veggie) etc. would cure. Thanks so much for the inspiration, Kris, and keep those great vibes rolling!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you! for writing such a fantastic book. Your story and recovery are so inspiring, and I'm so grateful there is a book out there such as yours that gives a fun guide, packed with inspiration, ideas, and information on health. Crazy Sexy Diet made enemas and colonics sound fun and provided a green juice recipe that blew my mind. I feel so much better when I'm eating the things you suggest, and it's fantastic to have a wellness warrior like you out there encouraging millions of people to take care of themselves. Thank you, and I look forward to reading more advice and inspiration from you!
Thank you for sharing your wildly ironic and touching story about literally losing your balance. You really do practice what you preach, you walk the talk, and help and inspire so many people along the way. You taught me that my chronic fatigue immune deficiency and chronic migraines have been my teacher, not my motivation. My health is my motivation! When the fatigue lifts and the pains alleviate, I choose to stay on this path. I also have been tapping a lot, and I can hear you and Nick as if you were tapping along! You were both awesome at Omega, and you both inspired me to crank up the Adele and green drinks!
About a week ago my doctor got my lab results, and they showed a reversal in diabetes! She told me it was okay for me to go off of the medications. Happily off of them for one week now. Both your books and Dr. Hyman's books are what helped me make the changes. It's still a struggle, at times, because there are more changes ahead of me. But at least after two years of intense work on myself, I am finally going in the right direction. Thank you so much for sharing what you've learned on your own journey.
I want to say THANK YOU. You have inspired and changed my life in ways that are very far reaching and significant. I am striving everyday to put the best possible food in my mouth... I am not perfect, but I have come a long way.
I have watched a few of your videos, and I think you are just such an amazing inspiration and a lovely person. I just wanted to tell you how much your energy and spirit have motivated me to become an amazing wellness warrior like you. I am already starting to inspire my friends to make green drinks because they see the positive change in me.
You have inspired me, soothed me, fired me up and made me laugh. You have held my hand through some pretty rough times and, heck, you didn't even know it! I thank you, amazing lady. I hope that someday I can and will provide the same for someone else. You are an absolute joy. I'm so glad to know you.
Since reading Crazy Sexy Diet last summer, I feel like my life has indeed made “an auspicious shift” towards health and peace. Before I began, I had a small jar of ‘shit pickles’ – high blood pressure, cystic breasts, weight to lose, worry, etc… I transitioned from vegetarian to vegan, and I now start each day with my green juice and rarely miss a day. I am dry brushing, taking supplements, eating more delicious veggies than I ever have before, staying away from gluten, sugar and processed foods, drinking lots of water, meditating, practicing yoga and exercising. Self care isn’t just doing all those things, it is caring for myself by nourishing my body and my mind, simply through the choices I make on a daily basis. The outward, more obvious benefits, like losing 35-40 pounds, clearer skin, stronger nails and shrunken cysts (At the last ultrasound the technician said that they had almost completely disappeared!) are fantastic, but what truly makes me giddy are the differences I feel at a deeper level. My mind is clear, I fear less, I experience more compassion, I feel constant gratitude for things that once seemed banal, I am more aware of my thoughts, consciously choose positive, kinder thoughts and I like myself!
Kris, I had jaw surgery. With my jaw "wired" shut for 6 weeks, I decided to take advantage of the time and went on a green juice and smoothie diet. I felt soooo good. After the 6 weeks, I bought your Crazy Sexy Kitchen cookbook and have been eating a much more plant-based diet. I thought I ate really well before the surgery, but now I realize that I can feel so much better and have fewer migraines by eating more raw and plant-based. Thanks!
Hi, Kris! I am not vegan but lean into it most days of the week with my whole family. I recently purchased CSK and made the edamame dumplings with shallot and sherry sauce... OMG! I was VERY skeptical at the reaction my children might have, but they LOVED it! I cannot tell you how enthused they were! My pickiest eater having eaten the MOST! Amazing book and thanks so much!
Got your cookbook yesterday - so excited for the recipes, Kris! Juiced my morning "green" this a.m. and feel like I can tackle whatever is coming my way! Thanks for being such an inspiration and role model for all of us!
My dearest Kris, thank you and Chad Sarno, for creating Crazy Sexy Kitchen! It is BY FAR one of the best plant based cook books (and so much more!!!) I have ever bought. Recipes are amazing, easy and delish! Keep on sizzling!
