Nowadays one out of three people get cancer. This means that nearly everyone will be confronted with this disease directly or indirectly. For most people this is a real nightmare. But there are also people who say that cancer was the best thing ever happened to them. One disease, two totally different perceptions. How is this possible? In 2000 just after the birth of her fourth daughter Yvette van Boven received the message nobody wants to hear: "You have cancer!" A life changing and paradigm shattering experience. Her cancer, life-changing experiences, and recovery set her on a quest that led her to research many stories of cancer patients who died and stories of cancer patients who survived their cancer. She was especially interested in the seemingly 'incurable' terminal cancer patients, who were send home by their doctors to die, but are still alive today. During the time she had cancer her life changed completely when she discovered that she was not the victim of her cancer but of her lack of consciousness and her limited thoughts and beliefs. In fact that she was the creator of her life. She knew that if this was true it meant that somehow she had created her cancer - a thought she did not like at all - but it also meant that it would be possible to turn her situation around and become the creator of her health, so she did ... At the lowest point of her life when she believed she would die soon, Yvette found the key to unlock the door of her cancer prison. She was shown that LOVE was the way to set herself free. Instead of fighting her cancer she started to embrace and love her cancer and started to look at the benefits and the gifts. This way she was able to find back her inner strength, which transformed her from being a powerless victim and a people pleaser, believing that whatever she did was never good enough, into the powerful and thriving woman she is today.

From the Author:

Praise for 'Cancer is a Gift'
"Cancer is a Gift is quite simply the most empowering book about cancer that I have ever read. It illuminates the truth with a capital T. My hope is that everyone diagnosed with or afraid of cancer finds the courage to read--and live--the message of this book. Bravo!"  - Christiane Northrup M.D., New York Times bestselling author of "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom" and "The Wisdom of Menopause". In 2013, Reader's Digest named Dr. Northrup one of "100 Most Trusted People in America.
"This book shares what I have learned over the years. There is survival behavior and you can learn from survivors about what helps them to exceed expectations and induce self-healing. When we are willing to ask not Why Me? But what can I do with it? Our lives and bodies respond to the message and indeed all the side effects of cancer are not bad. Many people will tell you it was a wake-up call and new beginning. So read on and rebirth yourselves." - Bernie S. Siegel, author of Faith, Hope and Healing: Inspiring Lessons Learned from People Living with Cancer. His books Love, Medicine, and Miracles; Peace, Love, and Healing; and How to Live between Office Visits are classics in the field of healing. 
"The capacity to see cancer as a challenge, a quest, and a journey toward a deeper affirmation of life, love, and all that matters is, indeed, a gift. It is a gift Yvette gave herself, and a gift she gives to all who read this book. Yvette, your message is profound, compelling, and evocative. I applaud your work, and celebrate your recovery." - David L. Katz MD, MPH, FACPM, FACP, founding director of Yale University's Prevention Research Center; President of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine; Editor-in-Chief of the journal, Childhood Obesity; Chief Science Officer for NuVal LLC; and director of the Integrative Medicine Center at Griffin Hospital. A clinician, researcher, author, inventor, journalist, and media personality.
"This wonderful book will give you the inspiration and determination to deal with and even overcome your cancer." - Brian Tracy, one of the world's leading authorities on human potential and personal effectiveness, top selling author of 70 books that have been translated into 38 languages and throat cancer survivor 
"A wake-up call to all of us, not just for anyone with cancer. Read it. Give it to everyone you know. The message will get all of us through any dark night of the soul." - Dr. Joe Vitale, ordained minister, certified metaphysical practioner, one of the stars of the hit movie The Secret and bestselling author of so many books that his office lost count. 
"Yvette is a person with tremendous courage and talent. Read what she writes, listen to what she says, and do what she suggests." - John Harricharan, graduated summa cum laude, with degrees in chemistry and an MBA from Rutgers University. He is an outstanding businessman, lecturer and award-winning author of When You Can Walk on Water, Take the Boat which was named 'Best Book of the Year' by the American Bookdealers Exchange.
"This is a beautiful and encouraging book. I wish my mom had the opportunity to read this before her terminal diagnosis of brain cancer. We might be celebrating her recovery instead of remembering her untimely passing. I highly recommend it" - Colette Baron-Reid, internationally renowned intuitive counselor, educator and #1 best selling author who helps others recognize and connect with their own intuition, potential and purpose.
"It's not always easy to find the 'Gift' in every moment, especially when the gift is cancer. Yvette has done just that in an inspiring, uplifting and, for all who enjoy the read, life-changing way" - Janet Bray Attwood, co-author of the New York Times Bestseller, "The Passion Test-The Effortless Path To Discovering Your Life Purpose", and co-author of "From Sad to Glad: 7 Steps to Facing Change with Love and Power".
"In over 35 years of dealing with cancers of almost every kind, I arrived at the startling conclusion that cancer is not a disease but, as Yvette so appropriately coined it, a gift. This book speaks more to your heart, and less to your rational mind. It shows that entering a dead end road doesn't mean you cannot take a U-turn. Moreover, it helps you to discover that taking a U-turn may actually be in your highest and best interest. We may not be able to undo what happens to us, but it is certainly within our power to perceive life's events in a way that makes sense to the heart, even if it doesn't make sense to the mind.  Failing to accept that there is a profound meaning and purpose behind the occurrence of a cancerous lesion is perhaps the main impediment to healing oneself of its root causes. Cancer is a Gift is a true gift for those who have the courage to embrace cancer as an opportunity and a blessing. They see cancer as an eye-opening and life-transforming experience, not just for those who have it, but also for those who are faced with the possibility of losing a loved one, such as a child, a parent or a dear friend. The bottom line is that we can grow and learn from every negative experience or situation, cancer included. Spontaneous remissions occur among those who lose the fear of being powerless, according to research at some major hospitals. As the book suggests, the treatment of a cancer is far less important than accepting it as a positive and meaningful event in one's life. Yvette aptly points out that healing is automatic and natural, but it is up to us to let it happen.  As I see it, the purpose of this book is to help free yourself of the fear of what cancer could do against you, and replace it with the grateful expectation of what it could do for you. This is the first step in truly allowing healing to occur."

- Andreas Moritz is a practitioner of Ayurveda and the author of 12 books, including the international bestsellers, Cancer Is Not a Disease, The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Flush, and Timeless Secrets of Health and Rejuvenation.
