"A Journey through Cancer" is the personal story of a woman doctor and minister's experience with breast cancer. From diagnosis through treatment, she chronicles her experience of navigating through the medical system--and the sometimes bewildering array of alternative therapies that are available. Everything that she had learned in ten years of medical practice was put to the test.

From preparing for surgery to practical tips for "getting through chemo," this book contains a wealth of real-world experience for any cancer patient or family member. And from the perspective of a minister, the book explores the emotional and spiritual challenges that come with a diagnosis of cancer. Neroli Duffy has written a guidebook for anyone wanting to integrate spiritual, alternative and conventional therapies in the treatment of cancer.
