Kelis/instagram Kelis with husband Mike Mora
Kelis is candid about her health journey a year after her husband’s death.
In a new Instagram clip, the “Feed Them” singer, 43, opened up about how Mike Mora’s death and stage 4 stomach cancer diagnosis has affected her as she continues to focus on her well-being and that of his family. Mora died in March 2022 at age 37, having been diagnosed with cancer two years earlier in 2020.
“It’s been exactly a year…it’s crazy for me,” Kelis shared in the post’s caption. “I’m usually a very private person, especially when my family is involved. But there’s no denying the impact and evolution my husband’s passing has had on my life.”
“I get asked all the time how I started this journey. It’s a much longer conversation, but in short, what we were talking about here pushed me so deeply to understand our bodies and how our minds and emotions are so intertwined that you can’t process one without the other. Our thoughts and intentions are as powerful and essential as the health and shape of our skin,” she continued. “I want to live well and I’m the one sharing what I know to be true.”

In the Instagram video – which was posted in three different parts – the Bounty & Full founder explained that she started her wellness and farming journey when she was pregnant years ago. Kelis has three children – sons Knight, 13, and Shepherd, 7, as well as daughter Galilee, born in September 2020. “I just wanted to eat well,” she said. “When I got pregnant, I really started caring and thinking about it.”
And when her husband started battling cancer, which he revealed was occurring in September 2021, Kelis said things changed even more when they looked at hyperbaric chambers and therapy ‘ozone. Ozone therapy, which Kelis said was often combined with chemotherapy in countries like Russia, Japan and Cuba, was “a game-changer.” But unfortunately, Mora’s tumor came back and “started to spread”.
“We ended up meeting this brilliant handsome man who actually invented the hyperbaric chamber. He gave us a recipe and a list of these mushrooms to start taking.” While Kelis said she had taken something similar before, the man gave her family a specific recipe that he hoped would benefit them.
“We don’t know where to go,” she said. “We go to doctors for things that don’t make sense. Really, it’s our food. It’s the way we eat, it’s the way we live and breathe and put our feet in the ground. “
Because of this, Kelis said she started making what she calls brain food. When it was too late for her husband to eat, she further explained the importance of staying away from stress. “Just to add to that, every doctor we saw, every specialist, every nutritionist, every human being we found who had any expertise in this area was like, stress kills,” she said.
“I moved to the farm and we wanted to get away from all the stupid things that were stressing us out and worrying and worrying us and all those things that didn’t really matter,” she said. “So when you think about wellness and we think about health, it’s really something you can control with a little thought. Think a little more about it and always support your local farmers. Support your farmers Why? Because we care.

Kelis/instagram Kelis’ husband Mike Mora with children
Last September, Kelis told PEOPLE how she decided to focus on cherishing every moment of their time together following her husband’s cancer diagnosis. “It wasn’t something sudden. We were able to prepare, love each other and say goodbye,” she said, noting that the children were “still very aware” of Mora’s condition.
“We were able to spend the time we needed, as much as we were given, in the best way possible,” Kelis continued. “Is this a great situation? No, it’s awful, but I’m grateful.”
The musician and chef added that she made a conscious choice to “accept” the circumstances at the time. “It was out of our hands from the start,” she said. “We’re just grateful for what we had. It’s part of life.”
“It doesn’t change the fact that I’m heartbroken…but it does change how I choose to approach it,” she continued. “It reminds you of how short time is and that we have no control. I want to control what I can control – how I treat the people around me. I really want to celebrate people when they’re here. I don’t feel like it’s as helpful when they’re gone.”
