North County man beats cancer, obesity, diabetes, smoking


CBS News 8 recently told the story of Doug Siverly, who received life-saving treatment for stomach cancer under the care of Scripps Clinic oncologist Marin Xavier, MD. To thank Dr. Xavier and to help preserve his future health, Doug lost 143 pounds, overcame diabetes and kicked a decades-long smoking habit. The Valley Center man also exercises regularly and cooks his own healthy meals.
