Cancer As Initiation: Surviving the Fire : A Guide for Living With Cancer for Patient, Provider, Spouse, Family, Or Friend

Front Cover
"Fear gripped my soul when I discovered a marble-sized lump hidden in my left breast during a self-examination in July of 1991...." So begins this, one of the most powerful and inspiring personal accounts of breast cancer ever written. Breast cancer now claims the lives of 46,000 American women each year, and strikes terror in the minds of many more. The lesson of Barbara Stone's experience is that cancer need not be dreaded as a death sentence, but can better be seen as a challenge to become more alive - physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Barbara Stone fought cancer with the best tools that Western medicine has been able to discover: surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. She combined these treatments with the best techniques drawn from Eastern and Alternative medicine: meditation, yoga, herbs, acupuncture, cranial osteopathy manipulation, diet changes, sauna baths, and Kirlian photography.
