Nissimov, whom Patch profiled last May, lost her nearly two-year battle with adrenal cancer on Jan. 25.
Sigi Nissimov, a professional bellydancer who owned the Life Movement Spirit and Dance Center on Saddle River Road, died Jan. 25 after a nearly two-year battle with adrenal cancer. She was 43. Nissimov, whose fundraising efforts Patch profiled last May, turned to alternative medicine in August 2011, rather than pursue non-curative exploratory surgery or additional chemotherapy after doctors gave her only a few months to live. Her alternative lifestyle, which involved eating only organic foods, having a biochemist monitor her blood levels, consulting with a Chinese doctor on her intake of herbal medicines and spending an hour each day in an infrared sauna, sustained her for nearly 18 months. "Maybe I’m brave, maybe I’m stupid, but it doesn’…

Rather than give up after learning last August that her adrenal cancer had returned and that she likely had only a few months to live, Sigi Nissimov used the opportunity to regain control of her life. With radiation out of the question due to the extent of her tumors, specialists suggested Nissimov consider exploratory surgery and more rounds of chemotherapy -- although neither option was considered curative. At best, the treatments might extend her life by a few months, doctors told her. “At that point I decided I won’t do any more Western medicine,” Nissimov said. “I decided to take control and do research. I discovered a world that offered me so many alternative ways.” For the past eight months, the 42-year-old professional belly dancer…
