Born in 1971, Kris Carr is a New York Times and #1 Amazon best-selling author, wellness activist and cancer “thriver.”
Carr is most well-known for the way she’s dealing with her cancer diagnosis. On Valentine’s Day in 2003, Carr was diagnosed with a rare and incurable — yet slow-growing — stage 4 cancer: epitheliod hemangioendothelioma. However, this news sparked a deep desire in Carr to live her life to the fullest. She says she wanted to feel better, love harder and enjoy her life more fully. So she hit the road on a deep-healing pilgrimage.
Carr wrote the New York Times bestsellers “Crazy Sexy Diet” and “Crazy Sexy Kitchen.” She’s also documented her battle against cancer in her documentary film, “Crazy Sexy Cancer.”
Carr grew up in Pawling, New York and attended the Wooster School in Danbury, Connecticut. She attended the School of Performing Arts in New Milford, Connecticut, where she studied dance and Italian. Later, after high school, she attended Sarah Lawrence College and later Marymount Manhattan College where she majored in English Literature and Art History.
She began her career as a dancer, American actress and photographer living in New York City. As an actress, she appeared in both on and off Broadway productions, as well as in film and televisions. Her appearances include Law & Order and Budweiser beer commercials. She’s also played the ghost of Marilyn Monroe alongside actor Peter Falk in Arthur Miller’s “Mr. Peter’s Connections.”
Carr also directed and choreographed stage productions regionally and abroad and served as a faculty member at the Stone Street Studios and Playwrights Horizons Theater School, both as NYU.
From 1999 to 2006, Carr had a photography business in New York City, where she shot portraits and headshots for actors. Carr closed the studio a few years after she was diagnosed to pursue filmmaking and writing full-time.
Carr lectures at medical schools, hospitals, wellness centers, corporations (like Whole Foods) regularly. She is also a contributing editor for Natural Health Magazine and writes for many online publications.

Companies and Investments
Natural Health magazine (contributing editor).
1) Get back to nature and back to the garden – preferably the organic garden – when affordable – when not, try to choose fruits and veggies that are less sprayed. There are more than 80,000 chemicals in our world today. Eating them and putting them on our bodies is a dangerous proposition.
2) Create an anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle. Learn about pH, the acid/alkaline balance, and say goodbye to the SAD, acidic diet in favor of alkaline raw organic veggies, sprouts, green drinks, green smoothies, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, love and oxygen.
3) Drink lots of clean, purified water.
4) Decrease the amount of animal products you consume (especially dairy products) and move toward more of a plant-based diet.
5) Make time for fun, for love, for laughter!
