After high school, I received two degrees: BA in Psychology & MA in Health Education. My wife, Beth, and I live in Russell Township (in Geauga County), with 17 dogs! All are Pugs except for one English Toy Spaniel. Beth breeds & shows Pugs. I have my own healthcare seminar / consulting company focusing on dramatically enhancing communication between patients and healthcare professionals. I use the name, Edward Leigh, as my professional name. In 1999, I became seriously ill with Stage III Colon Cancer. I am well today. Katie Couric & Montel Williams have interviewed me regarding my cancer journey. The Discovery Health Channel chronicled my story on their show, Mystery Diagnosis. (Beth and I appear on the video below, where Montel interviews us regarding my botched cancer experiences. The show features clips from the Discovery Health Channel show, where Beth and I portray ourselves in recreated scenes of my healthcare story.)

Edward Leigh -- Recovery from Dramatic Illness

Trusting the wrong doctor almost killed him. Montel Williams interviews motivational speaker Edward "Eddie" Leigh regarding his dramatic medical story. He developed abdominal problems in 1997. His first doctor told him there was nothing seriously wrong. Two-and-a-half (2 ½) years later a new doctor discovers he has Stage III colon cancer. After surgery and a year of grueling chemotherapy, he is well today
