A Slice of Life: A Personal Story of Healing Through Cancer
Fourteen years ago, Lee Sturgeon-Day was diagnosed with breast cancer. Three years later, after a variety of treatments, her annual check-up showed her to be completely clear. She now counts herself one of the lucky ones and in this account of her illness and healing, writes vividly and clearly of all that she learnt through her experience. Many of those she came in contact with through her cancer have now died. Cancer is clearly a disease of our time, the author believes, and it seems to strike with no pattern or predictability. She describes the difficult and emotional period of assessing all the medical responses available, from surgery to complementary medicine. Her choice was to look to the principles and methods of anthroposophical medicine, a whole person approach informed by the insights of Rudolf Steiner. Working with doctors and healers to restore wholeness to her body and spirit, using a range of therapies and treatments, much of her personality is called on to change. She learns above all that she does not have to, nor even can, do it all by herself.
