About this title


" My head went down - CANCER, BOTH SIDES! " My world stood still, facing simultaneous bilateral invasive breast cancer from both sides as a doctor and patient. After extensive surgeries, chemo and then dealing with the discovery of a significant BRCA1 mutation, there is also a need for emotional healing to return to a busy career in medicine. A world where I now give back with new purpose. This is a handbook of poems and healing tools I used to help my mind through the trials of adversity - the determination and perseverance to push forwards or see things differently. It is an emotional compass for those facing challenges through the storms of chaos - from Both Sides. Proceeds of this book are donated to support cancer charities.

About the Author:

As a Family Physician, I faced some of the toughest decisions of my career - dealing with my own simultaneous bilateral invasive breast cancers. Experienced in psychotherapy, I also realized the emotional struggle through extensive surgeries, chemo and the discovery of a significant BRCA mutation that put my world in a tailspin. I developed coping tools to pull me through the hardest times and complications. I was dealing with breast cancer from Both Sides as a physician and patient. Now back at work I am able to help others through cancer and adversities with my Thinking Cards, journaling, poems and powerful art therapy in a Handbook Of Healing.
