A Story of Courage and Triumph in the Face of Recurrent CancerBook - 2014
Susan Wener survived cancer not once, but twice. The first time, she followed the traditional route of surgery and chemotherapy. The second time, she went renegade, stepping out into the field of alternative medicine. A journey of more than thirty years, filled with joy as well as incredible physical, psychological, and spiritual challenges. As an educator and therapist who helps individuals cope with life threatening illness, Wenerbrings a unique perspective to this story. As both a therapist and a patient, she discovers over the course of her many treatments that what is most successful is integrated medical care which takes the whole patient into account and not just the disease. Wener takes us on her extraordinary journey to wellness and wisdom, sharing her innermost feelings with honesty, insight, and humor. She reminds us that irrespective of circumstance, life is filled with endless possibility, that hope and wishful thinking not only help us keep our heads above water during difficult times but are essential to our sanity, and that what makes us magic is our will and ability to pick ourselves up every time we fall. Susan Wener is a natural health consultant and is is a practicing member of the Canadian Association of Naturopaths, with a Master Practitioner certification in neuro-linguistic programming, time line therapy, and hypnosis. She lives in Montreal.
